What are Greeters

Greeters are volunteers that love their city so much they volunteer to show their city to visitors.

Not as a guide, but more like a newly met friend! Greeters will show special places that mean something in their lives.

They would also show things visitors specifically ask for such as parks, shopping, architecture or a less wellknown neighborhood.


Come as a guest - leave as a friend!

This is called participative tourism.
