Who are the Greeters?

  • We are volunteers who show their city to visitors from all over the world.
  • We are not professional tourist-guides.
  • The Greeter idea was born in New York: People welcome international and national guests and individually show them the best places in their city. That is what we Greeter call a Greet.
  • Therefore, visitors can expect personal stories rather than detailed historical facts.
  • There are no standard routes or rules. Everyone offers his walks individually with dedication and great enthusiasm.
  • On average, a greet lasts about two hours.
  • We prefer meeting single travellers, friends on tour, couples and families. We do not take groups larger than six people. We either walk or use public transport.

All Greeters and Greeter-groups (Greeter programmes) share the same core values:

  • Greeters are volunteers, a friendly face for those visiting a city/destination

  • Greeters welcome individuals and may serve small groups of up to six people

  • Meeting a Greeter is free of charge

  • Visitors are welcomed without any kind of discrimination

  • Greeter programs support sustainable tourism. Programs respects natural and man-made environments, it brings both cultural and economical enrichment to the local communities. Programs aim for a lasting positive image of each destination.

  • Greeter programs create a mutually enriching opportunity for cultural exchange, create links between ordinary people in creating a better world.

Heute machten wir einen schönen Greet in der Kasseler Innenstadt. Ein Glühwein auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt durfte natürlich genauso wenig fehlen wie eine Rutschpartie auf der Eisrutsche in der Treppenstraße!

Besondere Orte und auf alle Wünsche eingegangen!
Vielen Dank, dass wir Hamburg durch die Augen eines Einheimischen erkunden durften! Unser Greeter Matthias ist auf all unsere Wünsche eingegangen, hat uns an besondere Orte gebracht und zum Schluss noch eine extrem leckere Restaurant Empfehlung parat gehabt! Ein rundum gelungener Greet und wir kommen definitiv wieder mal nach Hamburg!
Liebe Grüße von Maren und Steffi 🙂
