Greeters are volunteers that love their city so much that they want to show their place TO YOU; for free!
Not as a guide, more like a newly met friend! Greeters can show you special places that have a personal meaning to them. They can also show things visitors specifically ask for such as parks, the best shopping spots, architecture marvels or city specific hidden treasures.
The greeter will teach the daily life of their city and will make you feel its atmosphere and soul, addressing, perhaps from a less precise view, the historical aspect of what a professional guide dominate perfectly.
Therefore, the greeters are volunteers who organize walks during their free time. Tourists are always registered online and when their visit ends, if the user wants to make a donation to the association, everything is possible, but the greeter not accept any tips.
It is important to clarify a Greeter is not, in any case, a tour guide. It does not have the knowledge or the professionalism of the official guides, nor intended.
