What is a Greeter?

An inhabitant in love with his land that will welcome you as a friend and guide you through the city, but off the beaten tracks! This is the spirit of the Greeters!

« Greeters » are welcoming, and that makes sense.

The Big Apple Greeters were born in New York in the 1990s, and they have been the main inspiration of the local association « Troyes Aube Greeters » since 2012, to support a new tourism way: participative tourism! Thanks to the Greeters, each visitor can meet authentically a local volunteer that will show him « his » place, « his » corner, « his » city with pride and passion.

The « Troyes Aube Greeters » association is a member of the « Federation France Greeters » and of the International Greeter Association, which has 60 members in France and 122 international members!
