Greeters, discover differently
Who are Greeters?
Greeters are local residents who love their town and wish to be of help to small groups of tourists in its discovery in an unusual way and can share with outside visitors their knowledge of places of interest & local attractions.
The English word "greeter" means "host, someone who receives".
Notwithstanding the fact that none of these town residents are professional tour guides, they are well equipped in passing along their Town’s deep personal knowledge to the visiting guests.
They can give recommendations and provide advice about the best places worth of discovery, therefore recommending visits to spots that tourists may rarely have heard about and often never get to visit/see.
Lynn Brooks, a New Yorker, came up with the concept and idea of Greeters in the 1990s.
From then onwards this new form of tourism, based on user-friendliness and meeting each other, has spread out and continues to grow throughout the world.
