Greeters, a new way to visit Nice Côte d’Azur
How about discovering Nice Côte d’Azur with a destination lover? It’s original and you’ll love it! Call on the services of a “Greeter” and explore the four corners of the territory with a “friend”. Believe it or not, that’s how you’ll consider him or her after having lived this experience with you. And take notes because you will learn a lot! You will hear a lot of new and unusual anecdotes that will mark your holiday for ever.
But first of all, what is a “Greeter” (in other words, a “welcoming host” in English)? A greeter is a local who is passionate about his or her town or region and who uses his or her free time to show travellers around the area on a voluntary basis. Unlike a traditional guided tour, your travelling companion will take you on a tour that he or she has designed around a chosen theme and will share with you his or her favourite places and favourites. Each tour is unique, depending on the inspiration of your “new friend” and your common interests.
What would you like to discover in Nice Côte d’Azur? Neighbourhood life and good tips? Gastronomy and local products? The four corners of the city on a blue bike? Or traditions, anecdotes and secret stories? Choose the theme of your “tailor-made” tour. Your Greeter will accompany you as if he were showing his city to a friend. Marylène, Jean Claude, Danièle, Frédéric, Laurie, Alexandre and the others are waiting for you and have a lot to share with you! So make the most of this human experience and create wonderful memories.
