Are any of your familiar with city "greeters"? I first took one in the city of Tours when I was taking a class for French teacher about using technology in the classroom. For one of our projects, we met up with a city "greeter"----which is a tour given by a local from the city. We were very much impressed with the tour we received. I tucked that away in my mind.
What is a greeter, you ask?
Then book a walk with a Greeter next time you’re visiting the South of France and swim with the tide!
Greeters are local volunteers from Marseille who accompany you on your
walk, unveil their secret places and top addresses and regale you with
fun little stories about the enigmatic Marseille-Provence area.
The Greeters are committed to offering a hospitable welcome,
familiarizing visitors with their city and fostering friendly
encounters and exchanges.
What’s more, the Association Marseille Provence Greeters organises
your walk with a Greeter! Donation on appraisal to help the
organization of the Association.
Now in a week (exactly one week from today) I am set to meet with a greeter in Marseille.
Do any of you have GREETER experiences in France? It's a fabulous way to take a tour without paying "la peau de fesses."
