Launch of the Nice Greeters program:
The concept was born in the early 1990s in New York City, where Lynn Brooks loved her city so much she wanted to help others discover her favourites… She met with instant success. In twenty years, the concept has spread like wildfire all over the world.
The Nice Convention and Visitors Bureau has decided to develop this form of participative tourism and you can meet its “ambassadors” here on (the) website.
Nice Greeters is a free service on a volunteer basis.”
NOTE: You need to fill out a form on the website (link above) to book a greeter.
