A nice/Nice Greeter!

Launch of the Nice Greeters program:

“The Nice Convention and Visitors Bureau is launching its Greeters program!
Greeters are people who love their city and wish to offer their time to enable visitors to discover it free of charge.

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.
BONNE VISITE!

    I think this is such a great idea. I think there’s a group that does this in Paris too.

  2. That’s good to hear about Paris, since it’s bigger and more complicated than Nice – thanks for your comment, too.

    Lovely idea. I am surprised they have adopted such an English name as Greeter. That wouldn’t do in place like Quebec. I’ll pass it on to my colleague in Australia. She might like to show this to her French students.

  4. Thanks for sharing the post and for commenting. It seems that the word greeter was used as a common language kind of way to make tourists more comfortable and feel the program is accessible, but yes – surprising, nonetheless.
