    Want to know more about the Greeters® ? It is a global community of inhabitants who voluntarily welcome anyone wishing to discover a territory from the point of view of a local.
    Meeting a Greeter is the promise of a memorable moment with a loving, passionate volunteer and ambassador of their city or region. Greeters enjoy welcoming visitors as they would welcoming friends or relatives. They offer their time to discover the places they love, tell their story, their neighborhood or village and share their way of experiencing their everyday life.

    Do not be mistaken, Greeters are not professional guides ! The places you will cross are only a pretext to meet, and a way to better understand how the local inhabitants live. Come alone or in a group of up to six people for a walk or just enjoy a chat over a drink.

    If you believe that travel can be a vector of peace and better understanding between people, meeting a Greeter is for you ! Our community share the idea that travelling should be an opportunity for a real exchange between populations and visitors and that this should not be exclusively an act of consumption. Do not look for a price, meeting a Greeter is 100% free (yes, for real !).
    The greeters welcome anyone without discrimination within the limit of 6 people maximum.
    How to register for a Greeter® walk :
    Make your request to meet with a Greeter® well in advance (15 days minimum). This gives us time to meet your exact expectations and find an available Greeter®.
    As soon as the registration form is sent, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail. Our proposal will follow. After mutual confirmation, you will receive the contact details of your Greeter®.
    Contact him. It's time to get to know each other better to make your Greeters® walk a memorable moment of your stay.
    Limited to 6 people maximum.

    Would you like to discover Cannes differently, in the company of a local ? Are you a student, adventurer, blogger-influencer or maybe even a newcomer just settled in? Greeters® welcome anyone without discrimination to share a friendly moment in their company. With a Greeters® you will be welcomed as a friend and discover together, often during a walk, nice places that sometimes evoke memories, anecdotes of everyday life. Don't be mistaken, our volunteers are not tour guides but amateurs. With a Greeter, you will simply benefit from the subjective point of view of a local passionate about his city and eager to welcome you and share a moment with you. Of course, the meeting is (really) free, because we wouldn't charge our friends or family. The best way to thank your Greeter? Offer him a coffee, invite him to lunch, spread the word around you ! Did you know that Greeters® are present all over the world and have been welcoming travelers on a voluntary basis since 1992 ? If this movement started in New York, it quickly developed in France. Today there are nearly a hundred communities of inhabitants just waiting for you in France alone !
