Who are we?The Greeters® are locals in love with their territory. Each Greet is free, unique, authentic and friendly! They volunteer to welcome visitors. These locals share the time of a walk, their passions and their favorite places as they would with their friends. Indeed, a Greeter® is not a professional guide. It welcomes visitors to its living environment and explains it with passion The Greeters concept aims to create an exchange between locals and visitors. The inhabitants become welcoming in their own right. Greeters reinvent the sense of hospitality with walks based on encounter and sharing.
Today, a dozen Residents greeters® offers several themes of walks: Nature and Environment, History and Culture and active discoveries. The walks last about 2 hours and are carried out for up to 6 people. This offer is only available on demand and subject to the availability of our volunteers. Please note that a booking request is required, recommended at least one week in advance!

What do our visitors say after a walk in the Vézère Valley with a greeter
March 2019 Une visite prévue pour durer deux heures, j’ai eu la chance de pouvoir accompagner Franck sur l’après midi dans son activité de feuillardier, un vrai bonheur. Ils m’ont permis de découvrir deux activités, la permaculture et le feuillard, que je ne connaissais pas. J’y retournerai quand le potager sera en activité. Christian M. Eyzies – France 24
August 2018 Bonjour Véronique, encore un grand merci pour ce moment de partage dans votre petit paradis ! Nous avons été ravie de faire votre rencontre. La Dordogne étant notre lieu de vacances depuis plusieurs années, soyez sure que nous reviendrons vous voir très vite ! Bel automne à vous ! Mary F. Salome – France 59
Juillet 2018 We put Stephane at the right place and time, walked around the old town and heard about Annecy’s interesting history and present. The walk was spiced with football and modern scalptuer, and was very enjoyable. Thank you Stephane? Mr. Efrat. Givat Ada – Israel
