Visiting Le Havre with a Greeters: passionate inhabitants
Beyond our passionate and fascinating meetings and exchanges with our visitors, we are now a true group of friends particularly motivated by our commitment to share our attachment to the Oceane Gate.
We meet four times a year, including twice with the Tourist Office. Our discussions then continue with a dinner aperitif. This sharing of experiences reinforces our desire to respond as well as possible to the expectations of our visitors.
Happy to be Greeters in Le Havre !
A great traveller, it is quite naturally that when I retired, I became a greeter for the city of Le Havre. I like to welcome these tourists from all over the world, talk to them about Le Havre and show them the heart of the Perret Heritage.
The challenge of the Greeters du Havre, this year, has been reached: Satisfy 100% of visitor requests, by ensuring a walk with each of them. It is a matter of finding an available greeter, and a tour proposal accepted by the visitor, sometimes in less than 5 days!
So we made a’full box’.
