Discover Pas de Calais with a local: a Greeter

“Greeters made in Pas-de-Calais” are an initiative of the Comité Départemental de Tourisme du Pas-de-Calais, whose concept, which comes from New York with the Big Apple Greeter, is to propose to the tourist to meet an inhabitant so that he/she can show and talk to him/her about “his/her” corner, “his/her” town, of which he/she is passionate and proud.

What do our visitors say after a Greeters® tour in Pas de Calais?

Thanks to the quality of our Greeter’s comments and his excellent knowledge of the city, I discovered a city whose architectural richness I did not know, although living only a few kilometers away.

The Greet has been the highlight of our stay. Our Greeter, Georges, was very knowladgeable and interesting. We had a chance to ask the questions we never dared to ask… We believe we understand better the city and french way of life. An experience we will certainly do again in other part of the world. Thanks

It was a most wonderful day. I learned so much about the area and got to see a fantastic Japanese Garden, a splendid array of architectural gems and most of all suggestions for return visits to the area. Das is a national treasure!!
