Meet a Greeter in Le Nord

What is a Greeter ?

Discover the Nord with a Greeter!  

A different way for visitors to discover the region, enabling them to gain a more meaningful understanding of the area, its culture and its people through the eyes of those who live here: such is what the Nord has decided to put into place with its network of Greeters*. Given the importance of according a personalised welcome to visitors, these Greeters – all of them in love with their town and their region, eager to interact with others and of all ages and outlooks – give of their own free time to take visitors such as yourselves around some of their favourite places.

The concept

Greeters are local people with a passion for their town, village or district who will, like a friend, without charge and in a spirit of conviviality, take you around the area they live in. They are the very epitome of openness to other cultures, kindness, courtesy and spontaneity, have excellent general culture, are readily available and have no problem with being filmed or photographed.

Organising a meeting

If you would like to learn a bit of local history, hear a few anecdotes or find the best places to go, then it's time for you and your friends or family (6 persons maximum) to get in touch with a Greeter.

To do so, nothing could be easier: just choose one of the Greeters from the web site  depending on your interests and affinities and then click on the “Meet this Greeter” button. 
Fill in the form with your requirements and details of possible times and you will soon be contacted to finalise the meeting.

The visitor confirms that he or she is aware that there is no charge for this service and that neither NORD TOURISME nor the volunteer Greeter accepts any responsibility in the event of any dispute. Each of the participants is accountable for his or her own conduct. NORD TOURISME cannot be held responsible for any incident or accident that may occur during a tour conducted by a Greeter.
