About

Saint-Gervais-les-Bains (74170)
Animals allowed

Even if each encounter is unique, the greeters of Saint-Gervais invite you to share their tastes and interests :
Nature walks, villages, architecture, sports and discovery of the Mont-Blanc Tramway or the Thermal Baths, there is something for everyone !

Do you know 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 !).
