Moreover, It is very easy and open to everybody. The system, which is not very restrictive, is adapted to your timetable and the hobbies of each volunteer. No need to have specific training, you just have to become a member and adhere to the conditions listed below :
-A Greeter proposes walking visits to a small group of visitors (6 maximum) of the neighbourhood that he knows very well and of which he is particularly fond of. He shows visitors for free what, according to him, makes up the soul of his area: parks, shopping spots, architecture or the hidden treasures of the city.
- The walk, between resident and visitor, is free of charge. The Greeter is a volunteer who is willing to spend a few hours showing visitors their favourite places, they accept no tips.
-The walk can vary from 2 hours or 4 hours. This tour is not a guided visit but a meeting between different people who want to exchange about their different lifestyles while strolling through a particular area.
- If the Greeter knows one or more foreign languages, he can talk in the language spoken by the visitors. Otherwise, it is not a must, as most of the visitors are Francophone.
- The meeting point between the Greeter and visitor will always take place at a metro station.
