Who are we?
The Greeters® are inhabitants in love with their territory. Each walk is free, unique, authentic and friendly ! They welcome visitors on a voluntary basis. These inhabitants share the time of a walk, their passions and their favorite places as they would do with their friends. Indeed, a Greeter® is not a professional guide. He welcomes visitors to his living environment and explains it with passion
The Greeters concept aims to establish a exchange between the local population and visitors. The inhabitants become welcoming in their own right. The Greeters reinvent the sense of hospitality with walks based on the meeting and sharing.
Today, about ten Greeters® inhabitants offer you several themes for walks: Nature & Environment, History & Culture and active discoveries. The walks last about 2 hours and are for a maximum of 6 people.
This offer is available only on request and subject to the availability of our volunteers. Attention, a reservation request is necessary, recommended at least one week in advance!

What do our visitors say after a Greet done in Vézère Valley?
Une visite prévue pour durer deux heures, j’ai eu la chance de pouvoir accompagner Franck sur l’après midi dans son activité de feuillardier, un vrai bonheur. Ils m’ont permis de découvrir deux activités, la permaculture et le feuillard, que je ne connaissais pas. J’y retournerai quand le potager sera en activité.
Bonjour Véronique, encore un grand merci pour ce moment de partage dans votre petit paradis ! Nous avons été ravie de faire votre rencontre. La Dordogne étant notre lieu de vacances depuis plusieurs années, soyez sure que nous reviendrons vous voir très vite ! Bel automne à vous !
We met Stephane at the right place and time, walked around the old town and heared about Annecy’s interesting history and present. The walk was spiced with football and modern scalptuer, and was very enjoyable. Thank you Stephane?
