FAQ

Question: How much does a Greet cost?
Answer: Every Greet is absolutely FREE OF COSTS, we really like to emphasize on that! We have a strict non-tipping policy. Our Greeters are so proud of their city they are very much willing to have a Greet with you, spend some hours and tell you their stories.
Greeters do however enjoy to have a drink with you, very often in a little bar or restaurant that you wouldn’t have found with out your Greeter.
If you want to help us, you can donate money that we will spend on office and comunication costs.

 

Question: How long in advance do I have to fill out a request form?
Answer: As we do not conduct pre-scheduled tours but individual Greets, we advice you to fill out the form at least 14 days prior to your visit. That will give you the best chance one of our Greeters can schedule you in. If you arrive on a shorter notice, we advice you to fill in the form as soon as possible.
