They cannot either, use documents or pages of sites of the members of the Federation.

Getting in touch with visitors- Greeter

In order to benefit from a meeting with a Greeter, each visitor or group of visitors fulfills a standard online form adapted to each network member of France Greeters.

Each site can either :

● Simply propose a registration of the application and then make proposals for a stroll.
● Leave the floor to the Greeters of the concerned city that individually present their stroll. The visitor then chooses his Greeter and registers for his Greet.
● The site describes all the walks available in the city concerned, the visitor registers for his walk choice and receives a proposal for a Greeter available on the requested date that offers a walk on the selected stroll theme.

In any case the visitor will specify the composition of the group (no more than 6 persons), his interests, what he wishes to discover during his greeter encounter. He will also have to give his details, the dates desired for the ride and the language of exchange during the meeting. All this will allow us to find a Greeter corresponding to your initial selection, or the most appropriate Greeter to inform about the subjects corresponding to your request.

We organize from there, the linking visitor – Greeter. Once in contact, you are invited to contact your Greeter to prepare, modify, refine your meeting.

All these information flows are managed by email controlled by our system of management of walks Greeters. A visitor without a mail box, unfortunately cannot access the services offered by the Greeters. It's a matter of low financial revenue to consider a telephone service for example. As a reminder: The Greeters are volunteers.
