What's a greeter ?
The idea behind "Greeters" is for French and international visitors to have the chance to meet local residents who can show and tell them all about their very own Versailles, their favorite places, way of life, and city they love and are proud of.
Each Greeter will give you a one-of-a-kind tour where you can learn about Versailles' typical and atypical places, hidden treasures, attractions, people's daily lives and Versailles' major events.
They are not, of course, substitutes for professional guides and do not charge any fees or tips for their services.
Whether you're visiting as a family, with friends or alone, Greeters will be there to greet you and open the gates of Versailles to you.
The Greeters program is a service provided by volunteers at no charge. It is coordinated by The Office de Tourisme de Versailles and is part of its welcome and visitor information services.
All outings are carried out as a part of the Greeters Charter, which we invite you to read.
