Review for Big Apple Greeter, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I love the greeters. I’ve been a greeter for about 5 years now and it’s been great for me as I’ve met wonderful people from all around the world, I’ve been able to practice my French and learn much more about France and French culture.

I know it’s been great for the people I Greet because they have sent me letters and emails saying so. Together we explore a beautiful neighborhood in Brooklyn that they previously didn’t know existed. I take them to places that not only didn’t they know existed but also into places no tourist would be able to enter, for example a 120 year old private club.
The Big Apple Greeters has been one of the most satisfying and fun things I’ve been involved with in the last few years.

Review for Big Apple Greeter, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is one of the most fun and meaningful things I've ever done. Getting to share my beautiful neighborhood with out of towners, especially francophones has been wonderful for me and great for them.
I'm a history buff and an ex Wall Street exec so I get to share a different perspective on Brooklyn Heights than our visitors would get from a commercial tour or a guide book and I get to learn more about our visitors culture and families and make wonderful new friends.
Its been a joyous experience.
