Question: How much does a Greet cost?
Answer: Every Greet is absolutely FREE OF CHARGE, we would really like to emphasize that! We have a strict non-tipping policy. Our Greeters are so proud of their city they are very willing to Greet you, spend some hours and tell you their stories.
However, Greeters enjoy having a drink with you, often in a little bar or restaurant that you wouldn’t have found without your Greeter.
And if you find it difficult to accept the company of a Greeter without leaving any money, you can donate to the foundation to help with office costs – see below.
Question: My English is not good. I do not speak Dutch.
Answer: Maastricht is a very international city. As more Greeters register the choice of languages offered will increase. Please ask if you would like a Greet in another language. We may have people on stand-by who would like to show you round the city.
Question: How long in advance do I have to fill out a request form?
Answer: As we do not conduct pre-scheduled tours, but only individual Greets, we advise you to fill out the request form at least 14 days prior to your visit. That will give you the best chance that one of our Greeters can schedule you in. If you come to the city at shorter notice, please fill in the request form as soon as possible.
Question: Is it possible to have a bike trip instead of walking?
Answer: Yes, some of our Greeters are willing to show you the city by bike. Our foundation has no spare bikes so you need to rent one yourself: the Greeter can help you find a good and safe bike of course.
Question: Can I support the Greeter concept financially?
Answer: Yes, we would appreciate it if you did! As we don’t accept payments we highly appreciate your donations to the Global Greeter Network foundation in order to grow the concept further.
