Bilbao Greeters is proud to be part of the Global Greeter Network, a voluntary association of independent welcoming programs around the world. All programs are open to everyone, free and offer greeter services as a one-on-one or small group experience and are facilitated by enthusiastic, local residents who love their home city and volunteer to welcome visitors.
All Greeters and Greeter destinations share the same core values:
- Greeters are volunteers, a friendly face for those visiting a city/destination.
- Greeters welcome individuals and may serve small groups of up to six people.
- Meeting a Greeter is free of charge.
- All visitors and volunteers are welcomed without any kind of discrimination.
- Greeter programs support sustainable tourism. Programs respect natural and man-made environments, bringing both cultural and economic enrichment to local communities. Programs aim for a lasting positive image of each destination.
- Greeter programs create a mutually enriching opportunity for cultural exchange, create links between people in creating a better world.
As you travel, we encourage you to consider other greeter organizations. As in Bilbao, you’ll get a glimpse of these cities from a local perspective.
