A gem of a program & our experience with couldn’t have been better because of Lyn. She contacted me immediately & offered to answer any questions I had prior to my arriving in Sydney. She offered valuable info that helped in my trip planning & tailored recommendations to our interests. She was thoughtful & thorough. We were able to experience community w her that we otherwise would have never seen. Lyn has made our visit very welcoming. She also took some amazing photos of our family.

We had a great time in Sydney with our Greeter Michele. She guided us through a walk in Cremorne Point - and we had an interesting conversation about Australia, their people, the country and its culture. We think the idea of showing a city to tourists with local people is great. So I'm sure it wasn't the last time to explore a city with a local greeter. Thank you so much for the organisation of our city sightseeing. Best Regards Johann&Andrea

My Greeter was Collin. We exchanged emails and phone numbers before we meet and were able to clarify expectations. Our meeting was supposed to be 2-3 hours, but it ended up going over 4 most enjoyable hours.

It was such an amazing and exciting evening! The day (May 11, 2019) started with a positive surprise that Lyn called me and invited me to join her for the Kurt Elling / James Morrison jazz concert tonight and have a city tour before. I agreed immediately. When we met, Lyn and I had a very interesting walk before the concert, and she showed me several remarkable places in Sydney.

Lyn and Caroline were our greeters and we couldn’t be happier. Prior to our greet, Lyn made an effort to learn about our group and provided us with restaurant recommendations and resources to help us get to know Sydney better. On the day, Lyn and Caroline were beyond gracious with their time and knowledge of Sydney. We loved hearing tidbits about the city and seeing it from a local’s perspective. They even adjusted the greet to accommodate our jet lag. We can't thank them enough.

Our greeter, Cheryl is great. She e-mailed us ahead of time to coordinate the time and place of the meeting. She gave us tips on planning our itinerary. On meeting day, she took us to the popular places, and provided history or information. She also helped with other general things, like buying the Opal card, where to exchange the money, taking the ferry etc. Cheryl is knowledgable and friendly, and we enjoyed spending time with her. Many thanks to your organization and Cheryl.

After the disappointment of having my initial Greet cancelled, I'm so glad Alita picked up my request. Big thanks to Mario for taking the trouble to put up my request again too! I had a lovely time with Alita and only wished the walkabout could be longer! Sydney Greeters and the Global Greeter Network is a wonderful organisation and I will be recommending them to my friends and family.

Wonderful day with our greeter! Peter offered us a number of activities to choose from and also invited us to suggest others that might interest us. He was knowledgeable, very personable and accommodating, and exhibited a nice sense of humor. He showed a personal interest in each of us, and we all enjoyed a day of lively conversation as we visited sites in and around Sydney. This was our first experience with the Global Greeter Network, and we're sold --- thank you, Peter!

I had a lovely timewith greeter Andrea, especially since we are both from Darmstadt. Andrea gave me great tips on Sydney, which I could not find in any travelguide, she showed me hidden places in The Rocks, very interesting, we had a lovely walk through her neighbourhood and last but not least I enjoyed the personal contact! That it is why I brought the Greeter idea to Darmstadt last year. Adele
