    We had a very enjoyable tour of the downtown area of Le Havre with Michel. He as great knowledge of the city and its fascinating history. He also was kind in driving us to the hilltop area of Ke Havre to see the fortress area, the hanging gardens and the beautiful views of the city. He is a mist excellent Greeter and is a very great ambassador for the city of Le Havre.

  2. Jane (USA)

    We were so glad to have Josiane meet us yesterday in LeHavre at the cruise shuttle and then walk us through the city, explaining the culture and history. In spite of the rain, we thoroughly enjoyed out three hours her.

  3. Warwick (Australia)

    We loved our greet with Josiane and she exceeded our expectations in every respect.

  4. Daryl (Canada)

    Hi Sylvie. We all agreed that you gave us an incredible tour. Your English was very good and got faster as the tour progressed. Very interesting history on the docks, and a nice long walk all around the city of Le Havre. We learned to pronounce it as ‘Lou ave’ and not how we were saying it at first. 10/10 for you and your tour. Daryl, Dianne, Joan and Bob

  5. Hamish (Australia)

    We were privileged to have meet Michel and to have him take us around your magnificent town. His passion for his Le Havre was infectious and we were very impressed. We will highly recommend Michel and your Greeter service to our friends and family.
    I cannot think of any way to improve our time with Michel, we were very happy with all aspects of our tour.

  6. Jörg (Belgium)

    We have never heard of this concept and really enjoyed our time with Florence. Seeing the city through the eyes of a local and learning about the background was a good mixture. Thank you for this very individual tour! Highly recommend!!

  7. Larry (USA)

    Florence was proud of her city, very responsive to questions and very engaging with the group. She gave us very interesting local perspective.

  8. Allan (Canada)

    Very interesting and informative tour with Josiane. Got to see many sights and learned about the reason behind the architecture and churches. The lunch recommendation was the best meal we had on our trip.

  9. Julia (Ukraine)

    Michel is an awesome Greeter, he showed us LH in three hours, under the rain. his stories were especially touching because they involved his personal life and events related to the city. He was responsive and agile, he met us in the train station and even kept our luggage in the car because the lockers were closed on the first of May. We are extremely grateful.

  10. Fausta (Italy)

    Le Havre was amazing with Patrice. We loved discovering new places, listening to the stories, appreciating the architecture, wondering for the history of the city. Enjoying the city by the local people’s eyes, it was simply stunning. It was just what we need : sharing a slowly impressive stroll with a very kind and friendly greeter. Thank you Patrice.

  11. Laura (Nederland)

    Thank you Sylvie for the nice visit of Le Havre and the stories about the docks and dock workers. We had a good time walking around the city.

  12. Suzanne (Canada)

    My husband and I had such a lovely morning with Sylvie. She was so knowledgeable about the city and she had interesting stories to share with us. We could not be happier with her, she was amazing!

  13. Enrique (Belgium)

    Michel was an extraordinary Greeter, the use of a capital letter fully justified. We felt immediately welcome in the city and taken on a tour that masterfully combined history, architecture, and bits of his personal story, which really helped carry the messages home. We doubled the time that we had foreseen to stay with him and still ended the tour with the feeling that there was still so much more to discover. So, we felt that a future visit will be necessary. Michel was our first Greeter and has left the bar very high. I loved the concept and how Michel executed the experience. I plan to meet other Greeters in the future. I do hope Michel stays in good health and is able to greet many other visitors. He is a gem of Le Havre and was the highlight of our 5-day cruise trip.

  14. Robin (Netherlands)

    We had a great time during the walk with Florence. The information provided was interesting and we enjoyed both the route and the conversations we had. We were too late but Florence were very patient with us for which I want to thank her once again!

  15. Lee (U.K.)

    Michel, the greeter was so good, so enthusiastic, friendly, helpful, very kind, and so full of energy. His English is excellent, and we have learned so much that day about Le Havre, its rich history. We would never have discovered all aspect of Le Havre by ourselves. We would like to give Michel a big thank you and a big hug, for spending the day with us, sharing your knowledge, your love and passion for Le Havre. We enjoyed our walking tour of Le Havre very much. Thank you, Michel, you’re the best walking guide we have, and we have been to so many walking tours, and so many cities.

  16. Kim (U.K.)

    Hi Michel,
    We would like to give you a big thank you for spending the day with us, sharing your knowledge and interest of Le Havre.
    We enjoyed our walking tour of Le Havre with you very much, and learnt so much the history of Le Havre from you.
    Thank you for taking the trouble and the time showing us around.

  17. Chance (USA)

    We had a fantastic time with our greeter Xavier. He did a wonderful job and it was the highlight of our vacation. We felt very welcomed to the city of Le Havre. Highly recommend Xavier as a greeter. We feel like he went above and beyond!

  18. Tatiana (Ukraine)

    We really enjoyed the tour of Le Havre and especially liked the Greeter Michel because he is a Unique person. He knows every detail of the history of the city and all its corners, his speech was clear to us even though we don’t know English thoroughly. He is a very kind person and tried to show we want to know as much as possible about this city, we are simply surprised by such a person and we fell in love with Le Havre and we want to return to this city, we recommend this wonderful Michel and many thanks to him and also to your company.

  21. Sue (Australia)

    Michel was such a passionate, knowledgeable, fit, entertaining and totally awesome greeter. We absolutely loved his tour of the city he loves so much and enjoyed all his stories. We saw so much as he weaved us in and around Le Havre and had many laughs along the way. The art of Le Havre is very special and the LH will stay with us forever. Thank you from Sue, Lindsay, Greg and Raylene

  22. Kelly (USA)

    Le Havre Greeter Team and Florence, Our group of 6 arriving via cruise ship had an AMAZING half day with Florence. She was very personable, knowledgeable and easily pivoted to points or places of interest to our group. This was the first time any of us had a Greeter tour, and we were so impressed with Florence, the program and the mission of Greeters. We learned so much about the city, its history and wonderful culture. The racing boats were just an added bonus! Thank you, we hope to return to your beautiful city and will also recommend Greeters to others and engage with new Greeters throughout our travels. Warm regards, Kelly and Jim.

    Claude was very interesting, very knowledgeable, and was, overall, great. We had a fun time with her.

  26. Lee (USA)

    We enjoyed our time touring the city of Le Harve with Dominique. Through her introduction we saw architectural details that we may have overlooked.

  27. Robin (U.K.)

    Fantastic greet with Michel. We learnt a lot about Le Havre and had a wonderful lunch.

  28. Sandra (Canada)

    Hi, We had a great time strolling the streets in La Havre. Florence was very informative and a knowledgeable individual, answered any questions we asked. Florence is a very pleasant person and would definately refer her to anyone.

  29. Desiree (Canada)

    Dominique was flexible in meeting us at a time that met our needs. She was a very friendly and knowledgeable greeter. She took us to all the main places in the city and carefully explained the importance of the site. She was very approachable and easy to talk to. We enjoyed time spent with Dominique.

  30. Maureen (USA)

    Our stroll with Xavier was fantastic. It was way more than we expected and truly loved his enthusiasm. We would highly recommend this stroll. So nice that he showed us sites, churches and even the area where he grew up. Very knowledgeable!! We will tell anyone who stops here to go with Xavier. He felt like family.

  31. Diane (USA)

    The four of us enjoyed an historical overview of Le Havre. Xavier (our guide) provided a delightful afternoon. Xaviers smile, passion and knowledge of his home town was truly felt We will always remember our stroll with Xavier. It was pleasure to spent time with a local who has such love for Le Havre

  32. Vivian (USA)

    Our greeter Dominiquedid a wonderful city tour. Very informative and interesting information shared during the walk. very happy with the experience.

  33. Peter (USA)

    The time spent with Josiane was terrific. We learned so much about Le Havre that we could not have learned in other ways. Spending time with her was also an opportunity to talk about issues in France more generally, again something that is not readily available to tourists.

  34. Deborah (Australia)

    We had a very enjoyable tour with Dominique. She was very knowledgeable and a very pleasant lady. Thank you

  35. Mike (Singapore)

    Florence is an excellent and friendly Greeter. Well spoken english and brought us to french seafood market, brakery and eatery place to introduce us to french daily meal. Thank you

  36. Carol (U.K.)

    Marvellous visit! Sylvie is very knowledgable and passionate about her city. She gave us a good idea of the history and development of Le Havre – especially the post war construction which particularly interested us. We covered a lot of ground – literally and figuratively! We had a problem at the begiining – totally the fault of a train delay and us not haveing good connection on our phones. Sylvie was very flexible and kindly re-scheduled the visit. I want to come back to Le Havre!

  37. Steve (U.K.)

    Great time, very informative. Good english, we understood all that Josianne had to say. We enjoyed ourselves and it was a good way to find out interesting facts. Thoroughly enjoyed the church visit at the end. A well constructed tour.

  38. Diane (USA)

    Sylvie was a great ambassador. She knew the history amd explained all the relevant details and buildings with great clarity. We were very lucky to have her as our greeter. Thank You Sylvie.

  39. Nancy (Canada)

    We had a wonderful time with Florence. She was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with. We have told many people about the wonderful city tour with Florence. If we are ever in Le Havre in the future we would gladly go on another tour with Florence. She is definitely an asset to your organization.
    It was one of the best tours we have ever been on. Thank you so much!

  40. Svetlova (U.K.)

    We had wonderful time walking around Le Havre. Our experience of the city wouldn’t be the same without Florence the greeter.

  41. Martine (Denmark)

    Michel took us for an amazing tour of Le Havre and even took time to do research on my Le Havre family history. He was so sweet and enthusiastic and we had the loveliest afternoon. Huge recommendation and the best way to understand the city, its interesting and dramatic history in a very personal and touching way. Huge recommendation and many many thanks to Michel and the greeter community!

  42. Lydia (USA)

    I can not say enough about Sylvie. Wow. She was so energetic and gave so much information. I never met anyone who cared so much about sharing her city to visitors. Sylvie explained the history, showed us so many unique structures, parks, information about life in France. Sylvie would have spent more time with us but my husband can only walk so far, so we had a shorter visit. Guess what? she called a cab for us to go back to the cruise ship but one wasn’t available for 40 minutes, so she offer to walk us back to the cruise ship and she did. While we were walking, she continue teaching us about Le Havre. In conclusion, Sylvie is a person that gives 100% of herself to teach, inform and relive her city.

  43. Dan (USA)

    Claude was a DELIGHT ! As soon as my wife Nancy mentioned that her degree and that of our daughter was in ARCHITECTURE, Claude immediately took us to the library and theatre across the street… and the design and architecture of the catholic church was another highlight… then along the coastline and after two hours strolling with Claude (who was very patient of my wife taking photos) she bade us good travels and told us of a couple of nearby cafes we might enjoy… We so enjoyed Claude, our “greeter”, and hearing some stories about life at Le Havre. Hopefully more USA cities will start similar greeter groups to welcome Europeans and others to our cities Thanks so much!! Dan Crotty and Nancy Glassberg, Los Angeles, CA USA

  44. Julie (USA)

    I had a marvelous experience with Patrice. Of the several Greeters with whom I have spent an afternoon in various cities, Patrice is among the very best. Full of information, thoughtful about methods for dealing with rainy conditions and all delivered with a smile. His demeanor and joie de vivre are fully consistent with the Greeter mission to make the visitor feel like a friendship has been formed.

  45. Marianna (USA)

    Hi! This was the 1st time I heard about the Greeters. Xavier did a wonderful job, was paying attention to our grandchildren, made us fall in love with Le Havre, brought us with children to a playground, drove us to the restaurant he made us reservation, our son tried fresh oysters 1st time in his life and liked it, he is 5 years old. We all felt, that we made a great friend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Stay well and play the guitar, hope to see you again.

  46. Peter & Jane (England)

    We had not been with a Greeter before and our first experience was wonderful. Everything about this experience was good, from initial emails to arrange the day to being shown around Le Havre. Catherine was extremely friendly and generous with her time and knowledge. Her English was very good ( far better than she believes herself ), and the trip around the hanging gardens and a few of the city’s buildings was memorable. It only ended mid afternoon because we had to go back to our cruise ship. Catherine would have liked to show us more. It was a true cultural experience, exactly what we asked for, and we laughed a lot as well ! Well done Catherine and thank you. Peter & Jane Burns

  47. Tara (USA)

    Josiane was delightful–she was on time, easy to communicate with, and knowledgeable about the city. She took us along, showed us the highlights, and was thoughtful of our timeframe. Loved the flexibility and the small group size, and she spoke excellent English. We had a lovely time.

  48. David (USA)

    Thank you for asking about our experience with your organization the other day. My friend and I had a very nice walk around Le Havre with Sylvie! It was fun and informative, and we really appreciated her taking the time and effort during our walk. It made our visit to your city feel special. Merci beaucoup!

  49. Rosemary (Austria)

    I enjoyed the stroll with Dominique. She showed me many places in the city. Sharing about the hairdresser’s shop was really special, but also her tips on shops and restaurants.

  50. John (England)

    It was an extraordinary walk around Le Havre with Michel! The barber museum is fabulous! And above all, the great surprise to discover that we had worked for the same company!! It was great chatting with you Michel!

  51. Aga (Poland)

    Xavier is an amazing person. He likes to share his experience of LH but also life in general. I could tell that he loves this city and really enjoys being with people. Xav is very hospitable, joyful and kind.

  52. Jacques (Canada)

    Our time spent touring Le Havre with Florence was fantastic. I can’t think of a better way to get an introduction to a new city.

  53. Thais (Germany)

    We had a wonderful time with Josiane in Le Havre. Our experience wouldn’t definitely be the same without her. Thank you very much

  54. Deborah (USA)

    We enjoyed our tour of Le Havre with Josiane. She met us at our chosen starting point for our walking tour– the Ship Owner’s Mansion. From there our tour included the Le Havre Cathedral, Oscar Niemeyer’s “Volcano” performance center and library, St. John’s stain glass tower church, and ended at the Andre Malraux Museum of Modern Art. As a docent for the city of Le Havre, Josiane was friendly, engaging and informative. She set a leisurely walking pace that was perfect for our group with include several people in their ’70’s. We found Le Havre to be a “hidden gem” on the French coast line, and Josiane another “hidden gem: as well. Thank you, Josiane.

  55. Paul (U.S.A.)

    When we planned our cruise with its stop at Le Havre, we decided to forego the excursions to Paris or Rouen which would have involved a lot of bus riding and relatively little “on the ground” touring. Instead, we decided to explore Le Havre, a destination we were not familiar with. Certainly, we thought, there must be some interesting things to discover there.

    And we were right! But we wouldn’t have been able to appreciate Le Havre to the degree we did without Josiane as a Greeter. You were so friendly and informative, you made our day in Le Havre one of the most rewarding and memorable of our cruise. Thank you for you kindness.

  56. Steven (Canada)

    We really enjoyed learning about the history of Le Havre. Our Greeter Nathalie was great and we enjoyed her commentary.

  57. Janet (USA)

    I so appreciate that Florence took three hours of her time to show me, an American woman traveling alone they key places and history of Le Harve. Appreciated knowing restaurants and bars I would be comfortable at alone. I will watch as I travel if other cities have a Greeter program. Really enjoying Le Havre and surrounding area.

  58. Rosemary (U.K.)

    My visit was excellent (apart from the weather!). Karine had done some preparation beforehand – a table booked for lunch and a conducted tour of the ship owner’s house. These were very welcome reservations.

  59. Helen (Gibraltar)

    Josiane provided comprehensive insight into the postwar history of Le Havre, with particular emphasis on its architecture, and gave me detailed information on the political background and the city’s commercial importance. Highly recommended.

  60. Paul (U.K.)

    Florence met me as planned at Place Perret. We enjoyed a wonderful walk around the area. She was chatty and great fun. I learnt a lot about the town , history and the buildings. We were both prepared to walk all the time. Apart from the venicular ride and a stop for a coffee, we kept on the go the whole time! Thank you very much. I will thoroughly recommend Greeters to all my friends.

  61. Stephen (England)

    Sylvie, was fantastic. Our group had 6 persons ranging from 20 to 50 Years. Prior to the meeting day, we communicated on several occasions via email to arrange an appropriate time, place to meet and itinerary as we arrived on a cruise ship. We meet at the arranged time and place introduced ourselves and Sylvie started to provide us with historical landmarks and information. We then started our walk into Le Havre where we were shown everything the city had to offer. Sylvie was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. We incorporated a coffee stop at our request, in our walk which was very nice. We loved our day, thank you very much for showing us your great town.

  62. Rosanella (England)

    I absolutely enjoyed the tour with Sylvie! Her passion for the history of art and architecture made Le Havre come to life. Up until that day, I didn’t know the many details that characterised the reconstruction of the city. How fascinating! Incidentally Sylvie is also an Esperantist, so I had a tour in Esperanto followed by a meet up with a couple of Esperantists. My mum joined us too (our first social event in 2 months since we’ve been here). We ended up chatting in three languages. Marvellous! 🙂 Thank you Sylvie for welcoming us to Le Havre 🙂 x

  63. Michelle (UK)

    We had a wonderful Time with Florence on our Tour she went above and beyond to make our Stop in Le Havre My favourite Port stop. I was impressed with the variety Le Havre has to offer

  64. Perry (United Kingdom)

    Thank you for a fantastic tour, it was more than just a factual introduction to Le Havre, Olivier gave us warm and friendly insights to the spirit of the city and himself.

  65. Paula (Canada)

    Josiane was the best. She was knowledgeable, so sweet and helpful. What a perfect day she gave us. We could not have for anyone better. She came as a stranger and left as a friend

  66. Donna (USA)

    Wonderful time with Sylvie. She was warm and gracious and so eager to sheer her city with us. We both had a wonderful day

  67. Jennifer (USA)

    We spent out time with Karine and had an absolutely wonderful visit. We saw parts of the city that we never would have discovered on our own. Karine was so personable and we felt as though we were spending the morning with a friend.

  68. Theresa (USA)

    It was a great pleasure to explore Le Havre with Florence. I felt that we became instant friends. Her great personality, knowledge and engaging manner made this a memorable greet for me. I wish that I had had more time in port. Next time!

  69. Darla (USA)

    Our day with Sylvie was fantastic and she was generous with her time. We could instantly tell she loves her city, and she has a library of history about Le Havre in her memory. We were so lucky to meet Sylvie and share the day with her.

  70. Marsha (U.S.A.)

    We had a wonderful time with Sylvie! She was so.knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and fun to be with.

  71. Janina (Germany)

    We had a wonderful day in Le Havre with Jean-Michel. Jean-Michel was a perfect greeter. He shows us the whole City and knews a lot of the City. We can recommend everyone to visit Le Havre with Jean-Michel.

  72. Janice (USA)

    Josiane was amazing! She knew so much history about Le Havre. I enjoyed our walk around the city and I learned about the people, culture and art all around the city. I would have missed this on my own. Josiane was kind and answered all my questions. The experience was great and enriched my visit to Le Havre. Josiane was wonderful. I would highly recommend. I will return to Le Havre again, soon Thank you very much! Janice

  73. Roger (Enland)

    Michel was an excellent host. Having lived in Le Havre since he was 3 years old he could give us a first hand account of the history, the changes in architectural style, and the interesting places to see. He is also a very nice man and we enjoyed his company immensely. This is a great scheme, thank you. Roger and Gill

  74. Keith (Wales)

    My wife and I really enjoyed our two hours spent in the company of Claude. Claude gave us an excellent insight into the history and Architecture of Le Havre and we were particularly impressed with the church , designed by Auguste du Perret. We hope to visit Le Havre again , Thanks Claude

  75. Paul (USA)

    We enjoyed seeing the true side of Le Havre. Xavier, our Greeter was very pleasant, friendly and knowledgable.

  76. Jennifer (Canada)

    We had the most wonderful time with Patrice. He was so knowledgeable about the area and truly shows how much he loves his city. I highly recommend the greeters program and especially Patrice!!

  77. Hebret (Ethiopia)

    Patrice was an excellent greeter – full of knowledge, energy & passion for Le Havre! We are VERY grateful for his time & the secrets shared. Bravo!

  78. Gabriele (Germany)

    Josiane was waiting for us in Le Havre and gave us a fantastic tour. She is so knowledgeable, charming and a very easygoing woman. We had a great time with her and I hope we can meet again somewhere sometime. Thanks so much!

  79. Yves (Belgium)

    We would like to thank Michel again for the great LH experience he gave us this afternoon! We just loved the tour and his great knowledge about this beautiful city!
    I will recommend Le Havre in combination with your Greeters tour to everybody!
    Take care!

  80. Anthony (Wales)

    We had a great couple of hours with Patrice and we thank him for this. His knowledge and his love for his home City was second to none. He pointed out things we would never have seen or appreciated ourselves and we will forever remember this. His charm and whitt (welsh word) made us feel at total ease.

  81. Alison (Wales)

    Patrice
    What a privilege to have met you today. Thank you so much for your time and extensive knowledge of your home City. What you do to promote your City is Amazing – we will never look at a building in the same way again!

  82. Sharon (USA)

    In preparation for our Transatlantic cruise that visited Le Havre, I became acquainted with the “Greeter” organization. I corresponded with Josiane and my husband and I arranged to meet her and stroll around her city. We learned about the history of Le Havre and toured several special locations, but most importantly, the love and admiration Josiane has for her home was demonstrated throughout our time together. We felt like we had made an important connection with Le Havre as a result of our experience with our Greeter, Josiane. This articulate and interesting woman made our time together among the highlights of our trip.

  83. Roselind (Australia)

    I was very impressed with the level of detailed knowledge and the passion our greeter (Patrice) showed about his beloved Le Havre. The history, the architecture, the Rugby,…and so much more. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to get to know and love Le Havre. Thank you so much.

  84. Andreas (Germany)

    Thanks again to Josiane! This has been an interesting and entertaining tour. We appreciated your personal welcome to Le Havre. Also the interesting talk about cultural and literature. We hope to see you again. We would be happy to give you a welcome tour in Berlin! Andreas & Cristina

  85. Bianka ( Germany)

    The tour with Patrice was very interesting and we learned a lot. He was very flexible in the time arrangement, the route of the tour and accepting also my parents, who cam spontaneous during the weekend, to join. In the confusion of 3 languages (German, English and French) we had much fun, learned more about each others culture and about Le Havre. Overall time well spend with great inputs all along.

  86. Chlaud (Germany)

    We had a very meaningful and nice greet with Claude in Le havre this summer. It will last as a very personal and nice impression of our stays in Normandy. MERCI BEAUCOUP, Chlaud.

  87. Antje (Deutschland)

    Hi Erik, thanks again for Your time and your comprehensive and interesting tour. We really enjoyed it.

  88. Federica (Italy)

    Claude was nice talkitive speaks very good English and she has made us appreciate more the architecture and history behind it in Le Havre

  89. Pernille (Denmark)

    It was a great experience with a very friendly guide. Thank you!

  90. Alexandra (Hong-Kong)

    It was an absolute delight to discover Le Havre with Claude who was not only very knowledgeable but also very nice.

  91. Katie (United Kingdom)

    Had an amazing time with Josiane. Was really interesting to see the area through a locals eyes. Josiane was really good company and was very friendly and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend the Greeter program to any tourist.

  92. Judith (England)

    THANK YOU Patrice!
    You were passionate about your home town and so some of that love and knowledge was passed onto us ( in English too! I’m afraid the British are rather lazy when it comes to languages). We have now returned to England with fond memories of our day spent with you.
    Of course we also enjoyed our tea and cake!
    Thank you again. Christiane and Patrick chose our Le Havre Greeter very well!
    With best wishes
    Judith & Ian Roberts.

  93. Nicole (Nederlands)

    A super walk done with Patrice, Le Havre is definitely worth a visit. A greeter who loves his city, and who has also shown us the beauty of the city.

  94. Hanne (Nederlands)

    It was our first experience with a greeter and we were very pleased! We enjoyed our stroll, had a nice time with lovely information and as we were in le Havre only for one day, it was exactly what we wanted. Without our Greeter Elisabeth we would not have found some of the little gems she showed us

  95. Edward (USA)

    We had a lovely, lively, interesting walk with Karine. Her love of the city was contagious and we now plan to visit again. Karine was more than a greeter, a friend who took time to share an morning with us.

  96. Luc (Belgium)

    We had a good walk with greeter Patrice. He is a real Havrais with a great knowledge of Le Havre. We saw Le Havre with a personal touch of Patrice which is unique experience you must do.

  97. Joana (Ireland)

    Patrice gets itchy feet but we were very fortunate that he made sure that he was in Le Havre to meet us when he found out our proposed dates to visit. What a greeter! Patrice started being our guide even before we arrived to Le Havre. Due to his recommendations, we adjusted our plans in Normandy and gained a more interesting view of the region.
    The tourist guides and articles which we consulted were very dismissive about Le Havre. They couldn’t be more wrong! The city centre of Le Havre and Auguste Perret’s masterpiece, Saint Joseph Church are so beautiful, detailed and graceful. We are very grateful for all Patrice´s time and energy.

  98. Jeff (Canada)

    Karine was an amazing greeter in Le Havre and took care of us from start to finish. Very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and we truly appreciated our time with her on our cruise stop.

  99. Sarah (England)

    My parents and I had a fantastic walk with Sylvie. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her hometown, LH!

  100. Sarah (England)

    I had a fantastic bike ride with my Greeter Catherine. We got to see a lot of the city and she had something to tell me about everything we saw – history, art, French culture… She was happy to answer all of my questions and is going to give my husband a tour later this week as he couldn’t come on the date I had my tour.

  101. John (USA)

    I was very pleased with this service. Elizabeth was very knowledgeable and responsive to my questions. The amount of time was just right and I felt I got a glimpse of the city I was looking for.

  102. Petes (Haïti)

    Patrice is a very Friendly & Professional greeter. Looked after us like a best friend. Helped us in every possible way. Highly recommended him when you visit Le Havre for the 1st time, when you don’t know what to do & where to go. When you really want to know the story of the city. Patrice has a lot of passion for his city and you can see that. He is available to any traveler who would like to visit Le Havre. I would 100% recommend him as a great greeter.

    Absolutely amazing tour! Sylvie is extremely knowledgeable about Le Havre history, and was great about answering all of our questions regarding this beautiful city. She was always prompt and on time when meeting us at our hotel. I would 100% recommend her as a great greeter!! Thank you very much Sylvie for everything, you gave us a really great idea about Le Havre. Ines

    We had a wonderful tour of Le Harve with Claudia who always had a smile on her face. She is a great ambassador for the city who is very proud of her home city.

    This is a wonderful organization and way to meet local people who love and want to share their cities. I had a great time with my greeter, Claude, who was fun, informative and a joy to get to know. I will take this experience home with me, and if possible, will start a Greeter group in my hometown in Florida. Thank you for this ‘slice-of-life’ experience!
