Discover the Marne with a resident !

Greeters welcome you! The chatty, passionate Champagne Greeters take the curious on a voyage of discovery of their department. They invite visitors to discover or rediscover Champagne and the Marne in a new light, in a friendly act of sharing and exchange.

Walks in the vineyards, urban trails and tours of little villages offer an opportunity to discover the Marne from a different angle!

Greeters : what are they?

The concept of "greeters" originated in New York and came to the Marne in the form of the "Champagne Greeters", volunteer residents with a passion for their department. Each greeter offers to share "his" or "her" Champagne with visitors, welcoming them as they would a friend.

Keen to promote and develop tourism in the department, the Marne Departmental Tourist Board and local tourist offices and tourist information centres have put in place a greeters' network.
The idea is that residents are the best possible ambassadors to present the places where they live their daily lives.

Greeters tours: how do they work?

The Champagne Greeters are not professional guides, but welcome visitors as friends, for walking tours "off the beaten track" to discover their town or village.

In order to preserve the authenticity of these encounters based on sharing and exchange, greets are for small groups of no more than six people.

This means each greet is unique, depending on the personalities of the visitors and greeter and how they interact as a group.
