Question: How much does a Greet cost?
Answer: Every Greet is absolutely FREE OF COSTS, we really like to emphasize on that! We have a strict non-tipping policy. Our Greeters are so proud of their city they are very much willing to have a Greet with you, spend some hours and tell you their stories.
Greeters do however enjoy to have a drink with you, very often in a little bar or restaurant that you wouldn’t have found with out your Greeter.
And if you find it difficult to accept the company of a Greeter without leaving any money, you can donate the foundation that we will spend on office costs – see below.
Question: Can I support the Osaka Greeters financially?
Answer: Yes, we very much appreciate if you do! Our foundation is fully depending on donations in order to cover our back office costs.
Question: How long in advance do I have to fill out a request form?
Answer: As we do not conduct pre-scheduled tours but individual Greets, we advice you to fill out the form at least 14 days prior to your visit. That will give you the best chance one of our Greeters can schedule you in. If you arrive on a shorter notice, we advice you to fill in the form as soon as possible.
Question: Is it possible to have a bike trip in stead 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 however help you find a good and safe bike of course.
