Nice memory of Innsbruck

We had a very good time with Silvia and also her dog Maxi.

We took a walk in the city center and also some beautiful quiet street. And we also went to a local market and bought some groceries together. It leaves us an authentic impression of the local life here.

Silvia is very nice and friendly, she’s always glad to share what she know about the city details and also her own experience here. Maxi is so calm and cute, he is definitely an excellent companion in our city walk!

Thanks again for Silvia and the Greeter platform. It makes Innsbruck quite special for us. Hope to come again and experience the summer time here:) Best wishes

So we are in our last morning here and we’ll just have a wander round the shops, perhaps get some wine at “Invinum” ! 

We’ve very much enjoyed our time here….many thanks to you and Silvia for showing us part of your city on Wednesday and for the hints and tips. We made it to “Die Brennerei” last night for a lovely meal and their own Gin, followed by Williams and then Vogelbeere [mountain ash] Schnapps !

So very best wishes from us to you and again our sincere thanks. If you ever come to the South of England, please do let us know…and perhaps I’ll look into becoming a Greeter….

Thank you!

We had a very nice greet with a walk in areas that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise and that broadened our perspective on the city, with exciting information that wasn’t just “travel guide information” and therefore all the more exciting. We learned more and many different things about the country and its people while drinking coffee and having a pleasant conversation.

The communication during the preparatory phase was very easy going. Thank you for the great flexibility and the very nice greet!

Thanks for a great time

Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for our greet today. We all had a great time and learned a lot! 

We took many of your recommendations this afternoon. We stayed to eat lunch at Hörtnagl’s. I had the goulash soup which was delicious. Then we explored the old town including the street with the characters from fairy tales. We stopped for a drink this afternoon at the wine bar you recommended and tonight we caught the bus to the Christmas markets in Hall. Fantastic illuminations on the buildings there, and the kids enjoyed a crepe.

Also the man in reception at our hotel asked me if we saw the birds and was very pleased when I told him that we did 🙂

All in all it was a wonderful day. Thank you so so so much. please keep in touch and if you ever come to Australia, we will (a) keep you and your wife safe from dangerous Australian animals and (b) show you around our home city of Brisbane!

Elli was amazing! So friendly and obviously enthusiastic about showing us Innsbruck. She took our wishes into account and was very knowledgeable and personable. This was our first ever greet and we couldn’t recommend it more!!

Family walk through Insbrook

Having a local resident, (now friend), walk around the streets of Innsbruck with our family was a wonderful experience. We also benefited from having an observer trainee Elisabetta join us and share her unique perspectives.

Our three colleges daughters enjoyed hearing a bit of the local history, but more on a personal touch. Sprinkle in some shopping and sites that most large two organizations would miss.

Rudi was kind enough to give us recommendations for dining and activities prior to our arrival so we could plan our two days most effectively.

It was was comforting having someone who enjoys their lovely city just walk around and share insights experiences and observations with visitors… no planned path., more of a where we wanted to go and while we wanted to see at that moment..

So grateful and thankful for the time together with Rudi and Elizsabetta!!

Great Way To Feel A City

My friends and I had a wonderful walk with our greeters Sylvia and her dog Maxi.

We walked around a number of the tourist areas as well as neighborhood areas to get a flavor of how people live in Innsbruck. We also stopped in a store, selling traditional clothing, which we really enjoyed and a local food market. She made a great recommendation for coffee and pastry.

I would absolutely recommend using greeters in the various cities that they are offered. This was my first time scheduling a greeter meet and I would definitely do it again.

A wonderful experience!

Rudi was an excellent greeter and really made us appreciate the sites, neighborhoods, and history of Innsbruck. We walked through several important landmarks, and he told us some interesting stories you really could have only gotten from a local!

He was very helpful when it came to local recommendations for places to eat, drink, and visit.

This was our first greeters tour, and we really loved having an intimate introduction to a new city. Would highly recommend this experience! Thank you, Rudi!

A great experience!

The greet with Wolfgang was unforgettable!

We were very happy to experience that – our greeter not only showed us exciting places in Innsbruck, he also told us many stories that had to do with city life. Insights into topics such as Austrian politics, economics and science were also very enriching for us.

The coordination of the appointment and the communication with Wolfgang also went smoothly, which was very relieving for us 🙂

We would like to thank you very much for the time we spent together and recommend everyone to have this experience! 🙂
