This experience is designed for visitors who want something different from conventional tourist circuits and would like to discover Sherbrooke through the eyes and the heart of a guide, or Greeter. Greeters are hosts and volunteers who welcome you into the Sherbrooke they know and love, giving you a free tour of their favourite spots. During these two-hour tours, the Greeters talk about their neighbourhood, their city and their passions.
One of the things that make these tours a success is the possibility of choosing one of about twenty themes for your visit. Nineteen friendly volunteers are eager to make your acquaintance and guide you on your stroll through the streets of Sherbrooke. You’ll be in pleasant company and you’ll feel just like you’re visiting the city with a friend.
If you’re planning on a little getaway in the area, Destination Sherbrooke has deals that combine activities, accommodations and breakfast. Activities include plays, music shows, the Foresta Lumina trail at Coaticook and a cruise on Lake Memphrémagog. It’s also a great opportunity to enjoy the company of a friendly Greeter.
Greeters are happy to welcome solo travellers, couples, families and groups of friends for this unique experience. Make the most of this original, dynamic way to discover the culture and the people of Sherbrooke.
