Question: How much does a Greet cost?
Answer
: Every Greet is absolutely free. Our Greeters are more than happy to have a Greet with you, spend a few hours together, and tell you their stories.

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.
