Remember: A Greet means meeting a local resident to walk around town with you as new friends. The first step will be to talk to the Greeter about the details of your personalized tour. It's not about taking part in a standardized tour, but about exploring the city with an expert volunteer .

Thank you, Kampala Greeters, it is so great to be welcomed like friends, to see a place with the eyes of a local, have a chat in a tiny café and - eventually - leave as a friend.
