THE CONCEPTWhat are Stroll Buddies?
So what is a Stroll Buddy?
A Stroll Buddy is a person that loves their city so much, they show Strollers (visitors) around for free.
A Stroll differs from a guided tour on two main fronts:
- Stroll Buddies do not charge any money for showing Strollers around, and
- Often Stroll Buddies have a personal connection to the city they show Strollers, share personal experiences and visit hidden treasures you could not expect from a paid guide.
So what is a Stroll?
A Stroll is on averaged a 30 minute to 2 hour walk / stroll where the Stroll Buddy shows one to six Strollers around their city. During this time there is an opportunity for cultural exchange and the sharing of values.
