We received our Spring 2012 issue of Group Tour Magazine in today's mail. Within an hour of opening it, I had a phone call from a Cleveland tour operator who wants to book a mystery tour. Now that's what I call results!

The Heartland of America Museum located in Weatherford, OK was the recipient of a free article about the museum in Group Tour Magazine in the fall of 2010. At the time we were not advertising in the magazine and we never had previously. Within 3 weeks of the release of that issue we booked 3 bus tours from the eastern United States. Two of the tours were from Pennsylvania and one was from Virginia. We are now advertising in Group Tour Media.

Our group sales were up over 40% this year. I feel that a large part of this was our advertisement in Group Tour Magazine. Getting tangible leads from this publication lets you know that it is working for you. In today's economy, you must make every advertising dollar count. I believe that Group Tour Magazine is a profitable advertising investment.

I enjoy so much working with Jim and everyone at Group Tour Media. My questions are answered the same day; usually within minutes of my request! Their format to upload new images and itineraries on the web site is amazingly easy.
Jim genuinely cares about his customers and continuously keeps in touch with them. I feel like a friend, not just an "account."

With the tough economy and budgeting, we had to make some choices with our advertising dollars. Group Tour Magazine has proven to be the best value for our group tour ad monies - with great benefits like frequent leads, a Web site presence, and top-notch service.

Working with Group Tour Magazine is a pleasure. Our sales representative always replies in a fast, efficient manner. We have generated a number of leads from our ads in Group Tour Magazine and they have helped us create more awareness of our Conference and Marketplace to companies that we would not normally be able to access on our own.
