Welcome to VisualTravelTours
To make a difference in the lives of travelers and
those who wish they could travel.
Visual Travel Tours (VTT) help you pre-plan your adventures, pick the best places to visit - from Main Street to Mongolia - and provide you with a personal guide to help you navigate the destinations. Hundreds of tours are available, with new releases every month.
VTT is the largest source for professionally produced guided walking and driving tours created for cell phones and other mobile devices. Taking a Visual Travel Tour is like having a friend show you around.

Narrated with images
|Introducing QuietGuides, a new line of e-book travel guides with text and images for those in noisy settings, or who prefer to read rather than listen to narration, or for those who want to control the pace of the tour. They are excellent for the hearing impaired or deaf. Unlike video files, the average QuietGuide file size is under 10mb, making them a good option for people with limited mobile storage.
||The a/v tours are for any device that can play video files, and we also provide audio-only mp3 formats. Our CD product contains all the formats, so families can tour together with different devices. Travelers may choose specific formats to download, either directly or via USB cable, depending on the device manufacturer.

Our "Guided Tours" can provide a day or two of entertainment with turn-by-turn directions and fascinating descriptions of highlights along your route. Go at your pace, pausing the narration as you wish. Our "Travel Logs" are great overviews of off-the-beaten path locations, best viewed before you go so that you make the most of your time. Our goal is not to replace your experience in the field with a video, but rather offer reference photos, so you know which building the narrator is referring to. Back-seat drivers can now preview a tour and become the "experts" once the group arrives at their destination. AND, you will also have a keepsake from the experience that VTT’s tour has helped you enjoy.
When preparing for a trip, most travelers get information about new places and not-to-miss locations by buying books or videos, listening to recommendations, attending lectures, searching the internet or reading travel company brochures. All this is good, but very fragmented and not sequential. Save yourself, and your traveling companions, a bundle of time and money. When you want a guide, look for a Visual Travel Tour.
The founders of Visual Travel Tours were the first to leverage today’s technology to change the way we take a walking tour. They realized that most of us travel with a cell phone, iPod, PDA, or other mobile device. This seasoned management team learned that travelers wanted guided tours and information from local experts to be accessible from anywhere in the world, conveniently presented in the palm of their hand and at a competitive price of under $20. And so www.VisualTravelTours.com was born.
We are dedicated to enhancing your travel experience by providing insider information in many formats. VisualTravelTours.com is for people who love the convenience of technology while they travel.
Based in Santa Barbara, California, the company is led by President Marie Profant, who is a long-time manager of leading-edge systems. A team of experts, from publishers to audio/video producers, joins her and travel writing expert and Executive Editor Gordon Burgett to create Visual Travel Tours.
