Travel Guru Mark DeCarlo shared VisualTravelTours with thousands of travelers at the recent Adventure Travel Expo in Washington D.C. He presented two Kindle Fires to winners of the weekend drawing, sponsored by VTT. Joining Mark was Mary Ellen Dawley, author of VisualTravelTour “Cherry Blossoms & Washington D.C.’s Tidal Basin”. Her description of the insider local view, and how she had written it, really hit home. DeCarlo said, “Over and over we heard, ‘Oh it’s not just another app with the typical facts!
