MyTourGuide.com has developed a revolutionary new web/mobile platform that allows travel experts and visitor bureaus to easily create self-guided multi-media tours and make them available to anyone with an iPhone, iPod or other personal media player.
“The ‘Andrew Young on Auburn Avenue’ tour offers the 34 million annual visitors to Atlanta a chance to explore our Civil Rights history, all with a tap of their finger,” said Andrew Wilson, senior vice president and general manager of Atlanta.net. “As visitors walk through Atlanta’s historic Sweet Auburn district, they learn how this key hub of African American commerce and leadership became the launching point for the Civil Rights movement.” Atlanta’s NBC affiliate recently broadcast a news feature, illustrating the Martin Luther King tour and the MyTourGuide.com platform.
