Fresno, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
Visitors to three of California’s National Parks can now sit back and enjoy the sights, sounds, historical perspective and colorful commentary without having to drive. Travelers now have the option of seeing Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks with an experienced tour guide while on the Majestic Mountain Loop.
Jackie Cross, travel agent and owner of Central California In-Bound is the newest partner to the Majestic Mountain Loop (MML) campaign. Jackie is committed to personalizing the MML experience by arranging transportation, professionally guided tours, accommodations, meals and additional vacation experiences sought by visitors to the National Parks and Central California region. For more information on the Majestic Mountain Loop or to book your tour, visit http://www.majesticmountainlooptours.com.
Whether you’re flying into Fresno Yosemite International Airport or driving through Visalia to begin your National Parks excursion, you can arrange for a pick-up to take the tour. Rhonda Jorn, Marketing & PR Manager with Fresno Yosemite International Airport stated, “This is wonderful news. Currently, a large percentage of visitors to the National Parks fly-in or drive-in and self-drive their vacation experience. Since we kicked off the MML campaign, we’ve received numerous calls to purchase a guided tour. This completes the campaign. Jackie saw the opportunity in this project for the entire region and has stepped up to make it happen.”
Initial tours will host 15 passengers and depart twice a week from Fresno Yosemite International Airport and Visalia to begin the three-day National Parks MML adventure. Day one of the tour begins with breakfast at a citrus farm in Visalia, then off to Sequoia National Park for some sight-seeing at the Giant Forest Museum, Morro Rock, Tunnel Log and the infamous General Sherman Tree. After spending the night in the area, day two is spent exploring Kings Canyon National Park. From Kings Canyon participants travel to Oakhurst for dinner and overnight stay before trekking off to Yosemite National Park on day three. Introductory pricing for the tours are $849 per person, which includes overnight accommodations, meals, amenities and some unique Majestic Mountain Loop swag!
Gail Zurek with Visalia Convention and Visitors Bureau commented, “This is a great opportunity for travelers to enjoy Visalia with its picturesque main street boasting gourmet dining with farm fresh seasonal menus, and boutique shopping, plus a look into the farms that supply the world’s produce before or after their trip to the National Parks.”
As the gateway community to Yosemite National Park, Oakhurst will benefit from the economic activity and ability to show off their unique attractions as well. “There is so much to see and do outside of Yosemite in the south gateway,” said Rhonda Salisbury, Director of Marketing at the Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau. “So many people come to our area and tour Yosemite then extend their stay to see the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad, visit Bass Lake, tour the wineries, galleries and more. It’s a real treat to have this additional option for visitors.”
The Majestic Mountain Loop tourism campaign has won the Best Idea award from the Western Association of Visitors and Convention Bureaus and the prestigious Poppy Award from Visit California for Best Collaborative Regional Marketing Campaign.
