HAWAII, USA; BRUSSELS, Belgium; VICTORIA, Seychelles; BALI, Indonesia – The International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) announced today that TravelWizard.com has joined as a member.
TravelWizard.com is based in San Rafael, California, USA and was founded by Robert McMillen. In addition to in-depth online travel guides, TravelWizard.com is highly regarded for their stellar technology that runs a massive library of high-definition videos.
In 2012, independent sources verified their videos received more than 307,000,000 views. Said McMillen, “In many cases the supplier videos contained on our site receive hundreds of times more views than they are seeing on their own sites.”
TravelWizard.com is a five-year Magellan Award winner for Best Online Travel Guide. They have been recognized by companies such as Discovery Travel Channel, NBC Sports, Conde Nast Traveler, Forbes Magazine, and The Wall Street Journal. Travelwizard.com was picked by the NBC Today Show to orchestrate the perfect honeymoon destination for their "Throw a Wedding" show.
