Marie Profant named Local Expert for new Princess Cruises shore excursion

Welcome! Below you’ll find a bit about our goals and products. Hope you’ll connect with us soon. 

Our Executive Editor, Gordon Burgett, has authored hundreds of travel articles, and published 35+ books. Gordon guides all the tour providers in best practices as they use the Tours4Mobile authoring system. Tours4Mobile, based in Santa Barbara, California, is led by Founder Marie Profant, a long-time manager of leading-edge systems.  Joining her is an amazing technical and production staff.

We give people on-the-go as well as arm-chair travelers a personal guide through the most interesting places in the world 24/7. Because some people like the latest tech, and others do not, we offer different versions on this new story-telling platform. So often people gather travel advice from many sources, but it’s often fragmented. And when it comes right down to it, people really wish they had a local friend to show them around… but how often is that possible? Now you have a guide to show you the sights, explain the history and legends!  So quit driving in circles. Spend your precious time seeing the best – what interest YOU! Let our local experts show you the way. Join us today and enhance your travel adventures with Tours4Mobile.
