REDWOOD COUNTY MINNESOTA - LOIS Customer
“Map-N-Tour is an excellent economic development tool which provides an informative and interactive virtual tour resource for residents, visitors, and businesses in our county. We use it to promote our industrial parks, infrastructure, quality of life, education and health care. It also serves as an interactive business directory – featuring businesses that support and invest in stimulating the economic growth and community vitality of Redwood County.
The mobile app is accessible for phones and tablets and we like its media-rich content which can be updated instantly to provide timely information to our clientele, customers, and citizens. As a LOIS customer, we can link our virtual tour to each listing. We see the benefit of site selectors and clients who are considering a property or site to learn more about the area and the exact location before they make a trip to visit us!
I commend Map-N-Tour in their professionalism and timeliness on working with this project which in itself was developed all virtually. This tool can only improve and expand exposure to a larger audience about Redwood County . . . Rich in Resources, Ready for You!”

“I knew immediately Map-N-Tour’s product was something I was interested in. For years I have been trying to figure out the best way to market kayaking trails using maps, pictures and video in the Port Austin area. Map-N-Tour provided the perfect format.
I am terrified of technology and avoid it whenever possible. However, Map-N-Tour trained me how to set it up. Putting in the information was very intuitive so in a very short time I had the hang of it. Denny and Map-N-Tour tech support were always available if I had a question or needed help. I have completed my virtual tour and I am excited to add to it on my own in the future.
Planning outdoor adventures is a lot of fun. It builds the anticipation of what you are going to experience once you get there. In the past I had to buy maps, books, brochures and go to many different websites to plan my outdoor trip. Map-N-Tour puts all the information you need for a trip in one place. By adding pictures, video and voice recordings with maps you can change customers thinking from "I should do that" to "I'm doing it!"

History comes alive when experienced through the interactive software of Map-N-Tour. Telling history through the use of this technology engages all generations to explore helping them to understand their legacy. Experiencing the spirit of place for genealogists gives insight to the researcher perhaps not gained in any other way. Map-N-Tour protects the intellectual property one might include, shielding data, documents, videos, photographs, artwork etc. in a protective shell.
Great effort has been made by the company to build the software’s administrative interface that is intuitive and easy to use.
Because they understand the great importance of preserving history’s story for future generations the company’s support team gives extraordinary attention to the needs and ideas of their customers. This is the future of historical research. Map-N-Tour is cutting edge technology for genealogical-historical research and sharing with families their unique heritage.

Midland Tomorrow (EDC) of Midland, MI
"We looked for over a year to find a product that would meet our requirements for an online marketing tool to help us share the heart and soul that makes Midland special.
We wanted something that would:
Package the content we would deliver in person if people were to visit our community
Extend our outreach
Be available to Anyone, Any Time, Anywhere
Provide an Interactive Multi-media experience
Allow users to control their journey and “see” parts of the community that most interest them.
Not require a $100,000 development effort and really make effective use of marketing budgets
Map-N-Tour, Inc. was the only company with a solution that met all of our expectations. Their willingness to work with us in a collaborative development process and their focus on customer service was outstanding, and they ultimately exceeded our expectations. They have created a software package that will enable other communities to implement it in a very cost effective way.”

Bay County Historical Society, Bay City, MI
“Working with Virtual Trails (now Map-N-Tour) has allowed our museum to offer much needed online content in a reliable, easy-to-use and easy-to-access format. This not only increases our organization’s educational capacity, it also allows us to use modern technology to connect with patrons outside of the museum setting, thus reaching and serving a much wider audience. Their staff has been accessible, knowledgeable and eager to help, and the product has exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Map-N-Tour to anyone looking for virtual tour capabilities and to provide online museum content.”
Megan Raphael, Virtual History Tour Project Coordinator
History Center of Traverse City, Traverse City, MI
“I would highly recommend Map-N-Tour to any business or organization looking for an innovative new way to promote their community, tourism, history, etc. The Map-N-Tour software is as easy to use as it is exciting to see. Their customer service is exemplary; they guided us through the process every step of the way with helpful information, valuable tips, and lots of encouragement. If we ever ran into a challenge in developing our site, Denny and her team were there to answer questions and walk us through the necessary steps to solve the problem. They understood our deadlines and worked with us to meet them. Their training materials are excellent; clear, easy to read and understand. All in all, we are extremely pleased with our final product – a tour of historical homes and buildings - and I can’t say enough good things about Map-N-Tour.”
