Tour companies and popular destinations take the spotlight through a new partnership

NBC Great Getaways will be running a series of 30-minute travel segments through NBC affiliates throughout the country this year showcasing some of the world’s most stunning and unusual places in a new partnership between NBC Great Getaways and Tours.com.

Through Tours.com, the leading information website directory on tour companies and destinations around the world, NBC Great Getaways features tour companies in chosen locales and showcases unusual, popular and niche tour possibilities travelers can experience for themselves.

NBC Host Dave Mulligan gives each spot the inside take with entertaining musings, action-packed immersions and informative sweeps of the areas in view, all managed to perfection by tour operators who have been selected for their ability to supply compelling focus and dynamic possibilities in these destinations.

The half-hour shows, combined with distilled one- and two-minute shorts for broadcast via Tours.com, bring a line-up of great getaway spots: Australia’s writhing Top End, China’s colorful clashes between ancient and modern cultures, Ireland’s emerald coastlines and villages, Fiji’s friendly islands of beauty. There are 12 segments in 2010, all airing at various in-demand time spots on NBC.

Each segment provides viewers an opportunity to win a Sweepstakes trip to the land under the spotlight, offered by the host destination, the sponsoring tour company and Tours.com
