According to GPS World Geovative Solutions launched a premium service for destination marketing:

“Geovative’s GeoTours Premium was designed specifically for destination marketing organizations, the company said. ‘It’s basically for any organization that wants to attract people to their location in a unique fashion,’ said Scott Rock, co-founder of Geovative.”

At Geovative.com you can “create ‘tours’, or groupings of locations on a map, and add text, images, or audio files to each location. Tours can be shared with anyone across the world through GeoTours Xchange. If you prefer seeing things in person, you can download tours to a supported GPS device through GeoTours On the Go.”

The Premium service allows “you to create personalized Mini-Sites, add tours to your own web page using Tour Widgets, and view detailed statistics and graphs about your tours. Plus, GeoTours Premium is ad-free and you get 10 times the normal storage space! GeoTours Premium is a subscription-based service, but there’s also a free 1-month trial available.”
