BOSTON, Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the click of a button, travelers may now explore more than 60 countries with Grand Circle Corporation's extensive library of more than 150 travel videos—most of which have been created in the last 200 days and are available on Grand Circle's online video library . The videos reflect the itineraries of Grand Circle's travel brands and bring viewers to some of the world's most well-known sites as well as into homes, villages and communities worldwide, where Grand Circle brings travelers.
"Whether you are an armchair traveler or a seasoned adventurer, we invite you to explore the world through our online video library," said Alan E. Lewis, Chairman and CEO. "Travel is fundamentally about human connection, and whether you experience it firsthand or indirectly, the experience can be life changing. We hope that our videos will teach, inspire, and encourage more Americans to head out and see the world."
Grand Circle's 150+ videos feature the organization's wide range of river cruises and cruise tours, small ship cruises, escorted and extended stay vacations and small group adventures by land and sea offered through Grand Circle's three travel brands: Grand Circle Cruise Line (est. 1998), Overseas Adventure Travel (est. 1978), and Grand Circle Travel (est. 1958). Most videos range from eight-to-ten minutes in length and typically include Grand Circle's travelers, guides, and families that host Grand Circle's travelers for drinks, meals and stays in their homes. More than 60 videos are live action films while almost 100 are video presentations of Grand Circle itineraries.
To tackle this ambitious effort, Grand Circle worked with an award winning documentarian and film maker in the U.S., a film production company based in Tel Aviv, Israel and numerous local film crews around the world.
