Advertise with Us

Note:  After receiving a letter from a potential advertiser, we realized our use of the word sponsor has confused the intent.  We therefore are changing it from “sponsoring” to “advertising”, because that is what we are offering you — advertising.  We apologize for any confusion.  We want you to advertise with us before, during and after this tour.
