We use the Group Travel Video as a thank you to our travelers. We make sure we tell folks it is included thanks to the group leader. We think that it makes it feel a little more special. We also tell them even if travelers are not into taking photos that they will have a record of what they saw and who was with them and it has great graphics and music. Many of our repeat clients look forward to having it in the program the next time they travel.

John, everyone thought the video DVD your company produced was a great memento for the wonderful trip we enjoyed to Washington D.C. last June. I have heard nothing but good comments from our band members. We all have appreciated the efforts and expertise of your folks in making it all happen. I am not used to having something that is so well done, accomplished with such little effort on our end. I had the poster of all the small pictures with the Lincoln Memorial in the background framed and it was a big hit with the band members at our first rehearsal of our new season last Sunday. That is a very clever idea and it turned out beautifully.Thanks again,Dale Cleland, Musical Director Lake Oswego Millennium Concert Band

The students love the Photo DVD. You app and process is so easy to use. The parents loved that they could see pictures being uploaded and felt like they were part of the trip while being at home.
Christopher Pitlik Alan B. Shepard High School Jan 20 2016
In August 2015, I escorted a wonderful group of 40 travelers on a two week Baltic Pilgrimage Cruise aboard the fabulous Regal Princess. I could think of nothing better than giving each person a video of our incredible pilgrimage cruise and Group Travel Videos provided just that. The quality of the video was exceptional!! A few days later I received a beautiful Photomozaic of the Baltic Pilgrimage Cruise!! 600 of the pictures represented the famous canal photo of the brightly colored buildings in Copenhagen. WOW! My group leader loved it plus I sold 12 more to my Baltic travelers. Can\\`t even believe how your editing department could do this beautiful mosaic!! Thank you and everyone at Group Travel Videos!
Nancy Sloan Talbot Tours Oct 20 2015
I just came back from a few days off and had a chance to see the video. I was so very pleased with it. It is awesome and will serve as a lasting memory for our students. They were all sent out with report cards and I have heard from a couple of people that already received them. Fantastic! Thank you so much for your help and support and the prompt publishing of the video. Will will definitely purchase them again from you.
North Lakeland Elementary Bob Rogers Travel Jun 19 2015
Thanks for this great addition to my trip. I have made my own DC video every year since 1994 and not having to was Awesome!
May 12 2015
We LOVED the DVD!! Thank you so much. It was really an easy way to put together photos from the trip. I didn`t even take our fancy camera along and just used everyone`s phone camera! It really turned out nice. We watched it as a group last week and the kids loved it. Even more so that they took one home with them! It was really easy to use and well thought through. Thanks so much!
Tom W. MusicAmerica Feb 18 2015
Hi John, I received the videos and group pictures today... Absolutely love them!!! Yayyyyyy!!! They look great! Please tell your team `thank you`. This is my 8th time since 2006 that I have used Group Travel Videos for my student trips and they get better and better every year. I won`t travel unless I have them. Thanks for saving the travel memories of my students year after year.

I didn`t want to let another day go by without telling you how very pleased I am with the final output of both the video and the mosaic for the Olathe South High School group. Very impressive!! I`m also quoting another large group out of Riverside, MO. and I`m just adding in the video as part of all future tours for my groups. Thanks, June Bates, ACC

It`s great to get the DVDs and even better with all of the photos online to share and save. Love that! It`s perfect for our student and adult groups to remember their tour. And it`s great to work with you! Thanks for taking such great care of everything!
Our groups just LOVE the picture DVD`s!! So many people don`t take pictures and it is a great way for the whole group to have a keepsake of the fantastic trip they had. We really appreciate your service from year to year and want to thank you and your staff for the great job!!

In closing, you have given UBMS a wonderful memory that we will cherish infinitely.

L. Amos Ray of Hope Choir Aug 22 2013
I just want to say thank you for this video! I was blown away when viewing it and cannot wait to give this to the kids! They have no idea it is coming so I think are going to be thrilled. You did a fantastic job with it and I am more than happy with how it turned out! Thank you so much! I really enjoyed the music you used and the variety of picture changes you were able to incorporate. When sending in the pics and going through all of them to choose, I really had no idea this would be the end product! Very wonderful!...So, thanks again so much and have a great day/year!!
P. Diem KMS Band - Music Celebrations International Aug 22 2013
Many thanks for the absolutely beautiful DVD you produced

Russ Lummus David Crockett MS Apr 5 2013
I was so pleased with the end result of the "schnazzy" dvd that was created on behalf of the students and parents who were part of our 8th grade class trip. I can`t thank you enough for your professionalism and easy-to-work-with staff, with your goal of creating memories for our families. Your work far exceeded my expectations. Thanks so much and God`s continued blessings in your good work for Him

Testimonial: I want to express my delight with the video of my Scotland Heritage Tour of 2012. You have done an excellent job of covering all the places we visited. The Scottish background music is great. We will all treasure our video. Thanks.
Charles H. Carlisle Scottish Heritage Tour Nov 6 2012
Just a quick note to tell you how well that your product is being received. Every year we spread out around the state of FL and visit our clients. It gives us a chance to meet with them face to face and talk personally. The teachers love the fact that they get to use the video DVD each year in their class to promote the trip. The students that see the video are seeing the 8th graders from last year. They know all of them and know that they are now the 8th graders that will be featured next year. They love it man. It`s a great tool for teachers and a great item for students to use. I think that your newest mobile app and streaming video is going to really bring things home. Keep up the good work guys.
Grant Doyle Educational Tours-FL Sep 28 2012
We at Ebert Tours were introduced to PhotoVision several years ago. We`ve worked closely with John O`Malley in setting up this service for quite a few of our trips. Each keepsake DVD has been wonderful; however our last trip The Train/Bus Western Tour was spectacular. Now we`re anxiously planning videos for upcoming trips. Our next adventure will take us to major Canadian cities. We are very satisfied with our memory keepsake DVD`s and would recommend the Group Travel Videos to any tour group or Tour Operator.
Noel & Barbara Ebert Ebert Tours, Cincinnati, OH Aug 15 2012
I just have to tell you how I LOVE the video! Your company did an awesome job. The song pic''s were right on the money. I have watched it about 5 times now and it brings a tear to my eyes every time the song comes on "My Angels Watch Over Me". I am going to have all my girls over this evening for a pizza party and to give them their videos. I also showed it to some of the other Girl Scout leaders in our service unit meeting last week.. They loved it and we will be using this for all our recruitment''s each year to spread the word on how great Girl Scouting can be. I will continue to spread the word for you. Thank you again for your time and effort in making such a memorable DVD for my girls and me! I will be in touch when we travel again!
Girl Scout Troop 10679 Kathy Pumo Aug 6 2012
I was so jazzed when I saw the box in the mail, that I ripped it open and oh my goodness!!!!! I was speechless! What an awesome treasure! Thank you for making this happen.
Stacy Richter Parsons Junior High School Jul 11 2012
Thank you so much for the videos-our students thoroughly enjoyed watching them in class, and it brought back such fond memories of our Washington D.C. trip. The video was so nicely edited, and the variety of photos featured every child on the trip. I loved the opening and closing of the video with the group photo. Thank you again, and please pass this on to your colleagues!
C. Johnson Elmont Memorial High School Jun 13 2012
The DVD is great and the music compliments the pictures well - thanks again for a great keepsake for the kids!

"When I got home today, a box was delivered. In that box was the tour DVD''s from the company you use in North Carolina. Because I needed a lift, I stuck it in my computer and watched it. I have to say that i am very impressed with the way that they formateed our DVD. I was able to send them a CD of our music. The total package is just terrific. Actually, I ended up in tears by the end only because I still very much love my work and this particular bunch of students..."
Choir Director Music Contact International May 24 2012
Thank you so much for offering the great looking photo mosaics of the students. We already love the DVD you put together for us and the mosaic is something else that will add to the kids being able to treasure this "trip of their lifetime!" When we go to Washington D.C. next time, I am planning on purchasing each student this keepsake!
David Newman Middle School Teacher, Ft. Dodge IA May 2 2012
Hi John, I just wanted to say first what a great representative of your company you are! It was a joy working with you! Our video is awesome and honestly couldn''t have turned out better! I would highly recommend this company. This is something that our band kids and their families will cherish forever! Thanks for all your help and guidance. AWESOME JOB!!!!! Thanks for the memory!!!! Wishing you God''s Blessings! Kathy Weaver T.R. Miller High School May 1, 2012

Dear Christine, I picked up a trip DVD today and was the 1st to watch it. Your team created from some good photos a fantastic show of memories! I can''t thank you enough for the formatting and the selection of music - PERFECT! It is extraordinary in every way. Thank you so much and please pass on my profound appreciation to your team for their thoughtfulness and dedication in putting this together for our group. We are thankful beyond words! This will provide wonderful memories for years to come. May God bless you and keep you and cause His face to shine upon you, and give you peace.
S. Garner Shelter Cove Community School/American Christian T Nov 16 2011
Hi John, Just wanted to let you know that I got the DVDs from our Dixieland trip and took one home to look at it before sending copies to customers. I LOVED IT!!!. You did a great job with the music and I can''t thank you enough for including our personal recording at the end. It was also a treat that you were able to include the little video of the Peabody ducks. So, once again, thank you ever so much for helping me create such a wonderful memento of our trip. They are going to be thrilled! Regards,

The travel videos that PhotoVision creates for our major tours and we give as a travel gift to our tour members are always very well done, an affordable meaningful gift and very much appreciated by the tour participants.
Patty Paul First Citizens Heritage Club Oct 27 2011
We have used PhotoVision for the past several years not only as a great trip memento, but also as a marketing tool as we do parent presentations in the fall. In both cases, the professional quality, fast paced presentation and upbeat format are hits with parents and students alike. Our rep, John O'Malley, makes the process easy and is always there to help with any problems. Our PhotoVision video is now a permanent "participant" on each of our trips!
Don Zimring TravelEd Oct 27 2011
John, THANK YOU for the SUPERIOR DVDs you made for the Prime Time Clubs Canadian Rockies tour! This is the best one yet! I am thrilled with the musical selections, transitions between photos, and the color and clarity of the finished product. You did an awesome job, and I was very proud to send the DVDs to our passengers. Please pass along my thanks to all who were involved in producing such a top-notch DVD for us, and for the fun, colorful mosaic photo as well!
Julia Terwilleger Dupaco Community Credit Union, Dubuque, IA Oct 10 2011
As a tour operator, I am constantly looking for added value for our student trips. Well I sure found it with PhotoVision Inc! Our first two middle school groups recently received their DVD''s. Fantastic!! I am very impressed with the quality and the ease of steps leading up to the finished product. Truly a valuable keepsake to everyone on the trip! Thank you PhotoVision!
Lee Potapenko Progressive Travel Aug 15 2011
What a great memory our students and chaperones have of our trip to Northern Michigan and Mackinac Island. It was all captured perfectly by PhotoVision! This was truly a professional display of our collection of photos from our field trip this year. The fourth graders were thrilled to see their faces over and over again in all their travels. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy our trip over and over again. We look forward to working with PhotoVision again next year on our Michigan Field Trip Events!

Thank you so much for the video of our Chicago trip. It was amazing what you could do with our 300 plus pictures and the logical order you put them in. Just when we thought you had done it all, we would see another special effect. Great job.
M. Cordell Trinity Christian School Jun 8 2011
Just a word to let you know we got our DVD's from the trip back and it is awesome! That did a super bang up, very professional job! I don't know what we paid for it but I figure it is worth every penny. They made the whole process very easy with the flash drive and mailer and the quality is great too.
D. Jones Tour-Rific of Texas/Klein High School Choir Jun 2 2011
Great job! My 8th grade students love the memento of their Quebec trip. The 7th grade students enjoy it almost as much, waiting for their turn next year! Thank you so much.
Janet Klein Coolidge Middle School May 31 2011
These DVD's are perfect, thank you so much. The students really like viewing their videos when they come in and so do I. You make our memorable trip live on and on and with such professionalism. At the end of this school year, I will have completed 37 years as a public educator. One of the most enjoyable and most memorable activities that I was a part of is the Washington, D.C. trip with 8th grade students. I will miss working with you and your company and miss seeing our great Nation's Capital.
I have used your videos for 5 straight years and they get better & better every year.
L. Mages Redlands & Fruita Middle School May 18 2011
I think that the videos that Group Travel Videos creates for my students are awesome. I used to put hundreds of student and adult pictures taken into a powerpoint and then copy the powerpoint onto CDs. It took hours and hours. As a teacher I don''t have those hours. It got to be a pull between creating the video and spending time with my family, or cleaning house, or grading papers in my few free hours. The super low cost is nothing compared to the time I spent on the project. Plus, it comes with music which my powerpoint never did. No, I can''t think of a better memory for my students then a video of their 8th grade Washington, D.C. trip. Thank you PhotoVision for making my job a lot easier with a high quality video that the students will remember forever.
S. Haverberg E V Cain MS May 4 2011
I can't imagine touring without our PhotoVision videos. We have toured many times and the videos are an amazing ending to each tour. Our students love to watch the videos over and over again. Thanks to Music Celebrations International for insisting that these videos be an integral part of their tours. The videos give our tours a touch of class. PhotoVision is the best!!
N. Artley Pine Forest High School Orchestra & Aces May 3 2011
Thanks so much for all you are doing to make this trip a dream come true for the children of Northern Light School. You are wonderful...
M. Lewis Northern Lights School Apr 21 2011
VERY WELL DONE!!! We have received their videos and they are great. The kids really liked them too. Thanks for doing such a great job and being such a reliable company to deal with. Already looking forward to doing it again next year.
Russ Lummus David Crockett Middle School Apr 19 2011
We thank you for a wonderful DVD of our trip. It is so beautiful. Great job. Your expertise with our amateur photos and the music made my day. Great memories for life. God Bless.
Pastor Joey Casterbridge Tours Apr 13 2011
The DVD's were great! The students thoroughly enjoyed them and I am sure that they will cherish them as a fond memory of their time in high school. I would not hesitate to enlist the services of Photovision and Group Travel Videos for future educational field trips.

The USB is a great option this year for school groups. It allows for other students to add photos and get a different viewpoint.
The DVD from last year was fantastic! I was very impressed with the cleaned up version of some of my not so great photos, and the selection of music was perfect.
Jama Britton Wharton County Fifth Graders Feb 15 2011
The memories your videos provide for our travelers (and for me) are priceless! They are the perfect thank you gift that they can share with family and friends. Thank you for providing such a first class product at such an affordable price!
Joan M Gibson AmeriClub Director Nov 19 2010
Just wanted you to know how very pleased I am with the videos you produced of our Alpine Countries/Oberammergau Passion Play tour. They are absolutely fabulous! I love the music you selected and the various transitions among photos. I'm so excited to send them to our travelers. This will be a wonderful remembrance of a once-in-a-lifetime tour with our bank club.
Please convey my thanks to all involved in the production of this quality product! I'm looking forward to working with you again on our two major tours of 2011.

Dear Photo Vision,
For several years, I have lead a group of eighth grade students from Pilot Point Middle School to Washington, D. C. for an amazing chance to see American history, government, and culture up close and personal. It is a highlight of my school year and I believe it is a life-changing experience for my students. One of the best things about the trip is the DVD produced by Photo Vision that each traveler receives as a memento of their trip. The students love seeing themselves and all their friends in the places they visited, the things they learned, and the fun they all had together. When we receive our DVDs, I love to get the students together for a viewing party so they can experience seeing the DVD together.
The quality of the DVD is wonderful and becomes a treasured souvenir for the students. Without fail, pictures from the DVD surface every year at graduation as part of the senior memories. It is such fun to see the group that traveled four years earlier as eighth graders who still consider the pictures from that DC trip as highlights of their school experience. Thank you Photo Vision for providing the keepsake that lasts long after the t-shirts and postcards have disappeared.

My son's 8th grade class from Ridgedale Middle School, NJ, went to Washington DC and what a fantastic job "TravelOn USA" did with the DVD photo presentation. The kids appeared to have had a very memorable and exciting trip. So thank you, for providing this wonderful service.
As a parent this DVD will be treasured forever. To me it's priceless and has been placed right next to my wedding video. Keep up the AMAZING work.

Dear Group Travel Videos,
As an avid fan of photography, I have to tell you how much I loved the DVD you created for my youngest son's 8th grade trip to Boston. I have done these types of DVDs myself and they are a lot of work - especially if you have as many pictures as you did! The music choices were fantastic! It was perfectly connected with the pictures. I thought it was nice that you had taken both candid and posed shots! All the pictures looked fantastic!
When my son came home from his trip I was bugging him to get photos from his friends because I wanted to make a DVD of his trip. Since he refused to take my camera on the trip (which isn't surprising) I had to hope someone else had taken pictures. After a few weeks of harassing him, I gave up; but was thrilled when he brought it home last week. It's better than a posed picture of the class in front of the Boston Harbor (which will be put in a drawer after a couple of days)! This will be watched over and over! Thanks so much for a great keepsake for my son's 8th grade trip!
Jul 9 2011
The 20 x 30 Washington, DC mosiac poster comprised of pictures from our group is absolutely incredible! Thank you so much. I have framed it and am going to put it on the wall in our office area for everyone to see. Thank you so much! The DVD and the mosaic are just two more pieces of an incredible trip of a lifetime for my students! :) I plan to get the website address, etc out to the students/parents who went on the trip to make this opportunity available to them.
Sped Teacher/Dept Head Tracy Allison, Ed.S., SHMS
Just received the DVD's yesterday. WOW! It is a great keepsake! Create-A-Video did a great job of telling our story through the pictures. Students will have something to always remember the trip. It is also great not to take 50 pictures of the group with each child's camera because alll shots are on the DVD and they give a website to view the individual pictures. I will certainly use the DVD to promote my trip next year, and I plan to include this in my future trips. It is a fantastic memory to have of the trip. The picture/mosaic looked like a great idea- but I am not ordering one. Thank you so much for adding this to our trip. I certainly appreciate it, and the students loved their DVD's. I don't think anyone should plan a trip without adding the Create-a Video DVD to the cost. For such a low cost, it's nothing to pay for a lifetime of memories.
Jodie Dean West Ridge Middle
We received the DVDs of our trip today. They are amazing! I can't wait to show it to the kids. :) This will be a keepsake like no other. Thanks, also, for the prompt turn around...even though I submitted the memory card after the date you requested. I would not hesitate to use Create A Video again, and would be happy to refer you to other schools & groups. :)
Mrs. Beth Chamberlin Castaic Middle School
What an awesome way to capture a perfect trip! I enjoyed watching my students reaction as much as I enjoyed the video. This will be a wonderful reminder of endless memories we made together!
J. Stambaugh Belle Plaine High School Singers
I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you all did with our video. It was 1,000 times better than we expected! Thank you so much for the wonderful memories we will be able to keep special with your video! We will definately keep you on the top of our list for our video yearbook next season! Thanks a million times again!

I appreciate having a keepsake video of my student trip created by your company. Not only do I have our trip memories all neatly put together on DVD, but the process itself is SO simple!

We received our copy of the School of the Arts Chamber Orchestra's DVD of their March/April 2009 tour of Europe. The DVD is wonderful; thank you for putting together such a marvelous keepsake for them AND for advertising so nicely for Ambassador Tours at the end of the DVD!
Jess Tonander, Ambassador Tours
We received the DVD's for one of our best clients New York tour and they are just superb!! So much so that I am using one to promo a similar tour to another school for next year and to showcase the Create A Video service that we include with our tours. The Washington tour DVD copies you sent is appreciated and as it was an older group, we will use it for promo of our adult tours
