Media Tours

The Stories Will (Almost) Write Themselves

Sample Itineraries: We’ve created some sample itineraries under this tab to help you get started with your story development, but we encourage you to give us a call so that we can work together on a tour that is tailored to the kinds of experiences that will inspire, entertain and surprise your readers.

Media Policies: We also encourage you to review our Media Policies located under the About Us tab on this site.

Media Pass Program: The bureau has developed a MEDIA PASS PROGRAM in order to effectively process & evaluate the large number of individual Media Tour requests we receive annually. The program requires a Media Visit Pre-Approval Form to be completed by media as the first step in requesting bureau assistance for a site tour. Once the form is reviewed and evaluated the bureau will notify the media contact about what level of assistance HHRVB can provide. Not all requests can be fulfilled. Approved media will then receive an extensive Media Pass Menu of participating partner locations to pre-select sites and attractions of interest. The bureau will then coordinate with those locations selected by the media contact to provide passes at each location. Proper ID is required to redeem the passes at each location and passes are non-transferable.

Group Media Tours: The bureau does offer organized group media tours occasionally based on seasonal themes for spring and fall or shared interests such as active outdoors, arts & culture, wine and food, etc. Contact the bureau if you'd like to be added to the media list for these types of tour opportunities when they become available.
