“Gozaic helps people find cultural and heritage experiences on the road, or in their hometown backyards,” says Scott Gerloff, president and CEO of Heritage Travel Inc., a for-profit subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the parent organization of Gozaic. “These enhancements were created so visitors can learn more about their favorite places, and explore lesser-known destinations.”
On Gozaic, travelers can also book Guided Tours. From hiking in the Canadian Rockies and biking in Tuscany to architectural tours in Chicago and archaeological explorations in Colorado, Gozaic’s tours appeal to a variety of interests.
