Behr noted that Revealed America has seen significant growth since the company’s inception in 2012.

Through the acquisition, Revealed America will now be a sister company to JG Black Book and Heritage Tours, which Gardner also owns. All three companies run independently of each other and Revealed America will continue to deliver the unique custom tour programs and exceptional customer service and operations that have helped the company to achieve its phenomenal growth and reputation.

One percent of all Revealed America revenues are donated to youth in National Parks programs. 

Last year, Gardner purchased Heritage Tours Private Travel from owner Joel Zack. The company crafts custom vacations to Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, and Sub-Saharan Africa.
