In 1867 he stated in a deposition that although a photograph was identified on the mount as a ‘Photograph by A.

Through the partners efforts, they created over 1 million impressions upon those interested in traveling in France.
Out of the 64 Tour Operators in attendance at the awards ceremony, VBT was the sole recipient of the Most Active Partner award.
