Through the acquisition, Revealed America will now be a sister company to JG Black Book and Heritage Tours, which Gardner also owns.

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.
