Who Is GDP Tours

Lily Moore Lily and Jacque Moore started GDP Tours with one goal in mind: Create an event and tour planning service for companies and individuals that accommodates a wide range of travel expense budgets.

Group Destination Planners opened for business in Billings at the historic Carlin Hotel, on Montana Avenue, in February, 2002. It started as a receptive service company, called EVENTS 4 U, which planned business meetings and events. A year later it morphed into a destination management company: Group Destination Planners, LLC. By then, the need for a tour planning service became evident as a viable part of that segment of the business. This need led to the company’s current business model … a tour company with receptive services.  In 2015 the named was changed to GDP Tours which better reflects the regional, national, and international tour packages being offered.

Lily has this to say, “Even though GDP Tours is a business, to me it feels like a ministry. I want my tour participants to enjoy the beauty and the unique stories of historic sites; the adventure of seeing new places; the opportunity to make new friends; the safety that comes from traveling with a group; and the exquisite taste of new cuisines. It is a heart-warming experience for me to provide travel tour products that can make a difference in someone’s life. It just feels right.”


“It was my first trip by myself after my husband died and you all made me feel safe and included. Keep up the great work.” T.D.
