DENVER, Colorado – 30 August, 2012 – Another banner year for Gray Line has been celebrated at the Annual Meeting and Marketing Conference—this time in beautiful Paris, France.

This year, the “greenest” of Gray Lines is awarded with the Love your Mother (Earth) Award, and Gray Line Costa Rica’s efforts have not gone unnoticed in that regard. “We strive to protect our planet while providing the highest level of service and excellent experiences to our customers,” said Sergio Hidalgo Piedra, General Manager of Gray Line Costa Rica.
