     I am assuming you are referring to the Tour 1 flight plan download package from the Misty's Flying Club web page.  When you open the zip file, there will be several folders inside.  One folder contains the flight plans.  Place that folder into your sim's flightplans folder. ("Prepar3D v4 Files" folder, etc.)
     You must choose your flight plans the same way as a normal flight.  Depending on your sim version, load your selected flight plan into the sim's Flight Planner.   Open your sim's flight planner.  When the "Load Flight Plan" page comes up, click on the Browse... button.  Browse to the folder (usually called "FP") containing the collection of flight plans for that tour, and select your flight plans from there.  Browse to, and select that folder within the flight planner. 
     Alternately, place the tour flight plans in the main folder with your other flight plan.  Then they will be on the list that is presented by default.

What sim are you using Carl?  These are FP for use in FSX and P3D.

Using FSX.  the flight shows up in flight planner but will not load into plane.  Just goes back to load page.

It appears that it will load the complete tour plan but not the individual legs.

Weird... ok..  might be a case of FP names being too long.. I have loaded, re-saved and truncated the file name.. try this zip (which contains the 3 FP from Tour 1).

Ok that means that your FP folder path, injunction with the length of the FP title or name, was too long for the system to handle. Going forward, if you run into this again, just rename the fp to have a shorter title or name and it should work/load up.
