Interview with Rachel A. Najar, European Operations Manager, Image Tours
You recently joined ETOA as a new active member. Can you tell us more about Image Tours and your company’s history?
Image tours is a family owned company, created in 1939 in Amsterdam by Sr. Roelof Postmaa, an educator who believed that travel broadens one’s horizon and enriches one’s mind. Mr Postmaa understood people’s need for guidance in planning their travel and developed a successful business hosting tours throughout Europe.
In 1960, his son, Roelof Jr., opened an office in Grand Rapids, Michigan and began offering the company’s signature HEART OF EUROPE ® tour to groups such as fraternal organisations, employee associations, churches, school choirs, orchestras, and marching bands. In 1986 the company began partnering with travel agencies to offer their escorted Europe tours to the general public, thereby becoming firmly established throughout the United States.
