Superior Value with a Personal Touch
How Our Company Started in Amsterdam
Seventy five years ago, a Dutch high school teacher and sports coach by the name of Roelof Postmaa took his senior class on a trip to France. The students had a wonderful time and more trips followed. Soon, parents of students asked Mr. Postmaa to organize a trip for them. These early beginnings seeded a full scale enterprise now known as Image Tours Inc..
Image Tours in the U.S.A.
In 1960 Mr. Postmaa’s son, Roelof (Rudy) Postmaa Jr. opened an office in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with the purpose of offering affordable European tours to American travelers. In 2002, Rudy transferred the management of Image Tours to his daughter and her husband, Monique and Mike Kasmauskis.
Superior Value with a Personal Touch

Heart of Europe® Experts
Image Tours specializes in fully escorted tours of Europe’s most popular countries. In addition to our signature HEART OF EUROPE® Circle Tour, we offer a variety of other European itineraries.
Vacation of a Lifetime
We believe that attention to detail makes the difference between just another tour and the ‘vacation of a lifetime’. Menus for the included dinners are carefully planned in advance to assure variety and European flavor, while being mindful of foods our American travelers will enjoy. Although it is not customary at restaurants in Europe, Image Tours requests glasses or pitchers of tap water on the tables during the included meals. Our tour managers, hotels and other service providers are specially trained in providing smooth and comfortable check-ins and departures at the hotels. These are just a few examples of behind-the-scenes details that create a ‘vacation of a lifetime’.
Europe through the Eyes of a European
All our tour managers are native Europeans and they are committed to showing you ‘their’ Europe, from the time they greet you upon your arrival until the time you check in for your return flight to the USA. In addition to several European languages, all our tour managers speak fluent English.
What People Say About Image Tours
We pay close attention to our traveler’s comments. Please read the testimonials pages under each tour. These comments provide us with an invaluable tool to continue polishing our tours to perfection.
