Each year, the Image Tours Operations Department meets with all Tour Managers who may be scheduled for tours in the upcoming year. Our last Annual Tour Manager Meeting took place on January 29, 2022. One of the topics on the agenda is to review our safety procedures. We review these procedures every year to make sure travelers’ safety is the top priority during their tour. Our Tour Managers are specifically trained to stay in contact with Image Tours during the tour. If the need arises, a change in itinerary will be planned in the best interest of providing a safe and comfortable touring experience for the entire group of passengers. To assure the continuity of our safety procedures, only Tour Managers who attend this mandatory meeting will be assigned to tours in the upcoming year. We would like to remind all passengers that travel is a right, and safety is our highest priority, and together we will complete a safe and unforgettable trip of a lifetime!
Rachel, our European Operations manager, recently attended a conference for the European Tour Operators Association in the UK. This was the first in person event for ETOA in 20 months! It was such a refreshing change from the countless virtual "conventions" during the last year and a half.
Everyone was so happy to be there, confident that the travel protocols necessary for them to get there were keeping them safe. The day consisted of more than 30 meetings with current and new European service providers. After not seeing or being able to work together for two tour seasons, the reunions with our partners were very joyous! Everyone seemed to be feeling very positive about getting back to European travel by spring of 2022.
Rachel also visited some of our hotel partners in Dublin, Ireland and found that they are very eager to welcome international guests, and all were very committed to health and safety measures to ensure a positive and safe experience.
Here are the Top three Winners from our Annual Photo Contest.
