Image Tours: The Heart of Europe

Not every business is capable of boasting a 70 year history.  But Image Tours can and does.  The company was founded in 1939 in Amsterdam  and moved to Grand Rapids Michigan in 1960. Image Tours began offering its famous HEART OF EUROPE® tour to schools, fraternal organizations, employee associations, churches, choirs, orchestras, and marching bands. In 1986, the company made a decision to offer escorted tours through travel agencies and became firmly established throughout the United States.

Today, Image Tours is led by Monique Kasmauskis, the daughter of the company’s founder, and her husband, Mike. They, together with all the Image Tours associates, are dedicated to providing ‘Superior Value with a Personal Touch’.

Thanks to that dedication, Image Tours is privileged to receive numerous compliments, from both travel agents and individual travelers for the high quality, courteous service, meticulous traveler preparation, and flawless execution of its tours. Image Tours is one of the most experienced Europe tour operators in the world and has earned a reputation for high quality tours at an affordable price.

This year, the company has met the challenge of the economic situation with an unbeatable program, offering unbelievably low prices for air and land inclusive tours to Europe. For mid May departures, the savings range from $1,200 to an amazing $2,300 per couple, depending on the departure city. Prices for the 15-day HEART OF EUROPE® Tour Special start as low as $2,990 per person, including air. Air taxes and fees are an additional $110 per person. This price also includes hotels, 22 meals, a tour manager, and motor coach transportation in Europe. Image Tours is able to reduce the prices to this level because they have negotiated with their airline partners to provide special air prices for specific destinations and dates. “We use regularly scheduled airlines for this program,” states Monique. “On the international flight, the seating is the roomier configuration of four in the middle and two on each side and each seat has a personal video screen.”

Image Tours is also known for its agressive and imaginative co-operative program with travel agencies that assists with the cost of newspaper advertising.  These programs allow agents to publicize the local availability of the HEART OF EUROPE® tour in a media that otherwise might be beyond the marketing budget of their agency.
