We have just concluded our Fourth Tauck Tour. The Aegean-Athens to Istanbul was absolutely incredibly excellent. The history, the views, the PEOPLE, the tour director-Steve, the Windstar, and especiallly our fellow travellers all were magnificient. Thank you Tauck!

We had an awesome time traveling with Tauck on the Blue Danube from Budapest to the Black Sea and Bucharest. Amazing July 4th celebration with all kinds of food (from Hamburgers to Jambalaya) and drinks, and surprise Fireworks from the dock in Cernavoda!

We recently returned from Taucks two week tour of Italy. Words can't express how fantastic this trip was but I'll use one word and try, SPECTACULAR! I can't recommend this tour and its tour guide Florence Hory highly enough.

Tauck Company Reviews

I've had the pleasure to travel with Tauck on their Grand Australia & New Zealand land tour and their Treasures of the Mediterranean Small Ship Cruise from Malta to Nice. Very different experiences in some ways, but absolutely first rate in every way.

I've never seen a program director as well organized as on the one to Australia and New Zealand. A graduate of the London School of Economics who gave up a six-figure income in international finance because she preferred the freedom and excitement of international travel, this was one guide who never missed an opportunity to make the most out of a tour for all of the members of the group. And with a rather large contingent of 32 to shepherd, that was quite an accomplishment. I don't know if Tauck itineraries are all accommodated as well, although I suspect from talking to passengers on the small ship cruise, it is likely they are.

Upon boarding the small cruise ship Le Ponant in Malta, I shortly discovered that my wife and I were the new guys aboard ship. When I asked my new fellow passengers if this was their first Tauck tour, the reply was always "oh no", followed by a number somewhere from seven upwards. I've never heard so many rave reviews from satisfied customers for a tour company and after the cruise I clearly knew why. How can you go wrong with a French crew serving the best in French cuisine and wine to complete satiation? And after enjoying numerous cruises aboard large ships, what a delight it was sailing on a three-masted, 32 cabin, "luxury yacht" that could duck into the smallest of harbors such as Corsica's Bonafacio and Sicily's Taormina and even stop for an impromptu swim off the back deck. This really was a cruise that gave new meaning to "all-inclusive," not the least of which were several shore excursions such as on the islands of Ponza and Lipari and along Italy's Amalfi coast. The guides for these tours ashore were, as to be expected, very professional, but I confess I did miss that remarkable economist on this one.

Founded in 1925 by Arthur Tauck, the company has blossomed from a New England motor coach tour agency to offering trips throughout the world -- by land (including rail), sea, and sometimes by air (private air charters, helicopters). But it remains a Tauck family-run business, now in its fourth generation.

What Makes Them Stand Out

Tauck is a long-established high-quality tour operator with a strong reputation as one of the top companies offering upper-mid-range-to-luxury group travel for the 50+ crowd. While its staple has been European and North American land tours, Tauck has been increasingly expanding into special family trips, exotic locations, and recent award-winning European river cruising.

Who Travels With Them?

Pricing is virtually all-inclusive -- no additional options that can run up costs are offered during the trips, yet this is not a place for the true budget traveler. Offering several different types of tours from, family vacations to river cruising, the Tauck customer is diverse and varied by interest and age range. 

Where Do They Operate

Tauck destinations include all seven continents. Special themes may include food and wine, North American national parks, fall foliage, solo travel, African safaris, “Culturious” travel (for culturally curious baby boomers), “Bridges” (for families), and “Events,” which are considered once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences. These may feature a trip to the Kentucky Derby or journeys based around themes of Ken Burns films, with a chance to meet Burns himself.

Why Travel With Them?

Tauck is a renowned, well established company, offering multiple types of travel all over the world. Some of its biggest growth has come on water, where Tauck operates a fleet of seven European river boats and a number of small ship cruises. Small ship cruises use 40- to 264-passenger-size yachts and expeditionary vessels that can visit small islands and other locations that big ships cannot.  The staff is known for its attentiveness and individualized service. Tauck offers something for just about everyone.

From Tauck

It's easy to see the world's sights. To stand in long lines, push through the crowds, and generally have the same standard-issue vacation as everyone else. But that's not good enough for us, and it's not good enough for you. We believe that travel should be easy. It should be fun. It should be worth your time and the price you paid. It should re-energize and transform. And above all else, it should be beyond the ordinary. Because how you see the world matters.

In 1882, Herman Tauck arrived in New York City from Germany in search of the American dream. His determination and values were passed on to his son, Arthur Tauck, who would realize that dream. With ingenuity and an innovative spirit, Arthur started Tauck Motor Tours, a travel company that would give birth to a new industry. The first tour, through the back roads of New England, was created by this 27-year-old in 1925. It embodied the same successful formula used by Tauck today: do the right thing. Craft a life-enriching travel experience; provide it at a single all-inclusive price; ensure there is great value for money; and rely on recommendations of satisfied customers to build a following and grow the business.

Two elements that did change over the next 90+ years – and three generations of Taucks – were the scope of destinations served and the variety of modes of travel used. Today Tauck delivers life-enriching travel experiences to every corner of the globe, incorporating small cruise ships, premium riverboats, trains, helicopters and more. What started as a New England motor coach tour company has truly evolved into an extraordinary global travel company. The fourth generation of Taucks is now involved in the company. While remarkable in any business, this seamless continuity across generations speaks to shared vision and values.

Throughout its history, the concept of “family” at Tauck has gone far beyond those sharing the surname to include hundreds of valued employees, and hundreds of thousands of loyal guests. The story of Tauck is the story of a unique American family company celebrating a passion for travel – a story that will continue to inspire generations to come.
