Trafalgar vs Tauck

By Samantha Scott
October 18, 2017

Trafalgar and Tauck together are the perfect representation of tours styled as "comfort," where Trafalgar excels  to "luxury," where Tauck excels. Both companies have a long legacy in the world of guided group travel and are very recognizable names, particularly among older travelers.

The biggest differentiating factor for these two companies will be price and travel style - Tauck is more on the high end range, and offers more cruises, while Trafalgar will appeal more to budget minded travelers who are not willing to sacrifice comfort.

Their tours go around the world and groups are mid size to large (26 is the max for Trafalgar, and Tauck offers many small ship cruises, which tend to be 500 or less passengers). Often compared, here are the facts based on all the trips from these companies on Stride, and their Stride profiles.
