My family of 5 has taken 2 Tauck trips, and just signed up for a 3rd. I have not used any competitor tour companies, so I can not compare. I have been told that Tauck is a B+ level tour company. But don't let that fool you. I think it rates an A. All details are covered. You pay for the Tour that you choose, get your air tickets, and Tauck takes care of the rest. Even the transfers from the airport to the start location hotel and from the end location hotel to the departure airport (they are often different airports depending upon which Tour you take). I love that once you pay for the trip, even tips and wifi use (for the hotels that offer wifi) are covered. All you need pay for are hotel incidentals. Activities are spaced out nicely. Each day starts a bit early so you can see all that is planned. It is a hustle and bustle itinerary, but worth it if you want to see and explore the area you have chosen. If you want to sit on your butt at a nice resort and be a vacationing vegetable, this is not the tour company for you.

I wish there was something higher than "Highly Recommended" to address our experience with Tauck. As some one said immediately on deplaning when the "Tauck" sign appears at the pick up area all the anxiety and hassle of long travels vanishes. We know we will be taken care of. In addition the comprehensive price leaves nothing to worry about. The quality of Tauck staff is excellent. This was our first time with Tauck and it will not be our last.

Pricey and worth it

By: Ray B

Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2013

Tauck tours are not for the budget minded. They stay at some of the finest hotels, eat at first rate restaurants (most meals are usually provided) and gain admittance to attractions that other tour operators and individuals are not able to access. Their leaders are highly qualified and very affable, and the tour compositions are well crafted. If you can afford the price, Tauck is clearly the way to go.

This was my first trip with Tauck. The company deserves the fine reputation it has. Staff were knowledgeable, very pleasant and responsive, well prepared for each day and each of the many cities we visited. Enrichment lectures and local groups invited on board added to my appreciation of each part of the journey.

Riverboat on the Seine

Tauck is wonderful. That was our 7th of 8th Tauck trip. Riverboat and land only with Tauck. They always provide the unexpected, like a trip to the local fish market . With the captain leading the way, we arrived at the market to find platters of local fresh seafood waiting for us, accompanied by the appropriate wine. Also Tauck had arranged for our group to arrive 30 minutes prior to opening at Monet's Gardens for picture taking. Who else would take 32 people on the train from Paris to London, for a little sightseeing and fine dining. Best part everything is included. When disembarked, we owed Tauck nothing.

By: Schmidly

Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2017

The Tauck operators & bus driver ,tour guide Jim Sunby were terrific ! Great insight into wherever we were, knowledgeable , on the history , topography , the geology of the Grand Tetons & Yellowstone . He would be the reason we would ever use Tauck again. Insightful ,funny & very easily relatable. Knew the small details of where to go & when to avoid the crowds , and where the best coffee & pie stops on our over 1000 mile trip in 7 days . Great asset to Tauck ! Now that being said , and greatly disappointed in the accommodations based upon the lack of value at price charged. The accommodations in the National Park areunderstandably pedestrian , but the I did not expect a cabin that could have been out of the 50's at the Jackson Lake Lodge ! Especially since Tauck wanted to charge me over $300 more for the 2 extra nights pre-tour above and beyond the published rates. The food was best described as a commissary at any public institution anywhere. The Ucross Ranch was great though .

Once again I had a great experience with Tauck. From the time the Limo picked us up at the airport to being dropped off at the end it was a wonderful trip. Love the trip to Churchill Downs & the Kentucky Horse Park. The drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway & the trip through the Great Smoky Mtns, provided some beautiful scenery. The Shaker Village & the Hermitage are both well worth the time. Great hotels & restaurants as usual. Had a wonderful time at the Grand Ole Opry also.

The national parks and monuments were very special. The trip outside of the parks was sub standard. Days were spent with what my husband and I considered "filler". More days should have been spent in Yellowstone. Cody, Wyoming Holiday in was in terrible condition. The restaurant for dinner was below our standard for decent dining. The lunch at the T-A ranch was almost non edible. The food must have been sitting out for a long time to be that dried out. When we arrived we paid extra to be picked up at the airport. No one from the company had our name and it took many phone calls to get that straightened out.

Tauck is an excellent company. I was on a European river cruise with the company. EVERYTHING is included on a river cruise and even if the tour is going to be in a town for the day instead of returning to the ship, we were given money to purchase lunch on our own! The cruise director and her tour directors were very knowledgeable and helpful. The tours were well orchestrated and they always kept track of all the people to make sure no one was left behind. In most of the towns we had time after the walking tours to walk or shop on our own. My room steward was awesome and very friendly and when I mentioned that I prefer dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate for my evening treats, she started giving me dark chocolate!! The stewards in the lounges and dining room learn your preferences if you have the same things all the time. Food was excellent with good options and you can order whatever you want or mix and match food items.

My experience with Tauck Tours was exceptional from the beginning to the very end. Starting in Paris on my own and staying in the hotel that Tauck guests would be using was more than I could have dreamed. Location, courtesy, amenities were the best ever. After meeting up with the tour directors and other guests of the tour at our welcome dinner every single day was above and beyond my wildest dreams of what I could experience on my trip from Paris to Normandy. There was nothing left undone. Our cruise director, Tauck tour guides as well as local tour guides and crew were so kind and knowledgeable beyond words. I felt like a pampered queen for 7 Days.

They meet you at the airport when you begin and take you there when you end. Everything in between runs like the proverbial Swiss watch. For their Classic Italy tour, you had better be in good shape. They start early, end late, and there is a good deal of walking in-between. The hotels, food, and beverages were exceptional. The tours were well organized and very informative. Some of the tour guides had difficulty with English. Another difficulty is that you can be turned loose for your free time when you are at some distance from the hotel and do not have a good sense of how to get back. I am picking at nits here. Everything else was professionally done. They are expensive but we did not feel cheated in the least.

Ireland and Scotland


Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2017

We have traveled with Tauck previously, so felt we knew the ins-and-outs. This trip included two back-to-back tours with friends. The Tour Directors were excellent, even exceptional, in both cases. Local guides were also excellently exceptional. The bus drivers also excellent. Hotels were of high quality and service at hotels usually top-notch. Ashford Castle was a real plus but understand Tauck is considering eliminating that stay which would be a disappointment. There are several issues that were unclear when looking at the specifics of the Irish trip in that we spent too much time on the bus driving from place to place. Kinsale, a wonderful location, which we knew from a previous trip, wasn't included, yet visits to Waterford and Belleek were. Personally could have done without those stops but others enjoyed. We would have preferred a choice. Wish Tauck would limit the numbers as there were almost 40 on the Irish part. Lovely people but thirty would have been more pleasant.

Tauck River Cruise Budapest to Amsterdam

Reviewed on: 30 Oct 2017

I cannot say enough about Tauck. It was "top shelf" everything. The customer service was outstanding. The food, drinks, and accommodations were tops. The cruise directors and the guides were fantastic. We enjoyed them all. The Esprit staff were also amazing and we so courteous and accommodating. The only thing that I would recommend is to have some pharmaceutical "over the counter" medications in the ship "shop". Sundries like Advil, Aleve, Tylenol, Mucinex, Nyquil, etc. would have been very helpful. Everyone on the ship was sick at one time or another and had to go to shore to purchase unfamiliar products with foreign currency. It would be very nice if there were American over-the-counter goods and if travelers could sign a waiver so that the ship/crew/Tauck are not held liable. This would have made an enormous improvement on this long cruise for everyone involved.

From the moment our Tauck representative picked us up at the Amsterdam airport until we were transported to the airport in Zurich, we were made to feel special and pampered. The thing that most impresses us about Tauck is the attention to detail and the quality of those details: fresh flowers in our room, positive attitudes by all staff, security, directors, tour guides, fabulously fresh food presented so beautifully, the enthusiasm and passion of the chef for her creations , chocolates and warm towels after a cold rainy day touring......I could go on and on. This was our first experience with river cruising and with Tauck, both of which exceeded our expectations. The itinerary provided us incredible exposure to old and new cultures, to small towns and villages and to larger cities. Love that the wine steward went into to town at each stop to purchase local wines that would compliment our evening meal, wines that we would not be able to buy anywhere else. Can't beat that!

Having taken 6 ocean cruises with Seabourn over the past 4 years, my wife & I have been spoiled by Seabourn's luxury standards.  We selected Tauck for our first river cruise on the advice of our Virtuoso travel agent - he said Tauck would be the closest to Seabourn's standards.  Our 2-week cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest was outstanding, & Tauck even did a better job than Seabourn in organizing the excellent daily excursions.  All staff members were warm, friendly & helpful.  We had upgraded to the largest cabin (300 sq ft)  to match Seabourn but found the space to be quite a bit less comfortable:  cramped, poorly laid out bathroom; wasted, poorly laid out main living space; poor walk-in closet; inadequate storage everywhere.  More surprising were the meals: generally OK at breakfast & lunch, but almost mediocre at dinner (especially the entrees); wine selections were uninspiring.  Nevertheless, a wonderful experience.

I would not recommend Tauck for this particular trip in that we feel we did not get fair value for our money in that Tauck's position is they give more so you pay more.  We did not find that true on this particular trip, whereas the trip to Italy was worth every penny extra for the special things done in visiting the Sistine Chapel and the Uffizi Museum. This trip we were one (two) among literally thousands of people visiting the sights and therefore could not see them well enough  to appreciate and enjoy.  Our guides were awesome.  But they could do nothing about the crowds.  If Tauck can arrange a private tour of the Sistine Chapel, it would seem they could do something special for all the places in London and Paris which were incredibly crowded on our trip.

I feel Tauck should have provided some kind of service for us. We were not alone. There were a number of us just sitting in the hotel lobby. We had to handle our own luggage and only had access to it if we could find the bell boy. We were not offered anything from the hotel in regards to refreshment.

There were so many memorable experiences we had on our first Tauck River Cruise (from Amsterdam to Budapest) that it's nearly impossible to pick out one favorite. For us, taking our first trip with Tauck, we both agreed the "all inclusiveness" of the trip expenses was perhaps tops on our list, meaning that for us the trip was very relaxing and nearly worry-free. We were able to concentrate each day on new places and new faces. We thoroughly enjoyed the third day when we leisurely cruised along the Rhine River catching sight of all the castles around each bend. The numerous excursions we went on daily took our breath away with everything we saw along the way. If we take another river cruise, it will be with Tauck ... and we would highly recommend the one we went on to anyone considering this trip.

Overall a great trip. We saw so much in 3 weeks! We had a wonderful guide, Pablo who made the atmosphere fun and interesting. The group was great also. I don't think I would take such a long trip covering so many sites again. It was very tiring. We've discovered that we like to stay in one place for 3-4 days so we can get more of a feel for the individual cities. The one criticism I would have of Tauck on this trip is that there was very little time for shopping. It was always part of a bathroom break; 10-30 minutes. Not much, if you want to buy anything beyond a souvenir. Also, I think the Alhambra Palace Hotel should be replaced. The rooms are very out dated. Have the group go for lunch or dinner there instead. Otherwise, lots of food and some wonderful restaurants.

Top Drawer River Cruising

We just completed our third Tauck river tour, and continue to think they are simply the best in the industry. This most recent cruise was on the Danube, and we had several opportunities to talk to travelers on other companies' ships on this massively popular route. None of them had anything like the "Tauck exclusive" evenings (a dinner in a Vienna palace comes to mind), most had many more passengers onboard, and at least one had much larger land tour groups than we had. Tauck's ships are comfortable, their cruise directors are terrific, and their local tour guides are some of the best we have seen. We also really like their all-inclusive pricing, which lets us travel without worrying about additional costs. Can't really imagine river cruising with anyone else at this point.

It was almost like being on your own private cruise ship, got to know the crew, the Tauck representatives and the other passengers like they were family, It could not have been a better trip for getting to know your great traveling companions, which is always an unknown when planning a trip. With Taucks attention to all the details we got to see the river towns without a worry. All there "special treats" were amazing. Dinner and entertainment a Viennese Palace, entertainment of all kinds almost every night from the local towns, Wine tasting in the Wurzburg Palace, burnt beer tastings in Bamberg after a bicycle tour of the town, and all the included tours to the unbelievable venues made the trip one to remember.

Great Trip

By: Sid

Reviewed on: 02 Jan 2017

Aldine Travel booked family of 12 on a Tauck tour to the Galapagos. We had a great time on board their ship, the Santa Cruz II. The ship held 90 passengers and there were 78 folks on this trip. Several other large family groups. The people were great and enjoyable to be with. People enjoyed each other's company, the ages ranged from 8 to 75+. The accommodations and public spaces were very comfortable. This was our first cruise and we will probably cruise again in a ship that was similar to this size, we have no interest in a larger vessel. The food was plentiful and diverse but sometimes rather bland. There was never a lack of variety at any meal, however. We will definitely take another Tauck tour. The staff was engaging and professional, very knowledgeable in their respective fields.

This has been our tenth tour with Tauck. Our experience has always been outstanding and this trip was no exception.

We did have rain and drizzle but it was to be expected in April. Our first Tauck tour leader many years ago had an expression he used when things were not exactly right at a hotel or restaurant - "It was not up to Tauck expectations" . And now, whenever we take a tour, cruise or road trip we will turn to each other and say " not up to Tauck expectations". We highly recommend Tauck for a wonderful tour experience.

This was a new trip and there were several glitches. When we departed Florence the Tauck book said to meet the driver at the train station, inside at the ticket depot. No Tauck representative was there and we were 30 minutes early. Bill called the office and Tauck said we were to be outside the pharmacy. No representative was visible. Finally found him outside the depot and we had all been given different info. Two other couples had been picked up in Florence at their hotel and driven to the first Tauck lodging. One vehicle could have transported everyone. Gubbio should not be included for an overnight stay. The hotel was really a poor representation of Tauck. The hotel door and bathroom doors would not stay closed unless you locked them. The last day, when our luggage was picked up early, we returned to our room to get our carry on pieces and the doors were wide open. The itinerary was ambitious and several days we arrived at our destination with minutes to get ready for dinner.

Our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in providing alternatives to some of the activities that were too strenuous for us to participate in. The best part was that it was "all-inclusive" which meant we didn't have to worry about optional tours, tipping to local guides or admission to any of the attractions.

While this is the only way to see the four places we visited - Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Brice and Zion - the tour would have benefited from extra guides, perhaps at some of the sites. It would have been a good idea to have a Native American historian on the bus as we drove through Navaho territory. Compared to the European tours, it is relatively inexpensive. So, perhaps that means it was good value. I'd rather pay a little more.

We had never been on a group tour before and had reservations about not having enough freedom and being stuck with people we might not enjoy. We experienced none of that. Tauck has its act together! We were able to avoid most of the lines to exhibits and museums, etc. and had special treatment in several of them. We were on a fast paced trip but felt like we saw the important sights in each city we visited. And we had plenty of free time to explore. A special highlight was a private tour of the Sistine Chapel. There were three other groups there at the same time but it was a far cry from the "sardine" experience the public has seeing it. And the local guides in each city were very knowledgeable and interesting. The hotels were top notch too. I would definitely recommend Tauck to friends and family.

Tauck came to us highly recommended and they did not disappoint. When our transfer from the Amsterdam airport to our hotel (arranged by Tauck) was in a Mercedes sedan, we knew this trip was going to be top notch. We can't say enough about the stateroom. As veterans of numberous ocean cruises, this stateroom was by far the best we've ever had. The itinerary was packed with great sightseeing options (almost too busy), and as non morning people, a few too many 8:30am departures for our taste. The tour directors were all excellent, the food awesome, and the all inclusive format was a pleasant change. They treated us like adults, meaning they gave us choices of exclusions, including ventureing out on our own. Just be back before the boat leaves. Parting notes: Loved the VOX system on tours that allowed me to hear the guide even 50 feet away.

When I ordered something that was not a featured item but available on the menu, it was served after the rest of the table had finished eating. On top of that, what is appealing about a piece of fish on a white plate with not even a parsley sprig? Rumor has it that Tauck is considering partnering with Seabourn.

tauck is expensive, but worth every penny. i'm not sure there's away to rate Gloria, she spoils us with her knowledge, she takes ownership of everyone on her tour, she doesn't miss a beat and her humor is wonderful. there's always a plan B. our driver pete was the safest most helpful person to be around. they made a good pair. not much can be said about the trip itself, it was more than expected....

My experience was fabulous. Tauck does an incredible job with customer service. There was always someone there to help you or answer questions, staff super! I loved always knowing my schedule and knowing what I would be doing the next day. Having schedule on my bed every night was great! Your every need was always met! Thank you for a wonderful trip!

My wife and I truly enjoyed the experience. The pre-tour information was very helpful in preparing for our trip. Everything was well organized with a variety of memorable activities. The accommodations were top notch. I would certainly recommend A Classic Safari to my friends.

Excellent. The organization was first rate, the pacing of the tour was just right. Every day there was a highlight or wow factor when you least expected it. The Tauck tour guide was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour, while all the local guides were well chosen, spoke well an clearly and were open to questions.

My sister and I have traveled with Tauck for many years. The tours are informative and very well planned. We stay in the best most interesting places, have the best food and most of all we meet the kind of people that make the trip even better. Our tour director this time was so much fun and so ideally suited to this part of the country. She added a lot with her fun personality.

Tauck has one of the best travel itineraries of any tour operator. Their tour directors take excellent care of the travelers. We want for nothing. We have done 4 tauck tours and will continue to do so.

Mixed Feelings on Trip with Tauck

By: David

Reviewed on: 20 Aug 2017

Great baggage handling, good food and locales on Pacific NW trip. I support their seat assignment rotation process on coach but it didn't work for us as closest to the front for good view for tours, etc. was 5th row. Hotel & Dining at Four Seasons was big disappointment (Vancouver) and should have been handled better by Tauck and hotel. Room not cleaned at 2:00 pm after return from morning tour and we were to leave at 4:30 for evening dining. We were seated in the "bar" for our fine dining experience. When one of our party asked for beef filet (not on the menu) he was told that due to other activities at the hotel they were real busy and could not handle his request. Also, server shared that due to activities at the hotel service may be slower than normal. Others on the tour were seated 1.5 hours after their reservation time in the bar at high table. Not what was expected of Four Seasons or Tauck.
