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.

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.

Although we were disappointed in the overall tour, the director was excellent and made the most of what we could get out of the trip. We felt like there just isn't enough substance the the Maratimes trip to justify all of the bussing that is required. The facilities and ameneties were excellent but too much bus without much to see and do, in our opinion.

Tauck delivers first class service & special surprises on each trip - Sistine Chapel at night with only our group, a story teller on the Zambezi River who told the story of Stanley & Livingston as if he had been present at their meeting. When you add in all the tickets you don't have to pay for and the tips you don't have to hand out at every turn, Tauck is a bargain.

Outstanding river cruise with minor disappointments

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.

LOTS of information about airport transfers and Tauck hotel pickup, but none for us. We only were able to get our departure pier information from our hotel concierge.

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.

Reviewed on: 11 Aug 2014

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.

My only complaint, which is not Tauck's fault is that we had to fly 19 hours to get to South Africa!!

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

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.

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" .

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.

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.

Tauck - A perfect ten. Ponant - A disappointing 3

By: Pat


Reviewed on: 01 Aug 2017

As usual, Tauck tour personnel were great. The Iceland itinerary was fascinating and well planned. The onboard lectures were wonderful. The partnership they have with the cruise line, Ponant needs to be rethought. While the cabins were clean and well appointed with friendly and hard working stewards, the dining room was a huge disappointment. The food was uninspired and the service not up to Tauck standards. 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. That would be a genius move, I hope it's true.

I have used Tauck for my travel for about 6 years. Prior to that time, I traveled with my wife who arranged all the details. I now travel as a single. This means that I have a special need for a congenial sharing travel group. This trip like all the others was well organized and my traveling companions were the best group I have experienced. This was an especially active trip and we had some cases of altitude sickness and, although I was not affected, the all the problems were handled well, with discretion and effectively. It is likely that I will book more travel with Tauck.

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.

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 .

Tauck is an excellent company. I was on a European river cruise with the company.

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!!

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.

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.

Tauck River Cruise Budapest to Amsterdam

By: Merlyn & Valli Brunken


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!

Our Spotlight on New Zealand trip with Tauck was our first international or guided tour.

This tour was well organized and we had a superb guide/director who kept us on schedule with our itinerary which included a few appreciated blocks of free time to do our own thing. The local tour vendors chosen by Tauck are top notch and this includes coach drivers as well as the crew of our chartered flights. Things we would change if we could: On days with special lunches, dinners of that evening could be much lighter; there was just too much to eat in one day. One of our hotels, nice as it was as a whole, had window curtains in our room that were in need of updating and furniture that had a few threadbare corners. We would have preferred a smaller group of fellow travelers.

Tauck takes the work out of travelling and takes care of everything - transfers, luggage, tips, special events like our private viewing of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, and everything in between including most of our food. The Classic Italy trip showed us the opulence and crowded highlights of Italy. Scandinavia showed us the austerity, practicality and spaciousness of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. We went from sumptuous delicious meals in Italy to plain, straightforward food in Norway, from walking five to seven miles a day to three to five miles a day, and busses and boats to busses, boats, trains, and planes, all with plenty of stops to see everything along the way. My biggest juxtaposition of opposites was seeing the gilded churches in Rome, Florence. and Venice and then going to a 1000-year-old stave church in Norway.

I highly recommend Tauck to anyone who wants a stress free adventure as each trip is an "adventure" not just a trip.

Tauck is a wonderful company and we have traveled with them 10+ times and have 3 more trips scheduled this year. However, our weather was terrible. Cool and rainy in Wyoming. Venues were not enjoyed at their best. However, besides the weather, Tauck will get a letter from us about particular stops, hotels and restaurants. It really was unlike Tauck and they need to make several changes to keep up with their five star service and experience. We put this behind us, and look forward to taking a "Bridges" Tour mid July, Med in September, and a group of 16 of my BFF's to the Winter Markets in Dec.

Tauck is a premier tour company and takes this title VERY seriously. Although there tours seem to be more expensive than other tour operators, when you factor in the ALL inclusive nature of their tours along with the premium food, drink and accommodations, it all is fairly the same. Their attention to detail is superb and they packed this tour with many fun things to do and se. Since this was a "family" tour catering to parents/grandparents and their kids, Tauck made sure to include activities the kids would enjoy, such as white water rafting, glacier walking and hike into the canyons. Tauck is very accommodative and no request seems to cause them problems. For this tour, our Director, Melisa Colabella, was incredible making the tour even more special.

We really enjoyed the Best of Ireland, but there was an issue throughout. We would not want to be directed by this trips Director again. Although she was under some emotional distress – broken up with her boyfriend – we believe, for the most part, she behaves the same way always. That is, she was snippy and overly concerned about being on time even to the point of telling our group that she was not going to baby sit us. We felt she was much more concerned about her time than ours. She was knowledgeable about Ireland, supplied us with a lot of very good information about Ireland and its rich history, still we felt that she basically did the minimum required of a Director. Frankly, we had too much free time. Would liked to have seen more sites like the Blarney Stone. Our Director last year in France (Jacqueline Bucchi) was an "A+" Director. This years Director (Gail Hazen), I am sorry to say, was a "C-". We are still very much looking forward to our next Tauck trip next year.

Their choice of hotel provided rude and inefficient service. Will not use this tour company again. Too many other options to feel my complaint did not warrant better resolution.

This particular Tauck trip depended on the Tour Director and Bus Driver as to whether it would be a success. Our particular one had outstanding individuals in both cases. If the tour director had not been as knowledgeable, the trip might not have been a thumbs up. That being said, we were traveling with friends ( and consistently added the single person to our table so she would have companions), which made the trip again a positive. Was it the best trip we have ever taken...perhaps not so much as we have been fortunate to be widely traveled. The highlights were the Director, Bus driver who deserves kudos, as well as the local presentations at the various locations. The negatives might be the long bus rides without internet. Although the scenery was lovely, how many trees and small towns can be seen without losing interest? Having been forewarned about the quality of the hotels, we didn't expect the Ritz...but neither do you expect 'not pristine'. Glad we did it but not again.

Local guides were knowledgeable and all spoke understandable English. The bus drivers were excellent. The food onboard was very good. Two meals off the ship were spectacular. We met about half the people on the tour. We enjoyed being with them. The last two nights were in Monaco at the Fairmont. It’s not an attractive hotel, but the service was good. Heavy construction is being done nearby. That’s what you see as you look seaward. Of course that is temporary. We asked the Tauck people why we didn’t wind up the tour in Nice.

Our tour director was excellent. She kept us on schedule and adapted so well to anything that arose. She was knowledgeable, friendly and accessible. She knew when to be present and when to let us have our space to explore. There was something for everyone on the tour which helped to keep us engaged. The driver did a superb job in navigating the coach in tight areas and accommodating all our luggage. Tauck did disclose that the coach had limited overhead storage area, which was totally understandable. You want as much window viewing area as possible. The leg space on the coach, however, was very tight for my 6'5' husband. While it didn't matter for shorter jaunts, longer times on the coach were uncomfortable for him as his knees were shoved into the seat in front of him which caused him to also take-up more of my seat beside him. I hate to see motor coaches go the same way as the airlines. We did upgrade our airline seats before we left to avoid this situation.

I cannot review the Tauck Blue Danube Cruise, since the cruise was canceled due to the low level of water in the river. However, I can say that they handled the cancellation of the trip in a very professional manner. We were given options when the trip was canceled, including a complete refund of your total payment for the trip. We decided take the refund, and tour the cities via land. During our trip, we met many people that were still staying on their river boats, because their cruise line refused to cancel the trip. They were very disappointed in their trip and the cruise line that just refused to cancel the trip. I would definitely book a trip with Tauck again, given their level of customer service.

Reviewed on: 22 Sep 2018

Our Tauck Tour Operator was good, not excellent. He did not offer too much in the way of extra sites we could visit while staying for a while at each location. One very annoying thing that occurred was when we were at our last destination at the end of our tour, our carry on luggage was accidentally left behind in the bus's baggage compartment. After much searching they found that this carry on was never removed from the baggage compartment and that the driver was half way to Phoenix and therefore we would not be able to have our luggage that night. Our tour director promised that the luggage would be overnighted to our home the next day. We never received the luggage until 4 days later without even an apology for the long wait. We had to keep in contact with our travel agent to see if the luggage was ever going to be shipped. It seemed like hit-and-miss if the carry on would every be shipped. This was very poor customer service indeed and it put a damper on a great vacation.

This was my second Tauck trip. As in my first experience our accommodations were top notch and I really appreciate that all tipping for basic services were included in the cost of the trip. I think Tauck does an excellent job of selecting a variety of activities and I especially enjoyed the sheepdog demonstration on my most recent trip. If I had any negative comments from my most recent experience it would be in the quality of our trip director. I felt that she was consistently excessively loud and rather annoying in the way that she talked to us much like a group of schoolchildren going on a field trip each day. However she has been employed by Tauck for decades so apparently this type of behavior is rewarded. The director for my first Tauck experience was wonderful in every way and she enhanced our daily experiences.

Also the handicap rooms were never as nice as the regular rooms especially the Marriott “basement room” This is not the fault of Tauck, but they should inform the hotels they use to do better with those rooms, as many of the Tauck travelers are “Seniors” & require the safety features.

My experience with Tauck was a bit different this time around. I’m used to river boat cruises where there is a cruise director on board, along with two fabulous tour guides. This time we had two Tauck guides on Le Ponant with no Tauck cruise director. This created a different dynamic. Our guides are very accustomed to the Le Ponant boat. Most of the travelers were not. The boat’s accommodations are uncomfortably tiny. The ship itself is old and much in need of remodeling. While I look forward to future river cruises with Tauck, I wouldn’t sail on Le Ponant again. As usual, Tauck had lots of interesting daily excursions planned. Keeping us busy was the rule of the day. Unfortunately, at the end of the trip, we encountered a hurricane that prevented our tour of Malta. Tauck made every effort to get us from Siracusa to Malta. That was an extremely long day, but we missed touring the beautiful and fascinating cities of Valletta and Medina.

We have traveled many different ways - independent travel completely on our own, in small groups, with a number of tour companies, and by land, sea and air. In my opinion, Tauck is absolutely the best company to travel with in any form. Every aspect of your trip is taken care of, and they don't even allow a problem to occur. Example - when we arrived in Calgary, the limo driver did not have us on his list. He took us to the hotel anyway, and along the way gave me his phone to call Tauck. Even though it was Saturday, the Tauck rep looked up the info, made the change, and told the driver that it was all taken care of. One phone call and the issue was completely resolved. On the trip itself, we stayed in the best rooms (always the ones with the killer views), ate the best food, and had the best guides and experiences. Dining was usually not in a group, but we were able to select items off the menu just like any other patron. I highly recommend Tauck.

Tauck is a pro. Each tour manager is unique and has his/her own style. All are well trained and experienced. Andrea was friendly, humorous, and offered opinions and recommendations upon request. He tries to respond to the "mood" of each group, and focus on what seems to be demands; this means that the squeaky wheel sometimes gets most of the oil. His stories are charming. To get the information that is uniquely yours, you must at times be vocal and upfront. Tauck's travel insurance coverage is a good value; their responsiveness to claims is in our experience, very slow.

We have no experience with the other lines but most of the passengers with whom we interacted echo that sentiment. The number of multiple repeat Tauckers was jaw dropping.

Tauck is an exceptional company in that it anticipates all concerns and addresses the issues early on. Organization and execution are impeccable. The guidses and tour director were fantastic - some guides better than others, however. Not all guides were equally wonderful but none was sub par. My choice is not to travel with 35+ people in a bus, so these kinds of Tauck trips are not for me. I would not go on another Tauck trip unless it was a small group and was less than 20 people. I heard that some of their small group trips are not terribly large. But I can say with certainty that I will not do a Tauck trip again without that guarantee. I did not feel like we got to see very much of many of the places we visited. Too much time spent in lengthy (too lengthy to my taste) meals and in shepherding people onto the buses. Just not my cup of tea. I would recommend Tauck with reservations.

Our ship was old and poorly designed. Our room was not at all premium. It was a cramped horrible space. The lounge areas were uncomfortable. Tauck Staff was not immediately there to address problems on the ship. There was a sense of disorganization throughout the trip.

Tauck Tours came to us highly recommended and did not disappoint. It is hard to know where to start with the kudos; 1) the food was delicious, plentiful, and scrumptious. 2) the ship was immaculate, and the cabin stewards did everything they could to make the cabin a home away from home. 3) the other travelers on the ship were interesting and fun to meet and engage. 4) the maitre d' was sensitive to my dietary restrictions and walked me through the menu at every meal. He also made a special effort to find gluten free bread and beer to make my meals enjoyable. 5) the trips/tours were lead by engaging guides who really knew their stuff and were eager to share enthusiasm about the city or site we were visiting. 6) the tours were also small-ish, so it did not feel like a cattle call as we walked through cathedrals, castles and other sites. 7) Tauck has a tradition (who knew?) of surprises for guests. We received cable car rides, chocolate, and couple of other gifts. Great trip!!

The staff made every effort to accommodate us and by the end of the trip they were almost family.

Of 3 Tauck Trips this was the most disappointing. The Tauck Tour Director was not very good and talked constantly while we were on the group bus, even though about half of what she was saying was of marginal value. She seemed on the lazy side and could be a little snippy. For example, while touring through many many olive groves I asked the purpose of the solar panels in the middle of the groves. She replied " I TOLD YOU ABOUT SOLAR ENERY TWO DAYS AGO".About an hour later she said "Oh, I'm sorry but the answer to your question is that it powers the olive grove irrigation system. We had a few days when we arrived very late (and exausted) at our hotels.

This was our twelfth tour with Tauck and they never fail to please! This trip was outstanding and the sites are spectacular. Thankfully, Tauck makes it very easy to travel because they pay attention to all of the details.

We all had a fabulous time. Many of our group have not seen mountains. Denali was awesome. The glaciers and the flight was spectacular. The calving if the glaciers in Whittier was amazing. The dogs and the things they go through to prepare for the race was so interesting. And the puppies were adorable. The raft trip was fun and the kayaking was great. Spectacular vacation.

A loyal Tauck traveler

This is my third Tauck trip and I have 3 more planned during the next 12 months, that should tell you what I think of Tauck. They have taken such good care of me while I have been with them. Their destinations are varied, running the gamut of staying in the US or joining them on an exotic trip. They have trips suitable for singles, couples and families. Their tour directors are top notch, they're knowledgeable about the locations you're traveling to, organized so the trip runs very smoothly and really enjoy their jobs, a winning combination in my book. Judi Glass my travel advisor takes care of everything pre-trip and Tauck does the same during the trip, thank you to both of them!

Tauck was very good. This was our 15 th trip and we were very pleased with the trip. Only issu was food not being particularly good on the ship. Very surprising giving their billing as haute cuisine. Not even close! Iceland is beautiful and travel by ship delightful, don’t stay at the Hilton in Reyjavek!

Ronny was why Tauck trips have so many return travelers. He was professional, warm, knowledgeable and so kind. My grandson and I had a wonderful experience, he did not want to go home. I have taken many Tauck trips, this my first Bridges trip, couldn't be more perfect! Jan Conn

Savoring France

Always a relief to see that Tauck sign at the airport exit, waiting to shepherd us safely to our hotel and on to our journey. Savoring France was a terrific trip, though I gained 10 pounds. It definitely lived up to its theme! Dinner in Uzes was terrific.

This, our third experience with Tauck/Scalla, was just as enjoyable as the first two. The accommodations, the knowledgeable and entertaining guides, the organization, the choice tours, and the Tauck and Scalla staff were just as professional and extraordinary as experienced before. We have already talked other customers into choosing Tauck in the future and we will be making arrangements with them in the future, as well. Don't plan to lose weight; the food is entirely too good. I don't care how disciplined you might be, the wine and food presentations each evening will make you weep.

Tauck’s tour of Zambia, Botswana and South Africa was life changing. We experienced the land, the animals, and the people through every type of excursion, transportation and lodging. From a cot in the Kalahari to 5-star resorts, from dinner in a private Cape Town home to a walk through the desert with the San people, everything was a memorable adventure. Well done!!
