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.

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.

Cherry Blossoms Everywhere

By: Saguaro City


Reviewed on: 30 Apr 2017

This has been our tenth tour with Tauck. Our experience has always been outstanding and this trip was no exception. Our tour leader Elise seamlessly got us to locations and on to the next without missing a beat. Japan was at its best for us - everywhere we went were the famous cherry blossoms. 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.

We recently traveled with Tauck on a wonderful cultural tour of Sicily. It was our first experience with this tour operator and we were very favorable impressed. We have traveled with a number of other tour providers before but the quality of the hotels, local guides, and food offered by Tauck exceeded anything we had experienced. 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. Wine was included with most meals and the food choices were varied. We will definitely consider traveling with Tauck in the future.

This was our second Tauck tour. The first, from Prague to Budapest, was absolutely fabulous. This trip involved long bus rides and we had only one tour director for 40 people. 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.

Tauck is a premium (luxury) travel company. In our latest group of 19 couples , only 3 had never travelled with Tauck before. All the others, ourselves included, were repeat customers. That says a lot for the quality of the company. Tauck guests stay at the best hotels, eat at the best restaurants and never have to worry about added expenses, everything is included. The Tauck director is always knowledgeable and available. The local experts brought in provide detailed information about the area's history, and local culture. Their prices seem expensive at first glance, but if you research all the included extras and compare hotels , included meals and liquor , then you'll discover they provide excellent value for the money over mid-range companies.

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.

For the cost of this trip, I expected a unique, one-of-kind Hawaiian experience. Instead, we stayed in four incredibly expensive hotels that were destination locations. We didn't really want a ritzy hotel experience, wanted to experience Hawai'i. There were so many missed opportunities to learn about island history, music, art and culture. Tour director was too "hands off". During the tour, we had three "free days" without much guidance. Had to use hotel concierge services frequently to learn of local events. Pace of tour was too slow and disconnected.

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. Special kudos to tour director Michael (he was extra attentive and helpful), Stephan (great entertainer). Would we recommend? Yes, yes, yes

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.

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.

There was an inconvenience about having to pay a 70 euro tax at the hotel at the beginning of the tour, that I assumed would have been paid by Tauck, but that is the only concern I had on the whole trip.

The tour director sets the tone…

By: Pamela


Reviewed on: 15 May 2022

I have been fortunate to have had two extraordinary Tour Directors in my 9 Tauck trips. The remaining ones get the job done and are mostly okay, but don’t go out of their way to make the trip special. As a solo traveller you pay 150% and oftentimes get the worst rooms. I had to request another room in one hotel, as it didn’t even look clean. Tauck is good about making this happen. This particular hotel was in need of a refresh. I have concluded that I am too independent and don’t like being herded around and forced to do activities I am not interested in. One day, a 12+ hour day, visited two hill towns with an hour “kill time” in Chinatown-like tourist shops (Otranto) until it was time to go out into the country for a folk dance performance and dinner. My time is precious, I did not want to do this, expressed that and was brushed off saying “oh, you will enjoy it.”. So I was stuck. I like to wander, experience a town, sit in a cafe and watch people.

From the time we arrived in Venice until we got back to the airport, they took great care of us, with one exception. Venice airport is challenging and our Tauck rep disappeared once we got to the check in desk. Also, we made it to our gate only a short time prior to boarding.

Expensive Tour Led My Immature Host

As an educated traveler with considerable knowledge of ancient and contemporary history, I was thrilled to learn that my family secretly put together this Tauck tour of Italy. I was told that the guide would be highly knowledgeable of the subject matter and the places we were scheduled to visit. Although nice and very friendly, he wound up farming all of tours out to local guides. He was barely visible except during the parts of the tour that required our transportation to the various cities. His compassion felt "canned" in regard to my mother's handicap, which limited her mobility. We were told that she could not visit the Colleseum in Rome but soon found out that this was not the case; the historic site is fully handicap accessible. We scheduled a seperate tour on our free time to ensure she was able to enjoy it. Our family was segregated from the larger group in other instances. We obviously stressed our host and will ensure that we will not make the same mistake again.

This was my first experience with Tauck, and it Could not have been better. The Bridges trip to Alaska was a 40th birthday present to my son & family. We went with high hopes & were not disappointed . The hotels were great & the guide(Matt) & driver(Liz) were warm ,knowledgeable & always willing to go above & beyond. Our fellow travelers were open & all seemed to add to the fun. The activities were well suited to our family & even though we had the youngest traveler (5 year old) and a 10 year old ,everyone was kept busy & happy. The best review was from my son & daughter in law-it exceeded all expectations ! My granddaughters said it was the best trip ever & I agree

The initial pickup at the airport was minimal at best. The hotel rooms were outstanding. The meal sign up was very frustrating-too difficult to sign up with others . The meal scheduling at Jasper (and other venues) reflects a disregard for the day's activities and the unfortunate waits for clean rooms and luggage. A scheduled lecture did not occur due to poor manners of the chosen expert. We needed more information about the evening on the train. Suggest in future consider Rockie Mountaineer.

Not Like Previous Tauck Tours

By: Phyzzle


Reviewed on: 06 Aug 2022

We have traveled with Tauck many times before and have expected only the best. We realize Covid has done a number on hotels and restaurants, so were not expecting the same level of excellence as before. Although the tour director was great and the tour itself very good, the accommodations and esp the resort restaurants were a disappointment. Our recommendations are to wait to take another Tauck tour until things settle down or Tauck should decrease their costs. Just because a place has always been wonderful that Tauck has used, they should reevaluate them to see if they still measure up to Tauck’s standards.

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.

I love traveling with Tauck....this is probably my 10th trip with them, and I’m doing their Portrait of India tour in 2019. All of their employees have been outstanding. My choice not to do another river cruise is because of the hefty single supplement fees. I don’t want to stay in the bowels of the boat to get a SS discount.

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.

It's hard for my husband and I to imagine traveling with anyone else after experiencing the outstanding service that Tauck provides. The tour director was amazing handling every detail smoothly and efficiently (and mostly behind the scenes so there were never any worries for us). Our local guides provided insight and education in every location. And we love the all-inclusiveness of the pricing; there are no hidden expenses. The fact that many of our fellow travelers were on their 10th or even 15th Tauck trip is a testament to the high standards this company offers around the world.

A very good trip

By: Suzy


Reviewed on: 22 Apr 2019

With the exception of the hotel in Amsterdam, we really enjoyed our Tauck trip. The daily itinerary was interesting, well planned, and some very nice extras were added when passengers suggested interest. For example, a trip to the flower auction at Royal Holland. The Amsterdam hotel, W, was way too "hip"' for us and genuinely uncomfortable. The over 50 set is not likely to enjoy a stay there. I would recommend that Tauck accommodate their travelers in a hotel that is more like the Amigo in Brussels.

Exceptional in every way. From the moment we arrived at the destination city Tauck took over and everything is included in the price. It is well known that Tauck is more expensive than many of the river cruise lines reportedly because it is worth it. 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. The ship was awesome, the excursions creative and informative, the tour directors knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and fun. It will be hard for us to experiment with other companies in the future.

Good Trip with Tauck to Japan

Reviewed on: 19 May 2019

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.

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.

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.

A Little Different Tauck Trip

By: RCT1751


Reviewed on: 23 Dec 2019

This was my seventh trip overseas with Tauck. My wife and I usually opt for the small group trips, so sailing on a ship with 200+ fellow travelers was a new experience. The boats are operated by a different company, so it's sometimes a little difficult to be certain where Tauck ends and the ship operator begins. The entire trip was well managed including the part aboard ship. It's what we have come to expect from Tauck. That said, I'm afraid we didn't enjoy this one as much as others we have done in the past. The Dalmatian Coast is no longer an "undiscovered" destination, especially since "Game of Thrones". These port towns are interesting but small with limited resources. Usually there are only one or two things of interest to travelers at each stop. If you are accustomed to France or even Italy, get ready to down shift.

If I hadn't had the most perfect trip my first time using Tauck for the Classic Italy tour, I might have rated this experience five stars. We went to France for this trip. The tour guide was fabulous, and we loved our trip. But the experience was not quite as special this time. The bus didn't show up to pick up the whole group from the high speed train to France. A couple of tour guides didn't show up for some of the "in town" experiences. Our trip to Monte Carlo, where we were told we could visit the famous casino, occurred when the casino was closed, and we barely had enough time to even walk in the lobby before we had to race back to the bus. The visit to the Louvre was another moment where a guide didn't show up, so the whole group was trying to stay together in enormous crowds. Unsuccessfully. When we went to Rome, we had a private evening tour of the vatican, and I may have been naive in expecting something as special for this. Hope the kinks are gone next time

We chose Tauck because several people we know speak very highly of the quality of their tours as did our Travel Advisor. The Classic Italy trip is worth every penny for the private tours of the Vatican Museum & Sistine Chapel and the Uffizi Gallery, the excellent local guides, some amazing hotels, and managing the logistics (including our luggage) around the various modes of transportation. Compared to a couple of less well-known and not as expensive tour companies we've traveled with, some of the logistics and communications could be improved. Specifically, managing individual dietary restrictions before the wait staff delivers a dish a traveler can't eat, managing hotel rooms for folks with physical issues, and providing electronic evaluation forms (not a paper form on our last day). Our tour director did a great job, but she took a lot of heat for some things that should have been handled better by admin staff elsewhere.

I do not believe we could have had a better tour guide and representative of the spirit of Tauck than our Yellow Roads of Spain tour guide Alicia.

She could tell you cultural tidbits like what it's like to take your driving test in Spain, or give practical advice for what tourists should do to be safe, or explain how olives are harvested from the trees we pass on the roadside all with the skill of a storyteller and local expert. I learned so much from her about the life, culture and language in Spain. Alicia kept us organized, but we also had fun with her. Our destinations were well-chosen, our accomodations and modes of transportation were comfortable, and our activities in the cities were selected to optimize our short time in the places we visited.

Tauck provided a Bus to take us to the Danube to begin our cruise. The first impression of the MS Savor was WOW. The marble floors and ambiance was magnificent. The Staff could not do enough for each of the passengers. We had fine a dining room and also a Bistro for our delicious meals. Our 3 Tour Directors, Razvan, Vlad & Miles were very knowledgeable of the area and most helpful! I highly recommend Tauck

My experience with Tauck was delightful. Our tour director, Michael Moore, was extremely knowledgeable and personable. His knowledge of history and his presentations made the journey most enjoyable! Tauck always provides first class accommodations and restaurants. I prefer old world charm to contemporary settings, so the Fitzwilliam Hotel did not meet my expectations. I am sure it was chosen for its location, which was central to many sites. The staff was very pleasant. The uncomfortable heat in the breakfast area put a severe damper on our stay there.

From the minute you check bags at the airport until you are comfortably tucked into seats on you return flight home Tauck professionals handle all the details making sure you have a fantastic travel experience. The Trip Director on our recent Classic Italy trip, Nicole Ross, was always friendly, &helpful with suggestions for using the scheduled free time. Good restaurants, sights to see and how to get there were easy with her help. We had a couple of schedule changes due to unforeseen circumstances and Nicole had made all the rearrangement of the schedule, buses and tour guides were waiting. Every local tour guide must have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the site we were seeing. The most memorable were the private, after hours showing of art museums and the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. We had plenty of time to savor the beauty of these highlights. Tauck costs a little more but I feel that what you gain in the experience is well worth the difference.

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.

We stayed at wonderful properties and had amazing meals, as one would expect on a Tauck trip. Each day offered very special experiences, and our small group of 23 was so compatible we enjoyed every moment with them. But what really made the trip special was our host, Anna. She is totally awesome. She was warm, knowledgeable, and anticipated our every need. Her ability to adjust to any situation is remarkable. Tauck should be very proud to have her on their team. Thanks, Anna, for a fabulous trip!!!

I was disappointed as I pointed out on my comment sheet at the end of the Belle Epoch tour that we had not been with the same poeple from London through to Monte Carlo. Having 2 different river cruises with 2 different groups did not lend well to what Tauck strives for with a family atmosphere with people making life long friends as is tauted. Those of us who were doing the whole cruise did not get to bond with the second half of the trip. I would have liked more choices in Paris and London for the sightseeing. The crews were very different as well as is to be expected but that also helped to make the trip feel disjointed.

The last trip of the season, (before the Christmas Tours) was perfect. From the first day to the last, weather held with very little problems with rain. It was not a full ship so the normal great service was even more personable. 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.

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.

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 itinerary Tauck created was outstanding. In addition, the Tour Directors went out of their way to make the trip enjoyable and educational. They took care of their passengers as if they were family members. Even though the river cruise was cut short due to damage with a lock, Tauck was able to piece together a last minute alternative that still allowed for the scheduled excursions. Some of the excursions were unique and could not have been accessed if traveling alone. These were the best--especially the tour of the BMW factory.

Of 3 Tauck Trips this was the most disappointing

By: Bob Cook


Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2019

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. Part it was because the local tours took 90-120 minutes when we could have effectively cover the local tour in 1/2 the time without excessive details.

The Best of Hawaii

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2021

Any comments must be considered in light of the difficulty of travel anywhere during the time of COVID. Half of our group had canceled because the Governor of Hawaii asked travelers not to come because of the increase in COVID cases in the state. The resulting smaller group made movement throughout the tour easier. Tauck had managed through their policies to create a “bubble” so that travelers felt safe throughout the tour when with the group. (All had to be vaccinated and comply with Hawaii’s Health Safety protocols.) Unfortunately because of COVID, some parts of the itinerary had to be changed, and some of those parts were activities which drew me to the tour in the first place. However, it was clear that safety was paramount and that was the best route for a professional organization like Tauck. The tour director was outstanding, and he provided guidance as it was needed. I was terribly disappointed with the closing luau, as it was cut back to the point of not resembling a luau.

I saw how hard she was working behind the scenes every minute, but the experience for our group was seamless and easy. • One of the best features of traveling with Tauck is everyone seems to acknowledge that you're with a first-rate group.

We were lucky to have a great band of traveling companions from all over the country that were all good people. No jerks on tour! The food was overall good but I think they provide too much quantity and not enough quality. The exception was the Rocky Mountaineer train itself where the food and service quality were excellent. Sometimes lunch is right on top of breakfast so more spacing is required. The tour director was quite knowledgeable about the area and was full of great information. When traveling through the countryside it would be good to take a break from the constant commentary and let silence play a role as we enjoy the natural beauty in peace.

This is tough time to travel, especially to the ends of the earth. As usual, Tauck did a great job. I've come to expect professional Tauck tour directors, but the team outdid themselves in reacting to problems along the way. They couldn't do anything about the weather in the Drake Passage but were largely responsible for a wonderful travel experience, with thrilling excursions and interesting presentations. Thanks to Rob, Melisa, Oscar, and Axelle.

Tauck operator tour review

Reviewed on: 27 Feb 2022

We have been on 2 Tauck tours. First one was to National Parks. We could have done this tour on our own however the hotels we stayed at were exceptional. Our second tour was to Machu Pichu and the Galapagos. This was exceptional and Tauck handled it all including 6 flights, numerous exceptional hotels, fantastic tour guides, wonderful naturalists. And our fellow tourists were great as well. I highly recommend Tauck

The tour was my first trip with Tauck. It was a well managed trip from the time I arrived at the airport in Tel Aviv until I returned to Amman for my trip home. My fellow travelers and I enjoyed great guides in every location along with top accommodations and venues. Free time slots in each city allowed each of us to enjoy personal pursuits as well as up the activity scale in places like Petra based on our interests. Covid protocols did not slow us down. The only real challenge was the ever changing weather, but then who can control that?

Tauck runs an amazing operation. They meet you, Guide you through customs, and get you on the van that takes you to the hotel in Giza. Our tour guide was an experienced and seasoned pro. Our two Egyptologists were engaging and informative. The whole trip was organized to minimize “dead” time and allow leisure time. We waited several years to take this trip and I am so glad that we got to go and enjoy it.

One of Tauck’s first river cruises since being docked for 2 years from Covid. Wonderful friendly staff and lovely suite level accommodations. Some services absent suspect due to newly sailing again and staffing challenges. Excellent local guides, very good food. Really enjoyed ourselves and would do another!

Can’t thank Tauck enough for all the wonderful experiences planned for a one week cruise. Among the highlights were a wonderful trip to the Delft Factory including making our own tile and high tea. Seeing the Friesland horses and having lunch in a lovely village in a converted church and a tour of the town. A delightful special dinner at the Hague and a tour of the museum. A tour of the Reichs museum with a wonderful lunch afterwards at their Michelin Star Restaurant. Tea, our tour director, was professional, helpful, fun, enthusiastic and kept everything running smoothly. Our tour guides were amazing and very knowledgeable. The river boat was very clean and comfortable. The staff went above and beyond to make sure all of our expectations were met. We were amazed the the variety and quality of the food which was very good. We also were very appreciative that the excursions and our alcohol beverages were included in the price of the trip.

For the most part, tour was organized with interesting experiences at the cities we visited. Displeasure with the choice of hotels, seemed universal among the other guests. We did understand, however, that the pandemic has had lingering effects on staffing. Hotels were in good locations, but each had guest issues - barking dogs at the Omni Hilton Head; security lapses at Perry Lane; requests seemed to fall on deaf ears at the Mills House. Our bus driver gets 5 stars. Great driver, personable and helpful to all. Tour director was adequate and thoughtful.

Our experiences with Tauck's river cruises, small ship cruises and land journeys have always brought us back for more. We have traveled with a number of tour operators that might be considered by others to be comparable to Tauck, and while some provide satisfactory traveling experiences, we regard Tauck as a step above the rest in providing access to local famillies, private tours of otherwise crowded attractions and inclusion of off-the-beaten-path venues that we would not have been aware of but for Tauck, all of which we have enjoyed immensely. For us, the hotels and meals that Tauck arranges set the standard for our travels. A Tauck Douro River
