The Tauck Style
The included sightseeing ashore provides you a window to cultural treasures and insider's secrets; and unique to Tauck, events crafted exclusively for Tauck guests, like a private gala Imperial Evening in a palace in Vienna, a home-hosted lunch in Bulgaria, a private dinner at the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest, wine tasting at a German vineyard, or lunch with local entertainment overlooking Pont du Gard. Our clients appreciate that on a Tauck river cruise, there are no hidden extras and no additional options, and more included opportunities to experience local cuisine and dine ashore.
More personalized
Your Tauck river cruise will include three Tour Directors plus a Cruise Director, more than on any other river cruise line, ensuring a higher level of service and care onboard and ashore. Plus, there's a smaller complement of guests on a Tauck cruise than on many other river cruise ships. Tauck also provides for solo travelers to some degree, with no single supplement charged in category 1 staterooms. More family options and occasional theme cruises for foodies and music lovers are also offered.
Shoreside enrichment
Perhaps you’ll choose a trip on the Rhine and Saône rivers in France, of 10- and 14-days. Along the way you'll meet winemakers, chefs and culinary artisans, while you taste the riches of the regions. Or maybe you’d prefer to savor an 8- to 15-day Tauck European river cruise on either the romantic Rhine River, the musical Danube River and the Moselle River that winds through Switzerland and the Black Forest. Several mountain bikes are available on board should you care to pedal while ashore.
Our recommendation
A group tour with Tauck, whether on land or on water, is always top notch. Tauck is ideal for those seeking enrichment from their travels, not just a fun time, and who appreciate the added pampering and guidance additional professional tour guides provide.
