Two elements that did change over the next 85-plus years – and three generations of Taucks – were the scope of destinations served and the variety of modes of travel used. Today Tauck delivers life-enriching travel experiences to every corner of the globe, incorporating not only motor coaches, but also small cruise ships, elegant riverboats, trains, helicopters and more. What started as a New England motor coach tour company has truly evolved into an extraordinary global travel company. The fourth generation of Taucks is now involved in the company. While remarkable in any business, this seamless continuity across generations speaks to shared vision and values.
The difference in Tauck's small ship cruising lies in the choreography – the combination of personalized cruising with cultural land exploration. From the moment you step ashore, our 85+ years of expertise on land ensures that on every moment of your shore excursions (all included in the price) count! Small ship cruising means more personal attention from the captain and the crew – you'll find the on-board atmosphere to be both club-like and comfortable. The pace is more relaxed, the conversations are richer, and the day-to-day experiences are shared with like-minded travelers.
Cruise down Europe’s great rivers and waterways aboard our custom-designed premium riverboats. Truly inclusive, Tauck’s river cruises include all private shore excursions, wine with dinner aboard ship, meals at sea & ashore with an onboard choice of alternative bistro dining, services of a Tauck Cruise Director and one Tauck Director for every 40 guests, all gratuities, on-board experts and more.
