Guest Reviews

Tauck’s River Cruises are unlike any others along Europe’s rivers, and regularly receive kudos from our guests around the world. From solo travelers to couples celebrating a special anniversary to families traveling together on our Tauck Bridges cruises, every river cruise guest’s travel experience is important to us – and many routinely tell us that it’s often “the little things” onboard and ashore that make their Tauck river cruise experience second to none. Read some of their rave reviews below:

River Cruising Testimonials

“What an incredible journey. Absolutely the best tours, food, and staff. Our third Tauck tour and we wouldn’t consider any other company. We loved every minute of our Grand European Cruise!”
– Dean & Jackie Heimbach, Texas

“Tauck goes beyond what it has promised. You offer a great product with a great staff to ensure the delivery of services promised. The staff could not have been any more courteous… it got to the point where the waiter knew what coffee we preferred, the bartender knew our favorite drink, and the piano player knew what music we liked and when to play it!”
– Robert and Deborah Zaragoza, New York

“I want to share with you the wonderful experience I had… Because there were only 118 guests aboard the riverboat, it was easy to get to know people… they were very friendly. On the first night of the cruise, our Tauck Cruise Director gathered we single or independent travelers together, so that we would get to know each other and have company at meals. It was a very nice touch, and helped make the delicious meals that much more enjoyable!”
– A. E. Elbrecht, California

River Cruising Testimonials“Our French Waterways cruise was certainly one of the best 8 or 9 Tauck trips we have enjoyed, although all were special in their own way. The ship was comfortable, the food was delicious, the tours along the Rhone River were outstanding and the captain and crew were personable and added another plus to a great journey.”
– Aurele and Henre Timken, North Carolina

“Our entire Budapest to the Black Sea cruise was seamless and problem-free… we wanted to express our sincerest appreciation for the hard work and dedication that the Tauck team put into making our tour one of the most exciting and memorable adventures that we’ve had – and a honeymoon trip we will definitely never forget.”
– Joshua & Audrey Wilson, California

“It certainly pays to research, seeing what options are available and then factoring in everything to see what will give you the greatest overall service, itinerary, accommodations, dining and touring experiences, for your travel budget. I have found that Tauck comes out the clear winner every time. On the surface, costs may look higher than the competitors, but comparing has proven to me time and time again that Tauck isn’t all that outrageously expensive. Tauck scrimps on nothing. A good, reputable and knowledgeable travel agent will steer one in the right direction.”
– Denise Federoff, Tauck Travel Forum

River Cruising Testimonials“My partner and I just returned home from my first Tauck trip on ms Swiss Jewel. I found ‘jewels’ inside and outside of this exceptional vessel. The captain was a star, the special touches – dinners, wine tastings, surprises – were wonderful, and the hotels were top notch. The best memories will be the people we met and how interesting they were.”
– Trevor H. Reisz, Illinois

“Tauck never has disappointed in any of the tours we have taken over the past years. The Tauck Bridges family Danube River cruise exceeded our expectations and we can highly recommend it for anyone; the staff managed professionally and compassionately throughout the trip. I have to say that all of the Tauck Directors on that cruise were the 'best.'”
– Jean W. Reiter, Virginia

“We have just arrived home from our first Tauck River Cruise trip on the ms Swiss Jewel from Prague to Budapest. Some very close friends who have traveled with you several times insisted that we would not be disappointed traveling with your organization, so we did. Your group on that trip did an incredible job insuring that we enjoyed every aspect of our trip. We have been on many trips before, and over time have established what we consider to be some pretty high expectations for any trip to really be an enjoyable experience. Let us tell you that Tauck far exceeded our expectations. The complete trip was just phenomenal.”
– Tom & Mona Sprott, California

“We would like to thank Tauck, our guides, and all the folks behind for a wonderful experience on our Rhone River cruise in celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. Once we arrived, every bit of the time in France was a delight, from the folks we met, the experiences we had, the riverboat crew… everything was in the Tauck tradition – top notch. We loved every minute of this trip and our guides couldn’t have been nicer, more knowledgeable, or more helpful. We are definitely recommending this trip to friends and I can hardly wait to put my scrapbook together.”
– John & Ann Schnaedter, Virginia
