All-Inclusive Luxury on the Rhone River

I have been forever spoiled. If I ever go back to France to explore Provence, it will have to be this way. It's all Tauck's "fault": The travel company ferried me along the Rhone River for my first experience (starting in Paris) in this French region, giving me such a unique taste of luxury, fun and adventure that I cannot imagine a better way.

"Memories of Mount Rushmore"
by Tauck Director Elizabeth Goetsch

When I was 10 years old, my Girl Scout troop went to Mount Rushmore. I said “went” but the trip involved so much more. We had to plan the trip (each step of planning fueled my anticipation!). We had to read and research about where we were going (at a library, as nobody in my troop had heard of the internet then). We had to raise money ...

"My Most Memorable Family Travel Moment” by Tauck Director
Elizabeth Goetsch

As a Tauck Director, I am incredibly familiar with the itineraries I run. I am often asked if I get bored running the same tour over and over. I don't get bored, as each week feels different than the week before. With all the familiarity of the tour I sometimes forget that I, too, can be moved by the same experiences as my guests.

Making Sense of Online Trip Reviews

The Internet has revolutionized the way we plan vacations, and nowhere is that impact more apparent than in the profusion of online, first-person traveler reviews of hotels, restaurants, guided tours, cruises and attractions. Consider this: One leading travel review website hosts 260 million unique monthly visitors and more than 100 million reviews...

Meeting Celia Sandys, Winston Churchill's Granddaughter

It hasn’t really soaked in yet, and perhaps never will. I can hardly believe that I actually sat in a room and had a conversation with Winston Churchill’s granddaughter. It’s as close as I could get to meeting Churchill himself, and something akin to having a conversation with Abraham Lincoln or Mark Twain.

River cruising in France - with the kids!

I’m a kid at heart so I was excited as I headed to the lounge of the InterContinental Paris Le Grand to meet my fellow travelers on June 19th for Bon Voyage! France Family River Cruise. This was going to be my first Tauck Bridges family river cruise vacation filled with families of various ages and sizes, and we were going to spend ...

Family Adventure in Spain:
Brave Bull Wins Against All Odds

Imagine for a moment you are going back in time. You are in the Spanish town of Seville and the date is October 12, 1965. You find yourself surrounded by hundreds of locals present to watch the evening’s entertainment of bullfighting as you had many nights before. In the bullring all eyes are fixed on the young lad decked out in his Spanish a...

Outtakes – Filmmaker Ken Burns and Hidden Gems of New England

One of the things we like best about our partnership with filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan is crafting new tours. Hidden Gems of New England, debuting this month, is one of our newest – and we have to admit, one of our favorites. Travelers on this trip visit so many of the places intertwined with their films – Mark Twain, The Nati...

What to do with free time in Florence... Springtime Spirit in Piazzale Michelangelo

As the days grow longer and warmer, the city of Florence comes together in a united sense of spirit. The beginning of primavera has brought an entirely new camaraderie to Florence, one I hadn’t previously seen in my three months studying here so far. During the first week of spring, everybody was enjoying the sunshine. Italians, often known f...

Hitting The Perfect High Note With Tauck

When CherylAnne Williams learned that Tauck had partnered with the filmmaker Ken Burns to produce travel experiences exploring the themes of his films, she was immediately intrigued. “I knew if you combined Tauck and Ken Burns you’d get something pretty cool,” she reasoned.

Single-Parents & Their Teens Connect on Guided Vacations

As a family travel writer, I’ve traveled far and wide with my children as tots, grade school children and present-day tweens/teens. While we’ve never met a trip we didn’t like – now as a single parent – my desires for a family vacation differ greatly from when I was married. Plus now that I have a tween and teen, their...

Winter in Yellowstone is Hot!!!

Last week we mused about the fun you can have outdoors when the temperatures drop and landscapes don their winter-white wear, when, much to our delight, we heard from Tauck guests Keith Harding and his wife who were writing to us from their first night on Wonderland: Yellowstone in Winter. We are happy to pass along their posts and photo tags&...

The Gift of Giving Back

I have always gotten great pleasure out of helping and doing for others.  It’s just who I am.   When I was growing up, my friends knew they could count on me.  When I was in college, it went beyond my friends to the community - I volunteered on a crisis hotline.  In graduate school and through the early part of my professi...

A Tauck Tour Director’s Favorite Things to Do in Paris

I love Paris. Who doesn't? And I love to share the places I find myself going back to again and again. Not surprisingly, all involve fabulous food! Join Parisians and tourists alike, any day but Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, for a stroll in the Marais. This lively, hip area is also a historic Jewish neighborhood. I like to shop at the small bo...

Stories from the Road – Researching and Developing Tauck Itineraries

While doing our research for hotels for Tauck’s Switzerland tour, late one afternoon I found myself sitting on a bar stool, enjoying a draft beer in a perfectly frosted stein, in the very same bar in the Schweizerhof Hotel Lucerne that hosted not only Mark Twain and Leo Tolstoy, but other notable travelers such as Roger Moore, Richard Wa...

Fall Foliage and its Mythical "Peak"

As a product manager charged with choreographing our New England itineraries, I can tell you with some authority that fall foliage is in Tauck’s blood.  Our founder, Arthur Tauck, Sr., was inspired to offer his very first tour (limited to six guests!) while enjoying views of fall foliage in 1924 along the Mohawk Trail in western Massachuset...
