Ken Burns Events

Tauck EventsKen Burns Events are co-created by Tauck and filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan. Intricately crafted and well-choreographed, they are based in one destination and are theme-driven around the subjects of their films including The National Parks: America's Best Idea, Jazz, The Roosevelts, Brooklyn Bridge and others, featuring exclusive access and unique travel experiences. Ken Burns gives a special keynote presentation at each Event; the presentation is followed by an opportunity to meet him. Ken Burns Events have included The Tauck Civil War Event, The Tauck Jazz Event, The Tauck New York City Event, The Tauck Yosemite Event, The Tauck Baseball Event, The Yellowstone In Winter Event, and The Tauck Chicago Event.

Tauck Events

Ken Burns Events showcase what we do best – they are among the finest travel experiences Tauck offers. Finely crafted, well-choreographed and exclusively unique, they are based in one destination and are theme driven, built around one special theme or sporting event. They offer exclusive access to places and experiences you can’t get on your own. Behind-the-scenes insights are provided by noted speakers who give presentations in special venues, and in-depth visits to key sites are enriched by “insider” insights from experts on a vast array of subjects.

Concierge service enriches each Event from start to finish. Every detail is handled by our Tauck Event On-site Team, arrival to departure – from hotel check-in and checkout to coordinating sightseeing and gala events. Events are guided by our Tauck Directors, the best in the industry; they are warm, caring, attentive, and knowledgeable. All gratuities to Tauck Directors, local guides and drivers are included.

Ken Burns Events combine small group sightseeing tracks by day with exclusive private gala evening events held in premier venues – cocktail receptions, special dinners, and unique entertainment performances – along with multiple-night stays at premier accommodations in the best locations. Well choreographed, they feature:

  • Ken BurnsDaily themed sightseeing tracks that operate in intimate small groups of 30 to 35 guests, each accompanied by a Tauck Director and/or local guides.
  • Sightseeing that is identical for each small group, but occurs on different days for different groups; detailed day-by-day itinerary is provided with your documents.
  • A sample itinerary for each Event that follows one complete series of sightseeing tracks. All guests attend special lectures that may take place outside of the sightseeing tracks.
  • Exclusive gala evenings featuring special dinners, performances, and / or noted speakers in extraordinary venues, attended by all guests.

Every time we turned around, a Tauck Director was there to tend to our needs. I fully expected to find someone in my room at night to tuck me in and read me a story! Thanks for an extremely marvelous few days.”
