Tauck River Cruises’ motto is “how you see the world matters”. And they follow through on this statement by paying attention to even the smallest details and staff who go above and beyond what is required to make sure their guests receive the highest standards in comfort and quality.
Tauck is known for giving their guests exclusive access to behind-the-scenes cultural experiences and private dining experiences in historic venues that go far beyond the ordinary. They have the highest tour director to guest ration in the river cruise industry.
Cruising with Tauck is the most all-inclusive experience of any river cruise company. Your up-front cost includes everything including all shore excursions and unlimited complimentary beverages onboard. There are no little extras to pay for, no hidden expenses, no options sold. You get what you pay for… and then some.
Their custom-designed ships are spacious and offer an intimate, club-like atmosphere. They have luxurious cabins and suites with service rivaling that of a premium hotel. They have a choice of dining venues and serve fine European-style shipboard dining.
