Tauck
The Most Exclusive Experiences Ashore Europe’s Waterways Delivering truly inspirational travel experiences has defined Tauck for the past 90+ years, ever since Arthur Tauck Sr, took six guests on the first road trip to the places he really knew and loved in New England. He gave his guests an insider’s point of view - and Tauck are still doing that today, providing access to experiences you could never have on your own. Their European river cruise architects spend countless hours researching, crafting and curating Tauck Exclusives for every journey. In 2017 they will introduce their two newly re-designed riverboats sailing in France, ms Sapphire and ms Emerald, now reconfigured to carry a maximum of 98 guests - offering Tauck’s most intimate cruising experience. They have also increased the number of departures for their family river cruising with sailings on the Seine, Rhône, Rhine and Danube; a great way for families to bond over creative, active and cultural moments. Whether you’re exploring the Rhine or the Danube, the Rhône, Seine, Maas or Moselle; the magic of Tauck’s award-winning European river cruises lies in more than just the riverboat you’re aboard or the landmarks you’ll visit. It’s in the intimate atmosphere and personalised service you’ll enjoy aboard the custom-designed riverboats of Tauck’s Destination Fleet. The places you’ll discover off the beaten path, along with the must-see sights you just have to experience. The uncommon access to local culture and the exclusive destination experiences you just can’t get on your own. Tauck never settle for ordinary because you deserve much more from a river cruise.
Tauck Company History

In 1882, Herman Tauck arrived in New York City from Germany in search of the American dream. His determination and values were passed on to his son, Arthur Tauck, who would realize that dream. With ingenuity and an innovative spirit, Arthur started Tauck Motor Tours, a travel company that would give birth to a new industry. The first tour, through the back roads of New England, was created by this 27-year-old in 1925. It embodied the same successful formula used by Tauck today: Craft a life-enriching travel experience; provide it at a single all-inclusive price; ensure there is great value for money; and rely on recommendations of satisfied customers to build a following and grow the business.

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.

Throughout its history, the concept of “family” at Tauck has gone far beyond those sharing the surname to include hundreds of valued employees, and hundreds of thousands of loyal guests. The story of Tauck is the story of a unique American family company celebrating a passion for travel – a story that will continue to inspire generations to come.
