Personalised Service

Tauck truly put their guests first, going way ‘above and beyond’ what’s required. They have the highest staff-to-guest ratio than any other operator on European rivers – Not only do they provide 1 director-level member of staff for every 33 guests on board, but for every 20-25 Tauck guests on a shore excursion there are also 3 Tauck directors PLUS one local guide.


All Inclusive

No hidden costs, one upfront price, everything is included!
All inclusive is often associated with more expensive – not in Tauck’s case – in fact, many of their cruises cost less than competitors, BUT include more!
With Tauck, you really do get what you pay for…and more; they pride themselves on high quality, providing real value for money.

Intimate, Spacious, Club-Like Atmosphere

Tauck describe their on board atmosphere as ‘Club-Like’ - there are no more than 118-120 guests on board, in fact they provide the most space per passenger compared with other operators on Europe’s rivers.
Not only are their ships more spacious, but they offer the most 300-sq ft suites than any other European river ship AND custom crafted; the extra space in the suite is dedicated to ‘actual living space’ rather than a larger balcony area.


‘Experience Europe like an Insider’

The shore excursions provided by Tauck are like no other – you will go ‘off the beaten path’ and discover experiences you cannot get on your own. Their ashore experiences are truly exclusive – guests are invited behind-the-scenes. Experiences include: private dinner at a Normandy Chateau, a private recital at the Bela Bartok House is Budapest, an exclusive visit to a private ranch with Provencal lunch and many many more!
