ABOUT TAUCK: Tauck is the only company to have been named Travel + Leisure magazine’s “World’s Best Tour Operator & Safari Outfitter,” “World’s Best River Cruise Line,” and “World’s Best River Cruise Line for Families.” Tauck offers over 100 inspiring land journeys and small ship cruise itineraries in 70+ countries. Each reveals the rich, engaging, cultural “story” of the featured destination, showcasing its must-see attractions while providing insider access to authentic, off-the-beaten-path experiences that are either unavailable or unknown to most travelers. The company also delivers tremendous value. An independent traveler duplicating a Tauck itinerary would spend up to 40% more than they would by traveling with Tauck. At Tauck, “How you see the world matters."
Among the enhancements for 2016 is a special winter holiday departure of Tauck’s popular “Alpine Adventure” exploration of Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Also in Europe, Tauck has added new small group departures to two eight-day Bridges itineraries, “Italia Bella: Rome to Venice” and “Castles & Kings: London to Paris.” In Latin America, a popular Tauck Bridges small ship ocean cruise, “Galpagos: Wildlife Wonderland,” is being enhanced for 2016 with a new vessel, the 90-passenger expedition ship Santa Cruz II. Also in Latin America, Tauck’s “Costa Rica: Jungles & Rainforests” family itinerary has been enhanced through Tauck’s partnership with the nature documentary filmmakers at BBC Earth.
Launched in 2003, Tauck Bridges journeys are designed specifically for families traveling with children ages 8 - 18. Each Tauck Bridges trip reflects Tauck's philosophy of "shared enrichment," which allows family members of different generations to experience the joy and wonder of travel together, and build enduring bonds (or "bridges") in the process. Each all-inclusive, fully-escorted Tauck Bridges itinerary is also backed by Tauck's legendary service, freeing parents (or grandparents) from the mundane chores of travel and leaving them free to fully enjoy their time with family.
