Memorable connections and like-minded companions

While all of Tauck’s journeys are designed to make an impact, travellers often say it’s the people they meet that makes their trip so extraordinary. Yes, it’s the friendships they forge with like-minded fellow travellers. It’s also the on-board staff and local guides they get to know on the way that leaves a lasting impression.

From Winston Churchill’s granddaughter to legendary American filmmaker Ken Burns, guest speakers and guides bring destinations to life with stories of their lives and travels. A Tauck tour director accompanies guests on each of the excursions led by local guides to deepen the experience still further.

Although Tauck’s guests hail from 40 different countries, most are from the US, Australia, Canada and the UK. The demographic is broadening as younger travellers fall in love with cruising. But most who travel with Tauck are energetic, curious, sophisticated travel lovers aged over 60.

Age aside, what Tauck customers also have in common is a desire to learn deeply about a destination, its customs and its people – rather than just a superficial whistle-stop tour.

“It becomes clear very quickly when you sit around the bar at the end of the day on a river cruise, and you have these amazing conversations with people about their lives and where they’ve been and places you want to go, that you’re travelling with interesting, well-educated people who have a real passion for travel – people like you,” Clark says.

What guests don’t experience as they mingle with their fellow travellers at the end of another exhilarating day is that sinking feeling you get when you find out a guest paid a lot less for their trip than you did. Tauck has a policy of not offering discounts and not increasing the price – just to make things fair.
