Tauck started over 90 years ago when Arthur Tauck Sr. took six guests on a road trip to the places he knew best in New England. Now, they offer expert insider cruises and land journeys taking travellers to some of the best places, events and highlights of Europe.
Since launching their river cruises in 1992, their fleet of nine custom-designed river ships sail Europe's waterways in comfort and style with two of these to set sail newly refurbished in France, the MS Sapphire and MS Emerald. Tauck's intimate ships carry no more than 130 guests and as little as 98 guests on their new French river ships.
As part of their initmate and immersive experience, Tauck offers specially-crafted 'Tauck Exclusives' cultural excursions such as private evenings at castles and chateaux. Their programme also offer family cruises, including the Tauck Bridges family cruise on the Seine and enhanced family cruise on the Rhone.
