Tauck World Discovery

Refinement On The River


Highly regarded for its 80 years of experience leading upscale land tours, Tauck has seamlessly extended its expertise to river cruising. The company offers seven river itineraries in Europe, from a 10-day “Holland & Belgium In Spring” cruise to an extended “Grand European Cruise” traversing the entire continent over 24 incredible days.

Tauck’s ships are arguably the most elegant afloat. The company’s brand new MS Swiss Sapphire and MS Swiss Emerald (launched in 2006) alternate duty on many of Tauck’s itineraries. Each accommodates just 118 guests, compared to 140 or more on other similarly sized ships. Besides leaving more room for spacious public areas (including hot tubs, bar, lounge, restaurant and wellness center), the lower capacity ensures a more relaxed, less-crowded ambiance.

The only thing surpassing Tauck’s onboard experience is what guests discover ashore. Besides visiting must-see sites, Tauck’s shore excursions deliver authentic, engaging “insider” experiences that bring each destination to life... An exclusive Mozart performance in a historic Viennese palace. A behind-the-scenes visit with a Belgian chocolatier. A private dinner in a Prague castle, hosted by a member of the former Czech nobility.

Just as clients are assured of a wonderful cruise with Tauck, travel agents are also assured of an enriching experience. Agents earn commission on virtually everything with a Tauck river cruise, because virtually everything is included in the price from pre- and post-cruise stays in luxury hotels to shore excursions, meals, gratuities, taxes and more.
