Tauck River Cruising – Europe

There are two aspects to consider when choosing your cruise. The first, of course, is the parade of destinations your ship will visit. The second is life aboard. Tauck River Cruising means fascinating ports-of-call, and a club atmosphere on board.

Sometimes small really is beautiful. Take a Tauck River Cruise and you will be ensconced in an exclusive-yet-friendly, club type atmosphere. Life on board is very relaxed, with a focus on personalising your experience so you make the most of your cruise. It’s an attitude that stretches beyond the ship’s rail too. Tauck uses 90 years of experience to make sure that you’re able to immerse yourself in the history and culture of the places you visit, as well as seeing the sights.

Your excursions are led by local guides and Tauck Directors, so you experience your destinations from a local perspective – it’s like having a friend in each port to show you around. You even eat in the best restaurants serving regional specialities – all inclusive - as well as discovering places that ordinary tourists seldom reach.
