TAUCK AWARDED - 'World's Best River Cruise'

Tauck voted # 1 as "World's Best River Cruise" 2011.

16th Annual Travel + Leisure "World's Best Awards"

Tauck which operates four custom built riverboats throughout Europe has been awarded as the "World's Best River Cruise" for 2011 by Travel + Leisure Magazine. So much effort has gone into maintaining Tauck's premium standard, and with over 85 years in the business Tauck's relationships with their worldwide partners ensures that their travellers get the best value for their travel dollar. Tauck's first river cruise was in 1992, almost ten years before riverboats became one of the 'hottest' ways to travel.

Life on board Tauck's riverboats are often referred to as a 'private-club'. It's comfortable, relaxed, warm and inviting. Tauck's intimate, yet spacious design holds no more that 118 guests while other boats hold 160. That means more room for you. In addition there are 14 suites (300 sq.ft) and 7 junior suites on every ship – four times more than most other European riverboats and 85% of cabins have floor-to ceiling windows with French balconies.

Imagine paying for a river cruise and having nothing else to pay for. No additional costs to Tour Directors while onboard, no options are sold to you, no sales pitches are made while you're enjoying your cruise and no fuels surcharges come onto your final bill. Refreshing? This is all part of the 'Tauck Difference' compared to other river cruise specialists. And this is why Tauck guests keep coming back time and time again. Their testimonials say it all.

It's the quality of what's included that defines the word "value". Have a look at what is included in the price of your river cruise:
