One Family. One Company. One Passion.

Roots are important – they connect the past with the present and provide a strong foundation for future endeavours built on a legacy of integrity and trust. Our success over the past 98 years is a direct result of our commitment to "do the right thing," which began with our founder Arthur Tauck, Sr. in 1925.

We believe that when you travel with us, it should be effortless. It should transform, re-energise and be beyond the ordinary. And above all else, it should be fun. We are still singularly focused on the satisfaction of our guests. We never rest on our laurels and continue to innovate and enhance our journeys every year based on guest feedback. Our deep, longstanding relationships with our travel partners bring guests incomparable travel experiences around the world, on all seven continents.

Meet the Tauck Family

Three generations of Taucks have been pioneers in escorted travel since our first tour through New England in 1925. Today, 98 years later, Tauck family members continue to guide our company and oversee 140+ unique Tauck travel experiences.

Unique, Exclusive Access

Unique and exclusive access create a journey unlike any other. It's not just about the places you visit – it's how you experience them. With Tauck you'll see the world differently thanks to our exclusive access in destinations the world over. Authentic experiences that provide special access to hidden gems and must-see sights – at times of day when the crowds have gone. That go behind the scenes to take you into places not accessible to the public. That show you the world differently than you could see it on your own and astonish you along the way.

Closer Connections

The best travels bring the right kind of connections, with locals who share their daily lives along with cultural insights, secrets of nature, stories of the past that define the present, and special skills – and a journey becomes both enriching and everlasting. The most memorable trips aren't just about the grand sights you see. They're also about the little experiences you have along the way, those personal encounters and unexpected moments that make your visits – and your memories – extraordinary.
