Due to the sheer amount of different cruise companies and tour operators that are around these days it can be difficult to choose one. Indeed, it can be difficult to find one that has the history and the expertise to deliver a first class cruise holiday.
However, with Tauck River Cruises you are getting a track record that goes back decades to the 1920’s as well as a family based company that prides itself on providing and intimate and personalized service.
While the company may not offer anything remarkably ground breaking when it comes to their cruise options it is often the way in which they go about these cruises rather than the destinations they travel to which wins them the hearts and minds of many holiday cruise goers.
Most of the cruises focus on Europe with the Dutch waterways and the Danube providing the two most popular cruising routes.
Tauck offer Cruises on the Nile and South East Asia
That being said, they also go further afield from Europe and they provide cruises to both The Nile as well as the exotic region of South-East Asia.
One particularly interesting aspect of the cruises that are provided in Europe is that they can often be themed. For instance you can go on a music based tour on the Danube that follows in the footsteps of famous musicians and composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt and Bartók or you can undertake a food and wine based ‘Taste of France’ cruise that introduces you to French cuisine in Paris and Lyon. Christmas market tours are also available and are very popular as a Christmas period getaway.
The company has only recently launched its own fleet of riverboats to be used solely on Tauck cruises and this now numbers four with ms Treasures being the most recent addition.
The liners can hold around 118 passengers which means that they are quite intimate in design, size and in terms of how many people are onboard. The cruises themselves are designed to target the more mature traveller by aiming their holidays at the over 55 market. That being said, they have some cruises which are very child friendly and are designed with families in mind.
One of the things that attract many cruise holidaymakers to Tauck is the fact that their ships have on board experts. These experts provide lectures and more, intricate information on the locations and sights that the cruise ship is visiting.
This can give a much more detailed and well-rounded experience for anyone who wants to truly get involved with the history and culture of a particular region.
Tauck River Cruises have been providing cruise and other holidays for well over 80 years now and the fact that they are still immensely popular shows just how well they have been doing it.
While most of their cruises focus on Europe, they take in almost every aspect of culture and history that the regions they sail to have to offer; whether this is relaxing down the waterways in The Netherlands, tasting local cuisine along the Rhone river or sailing off the Far East or Egypt.
