Preparing To Go

Can I be put in contact with past Tauck travelers to discuss their experience?

Past Tauck travelers are the most important voice we have when it comes to sharing the experience of a Tauck journey. We encourage you to visit the Tauck Travel Forums on our website where travelers ask questions, and share information, travel experiences, photos and more.


Is there suggested reading material appropriate to each of your destinations?

Tauck has partnered with Longitude, a travel book company, and prepared lists of recommended reading material appropriate to each of our journeys. To view or order these selections, go to each tour or cruise page and look for the "Suggested Reading" box featuring Longitude Books; click on the link at the bottom of the box. You will be taken to a listing of books, reference material, maps and guidebooks that will be interesting, informative and realative to your destination.


Should I bring identification with me?

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you. A valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. If you are a U.S. citizen traveling abroad then a valid passport will be required, and though not mandatory, we also recommend bringing some form of government issued photo ID such as a driver’s license. For U.S. citizens traveling within the United States, while passports are not required, proof of identification at airport check-in has become mandatory. A valid passport or a government issued photo ID is sufficient. Tauck recommends that non-U.S. citizens consult the embassies or consulates of the countries they will be visiting to determine identification and travel document requirements.


Will I be restricted in the amount of luggage I can bring?

Due to motor coach space limitations, most Tauck journeys only allow for one normal sized suitcase per individual. Remember, a wise traveler packs light! We also encourage just one carry-on bag per individual (for carrying items that might be needed during the day’s sightseeing excursions or camera/video equipment). Dimensions for carry-ons should not exceed 17” x 12” x 10”, allowing it to fit under the seat or in the overhead rack of most motor coaches.


Will I need to bring a passport?

When traveling to destinations outside of the country from which you are traveling from, or for which you are not a citizen of – you will be required to have a valid passport. Many countries require that your passport remain valid for at least 6 month beyond the completion date of your visit. With tighter security and immigration policies, even U.S. citizens traveling to Canada will very soon be required to have a valid passport to enter. Most Tauck cruise journeys require we receive and submit to the cruise line our guest’s passport information well in advance of the cruise departure date.
