The Tauck Difference

The Art of Living could be restated as The Art of Wonderful Travel. From Barcelona to Paris our city hotel locations were excellent. Our Tauck Director was great throughout. The food was generally delicious and plentiful. The pacing was good. I was simply amazed when visiting the interior of Basilica Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, thanks to Tauck's very smart inclusion of the Basilica on our itinerary. And playing pelote in Basque country was a lot of fun too!
