The Tauck Difference

This trip was amazing. To think of the history in a place like this and how the sights have survived. From the minute we got there until the final dinner it was non-stop. The extras that Tauck gave us were the best and I feel honored to have been able to participate. The most memorable moment was being able to sit and pet the pandas!
