The Tauck Difference

The guides were excellent, especially in Turkey, and they were also excellent in Athens; our Tauck Director worked beautifully with them and the drivers, who were terrific. I can’t say enough good things about our Tauck Director, who was caring, efficient, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.
