The Tauck Difference

This was a wonderful trip. We thoroughly enjoyed every day. The cities and sights were beautiful. The rides through the mountains were just breathtaking. The hotels and meals were unbeatable. I can't say enough about our Tauck Director; she was amazing and is a large part of the reason we had such a great time.
