The Tauck New York City Event

Created by Tauck and filmmaker Ken Burns, Celebrating Tauck's 90th Anniversary

2015 Prices From $6,990 for 5 Days - Events

Ken Burns Event – New for 2015! Join us for this very special Ken Burns Event, October 1 – 5, in the city where it all started for filmmaker Ken Burns – and for Tauck, celebrating our 90th anniversary in 2015. Spend five days at a premier hotel in the heart of midtown Manhattan where you'll go behind the scenes of Ken’s films and explore what makes America’s premier city unique. Themed daily sightseeing tracks include New York’s First Families: The Gilded Age, where you’ll get an insider’s look at uptown New York City through the eyes of the city’s first families – the Fricks, Roosevelts, Astors, Carnegies, and more; Land of Opportunity – go "downtown," where you’ll explore compelling, centuries-old stories of the pursuit for new opportunities in America – stories that take you from immigration to urban legends defining Wall Street in the 20th century and today; and New York Innovation, focusing on midtown Manhattan and the dreams and aspirations of those who created the city, past and present, as well as those who influence it today. Private evenings and dinners include gala evenings at unique venues, with an opportunity to meet Ken Burns and talk with him about his "city." Our New York City Event will only happen once – and space is limited!
