RESERVE EARLY – The Rose Bowl Game® marks its 100th anniversary in 2014 – and Tauck's Celebration of Roses typically sells out quickly! Our “Celebration of Roses” over New Year’s Eve in California was, according to the letters we received from our fellow revelers, a “10” in every way. Now, we invite you to a very special star-studded “Celebration of Roses” Event from December 29, 2013 through January 2, 2014 that's limited to just over 200 guests. We're rolling out the red carpet for you from the moment you arrive in Los Angeles for a four-night stay at The Beverly Hilton – the “premier” Hollywood address for movie stars and celebrity spotting – and debuting a colorful parade of headlining entertainment and head-turning experiences during this exclusive 5-day event, the ultimate Rose Bowl tour.
On themed sightseeing tracks focusing on Hollywood glamour and art and design – featuring small groups averaging 35 Tauck guests, accompanied by a Tauck Director – we’ll reveal set secrets at Warner Bros. Studios and show you what goes into those beautiful Rose Parade® floats on a behind-the-scenes visit to the float barns... the perfect in-the-know preview for your Grandstand seating at the Parade on New Year’s Day! We’ll take you inside the J. Paul Getty Center or his gorgeous Roman-inspired villa, and chauffeur you past movie stars’ homes in Beverly Hills. And at night, when the stars come out, we’ll wine and dine you with Gala Evenings in The Beverly Hilton – treating you to a Comedy Show at our Welcome Dinner... our private Gala New Year’s Eve Party with dinner, dancing and the unforgettable Rik Howard Band, taking place in the same venue where the prestigious Oscar Nominee Luncheon and the Golden Globe Awards® are held.... and a Farewell Reception and Dinner with a Magic Show... plus a mystery dine-around at Los Angeles hot spots! Our Tauck Event is marked by a special event – you'll have the option to see the historic 100th Rose Bowl Game in person, in reserved seats strategically located at the corner end zone. Ask for details at booking! Note: Small groups will experience sightseeing tracks on different days, then rejoin the other groups for each evening’s gala events; the day-by-day itinerary presented here represents a sample.
