If you’ve ever traveled with Tauck before, you know we love to wine and dine our guests. We believe it's one of the best ways to truly showcase an authentic taste (pardon the play on words here) of life in the places you explore with us.
On a Tauck River Cruise, we take our passion for culinary immersion a bit further. Onboard our riverboats, you’ll enjoy chef-prepared meals morning, noon and night, from full Western-style breakfasts to lighter Continental fare with a European twist in the morning – along with the requisite bagels, toast and jam. Sink your teeth into local pastries like French croissants or Viennese strüdel depending on where you are cruising and buffet lunches that entice with a parade of regional specialties and elegant dinner entrees that celebrate traditional fine dining reflective of the customs in the countries we are visiting.
Of course, wine is very much a part of European culture so we’ll treat you to locally produced vintages with every lunch and dinner onboard ship, along with opportunities to try Calvados, bier, pastis and other flavor favorites locally made.
Ashore, we’ve made friends with bakers, candy makers and vintners who invite us into their kitchens, shops and wineries to savor their time-honored recipes. You might be dining in a private palace in Vienna, having lunch with ranchers on their farm in la Camargue or sipping wines in a 900-year-old French manor house in Mercurey. Wherever we cruise, we’ll tempt you with an insider perspective on daily life.
If all this talk about food and wine is making you hunger for a closer look at an actual Tauck River Cruise cruise, feast your eyes on this video. We hope it whets your appetite for a Tauck river cruise in the near future!
