Meet The Filmmakers Our Partnership

"You add up the elements, the good food, the good lodging, the intelligent design, the extras – all equal something good. but we want that experience to be just a little bit more. And maybe that 'more' is life-changing and life-transforming."

– Filmmaker Ken Burns

Ken Burns American Journeys –
Exclusive Guided Trips

Ken Burns American JourneysIn 2010, we approached award-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan about joining together to develop special travel experiences around the themes of their documentary films. Together, five years later, we’ve enhanced 13 journeys and created over 100 original film vignettes ("Stories by Ken Burns"), created six tours ("Crafted by Tauck and Ken Burns") and developed special events ("Ken Burns Events") with Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan; they connect guests with destinations in deep and lasting ways. In 2016, our partnership continues to flourish.

Their acclaimed film The National Parks: America’s Best Idea took them over 10 years to create. Tapping into this, with Ken Burns American Journeys they share their unique perspectives, behind-the-scenes insights and their extensive network of local experts to maximize your travel experience in the National Parks in ways that add layers of meaning and appreciation. The resulting experiences can change the way you view the world – and maybe even yourself.

Ken Burns American Journeys include both national park travel experiences and visits to National Park Service sites throughout the US such as national monuments, national memorials, national military parks and battlefield sites, national seashores, national scenic trails and more.
