Meet Tauck Director Victor Cartin

A native of Costa Rica, Tauck Director Victor Cartin moved to Milan, Italy, when he was just 17 years old to get his feet wet in shoe design, before traveling to Paris to work in the hospitality industry. He received his undergraduate degree in international relations and sociology in London, and later earned his Master’s Degree in Sociology from Sussex University. Taking a break after college, he accepted an interim job as a tour director, a career move that has now lasted 30+ years and counting. Creatively inspired, in addition to his expertise in shoe design, he worked as a newspaper cartoonist, applying his visual talents to his new passion of creating videos of his travels with Tauck.

  1. Thank you Dustin! If you only had half the fun I had on that interview then you had a ball. I had a great time. Merci! Grazie! Victor

  2. I traveled with Tauck in 2019. A river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam, 14 days. It was wonderful, I travel solo, there was no single supplement for this trip. I can’t say enough about how absolutely magical my time was. The crew could not have been more wonderful. I’m hoping I will be able to travel with Tauck again.

  3. We loved our tour with Victor! We did the Northern Italy Bellissima in September of 2022. Can’t wait to see his others tour!
    Great memories!
