Welcome to Tauck Bridges Family Cruises
Whether you’re cruising the Rhine, Danube, Rhône or Seine, you can stretch everyone’s legs a bit with a leisurely family bicycle ride through the countryside on your Tauck family river cruise. It’s a perfect way to experience the centuries-old castles, lush vineyards and other unique landscapes along the river you’re cruising. Our river cruises offer numerous opportunities for cycling along Europe’s rivers; every Tauck riverboats has bicycles aboard for use by guests ashore.
In Paris, Tauck Bridges families explore, learn and have fun during an art-filled scavenger hunt in Musée du Louvre. See Mona Lisa smile, fall in love with Venus de Milo, meet Bernini’s sleeping beauty, mingle with Monets, Michelangelos, Rembrandts and Renoirs...
There’s always something fun for kids of all ages to do onboard a Tauck riverboat, and it’s the best place to socialize! Meet local dancers, musicians, and artists who come aboard to demonstrate their talents. Make local treats with chefs and savor tastings, from crêpes in France to pastries in Austria. Enjoy the putting green, hot tub or plunge pool on the Sun Deck, or the fitness center. Language lessons, song and dance fests, and group games fill your evenings with family fun and new friendships.
Marzipan is a sweet candy confection – traditionally made from sugar or honey and ground almonds, and often formed into pastries or shapes – that can be found around the world. Asia, the Americas, the Middle East and most regions of Europe all have marzipan-making traditions. And you'll discover Germany's love affair with this sweet concoction with a demonstration in Passau that lets you try your hand at making your own tasty tidbit in the shape of a face... very popular in this "city of three rivers."

For 90+ years, the Tauck family has had a passion for sailing — aboard small ships and yachts at sea, riverboats along great inland waterways, and at home on the rivers and lakes of Connecticut and New York. When we began blending our land experience with our strong passion for cruising in our first European river cruise back in 1992, we knew that no "ordinary" river cruise experience would do for our guests. We wanted them to travel Europe's rivers in the same beyond-the-ordinary Tauck style they experienced on our land trips. With that in mind, we searched to find a company to partner with that would share our values and our commitment to "do the right thing" by our guests... and found it in another family-owned company, Scylla. Together, we crafted a river cruise experience that was ahead of its time and inspired by the destinations we explore.View Our Entire Fleet
Smaller ships mean bigger experiences. Our small ships are big on individualized service, special touches and comfort, making you feel like a welcomed guest the moment you come aboard. Intimate spaces invite conversation or quiet contemplation as you like. Whether you're inside your cabin or out on your deck, ocean views beckon with adventures yet to come.
Because of the size of our ships, we're not restricted to commercial routes or large ports. We're free to follow the fish, not the fleets. We dock in places where you can get lost in the moment and not in a crowd. We delight in sharing spontaneous moments, up-close discoveries, personal connections and unforgettable treasures, making each moment memorable and uniquely yours. At Tauck, small is big... and the best way to make your cruise so much more than you ever expected.View Our Entire Fleet
