Old World Europe – Rhine River cruises

Tauck Exclusive – Evening at Schloss Ehreshoven

Enjoy an elegant dinner and tour at Schloss Ehreshoven

Built in the 14th century and later expanded in the grand style of a Baroque manor house, Schloss Ehreshoven is surrounded by gracious 18th-century French gardens and a castle park. For nearly a century the castle has been the heart of a charitable foundation whose main mission includes providing a home for unmarried aristocratic ladies without means in their golden years. Frequently used as a location for movies and TV shows, the Schloss provides an elegant setting for Tauck's exclusive cocktail reception and dinner, hosted by a member of the family.

Bellevue Palace Bern

More than a century of history in the shadow of the Alps

The only grand hotel in the heart of Switzerland's capital, Bellevue Palace Bern a national institution – the official guest house of the Swiss government for over 150 years, in fact. Whether you arrive for a romantic weekend, an eventful holiday or an official visit, the hotel's stylish and discreetly luxurious rooms and suites leave nothing to be desired. All offer classically elegant furnishings combined with modern-day comforts, harmonious colors and stunning views. Thanks to our hospitality, you are sure to feel at home.

The officers and crew were totally outstanding professionals. We were treated like royalty. The Tour Directors were exceptionally knowledgeable, personable and great!

Everything was first class and very enjoyable.

Most Memorable Moment:

The Top of Europe seeing all the snow and glaciers, and going to a dairy farm to see how cheese was made.


The trip was fantastic!! Only criticism was at the windmills...We were so rushed...only had 10 minutes for 60 people to go inside the windmill...Seeing the windmills was #1 for me in Amsterdam..After the windmills we went to cheese farm and had lots of time there.
