What travelers are saying

"Sad to see a once good tour company stumble and fall into mediocrity. That’s Tauck post-Covid. My May 2023 tour of Normandy, Brittany and the Loire Valley was done on the cheap by Tauck, yet cost me thousands of dollars extra as a solo traveler on a special small-group tour. 

5-star hotels switched to 3 and 4 (without any compensation or explanation)… many more meals “on your own”… lots of “self-guided” tours of museums and chateaux and castles we knew nothing about… airline quality “rubber chicken” dinners, not in hotel restaurants, but in sad and isolated business convention spaces… poorly-trained newer Tour Directors (like the one on this tour) with limited experience traveling outside her tiny Canadian village or dealing with people from diverse backgrounds. She even confessed that this was a second gig job that took her away from her own business back home! You get what Tauck pays for, but unfortunately, not what YOU pay for. 

Speaking to a “Guest Relations” agent was comically pointless. She tried to make everything my fault, which I now understand is par for the course with the “new” post-Covid Tauck. Please reconsider spending huge amounts of your hard-earned money on a tour company that has lost its way and no longer delivers."

Private Guided Tour Selection Trips

  • If you have strong preferences about where to go, what to see, and what to do on a trip, then a private guided tour may be right for you. 
  • High-end tour companies tend to specialize in private guided tours. So you may want to check out their offerings first. 
  • While you can generally expect to pay more for a private guided tour than a regular guided group tour, you can help establish the budget as well as the itinerary when you customize your own trip
  • If you feel you’re being overly pushed in a direction you don’t want to go – be it the destination, the types of activities, budget, or other considerations – you may want to shop around. 
  • A “private” guided tour doesn’t (necessarily) mean solo travel with a guide; many families and small groups of friends line up private tours so they can form their own group. 
  • Tour companies that arrange private guided tours often offer “sample” tours that you can use as models for inspiration – or, if that itinerary appeals to you, simply choose it.  
  • If you’re traveling to different countries or large regions within a country, you may be matched with more than one local guide, to take best advantage of their varied expertise.
