    • The world's first national park inspires awe any time of the year
    • as Yellowstone winter tours would attest. But as you'll discover visiting the national park during the winter – when bison
    • elk
    • wolves and bighorn sheep wander across snow-covered valleys
    • and Yellowstone's amazing geologic features are even more spectacular in the frigid air – is a whole other... and perhaps other-worldly... experience.Exploring by snowcoach
    • you'll see gurgling mud pots and steaming hot springs surrounded by frozen landscapes... waterfalls whose cataracts partially freeze into ice bridges... and geysers
    • like iconic Old Faithful
    • erupting dramatically into the cold winter air. You'll ride a horse-drawn sleigh through the National Elk Refuge. And you'll meet a noted naturalist and wildlife photographer who offers insights into the lives of Yellowstone National Park's iconic species. When filmmaker Ken Burns and colleague Dayton Duncan started thinking of new trips on which to share their unique stories and experiences
    • a wintertime Yellowstone tour was a natural choice. In Dayton's words: 'You've never really seen Yellowstone until you've been there in winter. Once a snowcoach takes you into the interior (the roads are snow-covered)
    • you have this incredible place pretty much to yourself.' Small groups

It's easy to see the world's sights. To stand in long lines, push through the crowds, and generally have the same standard-issue vacation as everyone else. But that's not good enough for us, and it's not good enough for you. We believe that travel should be easy. It should be fun. It should be worth your time and the price you paid. It should re-energize and transform. And above all else, it should be beyond the ordinary. Because how you see the world matters.

In 1882, Herman Tauck arrived in New York City from Germany in search of the American dream. His determination and values were passed on to his son, Arthur Tauck, who would realize that dream. With ingenuity and an innovative spirit, Arthur started Tauck Motor Tours, a travel company that would give birth to a new industry. The first tour, through the back roads of New England, was created by this 27-year-old in 1925. It embodied the same successful formula used by Tauck today: do the right thing. Craft a life-enriching travel experience; provide it at a single all-inclusive price; ensure there is great value for money; and rely on recommendations of satisfied customers to build a following and grow the business.

Two elements that did change over the next 90+ years – and three generations of Taucks – were the scope of destinations served and the variety of modes of travel used. Today Tauck delivers life-enriching travel experiences to every corner of the globe, incorporating small cruise ships, premium riverboats, trains, helicopters and more. What started as a New England motor coach tour company has truly evolved into an extraordinary global travel company. The fourth generation of Taucks is now involved in the company. While remarkable in any business, this seamless continuity across generations speaks to shared vision and values.

Throughout its history, the concept of “family” at Tauck has gone far beyond those sharing the surname to include hundreds of valued employees, and hundreds of thousands of loyal guests. The story of Tauck is the story of a unique American family company celebrating a passion for travel – a story that will continue to inspire generations to come.
