About Tauck Tours?
Tauck is a family-owned and operated company with over 95+ years of experience was previously know as Tauck World Discovery. The story of how Tauck Tours was founded is very interesting. Arthur C. Tauck was a traveling salesman and decided to take six people along with him on his sales trip to the Northeast and Canada. Guests would travel in the morning and relax in the afternoon while Arthur Tauck made his sales calls. Word got out about this trip and soon people started asking about other destinations and an idea was born. In 1935 Tauck was the first tour operator to get a tour broker license in the United States. Then in 1958 Arthur Tauck Jr took over for his father and expended the company. Tauck is considered an innovator by combining motorcoach travel with air travel to destinations in the United States and Europe.
