Discover Tauck River Cruises

For a family holiday with a difference, specialist Tauck itineraries are a wonderful way to travel with three (or even four!) generations of your family, with facilities on board and excursions on land to suit all. The scavenger hunt at the Louvre is a favourite activity with younger guests!

Why choose Tauck River Cruises?

The unique quality of a Tauck River Cruise comes from its ability to ensure guests truly get behind the scenes and into the heart of a destination, with experienced local guides who are experts in a destination and allow “uncommon access” to insightful, exclusive places. Take, for example, Tauck’s private dinner at Napoleon’s descendants’ home, or stroll Monet’s garden before the crowds in a private viewing. It’s these meticulously planned shore excursions which see so many guests return year after year to the rivers of Europe with Tauck.

The Tauck River Cruise Experience

Within the Tauck River Cruise fleet are nine vessels which are split into two designs - four ‘long’ ships and five ‘short’ ships. Cruising Portugal’s Douro River through one of the world’s oldest winemaking regions, Tauck’s new 80-metre riverboat, MS Andorinha, sports a spacious design accommodating no more than 84 guests – custom-built to glide past the Douro’s picturesque riverscapes dotted with historic quintas and centuries-old villages.


Sailing solely on Europe’s finest waterways, Tauck has itineraries along the Douro, Rhine, Danube, Main, Rhône, Seine and Saône Rivers. To experience the heart of the continent its Grand European Cruise from the North Sea to the Black Sea is exceptional, stopping off for Tauck’s private, inclusive shore excursions, many of which are at UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
