Question for those who have taken lots of Tauck tours



  • Options

    mil Glad you're enjoying your trip. Looking forward to experiencing the journey through your postings.

    I just returned from Greece (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini). Next September we'll go back to visit Crete (I've been told a week is needed there). We'll try to fit in one or two more islands (Paxos, Naxos). It was the perfect time to visit. The weather was sunny but not hot and the crowds were at a minimum. There were no issues securing dinner reservations or too crowded narrow streets/alleyways.

    The pace was perfect! The resort we stayed at in Santorini is closing next week and the hotel in Mykonos is closing at the end of the month. Mykonos has GREAT shopping--high end and very tasteful souvenir shops. I had a blast (Gucci, Dior, LV). The Gucci store is also closing next week. The stock was very limited but I managed to pick up a nice item--much better prices Euro prices and the advantage of no VAT tax

    My next scheduled Tauck tour is Northern India and Nepal (December 2023). I throughly enjoyed the Portrait of India tour and looking forward to returning to Delhi and Agra and especially looking forward to the Nepal portion of the itinerary. I'll meet up with one of the solo travelers who was on the Portrait of India tour. We had a blast together! We've met for lunch in NYC when I was visiting the area.

    I'm considering reserving Singapore/Bali (2024)

    Stay Well & Safe Travels! B)

    Just got a brochure in the mail from RTS, offering a 2+ week trip to South America for $115K. Private jhet, all first class, lie flat seats, 50 or so guests. Certainly not a bargain, but if the OP's friend is looking to spend big, this might be it.
