After a full year of suspended tours and cruises, Tauck announced on Tuesday the full restart of U.S. tours.
In an email to guests and travel advisors, Tauck CEO Dan Mahar revealed the company’s plans to fully restart its U.S. tours by July 1. The announcement noted that departures of Tauck’s “Southern Charms: Savannah, Hilton Head and Charleston” itinerary have already begun operating, to be followed this month by “New Orleans & Mississippi River Country,” with other tours across the country relaunching in the coming months. Guests and travel advisors can access information on specific tour departures at a new Open for Travel page on Tauck’s website.
Tauck’s readiness to restart its U.S. operations was demonstrated in January and February when it ran several departures of its “Wonderland: Yellowstone in Winter” itinerary. According to Mahar, the success of those tours was a key factor in leading to Tuesday’s announcement. “Guests told us they loved their tours, and their positive feedback proved conclusively that we can deliver a true Tauck-level experience while still following all of the appropriate health and safety protocols,” said Mahar in a press statement.
