My most recent trip in June was a disaster. This was my 3rd trip with Tauck. My first riverboat trip was 3 years ago and it was magical and wonderful, this trip was awful.
The ship was worn and in dire need of updating. The hot tub was not working, nor was there any water in it. They ruined my blouse that I sent to laundry. The food was adequate but not good.
The Riverboat part of our trip did not exist. The water was too high to safely float and get through the locks safely. We called Tauck day before leaving and they told us there was no problem with the water level. I understand that could happen, but we were put on buses the whole day from early in the morning for 8 entire days to towns that offered no value. They never gave us an option to return to the States or go to Paris early like other Riverboat companies did. The compensation they offered was insulting and inadequate. Tauck is supposed to be the best, and I paid a very high price for the best quality. I will never travel with Tauck again.
