This was our second experience with Tauck, the first being their Best of the Canadian Rockies tour. It was also our first river cruise. We chose this particular cruise because of the starting and ending cities, Prague and Budapest. We have always wanted to visit those cities. Based on our prior experience with Tauck we had high expectations. I have to say on this cruise Tauck far exceeded even those high expectations. The hotels were fantastic at both ends. The ship, MS Joy, was immaculate, the staff super friendly and helpful, and the food exceptional. The tours were spot on with friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. Our fellow travelers were all great people to travel with, and yes as someone previously noted, mostly senior citizens like ourselves. We particularly loved Prague and Budapest. We traveled in late October/ early November of this year and surprisingly the weather was great.
I read a lot of the Tauck reviews on this site and while some of the criticism sounds legit much of it sounds overly critical for small things. I always look for the overall trend and not the individual reviews. We cannot say enough good things about Tauck and are already planning our next Tauck trip.
Clean and roomy.
