In an email to guests and travel advisors, Tauck CEO Dan Mahar revealed that Tauck plans to fully restart its U.S. tours by July 1.
Mahar advised that 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 popular 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.
Along with providing several operational advantages, Mahar indicated that restarting in the U.S. also seemed fitting from a historical perspective. While Tauck offers tours and cruises in more than 70 countries and on all seven continents, but the company’s roots are firmly in the U.S. where it first began hosting travellers in 1925.
And today, the tour company’s U.S. trips offer unique access to exclusive experiences ranging from “inside the park” accommodations at America’s premier national parks to itineraries crafted in partnership with the award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns.
Going forward, Tauck indicated that while the restart only applies to its US domestic trips, it hopes to provide an update on selected international itineraries in the coming weeks.
The good news continues with a recent survey of more than 5,000 guests booked to travel with Tauck from now through September revealed that a full 95% of respondents have already been vaccinated, and another 2% have their vaccinations scheduled.
And although a small proportion of guests remain undecided, the overwhelming majority – a full 88% – are eagerly looking forward to taking their upcoming Tauck trip as planned.
