My family and I had the opportunity to go on The Rhine, Swiss Alps and Amsterdam with Tauck in September. It was a wonderful trip, and definitely up to Tauck’s second to none standards. After flying into Zurich, Switzerland, we were transferred (complementary) by Tauck to the capital city of Bern. The hotel Tauck uses is the Bellevue Palace Bern and is in the old quarter of the city, next door to the parliament building. Bern is one of the most beautiful, classically European cities I have ever been in. The view from the back porch of the hotel was amazing.
It might seem like the cold season brings a stop to your vacations, or that you have to wait months before heading out on your next adventure. Nevertheless, this winter season is the perfect opportunity to visit new destinations.
My wife and I decided to take the Viking Rhine Getaway from Basel to Amsterdam, an 8 day trip with 2 post nights in Amsterdam. We’re both in our early 40s which made us among the youngest travelers on the boat.
