Portugal has always been on my bucket list for a very long time for its unique mix of old-world traditions – rich history, some of the best Portuguese cuisines and port wines from Duoro valley, historic monasteries, Douro River, palaces and castles. I could not have picked any other company to travel with than Tauck Tours. Tauck is one of the most luxurious company out there that is all inclusive, stays at 5 star boutique hotels, luxurious stops on trips, out of this world cuisines, excellent service, no extra cost on any optional excursions and my favorite slow paced tour that caters mainly to seniors. I can tell you that I am nowhere close to being a senior but it was nice to be treated like a VIP on a Tauck tour. Portugal with Tauck really delivered above and beyond my expectations.
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.
I love Costa Rica. I have now been there 5 times and I love it more each time I go and see and experience all the beauty Costa Rica has to offer.
This time, I went as a solo traveler with Tauck Earth Journeys. This is my 2ndTauck tour that I went solo on and had wonderful time on both of them. The group tour experience is great for single travelers.
The tour was called Costa Rica- Pura Vida with Tauck which is the country’s motto and is used the same way as Aloha in Hawaii.

The mountains are one of the things I miss the most from my home, Alaska, so I chose the Best of the Canadian Rockies with Tauck for the opportunity to see the Canadian Rockies and to stay at the famous Fairmont Hotels in Jasper, Banff and Lake Louise.
