|TAUCK ANNOUNCES 2013 BRIDGES FAMILY ITINERARIES |
|River cruise itinerary, Bon Voyage: France Family River Cruise is main feature in new brochure|
Tauck has released its 2013 portfolio of Tauck Bridges family itineraries. Launched in 2004, the Tauck Bridges collection is comprised entirely of land journeys and cruises designed specifically for families travelling with children. |
Rather than dividing families with age-specific activities or facilities, Tauck Bridges trips are crafted to deliver “shared enrichment” through common experiences.
Featured prominently in Tauck’s 2013 Bridges collection is its new river cruise itinerary, Bon Voyage: France Family River Cruise. The 10-day itinerary begins with an included two-night hotel stay with guided sightseeing in Paris that highlights the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre and a dinner at Fouquet’s. Guests then travel on the high-speed TGV train to Lyon, where they’ll board Tauck’s MS Swiss Emerald for a seven-night cruise on the Rhone.
Tauck is including a number of activities for families throughout the itinerary, including a scavenger hunt in Paris’ Louvre, a lesson in “petanque” (a ball game similar to bocce) in Viviers, a hayride in the Camargue, bicycling in Avignon, and a hands-on French culinary experience in Tournon. Three departures of “Bon Voyage: France Family River Cruise,” will be offered in 2013, on July 11, July 25 and Aug. 1.
In all, for 2013 Tauck will operate departures of 17 Bridges itineraries highlighting destinations in Europe, North America, Latin America and Africa. Each Bridges trip is fully inclusive, with all accommodations, ground transportation, entertainment, sightseeing, gratuities, most meals, airport transfers, luggage handling and much more built into the price.
Returning Tauck Bridges travellers can also benefit from the company’s Gift of Time offer, which allows them to extend their 2013 journey with a complimentary hotel night. Guests can choose to redeem their free night at either the beginning or end of their Tauck journey, at the hotel normally featured on the first or last night of their itinerary. To qualify for the Gift of Time, returning guests must book their 2013 Tauck Bridges trip and secure it with a deposit no later than December 28, 2012. Other restrictions may apply.
Information on Tauck’s full 2013 family travel line-up is contained in the company’s new 76-page Tauck Bridges brochure, which is currently mailing to travel agents and consumers. Those interested in more information can call Tauck at 1-800-468-2825, or visit Tauck online at tauck.com.
