Recent Reviews What our clients are saying about the Luxury Tours they have taken

The Ultimate White Xmas   , NSW, Australia, Dec 2023
When I booked this I was hoping to get a true white Xmas and this trip met all of my expectations. Xmas Day in Lake Louise was perfect, enough snow to enjoy and play and blue skies to make it picturesque. Scenic Tours are always well structured, excellent in all aspects from accommodation to inclusions and options, pace of travel and most importantly ...read more staff- tour guide and driver.
India   , NSW, Australia, Jul 2023
We have recently had 12 days in India with a tour organised by Crooked Compass, prior to a family wedding. This was the best thing we could have done to enjoy travelling in such a foreign country. The itinerary included everything we wished for, like walking the streets of old Delhi with Salaam Balaak street kids, visiting Ladli in Jaipur who provide ...read more vocational training to orphans and street kids, spending time with elephants and at a sloth bear sanctuary. Our driver was amazing and became a friend, the tour guides were very knowledgeable and able to share their passion for their cities with us. Loved the colours and the crazy traffic, the history and the people. A highly recommendable experience.
Switzerland is Amazing   , WA, Australia, Jul 2023
Switzerland by Rail was a great insight into Switzerland and well worth a fortnight holiday in one country. However, APT left a lot to be desired and I will personally not travel with them again. Fabulous hotels, but as a Solo traveller (hence pays a big single supplement), always seemed to get a very small back room. I kept feeling that APT were cutting ...read more costs. The meals were acceptable but always a set menu, take it or leave it, no choices. One tiny glass of wine included in the dinner was pathetic as that, on most occasions, was finished before the meal was even served. Again, cutting costs at our expense.
Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna and Prague   , Korea, May 2023
The poor weather (rain, cold and wind) was a distraction throughout the tour which, unfortunately, had a negative effect on many of the venues. It made the tour guides jobs particularly difficult. Not Tauck's problem but, nonetheless, it was unfortunate as it negatively impacted the tour. When we booked this tour, we compared it to another Tauck Eastern ...read more European tour referred to as a Jewish Heritage Tour. As we are are not of Jewish faith, we felt that this tour would not be meaningful to us. In hindsight, we are not sure that the tour we chose would have been much different from the Jewish Heritage Tour. Most of the members in our tour group were in fact Jewish and the focus of the tour definitely was on the Jewish faith and the Holocaust. I would like to suggest that Tauck make more of an effort to differentiate between these two tours. There is much to consider in an Eastern European tour that does not focus so highly on the Jewish heritage.

On a very positive note, the local tour guides were excellent, very knowledgeable, courteous and friendly. Our Tauck Tour Guide was also excellent with extensive experience in Eastern Europe. One final negative comment, unfortunately. Even though we realize that Tauck does not make hotel room assignments, we feel that they can do a much better job of influencing the hotels on our stay to provide rooms that are more comparable to the cost of our tour. We have not once during our Tauck tours been assigned a hotel room with a view of anything but rooftops of adjacent buildings or a view of another section of the hotel itself. That's not what we feel we deserve for the money we pay for these tours. On a closing note, we are booked on our next Tauck tour to Portugal in October and plan to book a follow-on Tauck tour to New Zealand on 2024.
