Along Europe's Scenic "Yellow Roads"

A necklace of historic cities, sprawling vineyards & gor­geous beaches – along a sun-drenched coastline that’s best described in jewels... There’s a reason why the Adriatic Coast is a must-go travel destination… 

Find history chronicled in medieval villages, Roman ruins and castle keeps and traditions you can taste at vineyards, markets and bakeries... Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic; Split, nestled against a turquoise sea; Zagreb, a diamond in the rough; Ljubljana, a city of ruby red wine; Istria, bucolic and blessed with garnet soil, emerald valleys and sapphire seas; and Venice, gilded with gemstone palaces, laced with canals and graced with treasures that are nothing less than exquisite... Explore them up close and in depth through cultural experiences equally dazzling. Read Less

Meet Croatia's former Minister of Tourism

Day 7

A discussion with Croatia's former Minister of Tourism in Zagreb

After receiving a Masters Degree in tourism economics at the Faculty of Economics and Business in Zagreb, Dubrovnik native Pave Zupan Ruskovic spent decades as an innovative and award-winning executive in the international tourism industry before being named Croatia's Minister of Tourism in 2000. During her tenure, she oversaw one of the most important periods in the development of Croatian tourism after the conflicts of the 1990s, and spearheaded Croatia's participation in the United Nations World Tourism Organization. In Zagreb, you'll meet Ms. Zupan Ruskovic for an insightful conversation about life and tourism in Croatia today.

Slovenia's Postojna Caves

Day 10

Explore Slovenia's fascinating Postojna Caves on an exclusive early train tour

Today one of Slovenia's most-visited attractions, the Postojna Caves near the capital city of Ljubljana officially became a tourist destination nearly two centuries ago, after the Austro-Hungarian Archduke Ferdinand visited them in 1819. An extensive series of subterranean limestone karst caves carved by the Pivka River over some two million years, the Postojna system is roughly 15 miles (24 km) long, comprising four interconnected caves with features including Big Mountain Hall, Spaghetti (or Tube) Hall, Concert Hall (known for its excellent acoustics), an iconic formation known as "Brilliant," and the only underground post office on Earth. On an early-morning visit, you'll explore the caves both on foot and aboard the 21st-century version of an electric train that began service a century ago.

Tauck Exclusive – Lunch and more at Trakošćan Castle

Day 8

Go back in time with an exclusive royal welcome, tour and lunch at Croatia's Trakošćan Castle

Owned off and on since the 16th century by the noble Drašković family and now a Croatian national historic site, the fortress known as Trakošćan Castle dates back to the 13th century, but the current neo-Gothic structure you'll visit today was reconstructed in the mid-1800s. On your exclusive early-opening visit for Tauck guests only, you'll be welcomed to the castle by Renaissance-costumed knights and ladies-in-waiting, and treated to a guided tour followed by lunch inside the castle's opulent Knights’ Hall.

Taste olive oil, truffles and more

Days 4, 10 and 11

Taste traditionally made olive oils, truffles and more at family-owned farms and other venues

Taste your way through Croatia and Slovenia on “Adriatic Treasures” with culinary experiences including a farm-fresh snack of cheese, veggies, bread and wine with an olive-oil demo and tasting at a family owned farm in the village of Orašac; tastings of local cookies, teran liqueur and honey at Ljubljana Castle; a visit and tasting at a gingerbread making workshop; a Tauck Exclusive hunting and tasting experience at a family-owned truffle farm; a tasting at a family-run olive oil farm in Vodnjan; and a six-course beer-pairing dinner and tour with a beer sommelier at the San Servolo brewery.

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

One Upfront Price

Get what you pay for and then some – about 100 cost components are included on every trip. From fine hotels in prime locations to all luggage handling, most taxes, airport transfers upon arrival and departure, unique travel experiences and more. Because we believe that when you travel, just about everything should be included.

Book Your Air

Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.
