Exclusively inclusive river cruising

When your road is the Danube, it’s enchanting... Austria, Slovakia, Hungary and Germany are linked by peaceful river landscapes dotted with storybook castles and romantic villages surrounded by stone terraced vineyards, where making world-class wines – and tasting them! – is an art.

A wonderfully preserved medieval castle and town in the Czech Carpathian mountains are as awe-inspiring as the palaces and museums of Imperial Vienna. As you cruise from port to port, explore the cobblestone streets and market squares in the Old Towns of Bratislava, Cesky Krumlov, Grein, Passau, and Regensburg, each offering unexpected cultural treasures and culinary pleasures around every bend. And the pièce de résistance – a Tauck Exclusive gala evening with music and dancing at a private palace conjures up elegant Old World Europe just for Tauck guests!

A step back in time... Cesky Krumlov!

Explore medieval Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov grew up around 13th-century Krumlov Castle, one of the largest castle complexes in the Czech Republic. In addition to the castle’s storied mix of architectural styles, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque among them, the Winter Riding School, lavishly built in Viennese Rococo style, is one of the highlights of any visit...

Tauck Exclusive – Imperial Evening at Palais Pallavicini

Our exclusive gala Imperial Evening at the private Palais Pallavicini in Vienna

Built in 1784, the sumptuous Palais Pallavicini is a grand private palace in the heart of Vienna whose magnificent Baroque touches transport you to another time. On many of our Danube river cruises, join us at the Palais for a gala evening featuring a reception, dinner and classical performances sure to sweep you off your feet... and let you experience firsthand how Europe's cultured classes lived and were entertained centuries ago. And film fans will note that the Palais and its elegant facade served as rogue Harry Lime's postwar Vienna apartment in the Cold War classic "The Third Man."

Off-boat excursions were led by Tauck directors and local guides with excellent bilingual skills who provided outstanding insights.

Trip was wonderful. Spent 3 nights in Vienna (2 nights included). Loved Vienna. Have absolutely no complaints about the entire trip. Everything was well planned, food was very good, and accomodations in Vienna and on the MS Savor were excellent. Tour directors were very helpful and were always available. Recommend this trip highly!

Most Memorable Moment:

Too many to mention! Dinner & entertainment at Palace in Vienna was excellent and probably my favorite.


This was our first Tauck trip and river cruise. We have absolutely no complaints. Each day offered excellent choices for tours and on board activities; the food was always good, and the cruise directors/guides were the best. Since we love music, we very much enjoyed hearing one of the Tauck Directors sing, and the dance party was such fun. Thanks, y'all!
