Tauck Exclusive – Dinner at a Royal Palace

Exclusive Tauck evening at Serbia's Royal White Palace in Belgrade

The Serbian Royal Family's White Palace (Beli Dvor) in the Dedinje Complex in Belgrade was built for the then Crown Princes of Yugoslavia in the 1930s, and shares the complex with the Royal Palace, built a decade earlier and now home to HRH Crown Prince Alexander II of Serbia. The beautiful neo-Classical White Palace is the setting for our Tauck Exclusive gala dinner in Belgrade... an evening you won't soon forget!

Another winner! My third solo traveler trip with Tauck. Both ship and shore activities were all well planned, interesting and fun.

Everything was taken care of by Tauck. Such a relief to not worry about anything!

Most Memorable Moment:

A visit with a family in Croatia was outstanding. To talk with people who live every day lives in another culture. Such an educational experience. They were so willing to share their experiences of the Serb Croatian war. Something the typical American does not experience.Made me more appreciative of where I live.


Another winner! My third solo traveler trip with Tauck. Everything was fantastic. The ship, staff, crew, and Tauck directors were excellent. Great fellow shipmates. Both ship and shore activities were all well planned, interesting, and fun. The local guides were all excellent. Both as relaxing or as active as you want to be. The food was incredible.

Most Memorable Moment:

Hard to pick a favorite. Really impressed meeting the Crowned Prince of Serbia. Also was highly entertained by the glass blower. Very highly pleased with Budapest. Beautiful city with so much to see and do. I really enjoyed all the Roman history throughout the whole tour.
