All about cruising along the River Seine through northern France

A private evening at Château du Taillis

Enjoying the pleasures of Normandy with a private evening at Château du Taillis

Prepare to be pampered during an evening of finery and fun at a grand 16th-century Renaissance château set on a park-like estate in the Normandy countryside not far from the Seine. Built in 1530 atop the foundation of a fortified 13th-century castle, the Château du Taillis boasts a 300-year medley of architectural styles that reflect the tastes and times of its owners. Today, you’ll own the night at the château as you are feted at a private reception and dinner inside its opulent ballroom, music playing.

The Savoy

History and elegance in the heart of London

Welcome to The Savoy, a place where history and iconic elegance mingles with new-world sophistication. A world-famous name, celebrated for sublime service, and graced by dignitaries and the global jet-set… where Art Deco rubs shoulders with English Edwardian. The Savoy stands proudly on the north bank of the River Thames. The ballet, opera and theatre of vibrant Covent Garden are just steps away, while the City, world-renowned museums and galleries, and the designer shopping of Knightsbridge and Mayfair within easy reach. It's the definitive destination in the heart of London.

Of the 4 Tauck tours we have taken, this was the best so far. The tinerary was fun and interesting every day, start to finish!

Trip was overall ok. Tauck tour folks were not as good as others. When we had time on our own they did not check with each person to make sure they had something to do. Local tour guides did not consider the cold, rainy weather and that folks might be cold, etc. and maybe they should cut their talk short. Food at Paris chateau was very mediocre.

Most Memorable Moment:

Monet's home and gardens


The trip was a great experience, all around- typical of Tauck! The hotels were luxurious and well situated both, in London and Versailles. The MS Sapphire was a magnificent vessel, well appointed and the staff were all professional and so attentive. The extra Tauck touches were appreciated: on board lectures, access to sites early, great guides.

Most Memorable Moment:

The Normandy beaches were very moving. Wished we had more time there! Could have skipped the lunch. Wish there had been more excursion options in London. We did take an extra day there and did several of the sites on our own, but there were so many more that we could have seen. Loved getting access to Giverny and Versailles before open to public
