Travelers can begin booking Tauck’s 2014 Tauck Bridges family itineraries, which has launched three months earlier than in previous years.
Tauck launched the collection earlier to better serve agents, especially those planning multigenerational travel. “Large family reunion groups plan their trips farther in advance,” says Dan Mahar, Tauck’s CEO, “and having our 2014 information available to agents now will help them capture more of this extremely lucrative business.”
One of the itineraries, the 8-day Costa Rica: Jungles & Rainforests (rates $2,294 pp), takes travelers to Guanacaste, Muelle, Tortuguero and San Jose, visiting a chocolate workshop, the Arenal Volcano and rafting on the Peñas Blancas River. Meanwhile, on the 8-day Italia Bella: Rome to Venice itinerary (rates start at $4,229 pp), travelers stay overnight in Rome, Florence and Venice, meeting artisans who create Venice’s famed masks and taking a gondola ride through the city’s canals, as well as experiencing the Galleria degli Uffizi with a local guide in Florence and taking an after-hours tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel in Rome.
