Puglia, Italy - June 2016

Italy is probably my favorite place in the world, I have literally been there dozens of times, and Puglia is the only area in Italy that I have not explored. My June Tauck trip to Puglia is filling up fast. Selected as one of the hottest spots to travel by Conde Nast, Puglia is the long heel of Italy’s boot. There are few hotels in the region, so they sell quickly.


Puglia is what Young Travel considers the perfect holiday destination, offering not only some of Italy's loveliest beaches but also a sublime climate, fascinating towns, archaeological sites....and supposedly the best food in Italy!


Consider booking this trip to Puglia now before this secret gem is revealed to the world! Get more info on the Puglia Tauck trip.

If you want to visit Kenya and Tanzania during the great migration, make plans now to visit Africa for this ultimate lifetime experience in September 2017 . You will see thousands and thousands of animals including wildebeest, giraffes, and zebras. It is the sheer quantity of these animals migrating that make the trip so amazing.

Bon Voyage to Tahiti

Nancy is leaving this week on an agent-education seminar to experience the Paul Gaugin. She will hit the major islands including Bora Bora and Moorea. The 332-passenger ship solely explores Tahiti so the culture is integrated with the on-board experience. All employees are Tahitian and locals are brought aboard to perform, demonstrate customs, and sell local art. Ask us about this award-winning luxury cruise ship now.

River Cruising

Lots of people have traveled "all over the world" but have never been on a small cruise for an intimate excursion. River cruises are an excellent and comfortable way to see the world, not to mention the perks you receive such as all-inclusive tours and alcoholic beverages.


Italy & France are favorites to many, while others prefer the Rhine and rivers in Asia. There are many itineraries to select the perfect cruise. Have you looked into an all-inclusive river cruise?
