With the new Tom Hanks film Elvis on movie screens in and with the late singer’s Graceland home also celebrating its 40th anniversary hosting public tours this month, Tauck has announced that guests on its Life on the Mississippi cruise-tour will receive a private after-hours tour of the Memphis mansion and grounds.
After announcing the restart of select tours and cruises in recent weeks, Tauck now plans to resume full operations of all remaining 2021 itineraries during August and September. This includes the return of Tauck’s Danube and Rhine river cruises, its land tours in Italy and elsewhere across Europe, and its explorations of far-flung destinations ranging from Morocco to Machu Picchu.
Tauck expects to operate more than 80% of its pre-pandemic portfolio of tours and cruises this year, with a full return of all itineraries slated for 2022.
Cruise World, which represents Tauck in New Zealand, reports enquiries for Europe river cruising. The company says that while availability on some 2022 dates is already limited, this news allows agents and their clients to do some travel planning.
