The Spirit of the Desert with Tauck

A fantastic and educational experience for me, this tour The Spirit of the Desert has the perfect mix of American history and modern day experiences blended into an extremely well paced and choreographed itinerary.

Our Tauck Tour Director was very knowledgeable on the area, personable, patient, and a lot of fun.  He has been a Tour Director with Tauck for 17 years and his experience and professionalism really made this tour exceptional. There were lovely little surprises along the way – a gourmet dinner in the middle of the desert under the stars complete with candlelight, tablecloths and wine waiters; buckets full of cold water awaiting us after our hike into Bryce Canyon; scrumptious chocolate chip cookies beckoning us as we stood in awe of the Grand Canyon, and absolutely NO optional extras to worry about – even wine on the first and last night of the tour!  The value really is there as you virtually don’t put your hand in your pockets – even gratuities to local guides is all taken care of by Tauck!

Tauck make everything seamless, from ensuring Tauck guests are given priority dining in the restaurants, the very best accommodation in the area, entertaining and interesting guest lecturers who give the tour a special authenticity, and my luggage miraculously appeared on the coach every day!  I felt like an individual travelling within a friendly, small group and never felt like I was being herded on a Group tour.

Everyone deserves at least one Tauck Tour in their life, but I know once you have experienced one – you will be back again and again.
