Welcome to Tauck's Celebration of Roses Event

Images of Hollywood’s halcyon days along Hollywood and Sunset boulevards, and the stars immortalized in front of TCL Chinese Theatre… backstage as a VIP at Paramount Pictures, America’s oldest running movie studio… the legacy of a movie star who became America’s 40th President at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum… ringing in the New Year at an exclusive black tie gala evening… and all the magic of Pasadena’s Rose Parade from a sneak peek of the floats at the Parade Barns, to viewing them from premier Grandstand seating on the first turn of the Parade route.

Step out on the red carpet throughout our multi-day celebration in Southern California and four nights at Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica, crowned by Tauck’s exclusive New Year’s Eve black tie dinner dance! Go behind the scenes at the Rose Parade Float Construction Barns… enjoy a backstage pass to iconic Paramount Pictures Studio… be among the first to visit the Academy Awards Museum, opening in 2020... take a privately guided tour and enjoy lunch under the wings of Air Force One at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum… on New Year’s Day, watch the Rose Parade® from premier Grandstand seating on the first turn of the parade route… if you wish, attend the 107th Rose Bowl Game® in Tauck’s optional reserved seats, or enjoy New Year’s Day lunch at a private club and tour The Huntington Gardens…

Tauck Exclusive – Rose Parade Float Barns

Day 2

An exclusive look behind-the-scenes at the Rose Parade Float Construction Barns

Welcoming the New Year in like nothing else, Pasadena’s Rose Parade has been drawing crowds for years with its creatively designed floral floats, every visible surface ingeniously covered with flowers, bark, leaves or seeds. With Tauck, you’ll see the floats close-up, both before and during the Parade. First, learn what it takes to make these amazing floats when we take you behind-the-scenes at the Parade Float Construction Barns for an up-close look at the pre-parade preparations. Then, on New Year’s Day, you’ll see them in their full technicolor floral glory from the best seats along the parade route; we’ve reserved them especially for our guests!

Tauck Exclusive – Gala New Year's Party

Day 3

Ring in the New Year with our private Gala New Year's Party in Santa Monica

Our "Celebration of Roses" Event is highlighted by the party of the year – our Tauck Exclusive New Year’s Eve extravaganza at Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica! This elegant and festive soirée begins with a black tie cocktail reception… continues with dinner and dancing to the Big Band sounds of Rik Howard, an award-winning musical director, musician, singer and songwriter, and his orchestra... and of course includes a champagne toast and a memorable rendition of “Auld Lang Syne”!

Tauck Exclusive – Private Reagan Library tour and lunch

Day 3

At the Reagan Library, enjoy an exclusive lunch under the wings of Air Force One

Perched on a hilltop surrounded by sweeping vistas of Simi Valley, the mountains, and the Pacific, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum are dedicated to the life and times of the 40th President of the US. On your private visit to the complex during our "Celebration of Roses" event, explore a full-size replica of the Oval Office as it appeared during Reagan’s White House years; see an exhibit on the Berlin Wall, featuring parts of the wall itself; and enjoy a Tauck Exclusive lunch in the Air Force One Pavilion, dining under the wings of the actual Air Force One aircraft – tail number 27000 – which flew seven US presidents!

Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica

Nights 1, 2, 3 and 4

A fitting base for your "Celebration of Roses" Event – Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica

At the luxurious Fairmont Miramar on Santa Monica Beach, your Deluxe or Premier oceanview guest room sports elegant coastal California style, featuring Frette linens and overstuffed comforters. Harmonizing with your hotel’s lush setting, the Lobby Lounge, adorned with a soothing koi pond and waterfalls, is a perfect place to relax or grab a bite, as are Fig Restaurant, serving dishes made of the freshest organic ingredients from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market, and The Bungalow, a beachside casita with sweeping decks, vaulted ceilings, intimate patios, and outdoor bars. The Fairmont Miramar is a wonderful spot to watch the sun set over the ocean... and ring in the New Year!

What you need to know

Before You Go


Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.
