All about cruising along the River Seine through northern France

Tauck Exclusive – Evening at Château de Bizy

A night of Baroque splendor in Normandy

In the Normandy village of Tilly sits a grand manor house that's been dubbed the "Versailles of Normandy," Château de Bizy. Not only was it inspired by the "Sun King" Louis IV's spectacular Château de Versailles, but Louis XV actually called it home for a time. Today, it's the opulent setting for a Tauck Exclusive reception and dinner accompanied by live music and brimming in Baroque grandeur.

The Savoy

History and elegance in the heart of London

Welcome to The Savoy, a place where history and iconic elegance mingles with new-world sophistication. A world-famous name, celebrated for sublime service, and graced by dignitaries and the global jet-set… where Art Deco rubs shoulders with English Edwardian. The Savoy stands proudly on the north bank of the River Thames. The ballet, opera and theatre of vibrant Covent Garden are just steps away, while the City, world-renowned museums and galleries, and the designer shopping of Knightsbridge and Mayfair within easy reach. It's the definitive destination in the heart of London.

Of the 4 Tauck tours we have taken, this was the best so far. The tinerary was fun and interesting every day, start to finish!

What you need to know

Before You Go

Required

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.
