Welcome to Tauck's Celebration of Roses Event

We could think of no better way to launch our 100th anniversary year than by bringing back A Celebration of Roses, combining small group sightseeing tracks by day with exclusive private gala evening events held in premier venues. Images of Hollywood's halcyon days come to life in Beverly Hills and Hollywood, evoking a nostalgic look at the film industry and the stars who made movies shine... ringing in the New Year at an exclusive Roaring 20s themed party... and having the "Best day Ever!" from premier Grandstand seating at the 136th Rose Parade.

Stay in a historic landmark hotel steps from glamorous Rodeo Drive as you indulge in the celebrity-oriented five-star service of the Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel that pampers your imagination with movie-set locations during your four-night stay. Take a trip back in time to when the talkies made history on a guided tour of Warner Bros. Studio and visit The Huntington, where rare books, art and gardens promise a feast for the senses. Stop to smell the roses at the Parade Barn, where a behind-the-scenes visit reveals make-up secrets of the Rose Parade floral stars. Attend an exclusive Roaring 20s New Years Eve party... the 136th Rose Parade from premier Grandstand seating... have lunch at a four-generation family-owned winery... visit the Academy Awards Museum, Peterson Automotive Museum or LA County Museum of Art as you choose – and have lunch at a sought-after beach club oceanfront in Santa Monica or optional tickets to the 111th Rose Bowl Game® in Tauck's optional reserved seats, picnic lunch in hand. Make the start of 2025 truly the best year ever with us at a "Celebration of Roses."

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!

Art masterpieces & spectacular gardens – a visit to The Huntington

Day 3

Art Museum... Library... Botanical Gardens... explore The Huntington

Visit The Huntington in Pasadena, where an esteemed library of rare books and manuscripts include a Gutenberg Bible, a manuscript of the Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer, books by Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus and numerous items relating to the US Civil War; an art museum of international renown showcases the works of European and American artists in galleries awe-inspiring to behold; and manicured gardens, meticulously curated like museums, are truly memorable

Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel

A fitting base for your "Celebration of Roses" Event – Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel

If the historic Beverly Wilshire looks familiar, it might be for two reasons – its exceptional location and service – or because the hotel was the primary setting for the 1990s hit film "Pretty Woman." Originally built in 1928, the hotel has reinvented itself throughout the decades while retaining its popularity with the ever-changing "in" crowd. Located at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo Drive, you'll spend four nights in what is thought to be the best location in the heart of Beverly Hills – with designer shopping, fine dining and postcard-worthy views at your doorstep.

What To Pack

Dress for comfort and convenience with a wardrobe that is flexible and allows for layering. Casual, cotton resort wear is suggested. For the New Year's Eve Gala event, you may wish to dress up a bit – jacket and tie for men, casually-elegant outfit for ladies - but by all means be comfortable. A light jacket or sweater for late evenings or early mornings is recommended. Comfortable walking shoes that have already been broken-in are advisable.

Bathrobes and hairdryers are provided in each hotel room.

We recommend that you pack an adequate supply of your prescription medication in its original container to last through the entire event, together with a copy of your doctor's prescription (or a letter from your health-care provider on office stationery explaining that the medication has been prescribed for you), a list of the generic names of your medication, your travel documents and a change of clothing in your carry-on bag to avoid any inconvenience in the event that your flight or luggage is delayed.

Following is a list of recommended items to pack for the Celebration of Roses Event:

  • Jacket and tie for men
  • Casually-elegant outfit for ladies
  • Casual daytime wear – shorts, slacks, long and short-sleeved shirts
  • Sunglasses, sunscreen, hat
  • Swimwear
  • Gym wear
  • A light sweater or jacket for cloudy weather or a breezy night
  • Binoculars (7x50 preferably)
  • Insect repellent
  • Camera, lenses, batteries, memory cards and chargers
  • Lightweight, comfortable, sturdy walking shoes that have already been broken-in
  • Travel alarm clock/cell phone with alarm functions (many hotels do not have clocks in the rooms)
  • Reusable zipper lock bags or other waterproof bags

  • Sundries and toiletries that may be difficult to find en route

Air Information and Luggage Restrictions

Checked Luggage – General

Due to space restrictions, we ask that you please limit your checked luggage to one suitcase per person weighing no more than 50 pounds (23 kg) and with overall dimensions (length + width + height) not exceeding 62 inches (158 cm).

Besides complying with the Tauck restriction noted above, you should also be sure to research and comply with all airline baggage restrictions relating to your flights to and from your Tauck journey. Airlines have become much more strict in enforcing size and weight limits in recent years, and luggage exceeding airline standards for size or weight may result in expensive overage fees or other consequences.

Airlines are free to revise luggage policies without notice, and certain airlines have different baggage allowances for different classes of service. Researching and complying with airline luggage restrictions is the responsibility of the guest, and Tauck cannot be held responsible for any costs or disruptions to travel caused by the failure to research and comply with airline policies.

Please be sure to attach your Tauck luggage tag to your suitcase before leaving home!

Carry-on Luggage - General

Although oversize bags and wheeled, carry-on luggage are popular for airline travel, they are often not convenient or appropriate for motor coach travel or for many on-tour flights. Most modern sightseeing motor coaches offer limited space for numerous or larger items. Space under seats or in the overhead rack is typically small, and designed to accommodate items like coats, hats, purses, and small camera bags, etc.

For your day-to-day travel while on tour, we recommend that you limit your hand luggage to a small, soft-sided carry-on piece, and that you bring only those items you need handy during the day such as make-up, medications, cameras, film, etc. Items too large to fit under the motor coach seat or on the overhead rack must be stored in the luggage bays beneath the motor coach, and may be inaccessible during daytime travel.
