Cruise New Zealand's Marlborough Sounds

Day 13

A luncheon cruise featuring wine and green-lipped mussels

From New Zealand’s South Island – renowned for its incredible seafood and its wine-growing expertise – set off on a private luncheon cruise on Marlborough Sounds, featuring local wine and delectable green-lipped mussels; sail amidst forested landscapes rising steeply from the sea around a scenic coastline of sheltered inlets and sandy bays.

Tasting your way through Sydney

Day 9

A "Foodie Tour" sampling some of Sydney's coolest eats

A knowledgeable local guide leads the way on a "Taste of Sydney" foodie tour that celebrates the multicultural heritage of the city and its gastronomic legacy – including seafood at a fish market; meat pie tasting (try their house specialty, Tiger Pie) at Harry’s famous pie cart; a craft beer tasting at a 100-year-old pub; a sweet sampling of gelato and more.

Silky Oaks Lodge

Nights 4, 5 and 6

In one of the world's oldest rainforests, a tropical paradise

Silky Oaks Lodge borders one of the oldest rainforests on Earth – Australia's World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park – and overlooks the beautiful Mossman River. It's the perfect spot for experiencing fine dining in an ancient rainforest... indulging in the award-winning Healing Waters Spa... going for lazy swims in the Billabong... or simply enjoying the stunning forest and river vistas from a hammock.

We have traveled the world extensively, but this was our first Tauck Tour. It won't be our last. The organization and value for what was included exceeded our expectations.

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.
