Tauck Exclusive – Library of Celsus dinner

An exclusive special dinner with chamber music at Ephesus' Library of Celsus

Although the ancient city of Ephesus, in what is now Turkey, was originally built by the Greeks in the 10th century AD, much of the ruins you'll see at the site today date to the city's Roman period – like the famed Library of Celsus, constructed in the 2nd century AD to memorialize a Roman governor of Asia. Only the facade of this remarkable building has survived, but restored and re-erected, it is a stunning example of Roman urban architecture... and the amazing nighttime setting for a Tauck Exclusive, al fresco dinner featuring a chamber music orchestra performance.

Hotel Grande Bretagne

Eternal elegance in Athens' ancient heart

Situated right in the heart of Athens since 1874, the five-star, landmark Hotel Grande Bretagne offers an unrivalled perspective of the Greek capital's mythical history, with breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament, lush Lycabettus Hill or the original Olympic Stadium. A favorite of celebrities and dignitaries for more than 140 years, this historic hotel is also within walking distance of exclusive shopping areas, museums and the business district.

From beginning to end, Treasures of the Aegean was a fabulous vacation and a wonderful experience. The organization, itinerary and accommodations were superb. Our Tauck Director was a gem; he made the trip fascinating, entertaining, effortless and worry free. We are already planning our next Tauck vacation.

Tauck Tour was memorable and the part Tauck handled was done extremely well. Disappointed in Wind Star, booked an AX cabin and found it cramped. The fabric furniture in the cabin and public areas were stained. The sails did not work and the Yacht overall looked in need of a complete overhaul, inside and out. Paid a premium price to not sail.

Most Memorable Moment:

Dinner at Ephesus, even though a Wind Star event.


I will start off by praising our tour director. He was our tour director on our Israel trip, and he continues to give his guests the greatest tour experiences. The dinner at the Library of Celcius was something we will never forget. This being our 14th trip allows me to say that Tauck did not live up to its reputation.

Most Memorable Moment:

The Windstar was below the standards we experienced on the river cruise trips. The ship was "tired". The breakfasts were sub-par and stale bagels, breads and danishes were common. Dinners had very small portions. The evening barbeque was great, but the dinners did not include even 1 choice of a Greek cuisine. The service on the ship was great.
