In 2010, we approached award-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan about joining together to develop special travel experiences around the themes of their documentary films created over 30+ years.
Today, we’ve enhanced 15+ journeys with Stories by Ken Burns – over 100 original film vignettes exclusively produced for Tauck; created Crafted By Tauck & Ken Burns, new journeys immersing in the themes of Ken and Dayton's films; and developed Ken Burns Events, special themed travel experiences. These inspiring travels connect guests with destinations in deep and lasting ways.
Tapping into their acclaimed films, Ken and Dayton share their unique perspectives, behind-the-scenes insights and their extensive network of local experts to maximize your travel experiences in ways that add layers of meaning and appreciation.
These trips can change the way you view the world – and maybe even yourself.
Discover the world on guided land trips filled with in-depth cultural exploration in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand... connecting people and places with the promise of an inspirational travel experience that’s seamlessly choreographed. Personalized service, quality experience and inclusive value mean great value the world over.
