Ita Buttrose to host Tauck's French waterways river cruise

Travel the World and Tauck are very excited to announce that Tauck's Australian Ambassador, Ita Buttrose, will be hosting a French Waterways River Cruise from Paris to Lyon in May 2014.

In addition to rubbing shoulders with Ita, guests joining Tauck's French Waterways River Cruise will travel along the Rhône through spectacular French vineyard country, stay at the Hotel du Collectionneur Arc de Triomphe in Paris, ride the high-speed TGV through the French country side and experience Tauck's newly refurbished ms Swiss Emerald.

Ita will host a fabulous cocktail party for Tauck guests onboard ms Swiss Emerald during the ten day cruise. Guests will also get to experience a private wine tasting in Beaujolais and Châteaneuf-du-Pape, explore Lyon's historic indoor food market, and enjoy an exquisite dinner overlooking the Pont du Gard.

For all earlybird bookings made prior to 31st August 2013, Tauck offers one complimentary night at one of its premium hotels, the day before or after the river cruise.

Ita says, "Ask any Tauck guest and they will tell you that Tauck is their river cruise operator of choice because Tauck takes care of every detail every day – allowing you to relax and enjoy your adventure. Virtually every travel expense is included in one up-front price with no hidden costs."

Ita Buttrose is an Australian icon and was named 2013 Australian of the Year. She is a journalist, author and businesswoman who is greatly admired for her stellar career, her wit and charm and her tireless efforts for charities such as Alzheimer's Australia, of which she is the National President.

Ita is proud to be Tauck's Australian ambassador. "Travel is one of my great passions and it's been a joy getting to know fellow Australians who are long-time 'Tauckers'. These fellow intrepid travellers are equally passionate about exploring the world and their loyalty to Tauck is indeed rare in the highly competitive travel industry. There are good reasons they trust Tauck with their travel dreams...they know through first-hand experience that Tauck not only delivers great value, but superior quality, personal service and insider access on over 100 tours and cruises worldwide."
