One look at the itinerary confirmed that we still wanted to go.
I confirmed this with our travel agent (Mindy at Pavlus Travel), and also asked her to book us one pre-tour hotel night and two post-tour nights.
I have no hesitations recommending her if you are considering booking a tour with Tauck. Here is the information Mindy needed to relay to Tauck order to book our reservations: I gave her the information, she called Tauck and made the booking, and confirmed our booking within a few hours.
She said that Tauck usually mailed out documents 3 or 4 weeks after final payment is received (which is due no later than sixty days before departure).
Some areas were very hot; others were a bit chilly. We traveled on planes, trains, buses, vans, taxis, rickshaw, boats, and elephants.Mindy is very experienced with booking Tauck tours, and has been great to work with.Pavlus Travel books more Tauck Tours than any other travel agency.Incidentally, Pavlus Travel claims to be "the world's largest single office seller of Tauck World Discovery Tours".I appreciate working with a travel company that has plenty of experience with the specific travel I am doing.
