Thanks to a partnership between award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, his co-producer, Dayton Duncan, and the Tauck tour company, you can experience American destinations through Burns’ lens, so to speak.
A new take on guided vacations
It’s been 90 years since Arthur Tauck Sr. founded Tauck Motor Tours in 1925. A lot has changed in nine decades, both for the still-family-owned tour company and the nature of guided vacations in general.
A few years ago, after the airing of Burns’ PBS documentary series The National Parks: America’s Best Idea, Tauck President Jennifer Tombaugh remembers sitting around a board meeting and coming up with the “what if.”
“We’re always trying to raise the bar and enhance the guest experience,” she says. “One thing led to another, and we are so thrilled to now be working with Ken and Dayton on Ken Burns American Journeys.”
