WILTON, CT (August 23, 2016)  Tauck, the Wilton, CT-based leader in  premium-quality guided travel, was recently honored by a leading luxury travel group with the organization’s 2016 award as "Best Destinations & Experiences Escorted Tour Partner."  The award was presented by Virtuoso at their 28th annual Virtuoso Travel Week conference in Las Vegas, NV.  Virtuoso is the leading international luxury travel agency network, with over 390 travel agencies and more than 11,400 elite travel advisors in 40 countries.  Tauck also captured the same award last year.

Tauck was honored as part of the Virtuoso Destination Showcase Awards, which were presented on August 8th before an audience of close to 1,400 attendees during the Destination Showcase Dinner & Awards at the Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
