Ken Burns American Journeys

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.

Why Tauck and Ken Burns

Why Ken Burns American Journeys

In the words of filmmaker Ken Burns... "It’s a wonderful partnership. This is part of what we do now; we make films and we help design tours. We feel really privileged as filmmakers, and as Americans, to be able to tell the stories of our complicated history. I think Ken Burns American Journeys permit us to share some of the knowledge that we’ve accumulated by providing travel experiences that aren’t the same as a travel log or just a map detailing how to get there..."
