Preferred Travel of Naples holds Tauck luncheon

Preferred Travel of Naples held a special luncheon on January 20 at Artis Naples which featured third generation travel expert Peter Tauck.

Peter is an owner and partner of Tauck which was founded by in 1925 by his grandfather. During his presentation, he discussed various travel experiences and shared several heartfelt memories from Tauck trips and clients.

He went on to add that Tauck is about the “TSLB” experience. He wants his clients to have a travel experience that evokes feelings of tears in their eyes, smiles on their faces, lumps in their throats or butterflies in their stomachs. Experiencing travel and making memories in-style is evident with Tauck; their entire team of nearly 500 is committed to lifetime travel experiences.

Tauck added, “My grandfather believed deep in his heart that travel was transformational, magic — that it should be amazingly effortless, with most everything included, so you could be fully present to enjoy all its’ wonders. That you should travel in the company of someone who knows your name and shares your passion. That you should never settle for ordinary because once-in-a-lifetime experiences, like the ones we share on our trips, happen just once — but the memories will last lifetimes.”

“It was such a great honor to have Peter as our luncheon speaker; his company is always a pleasure to work with and to have him come to Naples to speak was just marvelous,” said Wilma Boyd, Founder and President of Preferred Travel of Naples. “And, to be able to donate the luncheon proceeds to a wonderful charity such as Friends of Foster Children Forever was a joy for us; they do so much for local foster children in Southwest Florida.”
