NORWALK, Conn. — Tauck has announced a multiyear partnership with award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns and his longtime collaborator Dayton Duncan.

Tauck CEO Dan Mahar said the “Ken Burns American Journeys” partnership will initially focus on three areas: developing new domestic itineraries, creating special signature events featuring appearances by Burns and/or Duncan and producing a series of short films for use by Tauck on a number of its U.S. journeys.

The exclusive films will be aired on tours, and besides sharing the filmmaker’s perspectives, they’ll convey the history, the cultural significance and the personal stories of the people who shaped the places Tauck guests are visiting during their trip.

Duncan and Burns are known for such films as “The Civil War,” “Baseball,” “Jazz” and “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”
