Tauck and filmmaker Ken Burns will once again partner on itineraries, this time on two new Vietnam voyages.

Beginning in 2018, two Southeast Asia tours from Tauck’s Exotics collection will include filmed vignettes, exclusive to Tauck.

During the 16-day “Indochina: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos” and the 16-day “Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand” itineraries will show 10 to 15 minutes shorts during the Vietnam portion of the journey.

The shorts feature Burns, along with his co-director and producer, discussing a wide range of topics, including how cultural and political divides from the Vietnam War continue to echo in America today and how the changing media landscape of the 1960s and early 1970s shaped the course of the conflict.

Tauck will show between eight and 10 vignettes on each of its Southeast Asia tours. It has already produced over 130 vignettes with Burns that have been featured on nearly two dozen Tauck tours across the U.S.

The announcement comes as Burns and his co-director Lynn Novick, along with producer Sarah Botstein, gear up to premiere the 10-part documentary “The Vietnam War” this September on PBS. Burns also directed and produced documentaries “Brooklyn Bridge” and “The Central Park Five."
