Why Travel with Back-Roads
Maximum Group Size 18
With a maximum of 18 passengers, their professional tour leaders are able to offer a more personalised experience, with more attention to the interests of individuals and flexible touring days
Scenic Back Roads not freeways
Back-Roads touring mini-coaches can travel along local roads and across breath-taking mountain passes, to find charming villages and picturesque vistas which lie beyond the well-worn tourist trails, and reach places where large motor coaches cannot go
They choose charming accommodation to reflect the character of the region you visit, from a French chateau, to a small country inn. Every style of accommodation is in keeping with its surrounds and brings more authenticity to the itinerary
Authentic Local Experiences
Back-Roads touring recognise that authentic local experiences have greater appeal than attractions on the typical tourist trail. They take the time to seek out experiences where the guests can relate to local crafts and culture
Sampling local cuisine is an integral part of experiencing the culture – not to mention one of life’s pleasures. They include authentic culinary experiences which are locally sourced
Leisurely Paced Itineraries
They rarely leave the accommodation before 8.30am and the itineraries are thoughtfully planned to avoid cramming too much into one day. Sometimes you’ll have an afternoon – or even a day – at leisure. And, they promise that we keep long drives to a minimum
