WhyROD TEST?

Back-Roads Touring have spent over 26 years crafting small group tours that delve a little bit deeper. Tours that don’t simply drop by top sights and major cities but invite you to see a destination through the eyes of the people who know it best: the locals who call it home. Where journeys are made for absorbing never-to-be-forgotten views, not darting from A to B. And each day ends in a cherry-picked boutique retreat loaded with local charm.

They know that the best kind of adventure is one that introduces you to immersive experiences and sights that last a lifetime – then gives you the time and space to explore. With Back-Roads Touring you will travel with small groups of up to 18 and your trip will include luxury mini-coach transportation, scenic back roads, avoiding motorways, leisurely paced itineraries, culinary discoveries, authentic local experiences and handpicked boutique accommodation.

Their award winning tour leaders are committed to delivering the ‘Back-Roads Difference’: whether that be dining with the group, offering the flexibility to change the itinerary, giving personal recommendations for lunch or bringing each destination vividly to life with their insight and knowledge. Their tour leaders are dedicated to delivering a truly authentic, personalised experience.

In 2015 & 2016, Back-Roads Touring won ‘Best Small Coach Holiday Company’ at the British Travel Awards and are nominated again for 2017. They’re especially proud of these awards because these are voted for by their loyal customers.
