We have fallen in love with Back Roads and here’s why

With over 25 years’ experience in small group and tailor-made tours across the UK and Europe, Back-Roads Touring is truly the original small group touring company.

Having won the 2015 British Travel Award for Best small coach company it is clear that the advantages of small group travel underpins everything they offer – from the type of vehicles, to the places they visit, and the accommodation that they hand select. In many ways, it couldn't be further from a typical coach touring experience.

✓Maximum Group Size of 18
✓Leisurely Paced Itineraries
✓Scenic Back Roads Not Motorways
✓Charming Local Accommodation
✓Authentic Local Experiences
✓Culinary Experiences

A luxury road trip does not get better than this, with a maximum group size of 18 passengers, Back Roads are experts at providing a friendly, relaxed, and a flexible form of touring.

 “Most of our groups travel in purpose-built Mercedes Benz Sprinters that have been converted to the highest of European standards, with many boasting leather seats, fridges and panoramic windows and roofs. Unlike conventional large coaches, our mini-coaches can go almost anywhere a car can go. So as part of a Back-Roads tour you can reach places that conventional coach touring groups can only dream of. From exploring the heart of medieval towns and villages, to enjoying the scenery along narrow, hedge-lined Cornish lanes, you can be assured that Back-Roads Touring will take you beyond the tourist façade to experience an unparalleled balance of renowned and lesser known sites.”

Back-Roads Touring offer a hand-picked portfolio of charming accommodation, intimate properties full of local character. No two hotels are the same and so prepare yourself for trips that include stays in traditional hostelries, medieval and renaissance castles, and fine country estates.

Look out for their Culinary Experiences, Back Roads schedule meals in authentic local locations. Whether it’s lunch at Rick Stein’s iconic Seafood Restaurant, or enjoying a captain’s dinner on our private Croatian yacht, you can be sure that your Back-Roads programme will be a delight for your palate too!.

Keeping to small groups also allows them to set a more relaxed pace - after all, the tour is your holiday so no long drives and no early starts. With plenty of free time you have the chance to see things for yourself, socialise with other members of your group, and to get to know your knowledgeable Back-Roads Tour Leader.
