Back-Roads Touring has spent more than 25 years creating authentic small group tours and for two years running, it has won Best Coach Holidays (Small) at the British Travel Awards.
Picture a touring holiday that delves a little bit deeper. One that doesn’t simply drop by top sights and major cities – but invites you to see a destination through the eyes of the locals who call it home. Where journeys are made for absorbing never-to-be-forgotten views, not darting from A to B. Each day ends in a cherry-picked boutique retreat loaded with local charm. Back-Roads Touring specialises in creating this kind of small group tour. They know that the best kind of adventure is one that introduces you to immersive experiences and sights that create memories to last a lifetime – then gives you the time and space to explore the destinations at your leisure.
The key ingredient? Experienced guides who can turn an exciting getaway into something truly extraordinary. Telling you the stories and secrets behind stately homes as you wander the corridors, show you the perfect position to see the sun set over a city skyline or point you towards the exact patch of coastline where you can try oysters, straight off the boat.
Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden gems to local favourites, time is taken to seek out genuine experiences that take you to the heart of each region as well as its culture. And you can be confident that your BackRoads tour is being run responsibly, with sustainable tourism in mind. In fact, their commitment to green practises earned them a Silver Green Tourism rating.
