Back-Roads Touring

Back-Roads Touring Co provides very special small group tours off the beaten track, around Europe and the UK.

These exceptional guides, who are handpicked for their superb knowledge of interesting attractions and locations right off the beaten-track, know just the routes and places to really get under the skin of your destination. The groups are never any bigger than 18 people and frequently are much smaller.

Tours take in intimate settings, not reached by larger vehicles, giving you a genuine experience of your host country. And most importantly local, charming accommodation offers a genuine insight into how life is lived with meals eaten in authentic restaurants where you may well be the only tourists.

The tour leaders seek out artisans and craftsmen who will share regional specialities and delicacies with you. And what is so glorious about a Back-Roads Tour is the leisurely pace, you are on holiday, so the tour ensures a comfortable start time and pace each day so you return home, relaxed and interested, not exhausted!

The tours can be taken right across Europe and into Turkey, with some trips crossing several countries or featuring a theme, such as battlefield for the 2014 Commemorations or Christmas markets.
