Boasting over 25 years of experience in small group custom made tours, Back-Roads Touring truly reigns as the original small touring group company. Not only are they experts at providing a relaxed and friendly form of flexible touring, but by limiting their group sizes to only 18 people (with the exception of their Charming Waterways program which accommodates 22), Back-Roads Touring provides a small touring experience unlike any other.
One of the many advantages of touring with Back-Roads is the vehicles they use: purpose-built Mercedes Benz Sprinters which have been converted to meet the highest of European standards. From leather seats to panoramic windows and sunroofs, and even mini fridges, these vehicles are smaller than conventional large coaches. This allows them to travel in almost any place a car could, so from viewing the beauty traveling along the hedge-lined narrow Cornish lanes or the stony roads of old medieval towns, Back-Roads Touring has your best interests and comforts in mind.
Due to their belief in the advantages of small group travel, Back-Roads Touring opens doors in ways that large group travel cannot. You can remove the thoughts of chain hotels from your mind, for Back-Roads offers a plethora of hand-picked Boutique Accommodation options.
