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. By limiting our group sizes to a maximum of 18 (average group size is 10), we are experts at providing a friendly, relaxed, and flexible form of touring.
In fact, our belief in the advantages of small group travel underpins everything that we do – from the type of vehicles that we use, to the places we visit, and the accommodation that we hand-select. In many ways, it couldn’t be further from a typical coach touring experience.
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, DVD players, fridges and panoramic windows and roofs.
Unlike conventional large coaches, our luxury mini-coaches can go almost anywhere a car can go. This means that a Back-Roads group can reach places that conventional coach touring groups can only dream of.
Whether it is reaching the heart of medieval towns and villages, or enjoying the scenery along narrow, hedge-lined Cornish lanes, you can be assured that Back-Roads Touring will take you beyond the tourist facade of our European destinations and guarantee you an unparalleled balance of renowned and lesser-known sites. So, explore Europe the Back-Roads way this summer and learn that there is no better way to travel.
A Tour for All Seasons
We are delighted to now offer year round departures on some of our most popular tours. As well as introducing more dedicated summer and winter itineraries, we will also be operating our most popular tours throughout the year from November onwards. With seasonally adjusted itineraries, each season will offer a slightly different experience and focus on seasonal menus with locally sourced produce.
