How We Travel

Our Vehicles


Luxury Mini-Coach

On the vast majority of our tours, we travel by Mercedes mini-coaches equipped with comfortable seats, air conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we’re able to take the scenic route – winding through beautiful countryside to the heart of tiny villages and coastal towns.



Scenic train journeys are included on certain Back-Roads tours in Europe. From rides along the spectacular Black Forest Railway in Germany to explorations of the Alps aboard the Bernina Express, these memorable excursions add an extra touch of excitement to our trips – all at Back-Roads’ signature leisurely pace.


Gulet Boat

In the Bay of Naples, we sail through some of Italy’s most beautiful and historic locations in style: aboard boutique gulet boats. With en-suite air-conditioned cabins and lots of room to relax and unwind, we can take in the mesmerising volcanic landscapes of the Phlegraean Islands from the best possible viewpoint – while enjoying plenty of modern comforts.
