    The Scottish tour by Back-Roads was excellent. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and handled all our questions with ease. He was also very flexible as at times the weather made us reroute on the fly to get to see the expected sites and stay on time. Our driver was great and worked easily with our guide. The tour bus was comfortable and seemed to be very new, the over night stay locations were also excellent and were more than we expected. We basically had no negatives this trip which was refreshing.

    It was a very well organized trip with a great Tour Director (Katie) and a superb driver (Abby). Tour was good pace and accommodations very good. We would definitely book another Back Roads tour.

    Well organised. Good communication prior to tour. Hand out noted gave basic outline of trip. Guide Ed Asche supplemented these on a daily basis. It would be better if these were provided pre tour so that tour members were better informed.
