    Yes, I have travelled with them before and found them to be excellent.

    The tour was well organised and the accommodation each night was in a good location for sight-seeing. The background information provided by the guide before visiting each attraction was appreciated. I would definitely consider doing another Backroads Tour.

    The small group was great, as was the tour guide. A few glitches with accommodation and variations from tour booking, but our tour guide sorted most out. Too many 1 night stays, which was different from booked tour. Chelsea Flower Show was great, but an earlier start would have given us a better view before the crowds.
