    This tour was fantastic, the tour guide Annalisa Turturiello went above and beyond expectations and made sure all arrangements were seamless throughout the 8 days. Transportation and Accommodation met our expectations and Annalisa's Italian heritage and knowledge gave us plenty of insight into the areas we visited. Other tour guides to specific sites were also very good. It was a pleasure to meet everyone in our group. Thanks for the memories, and we recommend this tour to everyone! 10/10

    We had a fantastic time exploring southern Italy. Our guide, Michele, was fantastic and the tour showed us all that we could have wanted to see, in a small bus, using backroads. We were based in Minori for 4 nights, which made the tour more enjoyable because we weren’t having to pack up every night. It was also wonderful having a small Group of like minded people to explore with! We would thoroughly recommend Backroads and this tour!

    Great to go to places off the tourist- busy route and hear their story of their produce - limoncello, wine, mozzarella, vegetables used in their restaurants. A wonderful guide Annalisa and Carmine our bus driver ensured an enjoyable and successful tour due to their care and attention.
