    I loved the tour, and our guide Nic, was fantastic. Unfortunately I found his knowledge overwhelming and was hard to remember and take in everything he told us. But he was a fantastic guide and i would definitely recommend back roads to friends and family. I wl be back in 2 years and will book another tour then.

    Great guides, & drivers, knowledge, friendliness. Terrific accommodation. Small groups is the way to travel now that I have experienced both types of coach travel.
