    We enjoyed our tour guide's passion for history ,which helped us to take it all in and our bus driver Chris was such a careful and confident driver that we felt right at ease. We enjoyed making friends and had many laughs on the tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful accommodation and meals and the places we were taken to. We are already singing the praises of Back-Roads , recommending it to our friends and look forward to seeing more country with Back- Roads in the future.

    We did three back-to-back tours (Wonder of Wales, Emerald Isle and Highlights of Britain) and enjoyed them immensely. The highlight was the Emerald Isle tour — our guide and driver worked superbly as a team.

    Tour Leader and Coach Driver were both excellent as was our accommodation. I really enjoyed being out on the back roads of England and Scotland instead of busy motor ways. Every day there were unexpected stops in really interesting places as well as the stated places on the itinerary. I particularly enjoyed the gentle pace of the tour and my 12 companions couldn't have been friendlier. Since my return I have been recommending Back Roads Tours to lots of folk. It would be wonderful, if the opportunity ever arose, to take part in another Tour with the company.
