    Well-planned tour with a knowledgeable and personable guide. The travel van was comfortable and ably handled by a professionjal driver. Meals and lodging were quite good, particularly for a tour following less-travelled roads. The back-roads tour format offered engaging scenery and close-up experiences throughout the day, not just focused on the destination. Individual needs were accomodated without hesitation.

    Our guide. Allan, was very informative throughout the tour, about the accommodation, about the areas we were going to visit, and during the walking tours we had. He was very helpful with sorting out any problems that passengers might have had with their luggage, accommodation, getting information about the areas we were travelling to, etc. Carl was a very good driver, had good knowledge of moving safely through back roads in the areas we travelled through. We went through some beautiful countryside, and there was so much to see and do.
