    Overpriced for what we got. Included meals were third rate. We saw a LOT of churches and could have done with fewer of them. The craft-like experiences were good but not outstanding. Backroads has an important role in keeping artisan activities alive, but need to work with providers to ensure that they make their talks engaging and the experience wonderful.
