    Excellent choice of places visited, hotels etc. Tour organisation before start was . good. Disappointed in the drop off in Lisbon. This could be handled better.

    We expected to be shown around with our guide with us leading our visits to the country we were in. On previous tours with Back-Roads the guide stayed with us and took us with him/her to each location. This tour We were left on our own too much to explore on our own in a foreign country so we did not see all what we came for. Us being aged 68 always hard to keep up with the group as the leader walked too fast and we found us being left behind. We did not receive the itenary from Back-Roads before we left New Zealand so arrived into Madrid without an itenery. It was 4 days before we received a full itenary as our leader had expected us to have one. We would have to ask many questions if we were to consider another Back-Roads tour.
