    Outstanding tour, well organised, great coach with a friendly safe driver, comfortable accommodation and a tour guide (Edwina, aka Eddi) who was simply the most knowledgeable, sweetest, most helpful & flexible guide we could have wished for. She was simply brilliant and an asset to the company.

    This is our 3rd Back-Roads Tour. We like the small groups, the interesting places we are taken to, the quirky but quality places we stay, and the wonderful guides. Our guide in this tour - Maria, was outstanding.

    We waited awhile before our tour date was confirmed but it was well worth the wait. We were a group of 13 liked minded people of similar age group too. It was not long before we became firm friends. We were met by our guide for the tour, Eddie Pitcher. What a diamond she was. So enthusiastic, knowledgable and guided us around Spain with laughter and sunshine. Our driver Yolanda was much the same. The bus was always full of music, experiences and laughter. The accommodation And breakfasts supplied were excellent. Every day was a surprise, Eddie was full of wonderful history of the area and social information. We were guided by Eddie n Yolanda where to go in our downtime and found fabulous places to visit, eat and drink. I cannot fault this trip. It was a terrific memory !
