    I had a wonderful experience touring Italy, this July 2023, with Backroads. Our tour leader was exceptional in her knowledge of all things around us. Our driver did an amazing job under VERY difficult circumstances. Bravo Luciano. The accommodations were fantastic. The provided meals were delicious.(not to mention the wine tasting🍷 or the ‘two a day’ gelato rule🍦, so we won’t)😁 The scenery as we passed through was astounding, particularly Tuscany and then up into the northern mountains. Breathtaking. Thoroughly enjoyable. Roger.

    Way too much travelling on the bus. Tour Leader spoke to the group like we were children at times which was rather irritating but overall a taste of Italy that makes me want to come back and explore more.

    Getting us to see so much of Italy. Every turn and corner was an amazing experience of different sights, architecture and history. We were in awe of all the different places we visited and the extraordinary and delightful accommodation (Villa's/Castles and lovely hotels). Both our tour guide (Catarina and Fabio) and driver were very knowledgeable and so friendly.
