    Our tour guide Isabella was excellent, going way above and beyond to help out and showed us things. The 2nd coach provided was excellent, most of us had two seats to ourselves. The first coach was a bit cramped, with small seats. Overall, i would travel with Backroads again and would certainly recommend it to others.

    Everything was excellent, and exceeded more than what I expected. It made my dream trip to Italy magical, authentic. The tour guide was informative and provided true depiction of the italiano way of life and culture which is what I wanted. This was my first overseas tour. I like the Blackroads style and would do it again and would like to be informed of other tours they offer internationally. I prefer small tour groups. Our group had 15, we all got on exceptionally well and have kept in touch. We are planning an international meet up 2020. The Blackroads tour brought people together from different countries, to meet and make friendships too. It's truly special, significant and LIFE CHANGING.
