    Excellent Back Roads tour of Italy. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Our tour guide Stefano was fanastic, as was our driver Renato.

    Would definitely recommend Backroads to anyone wanting an in-depth experience and am using them again right now to tour Italy and Switzerland. Knowledgeable and friendly guides, careful drivers and just an overall fabulous trip.

    The best holiday i have had, with a smaller group and a Mercedes mini bus we went on roads and places big buses just can't go. As we travelled through small villages and beautiful open space of vineyards hazelnut, cherry, apricot and cherry orchards, around beautiful lakes, over snow capped mountains, to beautiful historic sights. The accommodation was great we stayed in old palaces, monastery converted into a hotel and great resorts. The service and food was great and to our liking. I had to most amazing adventure. Our tour guide Annalissa was so great with all her knowledge and seeking out interesting things to do and see between our itinerary. Our bus driver Renato was a safe and amazing driver. The 12 day italian indulgence tour we went on was fantastic we had the best time ever. In my opinion they go way over the top to make this experience perfect.
