    We had a wonderful Back-Roads experience on the last Italian Indulgence tour for the year, 2023. Both our guide, Lalla, and our driver were excellent. Couldn't recommend them highly enough.

    BRT, with its 18 seat coach, took us to places the bigger coaches couldn't, be it the tight streets of some of the provincial towns or the tortuous mountain roads. Even though at the start we didn't know any of the other travelers, being a smaller group make the trip more fun as we got all got to know each other quite well. BRT and its local advisors selected older style hotels that suited the tour. We were blessed with a fantastic passionate fun-loving Sicilian tour leader who tried and succeeded to accommodate everyone's minor concerns and with whom we will keep in touch.

    It was very nice and our tour guide Danielle was always helpful and considerate. I was a single person on my own so it made me a bit left out at times. Some days were long before we reached our destination and hotell.
