    Well organised at about the right pace. Accommodation was at the level stated. Destinations overall were interesting with a knowledgeable and engaged guide in Allison. Driver should learn not to smoke in vicinity and when in the company of guests. Extra dinner was a bonus. Have already booked a Back-Roads tour of Italy, next year.

    This was my first experience with Group Touring and I found this Tour was perfect for me Our guide Alison was excellent professional, knowledgeable ,was considerate of diverse needs and a delightful person. The French Riviera and Provence was magnificent and the sites visited were fabulous. The Hotel accommodation was excellent and varied .Meals provided were satisfactory. I would recommend the Rest Day be in the middle of the Tour.. I was fortunate to have a group of fellow travellers who were of a similar age and similar interests and excellent company. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour and Back- Roads Touring
