    Accommodations, tour guide and driver were top notch. The hours spent on driving and daily tours was just right. It was great to have a free day in the middle. Tour guide was very helpful with suggestions for the free day. The coach was very comfortable. We would book with you again.

    I really enjoyed the itinerary and the flexibility of our trip. The tour leader who was very experienced, assessed the interests of the group, covered everything listed in the original itinerary and also took us to unusual places of particular interest for our group. It is a trip I will always remember.

    Excellent. Exceeded expectations even though it was our 4th Backroads Tour. Hopefully it will not be our last

    I really enjoyed the Back Roads of Wales. The weather was a bit against us but that didn't stop us from having a great time. The places we visited were excellent and I loved the history of Wales. Back roads is definitely the way I want to travel in the future. Smaller group and off the beaten track really appeals to me. This was the second trip I have done with Back Roads and I definitely will do others. Our guide and driver were excellent and attended to everyones needs.
