    A wonderful week of Tuscan treats is what you will get on this tour. Some days are very full on and I think the tour could be a couple of days longer so it’s not so hectic. Our guide and driver were wonderful and went out of their way to give us lots of very interesting facts and history about the area as well as a few lovely surprises! Highly recommend.

    This trip was amazing, our guide Elena was so imformative and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. The scenery, the food, and also the other travellers on the bus topped off a wonderful tour,. I don’t think I could find the right words to say about this trip, the Unesco sites were so interesting the history behind each town we visited made me realise how important it is to keep these sites safe for future generations. The wine tasting, the cheese tasting and the olive oil tasting was another ‘tick’ the little towns we drove through seeing the ‘real’ Italy. I will definitely do another Back Roads Tour, and I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour. It was great value for money.

    The Tuscan scenery is incredibly beautiful. The tour guide was from the area so could fill us in with many local details. She made every effort to help me as I needed to see a Doctor. We covered a number of beautiful villages, plus some Roman ruins as well.
