Backroads Touring reviews

  

At Back-Roads Touring, we’ve spent over 25 years crafting small group holidays that delve a little bit deeper. Our dedicated mini-coaches enable us to travel the back roads, avoiding motorways and taking you to the heart of all our European destinations.

From snowy Stockholm down to sun-baked Essaouira, and from sea-swept Dingle across to majestic Moscow, Back-Roads tours the length and breadth of Europe. Connect with the culture, cuisine and history of the fascinating places you visit on our award-winning tours.
