What our clients are saying about their tours around England
“Amazing Devon and Cornwall”
I arrived at the London Reception Centre to join the tour. I was warmly greeted by the staff and the Tour Director. A great start. A good number also joined there, which was excellent. My previous trips had started badly. A great group of people from several countries including singles travelling. The second two hotels we stayed in weren’t as good and the breakfasts were somewhat lacking. The Hilton in Bristol was wonderful. I had room service one night and it was excellent. All the included ...read more activities were well thought out and excellent. The optional activities were excellent too. The weather was wet and cold during the trip even though it was the beginning of summer. I recommend you take a good waterproof jacket. I was thankful I included my daughter’s at the last minute. The tour director, Maria Holzamer, made sure everyone was included and welcome and her commentary was knowledgeable. She and the coach driver went above and beyond to help one passenger who had mobility issues.
“Wonderful Corners of Cornwell tour”
Wonderful trip, great guide and driver, scenery and little back roads travelled was just like Back-Roads said. Accommodation was excellent. I would use Back-Roads again as our preferred tour company. Tour guide Ian Williams and driver Ken were excellent and have the tours on Youtube.
“A trip that didn’t quite live up to expectations”
This was my second trip with Back-Roads - and, while good, it didn’t match the highlights of the Highlights of Britain tour. Group size of about 15, visits to key places on itinerary were good, though impacted by poor weather (no visit to St Michael’s Mount). The highlights were the visit to Tregothnan Estate and Polperro and lunch in Padstow. Lots of references to TV series locations - Doc Martin, Poldark, Broadchurch and if you’re really into these, this tour would have extra interest. Also ...read more worth noting that the nature of a number of the villages visited (Port Isaac, St Ives and Polperro) means that the coach drops you at the top of a hill and you need to make your way back either walking (Port Isaac) or shuttle bus if available - anyone with mobility issues may need to consider this.
“Corners of Cornwall”
We did enjoy the tour. The group of travellers were all Aussies. This made for good interaction. However, it could have been pleasant with one or two Kiwis to taunt or North Americans to confuse. We were the only couple to comply with the operator's baggage limit. Our smaller bags were on occasion squeezed in, causing some concern when one of our bags was turned upside down. We were pleased with the operator's coach leader and our very competent driver. Eighteen travellers we thought was two too ...read more many. Accommodation and meals were both generally very good. However, the final night hotel was disappointing. Some of the stops on tour were rushed, leaving us disappointed with lack of sufficient time to appreciate them.
