Cornish Delight     , NSW, Australia, Sep 2022
I would highly recommend this tour. Even though the name of the tour is Corners of Cornwall, it visits other counties such as Somerset, Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire giving you an overview of each. The famous Wells and Salisbury Cathedrals were highlights. Small group tours are ideal for making new friends, experiencing the country lanes and individual ...read more cultures as well as staying in unique hotels. The standard of the hotels was high, ranging from a historic country hotel in Darmoor to beautiful and stylish hotels overlooking the coastline.

The included meals were excellent; particularly at the Dartmoor Hotel. Not forgetting the opportunity to dine at Rick Stein’s restaurant in Padstow. As a Doc Martin fan I enjoyed visiting Port Isaac and eating the fresh seafood available at most of the coastal towns. Our Tour Guide and Driver were both very professional and entertaining. This tour was my third with Back-Roads and I have already decided on the fourth.
Wonderful tour of Ireland   , WA, Australia, Sep 2022
It was a well organised tour. Everything was fine including optional excursions. The Tour Director Debora was very knowledgeable of Ireland.
Wildflowers tour with AAT Kings     , NSW, Australia, Sep 2022
We had the best 7 days in WA on the wildflowers tour. AAT Kings was superb, comfortable coach and Carolyn was the best tour director we have travelled with - her knowledge was outstanding and her personality is perfect for this occupation.

We saw every wildflower there was to see from the beautiful wreath (see photo) to the orchid. The food was fantastic ...read more but such a shame the 2 breakfasts in Geralton were not so good - too many carbs as it was "grab and go" style as they did not have a chef to cater for the advertised buffet breakfast. One doesn't need a chef to put out some cereals, milk, juice, a couple of toasters, and a urn to have tea or coffee. That was the only disappointment. We had great weather and comfy hotel rooms.
Enchanting Southern Italy     , CA, United States, Sep 2022
The tour was well organized. The tour guide went above and beyond to accommodate everyone on the tour. I would book a Back-Roads tour again.
