Enchanting Southern Italy Mary, 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.
Highlights of Puglia and The Southern Riviera Marjorie , TAS, Australia, Sep 2022
This was an amazing trip. I thoroughly enjoyed it all but especially Alberobello and Matera. We had wonderful weather, an excellent driver and a knowledgeable tour director. The hotels were good and I enjoyed the optional experiences and dinners. It was great staying several nights in each place as it gave time to explore and was less tiring. A great ...read more trip.

All-round excellent tour. Fabulous scenery, lovely group, great guide (Jordan), gorgeous characterful hotel (Hotel Adler) and the organisation from Exodus was excellent. Thank you!
Italian Mosiac Bill & Rose, New Zealand, Jul 2022
First time on a coach tour so a bit apprehensive. However we enjoyed it but found it hard work! Early starts and some long days on the coach. The coach was comfortable, fellow travellers a mix but pleasant overall and the driver extremely competent. Highlight was the tour director who was competent, hardworking and charming and ran the tour well. Accommodation ...read more mixed and meals a bit disappointing. Expected more than generic antipasto and pasta. Excursions were good but thought some, ie Lake Lugano, were unnecessary and just there to bolster itinerary. Also 2nd island visit at Lake Maggiore would not have been missed and time instead spent relaxing by pool much appreciated. Booking agency functional but not helpful. Disappointed in their knowledge of tour and we weren’t alerted to things such as hotel transfers as others on our tour were. Final hotel in Rome was changed to a hostel type in the suburbs with no facilities, not even a day time cafe. Which was fine for those leaving early morning but we had an extra day and had been expecting a pool, etc. Generally, a good overview of Italy made special by Gianpiero!
