Driver Guide France and/or Battlefields
About Back-Roads Touring
With over 25 years’ experience in small group and tailor-made tours across the UK and Europe, Back-Roads Touring is truly the original small group touring company.
By limiting our group sizes to a maximum of 18 passengers (22 on our Charming Waterways programme), we are experts at providing a friendly, relaxed, and flexible form of touring. In fact, our belief in the advantages of small group travel underpins everything that we do – from the type of vehicles that we use, to the places we visit, and the accommodation that we hand select. In many ways, it couldn’t be further from a typical coach touring experience.
