Backroads Touring Company

Since 1986 Back-Roads Touring have been running unique small group coach tours which take you off-the-beaten-track. We still have the same touring philosophy as we did back then but now include even more unique experiences and exciting destinations as well as a higher quality accommodation.

Our tours appeal to individuals who enjoy culture, good food, meeting like-minded people, exploring local regions and want a more relaxing style of travel. We welcome first time travellers, however, also find that many of our passengers have travelled with us before and continue to do so.
