Backroads Touring reviews


At Back-Roads, we’ve spent over 25 years crafting small group holidays that delve a little bit deeper. Travelling scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, our tours invite you to see each destination through the eyes of the people who know it best: the locals who call it home.


From snowy Stockholm down to sun-baked Essaouira, and from the awe-inspiring temples of Cambodia to picturesque Vietnam, Back-Roads tours showcase the very best that Europe and Asia have to offer.


Experience the Back-Roads difference and connect with the culture, cuisine and history of the fascinating places you visit on our award-winning tours.
