    3.5 - Good

    The itinerary was excellent but there was a bit of backtracking wasting time that could well have been spent at some of the stops if done in an efficient order. The MB Minibus was in excellent shape but the seats made airline coach seem quite spacious. Nether knee/foot room nor width for any but the trim of average or less height. 50% of the hotels were not those advertised. It seems Backroads is not adept at booking sufficiently ahead; some locales do not provide them good alternatives and we customers suffer. One hotel was not that advertised and was quite remote from anywhere except walking paths; taxi service was non-existent during parts of the day, and Back Roads made no provision for anything during that day yet they claim it as a touring day; it was a 'down day' for the drivers mandatory day off! Although not Back Roads problem that hotel also had wifi problems making it unusable for most of the stay. The food itself was usually quite good but Back Roads only pays for 2 of 3 courses when dinner is included, and the choices were Very Limited - that is not the hallmark of 'premium'. The guide and driver were both excellent although the guide was relatively new to Cornwall and unfamiliar with the pitfalls surrounding that out of the way hotel that would be very local knowledge. What could have been a great tour was tempered by Back Roads inability to deliver as advertised, the failures all being on head office. How does this rate against other tours? We did 16 days through Scotland with another small group company and it was like clockwork, as advertised, with brilliant meals and we were never down for a day because of drivers having to take days off.

    The itinerary was very good but there was lots of backtracking where the time could otherwise have been welcomed at some of the stops. It should have been a top touring experience BUT Backroads seems to enjoy neglecting to book the advertised hotels and 50% of the hotels were not those advertised, and one was out of the way on a 'down day' for the driver. It was quite a distance from anywhere and we were essentially left to fend for ourselves. Not even taxi availability during parts of the day! That hotel also had wifi problems making the remoteness worse and they seemed blaise about it. Included dinners were only 2 courses not 3 and many were Very Limited selections. The tour guide and driver were both great.
