Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Do you accommodate to single travelers?

    The tour operator does accommodate single travellers.

    You are more than welcome to join the group as a single traveller with sole use of your own room. Single rooms in European hotels can have one single bed, although in some hotels single travellers will have a double room for their own use. The single supplement is very reasonable.

  • Is this tour suitable for elderlies?

    This tour is considered a "leisurely paced itinerary. So as long as you are up for a little bit of walking on some of the days Back-Roads would love to have you!
