All of the accommodations were wonderful, except the last at the Frattoria. it had an inconvenient bathroom and was not as friendly. However the food everywhere was delicious.

    We had a terrific time on our Tuscany Treats tour. Our guide and driver were exceptional - they went well above what we expected. I would definitely recommend Back Road tours. Suitable for people over 50.

    I did the Tuscan Treats tour last month and it was fantastic. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The driver was excellent. Most of the accommodation was great. The whole group got on so well. I'd like to use Back Roads again to see Ireland.
