    5.0 - Excellent

    This was everything I wanted in a smalller, localized tour. Shopping was available, but definitely not the main focus of this tour. Absolutely satisfied with the included tours, the local highlights, the accommodations, upbeat enthusiastic guide and driver. If you want to experience Italy with a degree of safety and comfort, but don't want to remain in cities, this is a realistic way to do that. Cannot praise our guide and driver enough.

    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.

    The leader and driver were fantastic... couldn't have been better! The itinerary was also excellent but was a little crowded several days and might have been spread a little differently. 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. The cooking class was wonderful!! We all worked together to make a delicious Tuscan meal that we now know how to make at home.

    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.

    The places the tour went to were very good but the accommodation on night 3 and 4 was a disgrace. Informed them about our blocked toiled and they did nothing. Truly disgusting having your toilet full of waste. The tour leader was unhelpful and had his favourites which was very annoying.
