    4.0 - Good

    This was my first tour with Back-Roads and it was positive overall.. It is beautiful countryside and the pace was good on average (though at times too slow and others too rushed.) Our guide kept telling us he was not allowed to act as a local guide and would send us off with a map. I would have preferred to have a local guide more often. Sometimes our guide could have used the time on the bus better to tell us about the next stop so that we knew what we were seeing. One day we had a local guide for an hour or so in the morning, and another local guide for an hour or so in the afternoon, and the rest of the day was free time with no explanation about the village we were in.
