We offer a selection of tours that are different from the larger tour operators. Many are in mini-coaches with 2 - 14 fellow travelers. Our full-size coach tours often offer 4 or 6 nights "Stay-Awhile" at your chosen destination with day tours out to the surrounding countryside. However, new this year, we are also offering Grand British and Grand Europe tours as well as across Europe to Italy, Poland etc. The "difference"" with these may well be the price!

2018 will be our 19th year of offering a series of tours, and ideas for independent travel, throughout Britain, Ireland and continental Europe.

We really do try to offer a selection of tours that are different from the larger tour operators. We either design the tours ourselves, or partner with some excellent, hand-picked operators in the U.K. and Europe. These include Sisley Garden Tours, Cambria Tours in Wales, Rabbies in Scotland & England and Abbey Tours in Ireland. We are particularly proud to be Canadian agents for the eclectic Back Roads Touring Co. of England and you can view all their 50 + itineraries by clicking here, or request a brochure.

November 11th, 2018, will be the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 – “The War to end all Wars” – and we are offering the opportunity to be either in London or Ypres for the commemorative ceremonies. Both tours will also trace Canadian battlefields in both WW1 and WW2. In addition, in July, we have a wonderful tour of Italy. While the focus of this trip is to explore the unique battlefields of Italy, covering the areas Canadian troops fought for 75 years ago, there is an authentic and entirely Italian component to this tour. In addition to viewing the beautiful countryside, you will experience some delicious meals prepared in equally incredible places, and witness the true culture of Italy in a way you have never dreamt possible. As usual, we offer all you need for travelling into and around London, as well as the other great cities of the British Isles and continental Europe. Our B ‘n B and regular tours around England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland continue to sell well and early booking is recommended. For younger clients we now are pleased to offer Topdeck tours of Europe and the world. Topdeck is a sister company of Back Roads Touring specialising in travel for the 18 – 39s.
