Back-Roads Touring

Small Group Europe & UK tours  

Picture a touring holiday which delves that bit deeper. One that doesn’t simply drop by top sights and major cities – but invites you to see a destination through the eyes of the people who know it best: the locals who call it home. Where journeys are made for absorbing never-to-be-forgotten views, not darting from A to B. And each day ends in a cherry-picked boutique retreat loaded with local charm.

At Back-Roads Touring, we’ve spent over 25 years creating these kinds of small group tours (maximum 18 people). So we know that the best kind of adventure is one that introduces you to immersive experiences and sights that last a lifetime – then gives you the time and space to explore.

The key ingredient? Experienced guides who can turn an exciting getaway into something truly extraordinary. Telling you the stories and secrets behind stately homes as they wander the corridors. Showing you the perfect position to see the sun set over a city skyline. And pointing you towards the exact patch of coastline where you can try oysters, straight off the boat.

And we don’t just offer small group road tours – we also have three fantastic battlefields itineraries, giving you the opportunity to visit graves of loved ones in France. On top of that, our three barge tours on the canals of France with a maximum of just 22 passengers, are sure to be a hit if you’re looking for a leisurely-paced cruise with day trips off the beaten track.

Northumbria Travel offer an EXTRA 5% discount on all tours & cruises in the Back-Roads brochure in addition to the Early Bird savings.
