Why Back-Roads Touring?

Travelling style

A Back-Roads tour promises a more leisurely style that gives you the freedom of travelling in your own vehicle and as a small group – but without the hassle.

In Asia, we travel by premium mini-coach – offering comfortable seats, air conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. Along the way, your tour leader can offer intriguing insights about the places we see as we travel through each country. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore the sites for yourself.

When we’re not travelling by mini-coach through beautiful scenery and charming villages, we’re getting around like the locals in tuk-tuks, cyclos, oxcarts and paddle steamers.

Leisurely paced itineraries

Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off a bus. We give each stop the attention it deserves and keep long drives to a minimum, giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.

Scenic back road avoiding motorways

Picturesque winding streets. Coastal beauty spots. Breathtaking mountain passes. With comfortable transport that takes us along scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, the journey is as much a part of the adventure as the destination.

Culinary Discoveries

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a different culture is to sample the cuisine. From visits to local producers to food and wine tastings and even cooking lessons, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover new flavours.

Hand-picked boutique accommodation

Whether it’s an eco resort or charming hotel, each day’s journey ends in a boutique property with plenty of character. We opt for accommodation that reflects the personality of the local area, and fits right in with its surroundings.

Authentic local experiences

Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden-gem attractions to local favourites, we take time to seek out authentic experiences that take you to the heart of each spectacular region.

Small groups up to 14

With tour sizes of up to 14 guests, our tour leaders can ensure a more personalised experience. Smaller group sizes also mean we can guarantee our tours will run once we have just four guests booked
