Backroads Private Trips: The Sky's the Limit
Berkeley, CA (August 2010) Backroads makes it a cinch for families, friends and colleagues to enjoy the ultimate luxury—a week together having fun and reconnecting on a Private Trip.
From South Africa to South Carolina, from Michelin stars to dining under the stars, Backroads Private Trips are uniquely tailored to match schedules, fitness levels, interests and abilities. Whether it's a dreamy getaway per due on Italy's romantic Amalfi Coast, a girlfriends' wine tasting and spa-hopping extravaganza in California's Wine Country, or a bit of friendly biking competition between colleagues in New Zealand—the possibilities are endless.
Busy travelers need only choose the date and destination, then sit back and relax while Backroads handles all the details. Backroads Private Trip Specialists even send out invitations to group members, taking the organizational pressure off the group organizer. Then the real fun begins as Backroads teams up to add the special touches that travel dreams are made of.
"Travelers want to put their own stamp on their vacations," says Backroads Private Trips Manager Tina DiCello. "For many of our Private Trips guests, our trips are near perfect, but there's a little personal flourish they want to add. For example, Backroads has arranged private biking trips to Europe for a group of investment bankers each fall for the past three years. The group always extends its trips a few more days, to add even more Backroads adventure to their trip."
For 32 years, Backroads has specialized in world-class celebrations, arranging vacations for gatherings of friends, extended families and dozens of businesses, large and small from Newsweek and Gourmet magazines to Young Presidents' Organization and American Express Incentive Services. Backroads has designed 40th birthday celebrations and 25th wedding anniversaries in the San Juan Islands, 50th wedding anniversaries for four generations in the Canadian Rockies, planned a family reunion in Turkey, indulged a top-performing sales staff in the luxuries of France's Loire Valley and hosted friends who gather year after year on Backroads vacations.
The average Private Trip group size ranges from 10-16 guests. But Backroads has also hosted couples and has even designed corporate trips for as many as 200 riders. Whether groups are interested in taking over regular departures or developing itineraries specifically geared for unique reunions and corporate outings, Backroads has the connections to help families, friends and coworkers create unforgettable travel memories.
