  Dear Traveler,

Fall is an excellent season for carefree travel! The weather is still pleasantly warm, and many other travelers (like families and college kids) have returned home, allowing for more relaxed, intimate access to must-see sites.

Have a look below at some of our autumn trips with space available. If you care to venture across the pond, we've got trips in Tuscany, the Loire Valley, the Czech Republic & Austria, Spain's island of Mallorca and more. Or in our own backyard, you can't go wrong with an adventure amid the canyons of Utah, the brilliant fall foliage of Texas Hill Country or among the vineyards and coastal scenery of northern California. Whichever destination appeals most, count on an extraordinary experience with all the legendary Backroads features: superb routes, talented leaders, distinctive lodging and cuisine, deep local connections, the freedom to do as much or as little as you choose...and the BEST travel companions on the planet!

I hope to cross paths with you this fall...
Tom Hale
