We had high expectations, yet this trip exceeded them. Everything was perfect, the experiences, the guides, the accommodations, the guides. If I could give this trip a "20" (on a scale of 1-10), I would.- Evanston, IL
We had such a great time and this was the first time we had ever done a vacation like this. It was the trip of a lifetime that we cannot stop thinking and talking about. The people we met on the train platform in Florence started out as strangers and ended up as friends that we are planning on seeing again!
This trip was perfect! I have never done a Backroads trip before, but this far exceeded my thoughts about traveling with a group and travel company. As a mother and wife, it was a true gift to be able to have every aspect of my vacation taken care of and organized. The combination of accommodations, cultural experiences, hikes, food, camaraderie and of course leadership made my Backroads experience the most personally wonderful thing I have done for myself in 11 years of motherhood!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!- Rumson, NJ
Our leaders were incredible. They cared for our every need/desire while ensuring our safety. That translated to our group and by the time we were on the bus in Florence (on day 1!) we were like family. That cohesiveness grew during our hikes and experiences. It was truly a magical week! Thank you and special, heartfelt thanks, to our amazing leaders.
This was a fabulous trip, I would definitely do it again! I loved every minute of it, and can see why people fall in love with Tuscany. Thank you Backroads!! Travel with you is the BEST!- Davis, CA
