What's so special about our Trip Leaders? Our leaders may know every nook and cranny of the places we visit, but they also know how to have a good time. Their enthusiasm, intelligence, good humor and great taste are infectious, which means our trips feel like roving, delectable celebrations. And Backroads sets a higher standard by having three or four of these remarkable people on every trip.*
*Over 95% of Backroads guests on scheduled trips travel with three Backroads trip leaders or support staff, and two or more vehicles. We even add a fourth leader for meet and move days on some of our most logistically complex trips with the most guests to ensure everyone enjoys the best possible support. On less than 5% of scheduled trips, the number of guests is small enough that we can maintain our trademark high service standards with just two leaders and one van.
