It’s easy. Just rally a group of friends or family (up to seven in Europe, nine in North America) and tell us where and when you’d like to Rendezvous, choosing from thousands of travel dates. We’ll set you up with a dedicated Trip Leader, your own support van and an even more flexible itinerary so you and your companions can do your own thing—while benefiting from all the fun, planning, logistics and legendary service of a core Backroads trip.
You decide what each day holds. Maybe an extra-long ride or hike. A visit to a less-known museum. A round of golf (which you arrange) on a renowned course. Some serious shopping or gallery browsing. A late lunch at the little bistro on the village square. Whatever appeals. Rendezvous makes a Backroads trip even more personal, adapting activities to suit your tastes and adding more chances to follow your own curiosity.
Instant camaraderie! You can always join the full group for a behind-the-scenes tour or chat over drinks. Or some of you can join the flow of the main group while others hit the pool or the spa (or some inescapable work). Mix in as much or as little as you like: that’s the freedom of Rendezvous. Then each night at our handpicked hotel, join your fellow Backroads guests for a memorable meal—or toast them from across the dining room as your gang discusses how the next day will unfold.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
• Rendezvous is not a private or custom trip.
• Your Rendezvous group will have the same meeting and departing locations, hotels, bike staging and special events as the main group.
• For small groups of family or friends traveling together–but not on a Private Trip–Rendezvous helps to lessen any awkward dynamics of a group within a group.
