Aug 2017: Back-Roads Touring Earlybird Special

 

Thinking about a 2018 UK/Europe holiday? I’ve got a fantastic earlybird special from Back-Roads Touring that is well worth a look!

Back-Roads holidays are a fantastic alternative to the usual large group coach tour. The groups sizes are much smaller (max of 18) and as the name suggests, they avoid the motorways so you get to really explore the winding streets and country by-ways that you’d miss on a huge coach.

I’ve picked out a couple of standout itineraries, but dozens of holidays are included in this earlybird sale, so please give me a call if you'd like more details.

Hurry, the sale ends on 31 August. Contact me today for more information!

 

Kind regards,
Brigitte
