Walk down the roads less trodden

SMALL group travel operator Back-Roads Touring has unveiled a new range of adventures in North America, offering seven brand new itineraries across California, New England, the Southwest, Mid-Atlantic and Deep South regions in 2020.

The expansion into North America arrives off the back of a successful entry into Asia in 2018, and the company is focused on placing an emphasis on travelling to less well-known American destinations as well as offering many culinary treats for food and wine lovers along the way.

“We know travellers have an interest in exploring the US in a small group setting, so we’re excited to offer the opportunity to do so with a company they know and trust,” said Back-Roads Touring General Manager-Global Sales, David Gendle.

“Each experience has been carefully curated based on customer and agent feedback, our most popular experiences on other Back-Roads tours and the desire to explore North America at a deeper level, showcasing quintessential North American cuisines, cultures and architectural wonders,” he added.

“Our tours provide the perfect combination of expert commentary from our guides, unique experiences and sites, and opportunities to explore the destination at leisure, offering both our loyal and new customers the experience of a lifetime that they’re sure to love.”

Highlights of the new program of five- to 11-day itineraries include taking a breathtaking train ride on the historic Mt Washington Cog Railway, enjoying a tasty food tour of New Orleans’ iconic French Quarter, and getting a dose of military history by walking in the footsteps of the soldiers who served in the American Civil War at the Gettysburg Battlefield.
