• Back-Roads Touring has announced new tours to North America, with seven itineraries on offer for 2020 travel
• The new North America tours explore California, New England, the Southwest, Mid-Atlantic and Deep South
• Details of all seven North America tours can be found at www.backroadstouring.com/tours/north-america
Small group touring experts Back-Roads Touring have unveiled their most exciting progression yet, announcing a new range of tours through North America.
Travellers can choose from seven new tours, including trips across California, through the North East, and into the Deep South.
The announcement comes following overwhelming positive customer feedback from Back-Roads Touring’s expansion into Asia in 2018, and the increasing popularity of their UK and European tours.
The new itineraries include Classic California Coast, A Taste of Northern California, Canyons of the Southwest, Heart of the Deep South, Historic America: Freedom and the Civil War, and Charming New England – which will be available to experience in the two distinct seasons of summer and fall.
Each tour places focus on exploring the lesser-known side of each destination, inviting guests to see a destination through the eyes of the people who know it best: the locals who call it home.
Showcasing mouth-watering cuisines, impressive historical sites and one-of-a-kind experiences that are usually exclusively reserved for locals, the new North America tours will kick off in major cities, before taking guests to experience sun-soaked wine-paired lunches in the Napa Valley, oyster shucking in Rhode Island, and Jeep tours of the sacred Monument Valley with a local Navajo guide.
Back-Roads Touring General Manager-Global Sales, David Gendle, is thrilled to bring Back-Roads Touring’s US offering to the market.
“We know mature travelers 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,” Mr Gendle said.
“Our tours provide the perfect combination of trusted tour guides, unique experiences 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.”
Some of the highlights of the new tours include taking a breathtaking journey on the historic Mt Washington Cog Railway, enjoying a tantalizing food tour of New Orleans’ iconic French Quarter, and walking in the footsteps of the soldiers who served in the American Civil War at the Gettysburg Battlefield, finishing each day at hand-picked accommodation loaded with character and local charm.
“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,” Mr Gendle said.
“Our experienced guides will help turn your trip to North America into something extraordinary and unexpected, leaving you with unforgettable memories to cherish forever.”
“From revealing little known facts about to the rich history of New Orleans to showing you the perfect position to whale watch in California’s most charming beach towns, Back-Roads tour guides pride themselves on ensuring Back-Roads guests have the most amazing travel experiences.”
The new tours are available to book now and will take to the back-roads of North America from April-October 2020.
