Safehands Travel organised a bespoke adventure to Rajasthan for me.

Kush (my guide) and the driver were wonderful travelling companions, I felt very safe which is so important for a solo female traveller. The driver skilfully negotiated some difficult roads occasionally with great care and professionalism.

Wonderful hotels chosen with care and very appropriate to my preferred taste.

I experience amazing restaurants away from the hotels, in the full confidence that Kush would choose well.

Travelled to villages off the beaten track, all adding to the wonderful experience of Rajasthan. From a camel ride across the desert to see the sunset to the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, an amazing experience I will never forget.

Kush is a great guide and made my adventure complete with his knowledge, great sense of humour and patience. His enthusiasm and love for India and the desire to share his knowledge with others is endless.

Thank you to Rohit and all at Safehands for making my adventure so easy and enjoyable. Great care and attention were taken with the details of the journey with quick response to any questions. Fantastic service from first booking to the end of my journey.

Definitely will return to India and put myself again in the exceptionally capable hands of Rohit and his team, confident in the knowledge that it will be organised personally for me with the greatest of care, professionalism and attention to detail.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

My husband & I were part of a small group of 11 who completed the Garden of England tour in August. A great bunch of people and our guide Tony helped make our journey enjoyable, even making a couple of detours to accommodate guests' requests. Fresh fruit & choices were a nice surprise. Thank you Tony & Backroads.

        About Back-Roads Touring

        Back-Roads Touring, rebranded as Blue-Roads in November 2018 for the North American market, offers boutique small group tours around the world.

        What Makes Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring Stand Out?

        They stick to a very small group size, which allows them to offer truly authentic and local experiences. Their guides have extensive local knowledge and connection, and touring with them is like visiting a good friend who can’t wait to show you the best hidden gems and introduce you to their culture and history.

        Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring?

        Travelers who feel adverse to large groups, and maybe aren’t sure if group travel is for them should definitely take a look through the itineraries offered by Back-Roads. Groups are kept very small - with a max of 18.

        The age range often skews a bit older - catering to active and adventurous 50+ travelers eager for a relaxing yet invigorating trip. However travelers anywhere from the mid 30s and above will enjoy traveling with them. Especially if you’re the type of traveler for whom the more party-focused companies that serve the 18-30 range are not appealing.

        Top Destinations

        Back-Roads offers itineraries around the world, though they are especially well known for UK and Europe travel. You can find trips throughout the UK and Ireland, Europe - including the Nordic and Baltic countries. They also provide some Asia tours, primarily in the southeast (Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia).

        Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring Travel Style

        Groups are small, and the activities range from easy walks or hikes to visits to cultural and historical sites. They offer a few broad themes, such as battlefield tours, culinary tours, sailing tours, history tours, and nature tours.

        Accommodations with Back-Roads are generally in local and traditional hotels or guest houses. These usually have stairs, and are sometimes old buildings - you may encounter funky showers and not have the luxury of an elevator. They advise that you should be able to carry your luggage up and down flights of stairs.

        Why Choose Back-Roads (Blue-Roads) Touring?

        The small group tour experience is at its best with companies like Back-Roads. They provide top notch customer service and guides, dedicated to showing you the best of what a country has to offer. For travelers who want a chance to experience a new place through local eyes, as well as learn the history and enjoy good food and company - within a wide age range - Back-Roads is a great choice.
