This was our third Backroads trip. It was a 10 day bike trip on the south island of New Zealand. Amazing! Very well organized! Great guides! All the details are carefully taken care of! Even when the unexpected happened (an earthquake!), our guides had a bus replace the train trip that was cancelled (due to damage to the railroad tracks) and it was done quickly. I would recommend Backroads to all my active friends :)

I've taken two Backroads camping trips with my teenage son. It's our summer bonding time and has proved to be a better experience than I could have imagined. Highly recommended. Everything is done for you except riding the bikes! We've been to the San Juan Islands and Yellowstone/Tetons. This year, hopefully Alaska!

I recently had the most amazing experience on the Backroads Singles-Solos Wine Country to San Francisco Biking trip. I'm not a biker but everyone was supportive of each other regardless of experience level. The routes took us through some of the most beautiful roads in the Bay Area. My favorite part was the food as there were freshly-prepared meals three times a day. A+.

Itinerary

Day 1: Explore Tábor, a 15th-century enclave

Sitting atop a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside Stroll the cobbled streets of its lovely Old Town, lined with colorful homes, open-air cafés and artisan vendors  A clever maze of tunnels lies below the streets, which in times of danger were used to shelter its citizens.

Days 2-3: Pedal across the hills of Bohemia, through tranquil farmland and Holašovice

An impeccably preserved World Heritage-site village  Fall in love with Český Krumlov, a charming medieval town with twisting lanes and red-tile roofs where most of the buildings are designated cultural monuments  Behold views of ornate 13th-century Krumlov Hrad, the second-largest castle in the Czech Republic  Dive into Czech history with Helena, our local friend and historian  Gather at a local pub for a pint-sized taste of Czech culture.

Days 4-5: Discover two intriguing countries and cultures in one trip

Czech treasures make way for Austria's beautiful Waldviertel, draped in forests and rolling fields of barley and wheat—a great place to pedal  Bike along the fabled Danube River and through Wachau Valley vineyards  Visit Melk, whose magnificent baroque abbey is perched high on a rocky promontory  A local oenologist invites us over for a private estate tour and tasting of famous Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners.

Day 6: Austria's picture-perfect villages with onion-shaped church steeples

 Soak up the views from the Dürnstein's castle ruins, where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned  Say goodbye in vibrant Vienna, an enchanting place to extend your vacation.
