Small group touring specialist Back-Roads Touring has just launched its 2018 Cruise and Sail brochure which details all of its water-based offerings in one place.
The Cruise and Sail brochure includes tours such as Sail the Bay of Naples, Croatian Islands Sailing, Loire Valley Cruise, Champagne & Great War Cruise and The Burgundy Cruise.
Unlike many other European cruise and sail tour operators, Back-Roads Touring’s water-based offering is exclusively available for small groups of up to 20.
“Rather than catering to large numbers of passengers, our cruise and sail tours are curated for small groups to provide an authentic and personalised experience with a luxurious touch,”Back-Roads Touring Australia and New Zealand country manager Dennis Basham says.
Some of the French barge tours feature a spa, offering the perfect place to sip local champagne while cruising the picturesque canals, and there will also be a bus following the French barge itinerary throughout the journey, allowing customers to explore the back roads of France whenever they hop off the cruise.
Meanwhile, Back-Roads Touring’s sailing tours explore the picturesque coastlines and crystal waters of the Dalmatian Coast on the Croatian Island Sailing tour, or the Italian coastline on the Sail the Bay of Naples tour.
“Our guests will love visiting hidden coves, deserted beaches and local wineries on our Croatia tour, while those on the Sail the Bay of Naples tour can enjoy idyllic islands and an included walking tour of Sorrento.”
Each of the sailing and barge tours include luxury on-board accommodation for the duration of the tour, resulting in a stress-free holiday experience. Most meals are also included in the tour price and will be freshly prepared by a highly acclaimed on-board chef.
“The food offering on many of our barge tours includes delectable traditional French-inspired cuisine, alongside a cheese presentation and tasting. We frequently receive feedback from guests that ‘the food is to die for’, which is real testament to our high quality offering.”
