INSPIRING ESCORTED JOURNEYS

A ‘byroad’ is a road less travelled and this encapsulates the spirit of our tours. Each year Byroads offers a limited number of escorted journeys to some of the world’s most fascinating destinations. You can expect to see all the highlights of the region you have chosen however we also include interesting diversions to really special places we’ve discovered ourselves.

YOU'RE IN GOOD HANDS

YOU'RE IN GOOD HANDS

Steve Mortimer is the owner of Byroads and travels with every group as the tour facilitator. Steve has more than 30 years experience in the travel industry and has travelled to more than 120 countries. In addition, each tour has the services of a highly experienced local guide who knows their country inside out.
SMALL GROUPS

SMALL GROUPS

Our groups are limited to just 16 guests.  That’s large enough to provide some diversity but small enough to feel you are on holiday with a group of friends.  Importantly, by strictly limiting numbers we have access to small boutique hotels, many of which only have 10-15 rooms.
ACCOMMODATION

ACCOMMODATION

At Byroads we carefully select properties that reflect the character of the regions we travel through. Fabulous Moroccan riads, old Maharaja palaces in India, felt ‘gers’ in Mongolia, plus quaint pensions and traditional houses are just some of the places we stay in. Our guests love our accommodation.
GREAT ITINERARIES

GREAT ITINERARIES

An important feature of any Byroad’s tour is the balance of sightseeing and free time. We try to avoid long days leaving you  time to explore on your own and to ‘smell the roses’.  Our itineraries include the highlights plus we have added some  surprise visits and activities that add greatly to your holiday.
TRANSPORTATION

TRANSPORTATION

There is nothing worse than being uncomfortable on your holiday. It’s one of the biggest complaints with many tour operators.  At Byroads we chose our vehicles carefully to ensure that there’s plenty of room to travel in comfort and we don’t overload our vehicles. Your comfort and safety is our priority.
DELICIOUS FOOD

DELICIOUS FOOD

Part of the fun of travel with Byroads is sampling the local cuisine. Our breakfasts are included each day at our hotels whilst for most other meals our guides are on-hand to recommend the best local restaurants and explain the local delicacies of each of the regions we travel to.
