The Blue-Roads Story
Real, meaningful travel is about going deeper. It’s about taking time to explore. It’s about meeting the locals and tasting traditional cuisine. It’s about discovering the beauty that lies off the beaten track.
Here at Blue-Roads, we pride ourselves on delivering truly unique travel experiences through expert local knowledge, carefully curated experiences and hand-picked boutique accommodation.
Inspired by historian and travel writer William Least Heat-Moon, who embarked on a 13,000-mile journey across North America taking only the local roads marked in blue on his map, Blue-Roads specializes in taking passengers on the road less traveled. We call it ‘the Blue-Roads Difference’.
With a maximum of 18 passengers per tour, our guests travel in luxury air-conditioned mini-coaches designed to travel the narrow side streets and back roads that larger tour groups simply can’t reach.
Discover the Blue-Roads Difference
We’re able to deliver authentic local experiences, like taking you to the famous SchafbergBahn cog railway on the Essence of Austria tour, or introducing you to the freshest seafood you’ve ever tasted on the Slow Food Tour of Puglia in Italy.
Each one of our tours is guided by an expert Tour Leader, who immerses the group in the culture, cuisine and history of each unique place we visit on our award-winning tours – whether in Europe, the UK or Asia.
At Blue-Roads, we’re dedicated to providing our guests with the best travel experience possible, and this passion has helped us to achieve several prestigious industry awards. For the past four years in a row, we‘ve won the ‘Best Small Coach Holiday Company’ award at the British Travel Awards – and our commitment to responsible travel has earned us a Silver Green Tourism rating.
