Back Roads Touring
Writer Carole Tidball enjoyed a marvellous escorted tour, aptly named Tuscan Treats and Cinque Terre. Staying off the beaten track, Carole experienced the ‘real’ Italy: singing, cooking, wine and stunning architecture, all within glorious countryside. She had the very best time and is keen to return!
Emerald Princess heads off to Norway and proves she’s a real trooper in a storm or two, riding the waves magnificently. As Princess Cruises’ biggest ship, the cabins, restaurants and bars on offer are superb as is the service. Norway, naturally, never disappoints.

What could be more iconic than the canyons of the American West? Combined with the stunning National Parks in this region, extraordinary landscapes and wildlife too, this is an area in which to take an escorted tour, with all the hassle of travel removed. Nothing could be better.
