Classic Car Tours

For those who appreciate the difference.

This Is Our Story

Founded by Paul and Linda Trill in 2010, utilising their own extensive experience of car touring in their beloved Jaguar, the original ethos continues today; taking you to quiet backwaters, scenic routes and lesser-known drives and destinations.  

Backwater Classic Car Tours, now a trading name of Albatross Motoring Limited, is part of the Albatross Group Limited, operating since 1985. As such, we have a wealth of experience in marketing, promoting and organising specialist touring holidays worldwide.

"We thoroughly enjoyed the IoM tour. All beautifully planned and executed with super people."

"Another brilliant Scottish tour. Second time around we had a different group, different experiences and enjoyed the second tour as much as the first."

"Excellent accommodation, very good routes, excellent Route Book and Tulips, plus very attentive and good hosts."
