BACKROADS OFFERS WALKING TOURS IN ENGLAND AND CALIFORNIA

 BACKROADS OFFERS WALKING TOURS IN ENGLAND AND CALIFORNIA
 BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- After 13 years in the bicycling vacation business, Backroads of Berkeley knows how rewarding it is to travel through an area at a leisurely pace. Now they are expanding their offerings to include walking tours in the Cotswolds of England and in Marin County, Calif.
 Guests will walk between five and 10 miles a day, passing grassy meadows and charming villages along the way. Naturalists, history buffs, and garden lovers will enjoy the chance to take in their surroundings at this leisurely pace. There is plenty of time to stop and browse churchyard gravestones, relax over tea and scones, or explore towering redwood forests.
 The Cotswolds region of England, not far from London, is a picturesque area of rolling meadows, wooded valleys and quaint villages whose thatched cottages are fashioned from Cotswold stone. Accommodations are traditional English inns and country house hotels, where expansive lawns and gardens, luxurious bedrooms, and friendly service are the norm. The food at these elegant country inns is delicious and plentiful.
 In California, a weekend getaway and a five-day trip are offered. On the weekend trip, guests take in the beauty of Point Reyes National Seashore and stay in the elegant Point Reyes Seashore Lodge. On the five-day vacation, travelers walk through Point Reyes, Stinson Beach and Muir Woods, and take a ferry trip across the bay to San Francisco on the last day. Nights are spent in accommodations ranging from the luxurious ocean-view Casa del Mar in Stinson Beach to the cozy English-style Pelican Inn near Muir Beach.
 The trip prices include accommodations and most meals, maps and written directions, and the services of two tour leaders and a support vehicle.
