Guernsey and The Isle of Sark

Guernsey is a popular destination for tourists wishing to enjoy the mild climate and experience island life without having to travel too far afield.  With natural beauty, historic sites, hidden gardens, art galleries, museums, island hopping, magnificent sunsets and the prettiest of harbour ports –
Guernsey has it all!   Please note our coach cannot travel to Guernsey, so you will have to take your luggage with you on board the ferry.  We will be met by a local coach when we land upon the island.


Monday – Day 1

This morning, we make our way to Poole ferry terminal and take the high speed Condor ferry to Guernsey. Once we arrive in St Peter Port, we will be met by our coach and taken to The Peninsula Hotel our base for 4 nights – upon arrival you may wish to relax alongside the swimming pool prior to dinner.

Tuesday - Day 2

After breakfast we will take the ferry for the 50 minute crossing to the second smallest of the Channel Islands - Sark. There are no cars on Sark, so we will be met at the harbour by a horse drawn carriage that will take us on a 1 hour tour of the island. We will then have some time to explore at leisure before the return crossing back to St Peter Port and Guernsey.

Wednesday - Day 3

This morning, we will board our coach and enjoy a half day guided tour of the island, which will include a trip to The Little Chapel – quite possibly the smallest chapel in the world.  It was modelled in 1914 on the famous grotto and basilica at Lourdes and decorated with seashells, pebbles and broken china!  Our tour will also include a visit to the German built naval observation tower of Pleinmont Point and, in stark contrast, to the fragrant Guernsey Freesia Centre. Our journey will include a mid-tour tea and cake refreshment at the Guernsey Pearl. The guided tour will finish at around 1.00 pm at St Peter Port where we will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the many waterside restaurants before exploring this pretty port town and harbour. We will be returned by coach to our hotel later in the afternoon.

Thursday - Day 4

Today we will enjoy a guided tour of Castle Cornet and its museums.  This 800 year old castle not only offers a fascinating history but also spectacular panoramic views back towards St Peter Port and out across Guernsey’s sister islands. The story of the castle and other aspects of Guernsey’s past can be found in the five museums housed within the Castle.   Then it is onto Sausmarez Manor, a family home, with parts dating back to the 12th Century. The estate houses a curious sculpture park and a large bamboo forest.

Friday - Day 5

After breakfast, we head back to St Peter Port for the return crossing to Poole, upon where your coach will meet you for your return transfer home.

About Our Tours

We have been operating tours and mini breaks around the U.K. and abroad for a number of years, and by far the most popular innovation that we have introduced in recent years, is to offer a virtually door to door service. Picking up as near as practically possible to your home in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire means you don’t have to worry about getting your luggage to the coach, and avoids the additional cost of having to use taxis.

By using our small fleet of mini-buses, we are able to keep the pick-up time to a minimum and get you on your tour coach and on your way as soon as possible. This way your holiday starts on the first morning. Once your holiday is over we will collect you again from the coach park and return you home.
