Your itinerary will include:

Full Day Trip to Sark

Just a 45 minute ferry from Guernsey and you will be stepping back in time experiencing this unique island.  There are no cars allowed on Sark, just walking, bicycles or horse and cart to travel around.  We will have the whole day to walk along parts of the coastline of both Sark and little Sark, with a break for lunch.  You may wish to consider a visit to the Seigneurie gardens or watch chocolate being made at Caragh Chocolates.

Half Day Trip to Herm

Just a 15 minute ferry from Guernsey, and you will arrive at the beautiful paradise of the island of Herm.  No cars, no bicycles, everyone walks to explore this island.  Your guide will provide a private morning tour of the island, after which you may either decide to stay on the island for some relaxation, or return to Guernsey for an afternoon at your leisure.

Half Day tour of St Peter Port

Your guide will meet you at the hotel where we will start our half day walking tour of St Peter Port.  Take in the views from many different locations, including Candie Gardens which also houses the statue of Victor Hugo.  Walk through the cobbled streets of St Peter Port and out to Castle Cornet to view the firing of the noonday cannon, following which you will have a private tour of the Castle.  After the tour has finished, at your leisure you may wish visit the various museums housed inside the Castle.  Within walking distance is Hauteville House, the only house Victor Hugo ever owned.  Bookings for tours must be made in advance, (whilst not included in the holiday price, it is well worth a visit).
