The delightful and quaint islands of Guernsey and Jersey, set in the heart of the English Channel between England and the shores of Normandy offer all the ‘ingredients’ for a perfect holiday. The isolation of these islands certainly creates an aura of independence and individuality. Enjoy four days on the pastoral island of Guernsey which will charm us with its natural beauty discovered along tranquil country lanes, exhilarating cliff top paths and cobblestone streets. The Island of Herm, just a short ferry crossing away from Guernsey (where only locals can use transportation) offers yet one more glimpse of this ‘paradise’. Six full days will be spent exploring Jersey, a treasure trove of imposing castles, merchant houses, Norman-style granite farmhouses, quaint seaside villages, a world famous zoological sanctuary, wartime monuments and so much more! This leisurely tour has been carefully designed to provide all the sightseeing that one might want on the islands with ample free time to use as you please. It will appeal to those who wish to be very active, strolling the many miles of beautiful sandy beaches and take in the refreshing sea air or to hike some of the scenic trails and paths, where breathtaking vistas appear at every turn. It will also appeal to those who prefer to relax and to simply enjoy their surroundings, be it around the bustling harbours, a quaint quiet garden or a beach side park. The choice is yours. This tour is sure to fill quickly – we urge you to enroll today!
