Day 1 – Sit back, relax and enjoy the journey as we travel overland and by ferry to the Peninsula Hotel on the island of Guernsey.

Day 2 – Today we have arranged for a local guide and coach to collect you from your hotel and whisk you away for a half day’s tour of the idyllic island. A great way to get your baring’s, this fun and energetic tour will provide you with great information about the island, and includes leisurely stops at places of interest.  Later today we travel across to Herm, a tiny island measuring just a mile and a half long, but steeped in history.  Perhaps enjoy a leisurely walk around its scenic coastal paths, the gentle route takes you across the Common (also home to many heritage sites dating back to the 1800s) to the stunning shell beach.

Day 3 – After breakfast either enjoy free time exploring Guernsey at your own pace. Why not hop on a local bus to St Peter Port to do a spot of shopping, or maybe you would prefer to join us on our optional excursion to Sark.  With no cars, the 600 residents get around Sark by bicycle or horse and carriage. Our included 2 hour carriage ride will showcase this truly unique island that no amount of words could do justice.

Day 4 – After breakfast we sail across to Jersey, where we will enjoy another 3-night half board stay at the Merton Hotel.

Day 5 – This morning a local guide and coach will pick us up from our hotel and take us on a fascinating island tour.

Day 6 – The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey is a haven for historians, shopaholics and beach lovers alike. From magnificent castles and museums to fascinating wildlife, you can enjoy exploring Jersey at your own pace today. Some key sights include the Durrell Wildlife Park and the thought-provoking Jersey War Tunnels, a former WWII underground military base

Day 7 – We retrace our footsteps home.
