Call to Book
This spectacular two centre tour begins and ends with overnight stays in the south of England, ensuring your holiday is a relaxing one. Our channel Islands adventure begins in Guernsey, this beautiful island sits in the Bay of St Malo, less than thirty miles from the French coast and is known for its lovely warm climate and peaceful unhurried way of life. From our base in Guernsey, we sail across to Herm, a tiny haven that is just one and a half miles long, less than half a mile wide and known as paradise island. Jersey also offers spectacular beaches and unspoilt villages with the additional option of sampling the vibrant cosmopolitan ambience of its busy towns.
