Discover unique culture of Guernsey
3 hours Panoramic tour by car/ van/ coach
This tour is a great introduction to Guernsey and combines stunning scenery, Island culture and history. This journey will take you through the country lanes to the beautiful Little Chapel, a unique miniature church set in the quiet Guernsey countryside. Just 19 by 15 feet in size and decorated with seashells, pebbles and colorful pieces of china, its tiny alcoves barely hold 3 people at any one time. The Little Chapel was built by hand over many years by Brother Deodat of the Christian Brothers.
We will continue our journey through the magical bays and sandy beaches where you will breath the sea air and learn about the from the Second World war. During the first year of occupation, the German forces built fortifications and observation towers on the cliffs and remind us today one of the difficult periods of Island’s life.
After you will be driven along stunning cliff’s with views of unique countryside French-British architecture enjoying picturesque local villages, narrow country lanes, famous Guernsey cows and fields. Passing the luxurious golf courses we will stop in the northern part of the island for a walk along the sandy beach of Pembroke. This extraordinary place can inspire you to create beautiful photos.
In the final part of the panoramic tour you will get acquainted with the industrial part of the island, the history of economic growth of the 19th century, as well as interesting traditions of the modern island life.

Tour start and finish at St. Peter’s port
The tour will take you around old cobbled streets of St. Peter’s port. With its cozy streets and picturesque seafront marina, it is easy to see why St Peter Port is considered one of Europe’s prettiest harbor towns. Guernsey’s capital has been a busy port since Roman times. We’ll visit the main St. Peter’s Cathedral – parish church with beautiful stained glass windows and learn about 1000 years of Guernsey’s history. You will learn about the unusual architecture and the history of the main buildings of the capital and difficult relations between France, the Channel Islands and England. You’ll enjoy gardens, outdoor theatre performances (during the summer), cafes and shops in all a full Guernsey historical experience.
Visiting Castle Cornet
Extra hour (walking tour)
Walk along the waterfront towards the Castle Cornet. St. Peter’s port is hiding centuries of storms and shipwrecks, smugglers and privateers stories. Castle Cornet is one of the famous Guernsey’s symbols. First built in the 13th century, was rebuilt and expanded by Henry VIII and Elizabeth I in the years after 1600 to adapt the change in warfare from bows and arrows to artillery and guns. The walkway which connect Castle Cornet to St. Peter’s port was built in 1860.
