Guernsey is renowned for beautiful coastal scenery, wonderful beaches, wild flowers and a delightfully mild climate. There will be two half day excursions and a boat trip to the neighbouring Island of Herm included.
Day 1 A taxi pickup from your home to the coach travelling to Southampton Airport for a morning ﬂight to Guernsey. On arrival you are met by a local coach and transferred to your hotel. Before dinner there will be a welcome drink giving you the chance to meet your fellow guests.
Day 2 After breakfast, a morning excursion of the north and east of the island. You will have the option of returning to the hotel at lunchtime or being dropped in St Peter Port returning independently by bus or a taxi (not included).
Day 3 A free day for your own exploration.
Day 4 A half day excursion to complete your tour of the island. The coach will return you to the hotel at lunchtime or if you prefer you can end the tour in St Peter Port.
Day 5 A free day. You may like to visit Castle Cornet, an ancient Royal Fortress with almost 800 years history. The noon day gun is ﬁred by soldiers in 19th Century costumes.
Day 6 This morning we take a catamaran to the small Island of Herm. There will be time to walk to Shell Beach or relax in the village of Herm Harbour where there are restaurants and a tavern. Depending on tides, there may be some steps to negotiate either on boarding in St Peter Port or on the return journey mid-afternoon.
Day 7 A free day. Your tour escort may be able to arrange an optional visit to the peaceful Island of Sark.
Day 8 You will have some free time in the morning before being transferred by local coach to the airport for an afternoon ﬂight. At Southampton you will be met by a Woods coach and taken back by taxi to your home.
The Peninsula Hotel is a ﬁrm favourite with Woods clients and we have been very fortunate to secure a reservation with no supplement on sole use rooms. The hotel is located on the north west coast in its own grounds on a grassy peninsula leading to a sandy bay. There is a spacious lounge, bar, pitch & putt course and terrace. Bedrooms have TV, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. The hotel has WiFi and a lift. A regular bus service connects you to St Peter Port.
