we had a lovely tour of the island with Marc and saw lots of places that we would have missed ourselves. His knowledge of Jerseys history is fantastic, and he really brought the island to life.

We got lots of information about the history of Jersey & the other Channel Islands during our 3 days visit. Marc has excellent knowledge and he is having good presentation skills flavoured with humour. Will recommend warmly his military tours bringing the history alive.
