Fantastic tour of the occupation history of Jersey. Tour was very detailed, included retelling of local accounts of the occupation, tours of beautifully restored bunkers and gun placements. The history was so vividly presented we wished we could have done a full day tour. Would...More

Marc Yates is very knowledgeable on all things Jersey and beyond. Obviously well rounded in both interests and education, Marc delivered a day of learning and interesting sights. We were 100% correct that a day tour with Marc is the best, safest and most interesting...More

Thank you for your kind review. As advertised, the scheduled Bunker Tour does involve climbing up and down a number of steps and slopes as most of the bunkers are on the coast. I try and accommodate the majority of a mixed group on these...More

Great trip with Marc on the Neolithic Tour. Had no idea there was so much on Jersey. Marc is friendly and very knowledgeable and the vehicle is very comfortable. Perfection would have been an extra coffee stop.

Thanks Sue! Always happy to make the extra stops if that is what my guests want and I am definitely not one to say no to a good cup of tea! Marc

Had a half day tour and it was really interesting. Marc knew his stuff and showed great passion on the subject. Didn’t know anything about WWII and Jersey before the tour so it was fascinating to find out what happened during the war years.
