Experience the very best of the Channel Islands via public transport and in the company of knowledgeable local guides.

Travelling by rail, ferry and air lets you forget about the stresses of the road on this relaxing nine-night trip.

Having specialised in car-free holidays for a number of years, we’re pleased to add this brand-new trip to our collection of public-transport holidays. Travelling by train, ferry, small boat and air, could there be a more relaxing way to experience the bewitching Channel Islands of Guernsey, Herm, Sark and Alderney? We don’t think so.
