The sun-kissed Channel Isle
Glorious Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, boasts superb beaches, a delightful bustling capital, and gorgeous scenery. Choose from a range of excellent hotels in St Helier, visit the War Tunnels, and perhaps join us for a taste of local produce on an optional food-lover's tour.
WHAT DOES THE PRICE INCLUDE?
Day One: Fly to Jersey
Fly to Jersey and transfer to your hotel. Check in, then relax or explore St Helier. As well as the tax-free shopping opportunities, you'll find a huge number of cafes, bars and restaurants to tempt you.
Day Two: Included tour of Jersey's coastline
Our included guided tour 'circumnavigates' Jersey's beautiful coastline. Stroll along the pristine sands of St Aubin's Bay, take in the views across to the lighthouse at La Corbiere and follow the west coast up through La Mielle de Morville nature reserve to the rocky cliffs of the north. On the east coast the walls and towers of Mont Orgueil guard the coastline above Gorey harbour and the beachside links of the Royal Jersey Golf Course.
Day Three: Included excursion to the Jersey War Tunnels
On today's fascinating included excursion you'll explore the Jersey War Tunnels. This huge and extraordinary subterranean complex was originally built to house the German Forces who occupied the island in World War Two, and now stands as a memorial to the cost of the invasion and war.
Day Four: Optional zoo excursion
The next optional excursion takes us to the fascinating Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, also known as Jersey Zoo. Learn about the work of its founder Gerald Durrell, whose mission was to create an organisation dedicated to saving species from extinction. Stroll along the lush green walkways where some animals roam freely, while others live in environments painstakingly created to mirror their natural habitats.
Day Five: Included Jersey coastline cruise
Spend your final morning exploring Jersey’s south coast aboard the Jersey Duchess, soaking up the scenery from the water and listening to the fascinating on-board commentary. Along the way you'll see 16th-century Elizabeth Castle, St Aubin’s Bay, Noirmont Point and La Corbiere lighthouse. Keep an eye out for the local dolphins that occasionally follow the boat.
This evening, why not head out into St Helier with some of your new-found friends to relive memories of the last few days?
Day Six: Fly back to your local airport
Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.

Departures in 2018 do not include the boat ride exploring Jersey’s southern coast.

This excursion is not available in 2019.
Hotel transfer times
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately fifteen minutes.
Combining hotel transfers
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
Changes to your hotels
Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.
