Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Steve gave us an excellent tour of his beautiful island. He took us to places the tour buses cannot go. He gave us the history of the German occupation and showed before/after pictures. Steve was very knowledgeable and personable. We wished we had more time and could go again.

Thank you so much for your excellent review which is most appreciated. It was a perfect day and we were able to see and visit many places of interest on this beautiful island where I live. Especially ,as you mentioned, where most tour operators and buses don't go. It was great to meet you and thank you again for taking the time to write a review.

Steve was a brilliant and knowledgeable guide using his comfortable and decent car. Steve gave us a full days tour and we saw most of the island visiting many interesting venues. Friendly & relaxingly he took us around and wasn't in your face going at a sensible pace for a 70 year old not great on his legs!! Thanks Steve for making our visit so rewarding - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL John & Linda

I am really pleased that you enjoyed the full day tour of Guernsey. It's surprising how fast the time goes when exploring the island and doing a couple of walkabouts. The day was dry, sunny and plenty of blue sky and the scones, jam and cream we had were delicious. Thank you for you so much for your excellent review which is most appreciated.

Steve picked us up directly from the ferry and escorted us on a bespoke tour of Guernsey. Very knowledgeable regarding the history of the island and we were flooded with interesting facts both current and historic. Occasionally strays slightly above the speed limit when you are almost late for your ferry. 👍

Thank you for your excellent review which is most appreciated. It was a shame that the ferry was late arriving in Guernsey but at least it wasn't cancelled. The weather was kind although not very sunny and we were fine for a couple of walkabouts and were able to experience some great views and photo opportunities. Two miles an hour, over the 35mph speed limit ,is acceptable in order to get back to the ferry in time !

Steve picked us up at the airport, but our flight was late because of weather at Gatwick. He was to take us on a Panoramic Tour of Guernsey, but we hadn’t even had lunch. He waited for us to check into our hotel and get boxed lunch and took us on a terrific tour of the island. He was very knowledgeable about all the aspects of the island. We are still talking about it even after being home for a few weeks. Thank you Steve.

It was unfortunate that your flight was delayed but we were still able to have both a great tour. The weather was dry and lovely blue sky to start with but later it was a bit misty and windy. I am pleased though that you were able to take some good photos whilst on the tour. Thank you for you excellent review which is much appreciated.

Our tour was cut short due to late arrival of ferry but Steve was able to modify the itinerary
so that we were able to have a very good overview of Guernsey in 3 hours. Steve has a great knowledge of the history and culture of Geurnsey and was able to relay that to us in an interesting easy going fashion.

It was like we were with a Guernsey scholar and historian. We spent a half day with Steve and learned so much abut the history of the island, the World War II occupation including the gorgeous sights, the landscape and stories. Steve's passion showers the airways for travelers. Highly recommend his tour.

Steve Martin is a fabulous tour guide. First of all he was punctual.. We had arranged the day tour by email on the computer months in advance and sure enough there he was at our hotel on the day and time we had agreed upon. We didn't really have a plan, but Steve was able to drive us all over the west side of the island giving us the history and taking us places that the crowds were not visiting at least not at the same time we were.

After a few hours, I asked him if he knew of a place where we could get scones with Guernsey cream and jam. In about 5 min, there we were at a little hillside cafe and he bought us all the best cream and jam scones ever.

He also drove us to Victor Hugo's house and made a reservation for us to visit there the following day. All in all I would say that Steve goes above and beyond his role as a tour guide. We wished he could have come with us to Jersey.
Thanks, Steve ,for an awesome day.

We booked Steve for an Island Tour on Sunday 13th Aug 2023. He picked us up from our Hotel and then took us all around the island visiting places of interest to us and some of his favourite spots. We had a fantastic day. Steve was very pleasant and informative with a great knowledge of the islands history. His warm friendly manner soon made us feel relaxed. We navigated the narrow sometimes very narrow roads feeling completely safe in his hands. His vehicle was very comfortable and suited to the twisty lanes etc. We stopped for Coffee and Scones on the way around with plenty of opportunity for comfort breaks. All in all we spent over 5 hours with him and felt it was excellent value for money.

Your excellent review is most appreciated. I am pleased that you enjoyed the tour and it was good to meet you. The weather was dull at the start but was really sunny later which always helps make this small island look even better. There is always plenty to see in Guernsey and I am pleased that you also found it both interesting and informative, Thank you again.

I was very interested in the occupation and fortifications, around the Island, so selected a two-day tour of the island, with various must-see sights, Steve created an itinerary and with a great knowledge of the island and a very pleasant manner, he went beyond my expectations, we visited places, only an experienced guide, would know about, as well as been collected and returned to my Hotel, at the end of each day, Whatever type of Tour, you are interested in, I do not think you would find a better guide.

Steve picked us up at our central hotel and took us on a complete tour of the whole island. His vehicle was very comfortable. He was easy going, informative and knowledgeable. Because of my husband’s interest in the WW2 occupation, and not knowing anything about Guernsey we requested a four hour tour, but three hours probably would have been sufficient. Thanks, Steve for a great tour.
