About History Alive! & Jersey Military Tours
Marc loves telling the history of his native Jersey. Military and Battlefield History is one speciality as an and Accredited Guide of the International Guild of Battlefield Guides and the other is prehistoric history as a keen amateur archaeologist and geologist. Explore Jersey with Marc and let him bring history alive, whilst enjoying the fabulous Jersey scenery at the same time. Marc will vividly explain that in fact almost everything is connected! Tours are suitable for all ages, and you only need an enquiring mind and a desire to learn a little more about where you are. Away from Jersey, Marc also leads WW1, WW2 and Napoleonic era tours in Europe. Private tours are the best way to explore at your own pace and tailored to your interests. You travel in our own luxury, fully insured and licensed vehicles (7 and 16-seaters). Scheduled tours and larger groups also catered for. Educational school tours, and Battlefield Conceptual Studies for military units, also a speciality.

I very enjoyable history tour of Jersey with the very knowledgeable Marc. We returned with a better understanding of what makes Jersey tick. We felt Marc would make a really great teacher as he made our day out so enjoyable. So much so we would book Marc again on our next visit.

A wonderful chance to take in all aspects of the history of this island. Marc Yates was able to describe so many important scenes of history as we ventured around the island. Truly a worthwhile day with a dedicated guide.

I booked this trip sometime ago and the pre-trip admin was excellent. On the day we were picked up in a comfortable van. The trip was well organised and very interesting it was perfectly tailored by Marc to cover what we had previously discussed. Marc was brilliant and bought along flasks of hot water we provided tea, coffee, milk And biscuits, as we had previously agreed that we did not want to waste time in a Cafe. Marc very kindly dropped us off near to our restaurant when the trip was over. I would thoroughly recommend booking with Marc if you are a visitor or local to Jersey. We certainly enjoyed Marc’s knowledge!

Thank you Jennifer! Always happy to supply a flask and to make teas and coffees. The bonus is when my guests bring home-made biscuits or cake!!

I found History live! by researching on the internet and booked a private tour for 4 retired friends who were interested in WW2. Marc could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable about the island and experiences. As agreed he picked us up from the hotel on time and during the day he drove us to places of interest including 2 of the bunkers where we explored inside whilst he explained in great detail about their history. We also visited The Tunnels as well as other sites with amazing views. The day went very quickly and it was enjoy by all. I would highly recommend as Marc certainly brought history alive.

We had a fabulous tour, Marc picked us up from our hotel and off we went around the island . Stopping at various beach’s to start with fascinating history of protection of the island going back to first recorded times. On wards around to gory castle and another fabulous view. So interesting all around and onto the battlements of the German defence! I could’ve listened all day . Sadly we took this tour on our last day so had a flight to catch and Marc kindly dropped us at the airport. Would definitely recommend!

I am pleased that you enjoyed it. Always happy to drop guests at the airport which solves what to do on the last day of the holiday! Just pack your bags and jump on the tour without worrying about getting back to a hotel and picking up bags and getting to the airport on time. Also happy to pick guests up from the airport and head off on an exploratory tour to help work out where to go later on during your visit. It beats dropping bags off at the hotel and wondering what to do before the room is ready.
