Nicky is a mine of information about the history and geology of Jersey and knows how to share it in a really fascinating way. She led a group of us to several locations with a different focus and each was wonderful.

Hi Jude B

Thank you for posting your review about Jersey Uncovered's Nicky and the tour you enjoyed with her. She is our geology oracle and has an incredible depth of knowledge about how the landscape helped shape Jersey's history, from Ice Age times to the present day.

The JU team are pleased you had a great experience, and hope to see you again soon on another one of our tours. If you want to create your own tour, we would be delighted to create an island experience just for you.

With best wishes

Having been to Jersey a few times before and walked around St Helier many times we decided that it would be a good idea to hire a guide this time to show us some of the parts of the town we had missed and tell us about the history of Jersey's capital.
We had never used Jersey uncovered before but the reviews were good and so it seemed worth the gamble. What a great decision!
From the first contact by email, to the follow up call and the actual tour they were a delight to deal with. Our guide (Kary) was great, being so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and making our tour such great fun. We learnt more about St Helier in the 2 hours we spent with her than we had from all the numerous previous trips put together.
The tour with Kary was the highlight of our holiday.

Dear Robin3b

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your Jersey Uncovered tour and guide, Kary. We are delighted that you enjoyed your day. The JU team understand how important it is to respond quickly to calls, emails and requests regarding tours so I'm pleased that you were happy with this.

Engaging a Jersey Uncovered guide when you visit the island ensures you will get the best possible experience. The team are trained and qualified Blue Badge Tourist Guides, the highest guiding qualification in the UK, and as well as having a huge amount of island knowledge, will take clients to the 'must-do' sites as well as those secret corners of Jersey that visitors may ordinarily pass by.

So once again, thank you for your review and if the Jersey Uncovered team can be of assistance in the future, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Best wishes

This was our first guided walk in Jersey. Our guide was Roger Noel. The group was mixed in age with children, parents and older walkers. We set of from the coast in a circular road inland coming back long the coast. Our guide was knowledgeable and presented at the right level for his mixed audience. It was fascinating to have the story of the buildings and things we passed put into historic context: We heard about stories from the German occupation, the Napoleonic defense structures as well as farming and local wildlife and nature. The pace of the walk was well judged and the time flew by - Highly recommended for all the family

Dear C4661ZBpaul

Roger and the Jersey Uncovered team would like to thank you for taking the time to post your review, and we are delighted that you have recommended Roger's 'Towers, Tides and Turnstones' walk. He is a great guide with a wonderful sense of humour and a wealth of island knowledge, and I believe he knows as much about this island's birdlife as is feasibly possible!

This walk, as with all the others that the Jersey Uncovered team lead, aims to appeal to every generation, and to tell Jersey's story, both past and present. The team's tours and walks give visitors to Jersey the opportunity to discover the island, and they also enable locals to rediscover their home.

We hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes

Tracey

Jersey is extremely rich in all kinds of history and the walk: "Neanderthals and a Notorious Beauty" is packed with it. Nigel brings up many fascinating subjects including but not limited to privateers and ship-building, fiefdom, the Jersey Fluke, the Occupation and naval defences, the Jersey Lily, Ice Age geology and the hunting activity of hominids from 250,000 years ago and onwards to homo sapiens. There is a lot to take in and Nigel delivers it with clarity and accuracy. Highly recommended.

Dear Tony B

Thank you for your review of Nigel's 'Neanderthals and a Notorious Beauty' walk and for your recommendation, all much appreciated by Nigel and the rest of the Jersey Uncovered team.

Nigel's walk is definitely bursting with fascinating facts about Jersey's past and present and I hope you agree that the scenery along the way isn't too shabby either!

There is so much more to hear about and see on this island, so please come back soon and try one of our other Jersey adventures.

With best wishes

I participated in this walk last Sunday and it was definitely a highlight of my time in Jersey, we started in the historic harbour town of St Aubin and walked along quiet country lanes passing woods, working farms and fields of Jersey potatoes to the German coastal battery at Noirmont point. Our guide Nigel Diggle was fantastic, he introduced everyone to each other, gave us lots of historical and interesting facts and by the end of the walk we were like a group of old friends. We stopped for a coffee at the Old Portelet Inn before heading to cliffs where Neanderthal man hunted mammoths and rhinos hundreds of thousands of years ago, we returned to St Aubin in time for lunch. Thanks Nigel for a memorable day.

Dear Huw T

Nigel and the rest of the Jersey Uncovered team are delighted that you enjoyed his 'Neanderthals and a Notorious Beauty' walk and thank you for your review. Its great to get feedback from those who have been on a Jersey Uncovered walk or tour, particularly if its positive!

Nigel's walk showcases Jersey's rich history and beautiful coast and countryside, perfectly, something the entire Jersey Uncovered team seek to do. And of course, Jersey has so much to offer. Nigel's gregarious nature also ensures that his walks are fun.

I hope you keep in contact with the friends you made and perhaps the Jersey Uncovered team will see you all again soon.
