On Sat July 30 we took a private tour with Kary Day. She picked us up at the dock and took us out of St Helier and told us SO much about the history of the island and of the German occupation. Later we toured St Helier and had some yummy Jersey ice cream!

Great to learn firsthand from a native who loves showing off her country. Would LOVE to come back and see more and will definitely use her again!

Dear sbasbury

Thank you for the glowing review of your recent tour with Kary and I'm so pleased you had a wonderful day. She asked me to say she throughly enjoyed it too. You seemed to have gained a great insight into Jersey's past and present even though your time was limited, and you experienced one of the 'must do' things on any visit to Jersey; you sampled a delicious Jersey ice cream!

Please do come back to Jersey; there is so much more to see and hear about. Kary and the rest of the Jersey Uncovered team look forward to welcoming you in the future.

With best wishes

Tracey

We had a fun and super informative walk with Nigel around St Aubin and to the headlands at Noirmont point. The headlands feature German bunkers and gun emplacements which Nigel told us all about their construction and history. We had a nice visit to the Portelet Inn for refreshments, again another place with history dating back to 1606. We continued on to St Brelaide's bay where Nigel pointed out cave used by Neanderthals. This tour is about 3hrs long and totally worth checking out, my wife and I really enjoyed it!! Nigel you were awesome thanks!

Hi petey708

Your review of Nigel's St Aubin walk is much appreciated by him, and also by the rest of the Jersey Uncovered team, so thank you for taking the time to write it.

I'm delighted that you enjoyed exploring the charming little village of St Aubin and the surrounding cliffs. They are packed with history from many centuries, and give a great overview of this island's fascinating past.

Please join another Jersey Uncovered tour if you visit Jersey again, we would love to see you.

With best wishes,

Tracey

We went on a Sunday morning 3 hour tour with Nigel and learnt more from those 3 hours about not only the history of Jersey but current events too which provided a real 'feel' for the Island and its people. Nigel is highly knowledgeable, great fun and the time flew past incredibly quickly. We will return to the Island and will ensure we go on another Tour with Nigel and would highly recommend others to do so - you won't be disappointed! Many thanks Nigel!

Hi Maria

Thank you on behalf of Nigel and the rest of Jersey Uncovered team for your review. We are very appreciative and so pleased you enjoyed your tour.

We love telling Jersey's story, which not only includes its past but its present and this hopefully helps our visitors get a feel for island life.

It was a pleasure speaking to you when we were arranging your tour and we look forward to welcoming you back on another Jersey Uncovered tour before too long.

With best wishes

Two days ago I did a wonderful tour of Elizabeth Castle in Jersey led by Tracey who was brilliant in taking us through the history of this beautiful castle and bringing to life what it was like to be there from it's initial construction in the 16th century to 1923 when it became a museum. The tour lasted an hour and a quarter. It was a great way of obtaining the background knowledge and history of the castle and then having time afterwards to explore the castle with its guns, bunkers and battlements. I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of the castle and would recommend it to anyone visiting the castle.

Dear irene1956_13

You are very kind to have taken the time to post your review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your tour of Elizabeth Castle and it was a pleasure to show you the site which encapsulates so much of Jersey's history, and to explain how that history fits into the wider historical context.

Jersey Uncovered also offer a 'Castle to Castle' tour which takes in both Elizabeth Castle and the dramatic medieval castle of Mont Orgeuil. This tour gives a great overview of Jersey's past from the sixth century to the Occupation.

Thanks once again for your review and the Jersey Uncovered team look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Best wishes

Great tour of the hills and harbours of St. Helier. Caring and knowledgable. Interpreted the landscape around us with obvious passion and answered questions very well. Highly recommended.

Dear Paul P

Thank you for your recommendation, and for your review of Nigel's St Helier tour. The Jersey Uncovered team value the feedback we receive from those who have been on a one of our tours, and appreciate that you make the time to provide it.

Being a Blue Badge guide means we have to know more than just loads of interesting facts, and your comment about Nigel's caring attitude highlights this (He explained the context of your comment to me). We also need to be able to read a group so we can ensure that everyone has the best experience possible.

So once again, many thanks and we hope to see you again.

With best wishes

Tracey
