We are a family run business and are committed to operating a Responsible Travel Policy. We aim to provide a quality and positive experience for our customers while contributing to and enhancing the local economy and respecting the environment.

Whilst walking you are taking part in a healthy activity and visiting the area while reducing road congestion. The local authority encourages people to visit the area on foot using public transport in line with their desire to encourage sustainable tourism.

There are a large number of National Trust Properties. The membership and entrance fees are used to restore and conserve our heritage, and provide employment for local people. The Responsible Travel Code of Conduct which you receive with your information pack contains suggestions on how to be an ethical traveler by reducing water usage, recycling and properly disposing of litter, and reducing damage to the environment.

The majority of the accommodations we use are locally owned and operated and use local produce for providing you with breakfast. Wherever possible we use accommodations that are registered with the Green Tourism Business Scheme. There are local shops, pubs and cafes available for lunches and dinners. All these issues make a great difference to the economic welfare of the local community by providing employment.

During the booking process for your vacation we reduce paper usage by corresponding by email wherever possible and only printing correspondence which is legally binding. We recycle our ink cartridges and envelopes, and use low energy light bulbs. Paper which cannot be recycled is shredded and composted.

Whilst on this vacation you will be walking at your own pace in your own group. We restrict group sizes on our self-guided walking vacations to a maximum of 12 to reduce impact on the community.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Visiting the smaller islands of Sark and Herm. Not only was the scenery fabulous but the weather was kind!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Ensure you understand why the people surrounding the walking vacation split the daily distance as they do - i.e fewer daily miles mean more difficult walking. Given the vagaries of the British Summer be prepared for everything - sun blocker and waterproofs !

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes used public transport whenever possible - very convenient bus service in Guernsey. We eat out a few times and used local cafes and bars during the walks. We also purchased locally produced items to bring back - e.g. Guernsey Sweaters.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Very good - hotel was very good for a 2 star, food in hotel very good and reasonable price for dinner in bar (more expensive outside), staff very good attentive and friendly. Taxi company willing to pick us up at end point of daily walk earlier than scheduled.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


The day trip to Herm, the beaches were beautiful and the weather was great for an easy walk round the island.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


In October and early November the islands have a 'Tennerfest': where participating restaurants offer 3 course menus at 10. This makes it very reasonable to eat out and the food is excellent quality.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


The vacation uses a local taxi firm and hotel but otherwise it was not particularly environmentally friendly.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Very enjoyable, locals were very friendly. The hotel room was rather small and noisy from the road outside.
