Our larger tour vehicle is a modern 16 seater Mercedes mini-coach. As you would expect with an up to date tour vehicle, it has all the usual comforts and features – panoramic windows and roof, leather seats and air conditioning.
Uniquely for Jersey, it boasts TV screens, to enhance your tour by being able to show you maps, images and film. Being smaller than the 40 seater coaches or buses which are common to the Island, we can also get to the more secret parts of Jersey which are inaccessible in larger vehicles.
Our second tour vehicle is a luxury 8 seater VW Shuttle, a smaller minibus, air conditioned and again fully equipped with screens in the same way as the mini-coach. This vehicle will be used for tours with smaller groups or for those who want a more intimate private tour.
Whilst both of our tour vehicles are not specially adapted for guests with special needs, provided they can climb two or three steps into the vehicle, we have plenty of room to accommodate wheelchairs and mobility scooters in the boot provided they can be lifted inside.
All in all, our tour vehicles are ideally suited to get you to all the heritage and historical sites around Jersey, and to give you a sightseeing experience unmatched by any other Jersey bus and coach tours.
History Alive! and Jersey Military Tours are fully insured. Our vehicles are registered and inspected as Public Service Vehicles and Marc holds a Public Service Driving Licence in compliance with the law and insurance requirements in order to carry passengers. Travelling in a guide’s vehicle who doesn’t hold a PSV licence means that the guide is driving without a licence and insurance! In order to ensure your safety and protection, consider this when booking your guide and tour!
And finally, you might see me out on a recce or getting supplies for a tour in another vehicle. I might also have some little helpers!!
