As our WW1 and WW2 battlefield tours outside of Jersey will generally be bespoke, we will work with you to try and ensure that all of our guests are physically capable of enjoying the sites visited.
Comfort and Refreshment Breaks
There are generally plenty of public toilets around the Island where we can stop. We also stop for refreshments/lunch on full day tours. The cost of refreshments, meals and drinks is not included in the prices. Please feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks.
Level of Fitness and mobility
Generally, to enjoy our tours, you need to have a moderate level of fitness and mobility.
You should be able to climb aboard our vehicles which have up to 3 steps. We have no facilities for guests in wheelchairs aboard the vehicle, but if you can board the vehicle, wheelers and small scooters can be accommodated in the vehicle boot provided they can be dismantled/folded and lifted into the vehicle boot.
On private tours, we will always try and tailor the tours to meet guests’ level of fitness and mobility. Where guests are keen and able, we might be walking on rough paths and slopes, and perhaps a little distance. Where they are not as able, we are still able nonetheless to enjoy the outdoors, whether by restricting the distance walked or trying to stay on stable / level ground and where a wheelchair or scooter will cope.
Clothing, footwear and weather conditions
All of our tours involve getting out of our vehicles and exploring the sites we visit. At some sites, the weather or wind conditions may be such that warm clothing will be desirable and sensible shoes should be worn for walking and, to the extent that we encounter them, climbing and descending steps and rough paths. Even on a sunny day, the air can be quite chilly in the shade or if it clouds over, and it is more noticeable when close to the coast. Equally, in hot and sunny weather, it would be wise to have light clothing, a hat and/or sun-screen to protect against the burning effects of the sun which can be stronger than expected in coastal environments.
Safety and First Aid
The safety and well-being of our guests is paramount to us. Please let us know if you have any allergies or phobias which may be encountered on a tour and we will try and organise / accommodate an alternative for you. First Aid kits are carried on all of our vehicles and Marc is a qualified first-aider.
