Refreshments and drinks

We do stop for refreshments/lunch on this tour. We may stop to get a picnic lunch if the tour schedule means that we are on the beach at lunchtime. The cost of meals, drinks and  refreshments is not included in the price.

Level of Fitness and Health Required

Generally – Good state of fitness is required – You need to be capable of walking on beach amongst rocks and gullies for approximately two hours. Some walking on dirt paths and fields, with some moderate rises and descents.

Entry into Dolmen at La Hougue Bie – low ceiling height at entrance and you will need to crouch down low and walk for several metres to enter.

Clothing, footwear and weather conditions

All of our tours involve getting out of our vehicles and exploring the sites we visit. On this tour in particular, 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 in coastal environments than expected.

On the beach, we will need to walk though sea water pools and streams so you need to wear sturdy footwear which gets wet. Alternatively Wellington boots are satisfactory. BAREFOOT / FLIP FLOPS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE – NO SUITABLE SHOES OR BOOTS AND WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THE TOUR OF THE BEACH AND FORESHORE!

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.
