Guided Adagio Holidays

This holiday includes an active sightseeing programme with unchallenging walks, either city tours or strolls on relatively easy terrain in the surrounding countryside. If in a mountainous area, the walks will be amongst the hills rather than up and down them. Local guides, winery visits, traditional villages and time to pause and watch the locals going about their lives are likely to feature.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Stay in the famous Pomme d’Or Hotel in beautiful St Helier on Jersey
  • Spend an afternoon at the impressive Samares Manor Estate and Botanic Gardens with a delicious afternoon tea
  • Enjoy wine tasting and a guided tour at the picturesque La Mare Wine Estate
  • Visit the Saumarez Manor and enjoy the sub-tropical gardens.
  • Explore Herm Island on a 2 hour private tour.
  • Take a boat to Sark and visit the La Seigneurie Gardens

This holiday is a combination of our 6 night holiday, Gardens of the Channel Islands, and our 6 night holiday, The Cream of Jersey. Only a short flight from England, Guernsey and Jersey are your bases for your holiday.

Guernsey is a small island located approximately 30 miles off the coast of France, forming part of the Channel Islands. It combines a rich and fascinating history with a vibrant modern mix of French and British cultures. 

We stay in the parish of St Martin, only a 10-minute drive from Guernsey’s capital of St Peter Port. St Martin is a quiet rural village, ideally situated for the island’s popular beaches and south coast cliff views. 

Two days of the holiday will be spent on the lesser known islands of Sark and Herm, reachable by boat from St Peter Port. Both islands have so much to offer and have a striking contrast. You will be visiting excellent gardens and have the opportunity to see unusual plants which grow in hotter climates. Cars are banned from both islands however bicycles are used to get around on the larger island of Sark and only quad bikes and tractors are used on Herm for staff and luggage transport. You will walk to many of the gardens taking in the various sights of the different areas of Guernsey and the wildflowers along the way. 

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, located in the Bay of St Malo just 19 miles from the French coast. The island is made up of 12 parishes and has a population of just over 100,000. It is only 5 miles long and 9 miles wide, and its southerly location and sheltered position means that Jersey has a generally temperate climate that is often warmer, with more sunshine hours than you might experience in the other British Isles.

We are based in the picturesque capital of Jersey, St Helier, a complementary blend of history and modern life. St Helier is a pretty parish with easy transport links and a variety of shops and services. We stay in the well-known four star Pomme d’Or, a historic hotel and the location of the annual celebration of the Liberation of Jersey. The balcony was where the Union Jack was raised in 1945 to mark the freedom from German occupation during World War II. The hotel has attracted many famous faces, including Victor Hugo, Dame Vera Lynn and Queen Elizbeth II. 

We have carefully selected your programme for the week so you can get to know Jersey well and visit some of the most popular must-see sites, as well as including some leisurely walks. Jersey has a rich and varied history and we have included visits to many of the museums and sites that will allow you to explore and experience the island’s past and present. 

Our exploration of Jersey includes a visit to Elizabeth Castle and its extensive grounds. We venture back in time during our visit to the extraordinary Jersey War Tunnels before visiting the tranquil picturesque Judith Queree Gardens. We taste delightful wines in the La Mare Wine Estate and a delicious afternoon tea at the Samares Manor Estate, a perfect way to relax, unwind and enjoy beautiful slow-paced Jersey.

We have arranged transport on each day to take you to and from these destinations in both Guernsey and Jersey. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the scenery. All entrance fees to all sites referred to in this itinerary are included.

  • Flights with Aurigny Air from London Gatwick and Southampton to Guernsey
  • Flights with Blue Islands from Jersey to Southampton or British Airways from Jersey to London Gatwick
  • Inter-island flights or ferry (supplement applies)
  • En suite accommodation at four star hotels with breakfast

Trip Information

All the details you need

Holiday Grade

All Adagio holidays are expertly designed to allow you to immerse yourself in the destination. Leisurely exploration of the must-see, as well as lesser known, highlights together with relaxed enjoyment of local food and wines is what we have in mind. 

There may be days of sightseeing on foot around a spectacular city or unchallenging strolls on easy terrain in open countryside interspersed with winery visits, guided tours, boat trips, cafe stops and traditional restaurants. 

Walks & Excursions

We use a mix of privately hired vehicles, taxis, and public transport which gives us some flexibility in our itinerary. We have a wonderful programme of walking, sightseeing and visits planned to let you fully experience the area along with opportunities to relax at our wonderful hotel and enjoy your surroundings.

Local Costs

Holiday Budgeting

Local transport costs, entrance fees and tips to local providers are included in your holiday price. You may wish to budget for any meals and drinks not included in the holiday arrangements, non-included entrance fees and any optional excursions you may choose to participate in locally. A general guideline for lunches and drinks is £10-£20 per person per day.

Local Transport Costs

All local transport costs in conjunction with the advertised activity programme are included in the holiday cost. There may be occasions where additional visits or excursions are added to enrich your experience, these will be paid for locally by you if you choose to participate. Local transport can be a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses and ferries depending on the itinerary.

Money Locally

The currency in Guernsey and Jersey is the pound. They also have its own notes which are at par with the UK pound. Channel Islands notes and coins are not accepted in the UK although they can be reconverted or paid into some UK clearing bank accounts. ATMs are widely accessible in Guernsey and there are none on Sark or Herm, so we advise you to withdraw money before travelling to the islands. ATMs are widely accessible in Jersey.

Tipping

We include tips in the holiday cost and your Adagio Leader will take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff and to local guides and drivers.  If you feel that someone has gone out of their way to make your holiday enjoyable or help you in anyway, please feel free to give a personal tip to the person should you wish. If you are having an independent lunch or other service not included in the holiday arrangements, tipping is at your own discretion.

Your Group

Group Size

We believe that the best things come in small packages, and our Adagio holidays prove just that. We limit our groups to a maximum of 18 persons, plus the Adagio Leader, so that everyone has the opportunity to mix, share their love of travel and return home with new friendships. Small groups also have less detrimental local impact, allows us to use public transport on some days, eat at small local restaurants and, we believe, offers a better experience.

Your Leader

An Adagio Leader will accompany you throughout the holiday. They are all experienced travellers with a love for exploring and will help capture the true essence of the destination with their stories, knowledge and insights.  They are well-organised, pay great attention to detail and enjoy being with people.  They are there to help make your holiday as enjoyable and stress free as possible.

Leaders Evening Briefing

Your Adagio Leader will discuss the programme for the following day with the group at each evening briefing. This will be your opportunity to find out more details and ensure the planned activities suit your walking ability. Also, if you have any questions or concerns on clothing or lunch arrangements, this can be discussed then. If you wish to opt out of the organised group programme, this is fine, just let your Leader know.

Passport Information

General Passport Advice

It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport page (with your photo on). Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents and your return to your home country. Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements. 

General travel and destination advice for UK nationals is available from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk/travel and at www.gov.uk/travelaware.

Entry Requirements in the Channel Islands

You do not need a passport if you are arriving in the Channel Islands direct from the United Kingdom, however, all carriers will require some form of photographic identification. We therefore advise you to bring either your passport or a photocard driving licence. 

If you are arriving in the Channel Islands from outside the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland, irrespective of your nationality, you must have a valid passport.

Meals

We include delicious breakfasts in the hotels plus 11 dinners are taken in our hotels. There are a variety of choices and dishes are freshly made with locally sourced ingredients. Dinner is not included on one evening so you can explore more of St Helier and its wonderful local restaurants and dishes. We include an afternoon tea at Samares Manor and one lunch at the La Mare Wine Esate. Lunches for the remainder of the holiday are not included in the price and normally these can be taken as a picnic or in a restaurant or café. We suggest you allow at least £7 per day for lunches.

Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance

We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance to cover you in the event of eventualities such as unexpected cancellation, accident or illness.

Our Ethos

Responsible Travel

We're committed to operating responsible tours in all our destinations as best we can. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel Ltd’s (inc Adagio) profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. 

In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way.
