We were met by Michele and Alfie and set of on our trip. We chose the sights we wanted to see and spent a very enjoyable two hours taking in the views. We would thoroughly recommend this as an incredible way to see a most beautiful island.

We arrived by ferry and took the tractor and trailer up to the village. We hadn't booked in advance but we booked on the spot for a 2 hour trip with Danny Wakley in one of his fleet of carriages. He wasn't due to leave for 20 minutes so we had time for a coffee before boarding for the trip... More

Wonderful leisurely drive in a pony and trap carriage. Very experienced, licensed drivers ( we had Lisa) and well behaved horses (ours was Tipsy). We paid £15 each for a two hour drive and it was well worth it. highlight of the day.

Visited Sark while on holiday in Guernsey. The boat takes about 1 hour and can be a bit bumpy! The island itself is idyllic, with no cars allowed, the only means of transport, if you don't want to walk or cycle, is the horse-drawn carriages which await you on arrival. Sark carriages take you round the island stopping off at... More

We booked the journey, 'bus' up hill and the carriage ride as a package - my advise - book independently. Our driver Michelle saved the day, she was professional and knowledgeable but the travel company over booked and didn't inform her which led to total confusion. She sorted it out And no one should complain (they did), ie don't shoot... More

We do recommend George and Ina. Whilst this is Ina' s first season she is knowledgeable and provides an entertaining day as George pulls your carriage around Little Sark. Lunch at Little Sark was recommended and we crossed the walkway. Not even a shower of rain could dampen our day. However I do hope there are better places to eat... More

A great way to see the island and in relative comfort. If biking it around won't work for you and walking is out of the question - some of the tracks to the various places of interest are deceptively longer than the map can lead you to believe - the carriages are your only option. If visiting from Guernsey or... More

We have been coming to Sark in the Summer, on a day trip from Guernsey, for the past 11 years, and have always enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this lovely island made all the more enjoyable by a 2 hour carriage drive with Charlie and George.We enjoy the running commentary by the drivers who really seem to be enjoying...

What a way to experience a laid back lifestyle. Our driver was an excellent guide and gave us lots of information. It was a 2 hour trip and included a couple of stops at La Seigneurie (gardens) and La Coupee ( bridge joining Sark with Little Sark.) It was a lovely day and a grand way to take photos.
