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.

What a lovely way to spend a few hours on a sunny day. We had a day on Sark as part of a cruise we were taking with Princess Cruises My wife isn't too mobile so the bike riding option around the island was a non starter and although needing a push to be seated no problems after that as... More

We were four adults and two young children, so there was no way for us to tour the island except by horse drawn carriage. Although peak season, it was easy to get a carriage in the middle of the day. The young French guide (driver) was informative and helpful. There were several options as to the route, based on where... More

What a wonderful day we had on the Isle of Sark. Got off the ferry, walked through the tunnel an you are met by the 'Toast rack' its well worth the £1.10 to go up the hill an be transported back in time. You then come across the carriage rides, we did the 2 hr which takes in the Seigneurie... More

We spent a day on Sark and a real highlight was the ride on horse and carriage. We had a delightful and informative driver in Victoria and her able companion Frodo. So wonderful to travel at a slow pace and take in the sights and charm of Sark.

We took a day trip from Guernsey to Sark. Boat trip takes about 45 minutes and we had a pleasant journey both ways. Do take the 'toast rack' tractor ride from the harbour as it is a good climb to the top. We decided to take a 2 hour carriage ride and our guide Ina was terrific along with George... More

Booked on line and everything went perfectly. Much better option than turning up and hoping to get a carriage. We opted for a private waggonette and thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely tour of this beautiful island. Cannot think of a better way of taking in the sights and learning of the past. If we return to Sark, we'll book again through... More

Two hours carriage ride was the perfect island orientation. Lap blankets for all was a great touch! Our driver painted the picture of Sark's history and made timely photo op stops - we eased in to the pace and truly loved this!

Check the weather forecast carefully before making the trip to Sark. We went on a perfect day, bright blue skies with a few fair weather clouds, a pleasant temperature for walking and relatively smooth seas for the 45 minute ferry ride from St Peter Port, Guernsey. We were met by a tractor pulled wagon for the ride from the jetty... More
