About History Alive! & Jersey Military Tours
History Alive! and Jersey Military Tours aim to combine the traditional personal service of a tour guide with something a little different from other tours. Firstly there are our own comfortable and up to date luxury vehicles. Then we use some technology - moving digital maps so you know where we are and digital photos, charts and maps to enhance your experience. Finally we have a number artefacts and props which you can handle. Military and Battlefield History is a speciality ranging from tours in Jersey of the best preserved German WW2 fortifications in Western Europe, exploring medieval and Napoleonic battlefields and fortifications, to tours further afield in Europe covering many eras. Also why not try an Archaeological / ancient history tour of Jersey's megalithic past. Private tours are the best way to explore at your pace and tailored to your interests. Educational school tours and Military Battlefield Conceptual Studies can also provided. Fully insured and licensed operator.

We were bussed around by Marc, who was brilliant guide. His depth of knowledge is quite astonishing. You also can get into places that are not generally open to the public. If you;re a military history buff, Marc your man, without hesitation.
