You can expect an immersive experience of the German occupation during the Second World War and much more. Marc has insights dating back to ancient history and is able to communicate events in a revealing manner. He brought Jersey to life for us.

Absolutely fantastic. A big thank you Marc for an amazing day. We originally booked this tour before covid 2019 and Marc has been brilliant in re arranging due to cancellations . The whole day was fantastic and Marc’s knowledge was amazing , we visited many of the bunkers which were not open to the public and saw places of history and military which you would never find by yourself . I would highly recommend Marc and his tour for his knowledge of the military and island and time was no rush Thanks again Marc Andy and Baz and the the boys

My husband and I had an excellent day with Marc. On what was beautiful day we saw parts of the island we would never have discovered ourselves, with amazing views around the coastline and within the countryside. Our tour centred around WW2 history and Marc's knowledge is comprehensive as well as being delivered in a relaxed and nicely paced manner. We learned about a range of other aspects of the island, historic, cultural and current, so felt we had a really comprehensive feel for the island by the end of the day. On a practical level Marc's vehicle is very comfortable with screen videos for each passenger. And lunch was excellent. We would highly recommend any tour with Marc.

We thoroughly enjoyed our half day, private tour with History Alive! Our guide Marc was a genial host with an in depth knowledge of the military history of Jersey from prehistoric through to the occupation. He was happy to focus on the eras that interested us and he handled all of our questions in a very informative way.

Whilst Marc can’t claim credit for the sunshine, he can claim credit for a thoroughly excellent day showing us Jersey. We spent the day in his easy going company, learning about the history of the Island, both wartime and peacetime. The minibus was extremely comfortable and overall I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Marc to any visitor or the Island. Thanks for a great day.
