Like many other tourists we spent only one day on Sark. We took a two hour wagon ride and it was a fabulous way to get a sense of the island and what it has to offer. I do recommend the two hour as I can't imagine missing some of the sights we enjoyed by taking the one hour version.... More

The carriage ride is an excellent way to explore the island at a lovely leisurely pace with knowledgeable and experienced drivers, who welcome questions on Sark as you trundle along. On a hot day it can be very hot in the carriages and on colder days, it can be bloomin cold too, so wear appropriate clothing for the conditions. You... More

Pre booked a 2 hour ride and we were met by Ligita and our horse Alfie. Turned out to be very good and really glad we chose to do this on Sark. Weather was a little damp at first but an umbrella was on hand if needed. En route we stopped at the gardens for a quick look and to... More

This is a wonderful, easy way to see Sark. 10 passengers to a horse a carriage. Two hour trip, but it did make two stops, first at some gardens or you could walk a path to see the "window in the wall" a square hole in the wall overlooking the sea, well worth the walk. 2nd stop was at the... More

The carriage ride took in most of the island, with stops at the best places allowing time to visit the areas. Excellent information given on history and knowledge of the island. Very friendly escort.

Contradictory information about the need or not to book these carriage rides but so glad we took the advice of the concierge at the hotel who told us we needed to. There are basically 3 types of carriages - private ones, public ones (seating maximum of 4 people) and public ones that seem to have room for about 10 people... More

We had the most fantastic day in Sark. My husband and I walked to La Coupee when we arrived. We then met with Alfie and his driver Liguita (sorry, unsure of the spelling) they took us on a tour of the North part of the island. I would highly recommend travelling in a Sark Carriage. It is the best way... More

We have been visiting Sark for 20 years in our yacht and this year really noticed a change in attitude to tourists. At a cafe a woman whom we assume was the owner came out shouting at two children who had the temerity to run over the garden. She was so unpleasant she left them sobbing. The whole family was...
