This was a really great way to spend our last evening in Guernsey; not only was the tour guide entertaining, the cider and cheese was fantastic. The farm is beautiful and I would visit again!

Really enjoyed the tour and thought that Craig was brilliant. He made things very interesting and gives us all a good laugh. I would definitely recommend it to locals as well as it gives us something to be proud of.

This tour is worth it's weight in gold! Just do it! Our tour guide, Craig, was friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. The farm is gorgeous and inviting. And the product sampling and charcuterie are more than generous! Definitely buy the Chutneys - they are both delicious!...More

Hi John, Certainly would not like to bore people and keep our guests away from the bit of the Tour they have really come for! Cheers, Craig.

Our guide, Craig, was brilliant. We did the tour in the evening which was beautiful as the sun was going down on the orchard. A lot of all you can drink cider and cheese and chutney avaliable at the end of the tour.

Being a cider drinker all I want now is to find a supplier in the UK as once you have tasted Rocquette Cider you will want it as your usual!
