Full day tour of the Isle of Man with a qualified Isle of Man Tour Guide

This tour is for visitors to the Isle of Man who would like a day out seeing as much as possible. Due to time constraints we do not go into sites other than outdoor heritage sites which have no entry charges. Most of the sites can be self guided although I am quite willing to guide in them.

I am a qualified blue badge guide with an operators licence to drive visitors around the island, fully insured with public liability.

Although a set tour has been set up I am quite happy to adjust the tour to suit the visitors needs.
