23 May 2024

We were delighted to welcome representatives from Saga Holidays, Ambassador Cruise Line and Hebridean Island Cruises Ltd on a familiarisation trip from 15 - 17 May. 
The group were able to explore our islands with a full itinerary, focussing on shore excursion products, including a visit to our sister island of Herm, land rover island tour, a rib voyage, cider tour, a visit to Hauteville House and a chance to discover Guernsey’s historical attractions. 

Louise Pratt, Marketing Executive from Hebridean, said:

"Everyone we met on the entire trip was so friendly and helpful and passionate about their island. The hotel was extremely welcoming and comfortable and every single mouthful of food we ate was delicious.

I cannot wait to bring our guests back to the Bailiwick next year, we are planning 3 calls or 2-3 days each so they will have plenty of time to explore the delights of your beautiful islands.

Thanks once again for inviting me, it was such a wonderful and worthwhile visit."

Simon Giles, Destination Experience Executive from Saga, said:

"It was a wonderful trip which I found extremely beneficial. Amanda, Soo and Ant were excellent hosts and their knowledge and passion really shone through. It was a varied and interesting itinerary, combined with great food….and the sunshine was the icing on the cake!

Matthew Agg, Head of Destination Experiences at Ambassador, said:

"A huge thankyou to you and everyone who contributed to our wonderful few days in Guernsey. Was a great opportunity to refresh my memory of some of the popular sights, and get a taste of some new experiences that we could introduce.

It really was a very informative and beneficial few days."
