Visit the main highlights of the Isle of Man with a local guide!


This tour aims to show the 'best of' Isle of Man sites in a day. You will be accompanied at all times by myself as guide, visiting the main towns as well as exploring the scenic coast and hills. A wonderful introduction to the island. We shall travel by hired car, with several chances throughout the day to explore villages and historic sites on foot.

Itinerary

Starting from the airport, we drive to the capital Douglas, taking in views of its fine Victorian promenade and unique parliament. We drive to the pretty coastal town of Laxey with its giant water wheel, then to Ramsey in the north, before heading inland enjoying superb mountain scenery (optional climb of Snaefell our highest peak) and the famous TT motorbike course, before descending to a Manx glen and on to enjoy lunch at Peel, an active fishing port with its ancient castle. The afternoon takes us south to the Niarbyl and Port Erin before heading back to the airport.

(The above itinerary can be adjusted to suit your personal requirements. For example you may prefer to start the tour in Douglas. )
