A scenic tour and heritage trail on the Isle of Man

This is a day tour and is intended for those with limited time on the island, and who would like to see as much of the beauty of the island as possible. From Victorian Douglas we will head north along the coast road, stopping at Laxey an old mining town that is home to one of the most spectacular water wheels in the world. We will then travel to Ramsey via the site of the first monastery on the island. If the weather is clear the trip over the mountain road, taking in the famous TT course as we head to Peel. Peel, with its ancient castle, cathedral, marina and old fishing cottages is a delightful place to stop before heading for St Johns and Tynwald Hill a four-tiered hill which is of the Island's most distinctive landmarks l of the Isle . Guests will be picked up on a location of their choice, or cruise ship and returned to a location of their choice.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: A meeting point of the guest choice in Douglas

End location: A location of the guest choice in Douglas

There are often road closures during the summer month for cycle, motor bike and car races, but as the island is small there are networks of smaller roads, so delays may happen, but should not be too great.

A Recent Review of this tour

For me this tour was part sightseeing and part chance to learn more about the Manx branch of my family. Jane struck the perfect balance between sharing her enthusiasm for the history, geography and folklore of this beautiful and unique island and helping me find places where my ancestors had lived, been baptized or were buried. Thanks to Jane I have a better understanding of how my forebears lived and what life might have been like for them living in this lovely place.
