Highly recommend this tour. We did a big loop around the island. Lunch in Peel at a pub called The Creek Inn. Recommend scampi and "queenies" in a mornay sauce. Stopped at Niarbyl Beach to see fault line where two plates collide. Rock formations there are fascinating. Don't miss. Toured Manx Aviation Museum. Small museum next to airport. Then off to see Viking sheep (aka Manx Loaghtan sheep). They're a rare breed of sheep native to the Isle of Man. Jane will tailor to your specific interests.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Larry, hope you are safe in these strange times

Very good tour. Jane included everything one would want to see on a day trip around Isle of Man. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She easily adapted the itinerary to the inclement weather. She is a good careful driver who knows her way around. I wouldn't hesitate to r commend Jane H and this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sara, just going through the reviews and never thanked you for your review. We have had such strange weather this year again, so hope that means that we are in for a good summer. with kind regards Jane

Too bad there are only 5 stars!! We would give 6 or more! Jane was absolutely awesome. She loves her home and her passion for it shows through. She is knowledgeable on the history and culture of her home and was so excited to share it with us. She patiently answered our questions and and she learned more about us and out interests, began crafting the comments and landmarks to the things she knew we would like. Highly recommend this tour and this guide. Thank you for making the Isle come alive!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow, what can I say thank you so much for a wonderful review. Perfect visitors to the island, fantastic weather and great to have your company all day. I do hope the rest of your tour and cruise are great and the weather is perfect for your visit. Jane

Jane H was superb! She provided great information on the history, culture and more of the island and its people, taking us to ancient sites and all around the island and she was personable and entertaining as she did so. She went out of her way to help me with searching out my family history. My recommendation for her is the highest one could give!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Elaine, it was wonderful meeting you both and Mannanin was so kind to us that even the sunlight became so bright we could barely see the names on the gravestones. I trust the rest of your journey and research is a great success.

Date: Jun 25/17

We had such a lovely time with Jane who is interesting and extremely knowledgeable about Isle of Man. The day we toured many of the roads were closed for a bicycle race and Jane was able to navigate through and around these closures so we were still able to see all of the sights and learn about the amazing history of the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review, it was wonderful meeting you both and glad that you enjoyed your trip to the island.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary for your feedback, I had a memorable day with you, the exploring and laughter that we shared especially in Maughold Churchyard.

Jane has the option of various tours of the island or a bespoke tour. We took a bespoke tour as we had specific interests on the island. Jane was FANTASTIC. She included then things we were specifically interested in (my ancestors, prehistoric sites) as well as an overview of the island, its geogrpahy, culture and history. During the day as we mentioned other things we were interesteted in Jane made note of these and then emailed additional information the following day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Linda it was lovely to meet you both and I was so glad that apart from one day, you have marvellous weather and hope that you managed to see a lot more of where your family came from.

Jane was a wonderful guide and was able to show us all of the sights during a very busy itinerary. She made sure that all of our needs were taken care of and kept us on schedule. She has a great knowledge of the island and added personal stories to her descriptions of the sights. I would highly recommend her to anyone travelling on the Isle of Man.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much George,your group were such a great group putting up with the 'Bus' and probably the best group I have had all summer.
