What people are saying about Isle of Wight

fantastic crossing to IoW in the morning had a great day their. however on the return the weather had changed and crossing was cancelled. it was just by chance we discovered this qnd only just made it to the catamaran in teaming rain. no transport to get there. on arrival at Portsmouth Dock we had to get a taxi at our own expense back to Southsea to pick up my car. no help or assistance in Portsmouth. I appreciate most of the passengers are commuters and do it every day. but there are tourists who may struggle without assistance. cold, wet maybe a little frightened in an un-familiar city and no idea how to get back to Southsea

It was such a lovely trip. The tour guide Jerry was amazing, everything very well organised, on time. The coach was very comfortable and the day was perfect for a day trip, sunny and pleasant. Thank you very much! I definitely recommend this company for any tour. Many thanks

A fantastic, first time experience on the hovercraft, very quick and smooth. Staff were friendly and very accommodating especially when I needed to leave Isle of Wight earlier than expected. Loved the whole day and the hovercraft crossing was a bonus!!!

Beautiful landscapes, colorful cliffs in Alum Bay - wonders of nature. Perfect guide. You could spend more time on the island hiking or cycling it to discover other equally interesting places

Excellent day out, informative and interesting. The trip itself is well timed and doesn’t feel to rushed considering there is a ferry journey involved.
