Tuk tuk tours for Guernsey 'staycations'


Tuk Tuk Guernsey - a new company which was due to launch for this year's tourist season - is now offering 'Staycation Meal Tours' for local residents.

The small, three-wheeled vehicles are licensed to operate on a specific route around St Peter Port carrying two people at a time.

The company has teamed up with five local businesses along that route: the Fermain Beach Cafe, La Piazza Restaurant, the OGH, Pier17 and the Fermain Valley Hotel. Between them, the eateries will be offering lunch, afternoon tea and dinner with a tuk tuk tour there and back.

The tours can either begin at the Albert Pier or at the passenger's home, if they live within one mile of the licensed route.

Passengers will be taken on a 45 minute scenic tour on the way to their chosen restaurant, left for 90 minutes to enjoy their meal and picked up for a 30 minute tour on the way back. The journey will cost £35 per person.

"It's an exciting, fun way for people to take in some of the wonderful sights that Guernsey has to offer, enjoying a bite to eat along the way," said Tim Bean from Tuk Tuk Guernsey.

The company was granted a licence to operate tours around Town in October last year. It had originally planned to get up and running at the end of March, taking cruise ship passengers and other tourists to see the highlights of St Peter Port, but lockdown restrictions got in the way.

However, with the States of Guernsey encouraging island residents to take a 'staycation' this year, Tuk Tuk Guernsey has been given permission to operate its 'meal tours' for locals.
