Loved this town easy to get there on train only 5 euros return. Beautiful boat trip. No excursion booked

St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands

3 out of 5
Bit disappointed with Guernsey. Would have probably been better with an excursion. Tenders were ok but were thrown around a bit so not good for those who get sea sick
