Benefits of group tours to the Isle of Wight

TTS recommends group tours as a great way to explore the Isle of Wight for the following reasons:

1 | Value for money

Group tours are generally good value for money. For one encompassing price, the group tours to the Isle of Wight begins in London, takes you across the Solent and around the island. The driver waits for you at each destination and takes you to the next highlight. There is no need for public transportation and you probably do not have to walk very far to the car park either. This saves time. At the end of the tour, you return to London. All transportation costs are included in the tour price.

2 | Generally cover major highlights in the Isle of Wight

The tour covers major highlights of the island, with time to explore at each destination. A visit to Osborne House, the former palatial home of Queen Victoria is generally top of the list destination. Also, a visit to Alum Bay, home to the incredible Needles rocks and lighthouse along with other activities to indulge in. However, just note that not all tours will cover these attractions.

A day-long tour will have you visit a selected number of highlights to give you an overview of the island. A longer tour of a few days will inevitably be of more value to you. You will experience more of the island at a steady pace and stay overnight on the island.

Each tour is unique encompassing various destinations. When selecting the tour, ensure that the highlight you wish to experience is included.

3 | Relax and Enjoy

Relax and enjoy while on a pre-planned itinerary. You don’t have to think about hiring a car, driving rules and regulations, sorting out parking or hotel accommodations (if selected). A group tours gives you more time to enjoy and embrace the delightful scenic rugged coast of the Isle and countryside that England is famed for.
