Melanie Cavey is a Jersey born, qualified Bronze Badge guide with a passion for the island and its fascinating history and beautiful environment. Melanie's main aim is always to make Jersey more than 'just an island', by bringing it alive through the stories behind buildings, places and some of the many people who have contributed to our society.
Price: £8 - £11
Melanie has considerable experience as a guide, having worked both locally and abroad on coach or walking tours but for her Jersey is special. In just 9x5 miles, the island has an incredible amount of interest to offer and much of it is unique. As well as being available to lead either bespoke or general island tours, Melanie offers a variety of easy walks in St. Helier and on the south and east coasts. Jersey's position between England and France has meant that its population has faced numerous challenges over the centuries. On these leisurely walks the history of just how islanders have adapted and areas have changed is revealed with many interesting stories told along the way. French speakers are welcome.
