As a tour guide on the Isle of Man it is amazing how many types of tourists we have coming over, from the regular all round tourist to specialist tours such as heritage railways, walking holidays to dark skies visitors

This year has been remarkable for me with Guided Tours of Mann as I have been involved in a new scheme to encourage tourism to the island with one of the big tour providers, Newmarket Holidays.

If you have not yet been to the Isle of Man and have thoughts of coming over but would prefer a package tour, then how about looking at this as you not only get a blue badge guide but also everything else organised from a reputable company.
