Open Top Car Tours

Type:Guided Tour

Open Top Car at Eary Cushlin


Enjoy the unforgettable experience of an open top car tour. Our carefully planned tours take in all the most scenic locations, beautiful towns and villages and all the significant attractions and historic sites. And we can take you off the beaten track to explore wonderful parts of the Island that most visitors miss. Depending on which tour you select, they last from one and a half hours to a full day.  Prices start from £90 per car. The open top car seats 3 passengers in real comfort and there is a full commentary. Your chauffeur-guide is a TT Marshal and avid bike race fan. He is the author of several guide books on the Isle of Man so knows every corner of the Island. Pick-up is from the Sea Terminal car park or your hotel in Douglas.

Here are our most popular tours . . .

The trip takes in old mining village of Laxey with the famous Lady Isabella Wheel, the Celtic and Viking Crosses of Maughold, through Ramsey to charming village of Bride and the lighthouses at the Point of Ayre – the most northerly spot on the Island, the same distance from Scotland as it is to Douglas. A stop for a herd of unique Loaghtan sheep and return to Douglas over the historic TT Mountain Course.

Tour lasts about 3 hours with 5-6 stops at points of interest; Price £150 per car.

Call of the Wild Tour

The tour is for those who have, perhaps, visited the main attractions of the Island and want to explore off the beaten track.  There is such a variety of breath-taking scenery in the hills and valleys in the centre of the Island that visitors rarely have a chance to see.   Lakes, forests, waterfalls, steep-sided valleys, panoramas over miles and miles of open countryside.

The tour starts high up on Douglas Head where we see the interior of the Island spread out.  The tour drives up the picturesque Baldwin Valley past reservoirs, waterfalls and woodlands, across open moorland with views over the sea to Scotland and Ireland.  It descends through farmland to the charming villages of Kirk Michael and Ballaugh.

The tour then tracks up the remote forested Sulby Glen stopping at the idyllic setting of an extensive reservoir, it passes Snaefell Mountain with the electric railway clinging to the side of the hill.  At the Bungalow we join the TT Course at its highest point (1,400 feet) as it sweeps down towards Douglas with panoramic views to the south.

Tour lasts about 2 hours with stops at points of interest; Price £90 per car.
