Guernsey Buses and crowding...
In researching my plans to take my crew around Guernsey, our plan had been to use the buses to circle the island. I noticed in my searches here that not much has been said about how crowded these buses get, with one very aptly-named and like well-informed poster (GuernseyCruiser). I'm assuming from their name that they care very much about the Island(s) and are knowledgeable. This has me a little concerned. It sounds from them like every time we step off the bus, we'll be playing "Russian Roulette" as to when we'll be able to get back on and get elsewhere, as many buses are crowded/full.
So I'll ask more widely - have folks on recent St Peter Port cruises (esp on larger ships like Princess Royal-class) tried the buses, and did you find them to be problematic? Are there "tricks", e.g. NOT taking the obvious circumnavigating buses and instead taking lesser-known ones to specific locations?
From GuernseyCruiser, it sounds like the only safe way to use the municipal buses on a port day is to get on one that circles the island (e.g. 91/92) and stay on it for the entire circle so as to avoid getting blocked out of a return. I know our thought had been to get off twice; once at the occupation museum, and once at Fort Hommet (most likely).
