We were fortunate having Gill Girard lead us on a walking tour through St. Peters Port. She had added an afternoon tour to accomodate our group and met us promptly at the meeting point and off we went. She has lived in Guernsey all her life and shared so much information regarding the history of the island, the occupation and... More

After a bit of confusion over our meeting point, we had a great tour with Gill. A lifelong resident of Guernsey, she provides a great walking tour of the small town of St. Peter Port talking about the tidal range and its influence on the buildings, the centuries old history and the German occupation. As her family lived through the... More

Our Sports & Social club organised a guided walk through the Bluebell Woods with Gill. She was a very informative, passionate guide, and even though I live in Guernsey, it was a great opporunity to find out a bit of the history to the island and take in the stunning views. Gill took us through the cliff paths of Fermain... More

The walking tour we opted for in St. Peter Port is called "Evacuation, Occupation, Liberation and Potato Peel Pie." We met Gill a short walk from the tender pier and she proceeded to give us a two hour tour of her town. The weather was a little chilly but we all managed to get up and down the hills. She... More
