Had booked (essential) a 2 hour "Gorey at twilight" walk of the town. Arthur was where he said he'd be. Immediately engaging. He is a non assuming, personable, modest, knowledgeable man who appeared to know everybody in town. Everyone who called him out had a smile and a wave for him. We felt like we were their friends too (all of them joked "don't listen to him - he knows nothing") - even the coppers said that. Nothing could be further from the truth. He knows something about everything and you only need to ask him and the facts come to his mind. He thrives and making sure you get what you want. He can personalise the tour and information to your desired passion or career. He is armed with photos (old and new). Due to the town being packed to the hilt with cycle teams (Izumi champs), Arthur had got there early to make sure that we could follow the route or arrange another path.
There is nothing to dislike about this man. He was so modest and self deprecating and you could feel you were with someone who was passionate about the Island and what he does.

Book this man before he decides to hang up his hat. He is a fountain of information. Jersey officials should employ this man full time with the appropriate remuneration (glad we got to employ him for so little a cost yet for such wealth of knowledge)

I travelled as part of a group of students on a research field trip to Jersey. Arthur really is one of the friendliest guys I have ever met and his knowledge of the island is MINDBLOWING. He keeps it interesting, engaging and light hearted. As a Jersey local, the experience feels authentic, and Arthur will go out of his way to answer any questions you have. Would definitely recommend - a lovely gentleman with amazing local knowledge.

What a friendly,knowledgeable gentleman! We did 2 of his walks and loved every second. Good exercise too.. He will walk your legs off if you let him. A fab way to find out Jerseys history from a local.

Arthur made our office outing to Jersey unforgettable. It was all very well organized; from the pick-up at the airport to the hotel, the walk in St Helier, the cycle tour on the island, the organized lunch venues. We can all truely recommend Arthur if you would like to get to know Jersey in a limited period of time.

Many thanks Arthur; we all very much enjoyed your company!

If you are in Jersey and you are looking at the almost endless list of things to do, Arthur's tours are one that should be at the top of your list. The tours are rich in local knowledge so the time passes very quickly and Arthur is very friendly; his stories make the tours a great use of your time in Jersey.
