Gill took the 6 in our group on a 2 hour walking tour of her home town, Guernsey. She is full of stories and information about the German occupation and the history of Guernsey. She knows everything about Guernsey and shows her love. I would readily recommend her to anyone who wants a good tour.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure to show you around St Peter Port and to organise a minivan tour afterwards, you chose a great combination. Come back for longer next time, there is lots more to show you. Gill More

We did a private tour with Gill as there weren't any scheduled group tours - it was well worth the money! She is incredibly knowledgeable and answered all our (many) questions about the history of Guernsey. She also gave us fantastic advice on restaurants and shops! A perfect start to our long weekend in Guernsey.

Many thanks for your feedback. It was a pleasure spending the morning with you and giving you an insight into who we are. Small private tours are always a delight with plenty of time for as many questions as you like. Hope the rest of your pan for the weekend went well.. More

We had only a few hours to visit St Peter Port from a cruise liner. Gill waited patiently as the weather delayed our transfer from the ship, but once ashore Gill was a wonderful guide for our group of 12 - young and older. We were guided through the port and it's fabulous history and learned more in our 2... More

We had to swing into Plan B due to a recent knee surgery and unable to walk. Gill graciously agreed to meet us for lunch instead and she did NOT disappoint. She is a plethora of information and has many family artifacts from World War II. She is very easy going and down to earth and just a lovely person,... More

A group of nine of us spent a hugely informative and thoroughly entertaining couple of hours on a walking tour of St. Peter's Port with Gill. She brought a fascinating and delightfully idiosyncratic place to life. Thoroughly recommended.

We visited St. Peter Port last summer while on a cruise and participated in a walking tour with about 20 people. Gill is personable and knowledgeable about the island and its history. When we booked a British Isles cruise for this summer, we did not hesitate to engage Gill for a private tour for four of us. This time Gill... More

Gill was an outstanding tour guide, who is a native of St Peters Port, and knows all the history of the German Occupation, and really gives you a feeling of what it was like being there during that time. She conveys history and relates that to family friends, and what they experienced. Highly recommend.
