About the tour

Join your guide for a walk along the seafront in St Peter Port, starting from the Liberation Monument celebrating 50 years of freedom. See where half the population were evacuated from, hear about the monuments to remember the fallen and see where the liberating forces landed after 5 long years of occupation. Hear your guides' personal family accounts of these times. Walk through the fascinating cobbled streets, steps and alleyways and soak up the history. Walk past the medieval harbour and see where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert arrived on a surprise visit. Find out more about these special islands, with their own Parliament and not part of the UK, originally French but now British, a lovely combination of both French and British heritage.

Born and bred in Guernsey, after a career in hospitality I became fascinated by our long and colourful history. Becoming a tour guide was a natural step and I enjoy showing locals and visitors around the island and the smaller Channel Islands near by on foot or in transport.

Loved the movie, loved the tour! Gill gave a wonderful insight to Guernsey and the impact of WWII and German occupation on its residents. Seeing the harbour and hearing the stories makes watching the movie more meaningful.
