About the tour

Enjoy the views as you wander through the streets and alleyways of St Peter Port with a chance to see the recently unveiled new Victor Hugo statue. Victor Hugo was a famous and very successful French author who was inspired by Guernsey and at his most prolific whilst here. Probably his most famous work, Les Miserables was completed here. See where he lived, walk in his footsteps, find out about his life and his family.

Meet Gill


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.

Gill does fabulous tours! This tour really showcased the best of an area that many visitors to the UK might not see but that be quickly reached by a short flight from London. This tour has given me yet another area I hope to visit. Thank you!!
