About the tour

Guernsey was heavily defended against the French during the Napoleonic wars, we start this tour with stunning views from a Napoleonic watch house, high above the west coast. A wander through the pine trees before a stroll along the shore line of the beautiful Cobo Bay. See the coast of mirages, named by Victor Hugo while he was here as a political exile and see if you can find the baboon and the camel. The sunsets are beautiful on this west coast so sometimes I will time the walk so that we can watch the setting sun. A chance to see another very different coastline from ones I've shown you on other tours.

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.

As usual, Gill is a fantastic guide. Loved this new tour. She walked down a steep forested hill, up and back an incredibly scenic beach, then up another hill to the end of a point to give us views of the spectacular sunset over the rocks, all while imparting fascinating information about the island.
