St Sampsons Guided Tour

Such an interesting tour, Gill had old photos and maps of the area. We learnt about all the industries that grew up and prospered along with how the Braye du Valle was filled in.

Our Sports & Social committee organised a guided walk around St Sampsons Harbour. Gill was very personable and knowledgeable, and made the walk interesting throughout. There was also the added bonus of some Guernsey treats (Cheese & biscuits, Cider and Apple Juice). Would highly recommend her tours.

This guided walk did what all good tours should do. Captivate the audience and show the familiar in a new light. Strongly recommended historic tour. Gill was an informative and welcoming host to our group.

Excellent tour of St Sampsons, made history come alive in front of our eyes! You must go on this tour! Gill took 15 of our group on a 2 hour walking tour of the St Sampsons harbour area of Guernsey. She was full of local knowledge and historical influences.

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.

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.
