Our Sports & Social club organised a guided walk through the Bluebell Woods with Gill.

She was a very informative, passionate guide, and even though I live in Guernsey, it was a great opporunity to find out a bit of the history to the island and take in the stunning views.

Gill took us through the cliff paths of Fermain Valley towards the Bluebell Wood, stopping for some Guernsey cheese, biscuits and Rocquettes cider along the way.

I would definitely recommend this walk to both islanders, and visitors.

The walking tour we opted for in St. Peter Port is called "Evacuation, Occupation, Liberation and Potato Peel Pie." We met Gill a short walk from the tender pier and she proceeded to give us a two hour tour of her town. The weather was a little chilly but we all managed to get up and down the hills. She gave us a wealth of information and we even went into her brother's pub. Who would have imagined how quaint and interesting this port was? Gill just made everything come alive. We were so glad that she was the one who introduced us to this part of the world.

Found Gill via the Internet and I am so pleased we did! Gill taught us more in 2 hours than we could ever have discovered on our whole holiday! A good walking tour with Gill pointing out all building,s of interest and explanation of each one....I am quite overweight and not very fit and I found the walk to be at the right pace and not at all strenuous.....an intersting insight into the years of occupation in Guernsey and Gill is a walking encyclopedia of Guernsey knowledge!! Gill was also able to tell us of a parade being held that afternoon which we would have missed! A good way to learn a lot about Guernsey and Gill is an excellent tour guide. Everyone we met over our 4 day break in Guernsey made us very welcome and they were very helpful. We will be back!

We truly appreciated our walking city tour with Gill and her knowledge transfer. We liked particularly the story about Victor Hugo. Thank you Gill.
