Discover places, stories and experiences you might easily miss by hiring a professional English and fluent German-speaking Jersey Tourist Guide.

Join Trudie Hairon-Trox, travel guidebook author and professional Jersey tourist guide with over 30 years of experience in your Jersey discovery.

Half-day, day, and multi-day itineraries can be arranged, as well as guided trips to the other Channel Islands. Individual and group bookings are possible.

As a professional tour guide in Britain, Normandy and Brittany, this led her to a career as a travel guidebook writer for Polyglott and Langenscheidt publishers in Germany. She now works as a freelance travel writer, editor and tourist guide.

Trudie wrote the Channel islands guidebook for Merian books.

Trudie fell in love with Jersey and happily linked her passion for marine biology and local history with her training as a geographer in her work as a Jersey tourist guide.

“Having been tour guiding for Studiosus Reisen in France and working as a travel editor for Langenscheidt/Polyglott, travel has always been a big part of my life. The move from Bavaria to Jersey’s seaside in 2009 wasn’t hard. Since I saw the North Sea coast for the first time at the age of 10, I have felt a big affection for the ocean”.

“Sailing, diving and now cold water swimming … the sea hasn’t lost her fascination. All year through, I am guiding coastal tours for Jersey Walk Adventures, during the summer months on foot and in coaches for international clients”.

Trudie can offer a range of tourist guiding in Jersey. Here are a few examples:

Coastal & Cliff Walks

The experience of guiding the walks to the 18th century Seymour Tower and Icho Towers gave me the idea to guide more adventurously during the extreme spring tides, e.g., to Karame Beacon and combine several towers during the 2 Towers Walk. The adventure of exploring Europe’s largest intertidal coast doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Moonlight walks or beach strolls to see bioluminescent worms will be a completely new and unique experience.

I can also offer more challenging walks along the cliff paths from St Aubin to Corbière lighthouse or along the north coast from L’Etacq to Gorey as half or full-day tours, the other Channel Islands and the Normandy coast on the horizon. Short sections are also suitable for less experienced ramblers.

Food Tours in Jersey

To tickle your taste buds, follow me on an oyster trail through Britain’s largest oyster beds. Foraging walks for sea vegetables or tasty hedgerow herbs are also in my portfolio.


The island’s magic is its intricate mix of nature and history, giving beach and cliff path walks a unique flavour and coach tours many additional highlights. Jersey is now an ‘Aspiring UNESCO Geopark’ and will hopefully achieve full accreditation in 2025/26. A team of guides, including myself, are leading ‘Geowalks’ for Jersey Heritage. They happen in all corners of the island and shed light on how geology, the landscape and climate influenced the character of modern Jersey.

Town Walks

Jersey’s main town, St Helier, offers more than a provincial capital elsewhere. Neolithic culture has been lost and preserved in Celtic and medieval treasures and architectural beauties of the 18th–20th century. The town went through hard times during the Nazi occupation in WWII, but St Helier is now twinned with Bad Wurzach, where English citizens living in Jersey were interned. A gentle 1.5–2.5 hours walk introduces you to all the vibrant colours of St Helier, first and foremost in its Victorian Market Hall.

Coach Tours / Tours by public bus

Whizz round Jersey in a comfortable coach with a couple of stops and lots of informative and entertaining commentary in just half a day. It is possible. But if you definitely want to come back for an extended visit, book a week-long experience where each day can be filled with exciting tours.

For small groups, I have organized a combination of tours by public bus and walks, which are great fun and let you see lots of the island.

​Tour Guiding on Sark, Guernsey, Alderney

Day or multi-day trips, as well as walking tours on the neighbouring islands, all with their quirks and individual beauties.

Tour Planning / Media Research

Having published several travel guide books on the Channel Islands (in German for Merian Publishers), I am familiar with detailed research and can support tour operators when planning for individuals or groups and journalists.
