Meri S.

Fort-de-France, Martinique

Originally from Finland, I settled in Martinique in 2009 with my local partner and our daughter.

I'm an experienced freelance guide having worked with several travel agencies.

My aim is to make you discover the best Martinique has to offer and this from an insider's point of view! Having a background in anthropology I'm knowledgeable and passionate about the culture and the history of this unique island.

All my tours are of course fully customizable. In case the tours are not what you're looking for or there's something special you'd be interested in seeing or doing, just let me know and I'll do my best to tailor the perfect tour for you!

The tours can accomodate max. 7 persons and are done using licenced mini-van companies with a dedicated driver. In case you don't need transportation or have a group bigger/much smaller than 7 persons, just contact to get a special quote.


D'origine finlandaise, j'habite la Martinique depuis 2009 avec mon partenaire local et notre fille. Je suis une guide freelance expérimentée travaillant aussi en partenariat avec une agence de voyages locale.

Mon but est de vous faire découvrir le meilleur de la Martinique et cela, d'un point de vue "local". Ayant une formation d'anthropologue je possède de solides connaissances sur la culture et l'histoire de cette île unique.

Tous mes tours sont bien sûr personnalisables. Je peux aussi vous concevoir un tour à la carte.

Les excursions se font en collaboration avec des entreprises de location de minibus et avec un chauffeur dédiée, et peuvent accueillir jusqu'à 7 personnes. Si vous avez un groupe plus grand/plus petit, merci de me contacter pour un prix spécial.

A Recent Review of this guide

There was 8 of us that took the tour with Meri she was wonderful very charming, personable and accommodating. As we drove into the rainforest Meri was very knowledgeable with information. Our day was rainy day but we all made the most of it. She took us to various local places. Depaz rum distillery, local sandwich shop and a black sand beach. Thank you Meri for making this a memorable day! We all enjoyed your company.
