Meri S.

Fort-de-France, Martinique

Originally from Finland, I've lived in Martinique since 2009 with my local partner and our two kids.

I have my own tour company and many years experience as a guide on the island.

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 accommodate max. 8 persons and are done using a modern mini-van with AC (Renault Trafic 2015). In case you don't need transportation or have a group bigger/much smaller than 8 persons, just contact to get a special quote.


D'origine finlandaise, j'habite la Martinique depuis 2009 avec mon partenaire local et nos enfants. J'ai une entreprise de visites guidées en minivan et suis une guide experimentée.

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 minivan climatisée (Renault Trafic 2015) et peuvent accueillir jusqu'à 8 personnes. Si vous avez un groupe plus grand/plus petit, merci de me contacter pour un prix spécial.

A Recent Review of this guide

Meri showed us a great time during our five hour tour of the southern end of Martinique. She has a large comfortable van and offered us juice, water, or rum. We visited a pottery village, a museum dedicated to slave history, Diamond Rock, the Cap 100 Memorial, and much more. Meri's knowledge of the island history was extensive. She is funny, personable, and timed everything perfectly. And a great driver over all those hilly curvy roads! 5 stars!
