She was great and very knowledgeable!! Definitely will recommend Mari.
It was an interesting tour highlighting local products and local history. Unfortunately on Dec 31 establishments and local tourist sites closed early and this was not the best day for this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Angela, thank you for your review! I'm very sorry we didn't get to enter a few of the monuments due to New Years eve - they closed early that day which unfortunately I wasn't aware of. I hope you enjoyed the local tastings though and wish you all the best for the year to come!

Wonderful experience with ample time in Balata Gardens then expert driving over beautiful but challenging roads to see lovely Martinique. Meri did a fabulous job.

We had a wonderful time/tour with Meri up in the North of Martinique. We were very lucky with the weather so we could enjoy the places at the best. She is a very nice and talkative person and she knows a lot about the History and the flora of the island. We really recommend her! Thanks a lot again Meri!

Meri was a wonderful tour guide for our girls trip. She customized our tour of northern Martinique to suit our interests as well as tossed in many spectacular views of the rain forest and mountains. We had a great time exploring the jungle and hiking Mt. Pelee. Meri is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We highly recommend booking a tour with Meri!
Kristin SpeersUnited States
Meri was a wonderful tour guide for our girls trip. She customized our tour of southern Martinique to suit our interests as well as tossed in many spectacular views of the coast and local architecture. Our 8.5 hour tour flew by as she shared her knowledge of the island's past history and present day stories. We also booked a second day of touring with her to explore the northern part of the island. We had a great time exploring the jungle and hiking Mt. Pelee.

David PellecchiaUnited States
Meri was wonderful. We connected with her through the tours by locals site and gave her an ambitious list of places and experiences we wanted to see in a single day. She took our list and put together the best of them that would fit. We also had special circumstances as we arrived by sailing vessel and needed to be picked up and dropped off at the anchorage. It all went so well. Meri was so knowledgeable about the loca culture, history, and the botanical diversity. Merci beaucoup, Meri!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David for this lovely review! It was a pleasure to meet your group and spend a fun day discovering the island together! Safe sailings and spasiba :)
Meri exceeded ALL of our expectations; absolutely a 5 star experience. The vehicle was clean, comfortable, and all safety aspects were top notch. She is warm, extremely knowledgeable, gracious and accommodated our preferences throughout the tour. We saw the spectacular lush north area, learned about the tragedy of Mount Pele, dined on fresh authentic local cuisine, and had interesting visits to sites related to local agriculture, history, culture etc. Meri is an outstanding guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Liz, thank you so much for this review! Very happy that you liked the tour. I had so much fun showing the island to you and Peggy and also enjoyed our conversations. All the best to you both and hope to see you again!

Meri was very good responding via email to my questions regarding a meeting place, and was very flexible in adjusting the tour to our interests. I highly recommend her walking tour of Fort de France.

Meri was an exceptional guide! Her communication was exemplary throughout the booking and process. She used the fact we were traveling with two small children and designed the most family friendly adventure. Despite the rain we had a wonderful time - she provided us umbrellas and we were in a rainforest, after all! I highly recommend using Meri if you want the very best Martinique experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Matt, really appreciate your kind feedback! Your kids were adorable and it was a fun day visiting the zoo and the north despite the weather. All the best to the family and hope to see you again perhaps!
Barbara EisenbergUnited States
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!
Meri was a fantastic tour guide, very informative, friendly and very accommodating. She brought us to many beautiful spots which we will remember for a very long time. Thank you Meri.
Dannea DeLisserUnited States
Meri was wonderful and I would highly recommend taking one of her tours. She was very prompt and when we had a little rain she was quick on her feet to fill in the missed stops with other fun and interesting sites. She's very knowledgeable of the island and told us stories along the way. We had just enough time at each stop. Great tour and an amazing guide.
Lesley HarmanUnited States
Meri is an incredibly informative and fun introduction to Martinique. She's perfect for local and tourists alike, especially those who love to get off the beaten path. Meri is well versed in the local culture and community, both historical and contemporary. She is very personable, easy talk with, and quick to adapt to your likes/needs. Meri's tour quickly became a highlight of my trip, she made everything so exciting and fun. I couldn't recommend her enough!
Meri was on time for pick up, very knowledgeable in the history of the area and the rum distillery. Her van was very comfortable for travelling. Meri was very personable and the group enjoyed Meri as our tour guide. We definitely will recommend her to friends traveling to Martinique.
Phillip CushmanUnited States
Meri was a wonderful guide. She quickly felt like family. She knows Martinique extremely well, both its history and how to find all the scenic and historic spots. We had significant disabilities that made her job harder but she managed perfectly! We would love to have her show us more of the island.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Phil, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and for your kind words! It was also my pleasure to meet you all and show you around the north. I very much enjoyed our discussions too, do let me know if you ever come back and I'll take you to see more! :)
I couldn't possibly find better guide! Meri is awesome! Just the fact that she was able to prepare a custom tour for 1 me only is simply not only 5 but 10 stars worth rating! If you want to see Martinique and learn history of the island - find Meri! She's the person to make it happened! Thank you Meri for really awesome day! Joanna
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Joanna! It was a pleasure meeting you and showing you the island! :) Hope to see you again and good luck with the change of climate...
Absolutely amazing tour! Meri was fantastic! Highly organized, and an enjoyable day! Can't wait to return!
Joanne LindebergUnited States
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.
Connie HigleyUnited States
Great tour my Meri, what I liked about this tour was that Meri customized it for us as we went along. Meri is very knowledgeable about the area and speaks perfect english. I highly recommend Meri as a tour guide if you are visiting Martinique. Connie
Jill GoukerUnited States
We had planned for Meri to take us to Mt. Pelee to hike the volcano, but due to dense fog/clouds and rain on the mountain we decided to do something else. Meri did a great job of coming up with alternative options on the fly so that we could plan out a fun day that met our specific likes and budget. She took us to many places away from the regular tourist crowds and gave us a great taste of the beauty of Martinique. Meri is very friendly, easy to talk to, and a good honest person. Highly recommend!
Dan OnkkaUnited States
Meri was a delight - she knows the city history, and made it come alive for us as we walked about. It was raining buckets for part of our tour - and she had even brought extra umbrellas for us! Our tour ended with a glass of juice, and an opportunity to review a map of the entire island. We now have a good idea on how we want to spend our remaining time here. Meri brought us out to the airport so we could rent a car. Clearly service above and beyond!
Excellent tour guide, it would have been very difficult without her assistance
