Maria did a fabulous job of showing us around Martinique. She is very knowledgeable of all of the wonderful attributes of Martinique. She is also very easy to understand and her language skills are superb. Maria was very accommodating and flexible when it came to addressing our interests for the tour and she also found a fabulous place for us to have lunch.

Very nice tour of Martinique. Maria was waiting outside cruise port gate with a sign with my name on it. So no stress there. After greetings,, she explained what we were going to do that day in Martinique. First a walking tour of the city, followed by an island tour in our own air conditioned bus. All went fantastically, and we really bonded with Maria that day - like instant friends! Couldn't have been better. Thanks Maria. You're wonderful. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my Dears - Brad, Suz, Kris and Ken! I enjoyed the time with you and Martinique was really happy to show you the specials ;-) Greetings to Utah!

Maria couldn't have been more pleasant, or accommodating. It was a pleasure to talk with her about Martinique and its history, customs and so on, and her own personal perspective on the island.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Martin, Paddy, Rose! ... Even if the traffic situation was not on our side.... :-)

Tour: Martinique's Natural Beauty, Fort-de-France, Martinique
Date: Mar 14/18

Amazing Tour! Maria helped us plan an incredible unique experience through the rain forest and to a waterfall... I was so hesitant to "Hike through the forest" with 3 generations with us (3yrs - 74yrs), but she assured me it would be fine and it was. Her ability to lead a group and still connect with each guest and make us feel so welcome and special is a GIFT that she has! She is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone! ESPECIALLY with KIDS!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy that all of you liked the challenge :-) I am feeling warm and grateful while reading your feedback. I wish you all the best and we never know what life will bring... maybe I will receive your kids for some weeks french immersion :-) Best greetings to everyone.

Tour: #231539, Private Walking Tour through Fort-de-France + Excursion to the Balata Garden, Fort-de-France, Martinique    view tour
Date: Feb 1/18

We (a group of 10 Americans) asked Maria to provide a walking tour of the historic downtown area combined with transportation to Jardin de Balata to tour the garden and have lunch at Restaurant La Luciole. Simply stated, she did a fabulous job. Her "American" English is very good, but perhaps more important was here ability to easily connect with everyone in the group. She provided factual information about Martinique as well as insights into what it is like to live there. Everyone had a great time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello David, Thank you for the feedback. I had a great excursion with the group and a very pleasant lunch time. Thank you for not forgetting me for the picture :-) Best regards

Maria is infinitely qualified to be a guide. She was delightful, informative & very considerate of our needs. She really loves her adopted country & went out of her way to help us understand its culture, people, religion & life. Bravo Maria! If my wife & I are fortunate to return we will tour with Maria again! Highly recommend.

Maria was a wonderful and incredibly informative guide. Her personality is warm and her hope is that all of her clients have an excellent time. Our tour was customized to meet our desires and was completely fulfilled while visiting this beautiful island. We had the opportunity to visit a rum distillery, waterfall, St. Pierre and the beautiful countryside and were given the opportunity to stop whenever we wanted with pastries at the end. Highly recommend Maria for your next trip to Martinique!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Lori & Co. I am so happy that you liked the time we spent together. I really enjoyed our conversations and the way you experienced the places and stories I showed and told you :-) Will be more than happy to welcome you back... and to come visit you one day :-) Best regards to everybody

Maria was truly awesome! She was professional, friendly, and did a truly nice job of showing our group around Fort-de-France. We loved spending our morning with her and would absolutely recommend her services to anyone. It was nice to have her help navigating the city, educate us on Martinique culture and be there to translate! Thank you so much Maria, we hope to meet again in the future! The Bright Family

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello everyone, I have to add that the time that I spent with you in the restaurant, at Francoise's place was really nice and I feel grateful that you all made me feel so comfortable and enjoy the exchange. Thank you and you know where to find me :)
