Whether you live in Martinique or you are here for a short-stay, booking a guided tour of Fort-de-France, the island’s main city, is a good idea. And it gets even better when you can eat your way, right? Here are 5 reasons why you should come to a Tété Dwèt walking food tour in Fort-de-France! Our tours are available in French and English.
Go beyond the iconic buildings of Fort-de-France
Fort-de-France is known for three buildings: Schoelcher Public Library, the St. Louis Cathedral and the Grand Marché. Is that all? No! But this is what you are going to read everywhere. Fort-de-France is so much more than that! For example, most people don’t know that there are more than 15 protected buildings downtown, each of them having an artistic or historical interest. Let’s honest, here in Martinique, they are not always well-maintained, however, if you look closely, there are some hidden gems.
Trust a guide who knows best
When you don’t know a city, it can be scary or overwhelming. Fort-de-France is no exception. Navigating the streets, finding a parking slot, understanding your environment is not always easy. By taking a guided tour in Martinique, you are getting accompanied by a local expert who will provide you with a more intimate sightseeing of the city.
