Enjoy the flavor and culture of the capital city of Martinique, Fort-de-France. Your guided walk takes you to exciting food tastings and past historical buildings with unique architecture...immerse yourself in the culture of the island!

You’ll meet your guide outside your Martinique cruise ship port. Your friendly guide will tell you interesting stories and juicy tidbits about the island. The pace is slow as the guide leads you down the sidewalks of the city - there is a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 per group. A stroll through the local market is a sensory experience. Enjoy the colors, music and fragrance of spices. See stalls of fruits, vegetable, spices, rum, madras fabrics, clothes and handicrafts. Along the way, you will stop at different locations to sample and learn before moving to the next stop.

Walk past the Palais de Justice built in 1906 with its Italian neoclassic architecture and resembling a French railroad station. In front is a statue of the French abolitionist and writer Victor Schoelcher. The Schoelcher Library, built in 1884, was avant-garde for its time. It was constructed using a combination of concrete, wrought iron and wood to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes.  It was built at the request of Schoelcher and holds about 9,000 of his personal books and 250 musical scores. You'll also see St. Louis Cathedral, a Catholic church that opened in 1657, but because of natural disasters, is now a Romanesque Revival style building built in 1895. This is the 7th church built on this site and now has an iron frame to withstand any future disasters.

Your walk has 5 different tastings. These include: 1 local sugar cane juice, 1 ice cream to take away after several tastings of local and handmade ice creams, local candies like doucelette (made with coconut milk), tablette coco (sweet treats made with coconut pulp), tablette pistache (a brittle made with pistachios), filibo (hard candies), a local salt dish called Colombo de poulet (like a chicken curry), and a pastry of your choice from a local bakery.

Your last tasting will be enjoyed in Savannah Park. This large park and green space is in the center of the city and has palm trees, statues and memorials. Enjoy your food and relax on the grass, on blankets and pillows. The overall walking time is approximately 1 hour and covers several blocks.

Your guided walk of Fort-de-France will give you an appreciation of the history, culture and cuisine of the island. At the end of your day, you can stay a little bit longer in Savannah Park to continue exploring at your own expense, just in front of the park you can find La Francaise beach where you can take a swim or just sit and relax; or, if you prefer your guide can take you back to your Martinique cruise terminal.

This is a great way to learn about a culture which is exactly what we wanted to do this time. The local food is delicious, we are so glad we did this excursion. It was mainly in thanks to our guide who was very knowledgeable and he explained to us every single detail about the food we tasted and the places we visited. You could never find something this fun and unique from the cruise ship.

My husband always says that there is no better way to get to know a city than tasting the local food, so we decided to do this tour as a family. The food was better than expected, in fact, it was delicious! We learned a lot from the tour guide about Martinique's culture and food. I admit, my husband was 100% correct!

We loved this tour! Good thing it was a slow pace because I did it with my parents, we saw historical landmarks of the town and visit five food tasting locations. All of the places visited are were amazing. We tasted salty and sweet treats including traditional sweets and pastry. We really enjoyed the tour.

 Whenever possible I always choose Shore Excursioneer. Their excursions are always "top notch" and so very easy to book. I very rarely book through the ship anymore, mainly because the same excursion is probably more expensive or they don't offer an excursion that I'm interested in. Case in point on our last trip to Cozumel on the Valor we booked our excursion to Mr. Sanchos Beach Club through Shoreexcursioneer.com since Carnival didn't even offer it.
