Welcome to Guadeloupe


As well as the ‘mainland’ of Guadeloupe, there are a number of small offshore islands including Les Saintes, Marie-Galante and La Désirade, each of which gives visitors its own taste of Guadeloupe’s yesteryear. These are some of the most evocative and untouched destinations in the French Antilles, and shouldn't be missed.

Pointe-a-Pitre Food Tasting and Historical Sightseeing Tour

Guadeloupe’s economic capital, Pointe-à-Pitre, city of art and history, is located at the junction of Grande-Terre and Basse-Terre. While most visitors just drop in to Pointe-à-Pitre for shopping for french cosmetics, madras-colored fashions and perfumes, you will have the unique opportunity to experience a historical tour coupled with a food tour. The tour will first bring you to the town center where you'll visit The Place de la Victoire ("Victory's square"). Here you'll see some old trees said to have been planted by Victor Hugues, the mulatto who organized a revolutionary army of both whites and blacks to establish a dictatorship following the French Revolution. In this square he kept a guillotine busy, and the death-dealing instrument remained until modern times. The visit will continue towards the old presbytery and the St Pierre et St Paul basilica, built between 1807 and 1814. You will then be guided to a restaurant to sample some ti-punch (a beverage made with rum, cane syrup or sugar, and lime). Following this first stop, you will walk to The covered market in Pointe-à-Pitre, where vendors display colorful local fruits, vegetables, spices, sauces, and hand-made crafts. You will try the bokit (a typical sandwich from Guadeloupe fried in hot oil. It can be eaten as is but it is usually filled with different ingredients such as cod, tuna, ham, chicken or conch. Soft on the inside and crusty on the outside, bokit tastes delicious! You will also get to try the famous "sorbet au coco". This refreshing delight is made from coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, lime zest and a few drops of bitter almond. The tour ends with tastings of coconut water and sugar cane juice by the fish market.

In the Heart of Guadeloupe

We'll start the day with a visit to the Domaine de Severin, a famous agricultural rum distillery known for its petit train attraction. You will discover the distillery and learn about the rum making process (sugar cane crushing, fermentation and distillation), the paddle wheel, the old rum, rum bottling, punch and spices. Rum is ubiquitous to the Caribbean but the one made in Guadeloupe is like no other. Unlike most islands which produce industrial rum (made from molasses), Guadeloupe’s producers distil directly from the sugarcane juice, which results in a purer flavour. It’s called Rhum Agricole and counts for only 3% of the world production of rum. The molasses rums are often fruitier, while the sugar-cane rums seem earthier, more vegetal and, in a sense, purer. A beautiful open trail will then take you through the tropical gardens. A traditional Caribbean lunch will be offered at noon with the famous Ti-Punch, made with rum, cane syrup or sugar, and lime. In the afternoon, take a pen and a paper to learn to write and speak creole with an outdoor playful lesson before going on to a sorbet tasting in a beautiful tropical garden.
