Rickshaw taxi in Pointe-à-Pitre

transportation

New and environmentally friendly, the rickshaw taxi offers enjoyable guided tours of Pointe-à-Pitre in a freewheeling vehicle that allows you to fully appreciate the charms of the city.

Climb aboard this three-wheeled cart, pulled by a cheerful cyclist ready to take you on a city discovery, and succumb to the subtle charms of this city of art and history.

Ride through its unusual streets to visit markets, museums, the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul, and the majestic ACTe Memorial. It is best to visit the city in the early morning to enjoy its lively and colourful markets, including the Saint-Antoine Market, also known as the ‘spice market', run mainly by ‘doudous' in their ample dresses and madras headscarves selling spices and homemade products, such as fritters and macerated rums. In the main street of Saint-John Perse, you can visit the house where the eponymous diplomat, poet, and Nobel Prize-winner for literature grew up. Do some shopping on Frébault street and admire the charming wooden houses, such as the Forier House, a fine example of colonial architecture. During this trip, your driver will punctuate his stops with anecdotes, memories, and historical information. Don't miss the ACTe Memorial, a new centre dedicated to the memory of slavery, inaugurated in 2015.

After this eco tour, it's time to thank your passionate cyclist…
