          I'm a trini food convert!
          We had a brilliant experience going to the queens park savannah food stalls. Doubles, corn soup and a fresh juice stall where we could try a few different ones before getting a glass of our favourites. We then headed into town for a roti which was amazing! Khaleel our guide, was very knowledgeable and makes the tour personable to you making sure you get the most out of it. The portions are massive, definitely you share between two and that comes from someone of the larger variety. Would highly recommend!

          Playing Tourist
          We have family in Trinidad but rarely get to see the sites so decided to be tourists. Our tour guide, Junior was so easy going and nice. we got such a great vibe from him. The official guide at La Brea was also easy going and great! We learned things that we never thought about... the colonial past to the ancient indigenous past. We could have missed the market, but that is because we have been to many markets already. But I got my Trinidad scorpion peppers, so...

          Great half day tour to see the highlights of Trinidad’s bustling city of Port of Spain, like a local!
          My daughter and I had a fantastic time with Enya, our local tour guide, exploring all around Port of Spain! From sampling the fresh fruits and sweet treats at the market, to exploring the Hindu temples, and ending the tour after enjoying a DELICIOUS meal of local foods! We learned so much about Trinidad’s rich history and incredible melding of cultures. Every aspect of this tour was enjoyable, fun, and very well done! Highly recommend this tour and you’re in for such a treat if you’re lucky enough to get Enya as your guide!

          In Reverse
          Actually this tour in my opinion should be done in the reverse. The beach in the morning while its nice and cool. The city in the afternoon. It’s a very informative tour. Khaleel was an excellent knowledgeable guide.

          Our tour guide Khaleel, is very knowledgeable about the Island and it’s culture. He is very accommodating and customer friendly. His driving is quite commendable as well. We toured numerous sites in and around the Island. The open market is quite interesting and personable. The air conditioning was much improved in the car. Thank you for addressing the concern.

          Fabulous day, sights and people
          We're took this trip today with Denton. Just brilliant. So good to get out of Port of Spain to the stunning beaches first and then to walk up the river to a glorious waterfall. Denton also treated us to 'doubles' delicious sort of pancakes filled with chickpeas and herbs. After swimming in the waterfall we went back to Maracus Beach and had bake and shark. Lovely day, lovely people everywhere. The 'Trinis' are just the best people.

          Nice Tour
          The tour was nice. I got picked up around 9am, we visited a local market and then two historic temple sites in Trinidad. Then lastly stopped for lunch at a popular Roti place. The driver was nice & informative about the background of all the different things we seen and passed. The only downfall was that my friend couldn’t make it so I ended up paying an extra amount for her slot due to “same day cancellation not being permitted” but I don’t see that anywhere on the listing, so it would be helpful to list that beforehand so customers are not stuck paying way extra than necessary or just have that in mind before a uncontrollable cancellation happens. But like I said the tour guide was very nice, I definitely would book him again if possible as a driver if I visit Trinidad again.

          Great Trip that takes the whole day! We’ve seen a lot of the north coast and not only the popular Maracas Beach but also more remote beaches and Las Cuevas and beautiful lookouts! I would recommend this tour to everyone who wants to escape the busy city to explore this beautiful island!

          Coral reef and Buccoo Bay
          We drove along the Claude Noel Highway to Buccoo jetty to board out glass bottom boat. We sailed past Plymouth on the Tobago Coast, then on to the coral Gardens and nylon pool. A shallow part of the Caribbean sea. Saw fish through the glass bottom boat. Would highly recommend snokeraling. Took our own masks. The boat did have some to lend out . Also saw Pelicans on the jetty area. The crew were very informative with island historical facts . This was a planned excursion from Marella Voyager. TUI CRIUSE SHIP

          Mini Island Tour a Must!
          Alright where to start... We opted for this tour during our trip on Royal Caribbean. We got to the meeting spot a little earlier than expected which was fine. We were enjoying the warm weather. The meeting time was 9:30AM and our guide Enya (more on the guide later ;))showed up right around that time. She popped right out of that car and let me and my family inside and made sure we were comfortable. She took us first to a fresh market but on the way we got some history of the island, the resources on the island and talked about some of the things that make Trinidad stand out. Fresh Market: Here we got to sample fresh fruits from the island. It wasn't anything we don't get here in the states but let me tell you the flavors were vastly different than anything you can get at a store here. The pineapples were much smaller but very sweet and a lot less acidic. They sliced it up and put it in a little bag with some salt and mixed it up. It was so tasty. Same with the papaya and the yellow watermelons. The only thing that was similar in taste was the oranges. They don't call them oranges but whatever it was was very close. It was a fun way to start the day. Hindu Temple(s): We stopped at 2. Sewdass Sadhu Shiva Mandir Temple and Dattatreya Mandir Temple Compound. They were peaceful and serene. It was lovely seeing all the colors, hearing about the history of the people from various cultures coming to settle here in a big melting pot. We learened about Siewdass Sadhu and his troubles establishing a temple. All of it very beautiful. Pit stop: My son Cal really wanted to try a fresh coconut. Not something you normally find here in the Northeast of the US. She made it a point to stop to get one so he could try the water and the fruit inside. It wasn't the typical brown coconut. It was more green and had more of a jelly like substance that wasn't as sweet. It was a weird texture but tasted good. It was fun for all of us to try. Highway Roti: MY GOD THE FOOD here was soo good. The Roti, meat, beans, everything was just delicious. I would eat that every day if I could (I'm not a good enough cook for that). I know taste is subjective but even our kids loved it (and they had spaghetti every night on the cruise ship...picky is an understatement). My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I think this is the exact place: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g1068873-d6017719-Reviews-Hi_Way_Roti_Shop-Freeport_Trinidad_Trinidad_and_Tobago.html Our Guide: Our guide Enya was so fantastic. Bubbly, friendly, knew her information well, was great with the kids and interacting with them. She was patient with us and all of our questions and got us everywhere we wanted to see and back on the boat with plenty of time. We always felt safe and comfortable and never had any awkardess. I'm not sure if she sees these but if you do, Enya, Thank you for making Trinidad our favorite island of the tip. All of us very much enjoyed it from start to finish. We heard it can be dangerous here after the fact, but we never felt this way on this experience at all. All the locals we met were super welcoming and wanting to share their culture and foods with us. If Trinidad is on your itinerary, give this one a go.

          Well worth doing
          There was actually unseasonal rain at the time of my cruise, but it was still very worth doing. A great counterpoint to the city of Port of Spain, and so close to it. Got to see lots of birds!

        My family has been travelling to Tobago since the 80s and within recent times, noticed that the beauty of the glass bottom boats experience is diminished by the loud music on board the boats. The music is so loud it can be heard in the hotels overlooking the Crown Point/Store Bay areas. Will not be choosing this again - we come for Tobago's beautiful nature and relaxing atmosphere but will go to another island from now on where loud music isn't permitted in public.

        Good day, the loud music you experienced in the general area of Tobago was not part of our tour services hence this review need to be directed to the tourism board page and not on our tour page, it reduces our ratings unfairly.

        Having read good reviews we thought we'd give this a try but I really wish we hadn't bothered. It's a beautiful area but the boat had seen better days. The glass area was small and due to previous nights rain there was nothing but murky water to see. When we arrived at the reef, we were given the chance to snorkel. Our kids decided not to and I'm so glad they made that decision because quite frankly it felt dangerous. We descended off the back of the boat and were told to grab the line attached to a float, which we did BUT the motor was still ticking over, belching out smoke and the boat continued to move dragging us behind. My husband and I were both pulled up against the side of the boat in the process. All the other snorkellers in our group were further out but getting dragged under waves. After a few minutes of this and growing increasingly uncomfortable I made the decision to get back on at which point the others all followed.

        We then proceeded to the Nylon pool, which could have been lovely if not for the seven other boats one of which was pumping out party music at full volume from its mixing decks. Tobago prides itself on having UNESCO biosphere status but there was nothing remotely eco about the hoardes of drunken tourists swamping this area. A huge disappointment and I hope this is not the way Tobago chooses to increase tourism in future. If over commercialialism is your thing, you'll have an excellent time but it really wasn't for us.

        It was a very great experience! Everyone was very nice and everything was very beautiful! My tour guide Edith was very very very hospitable. She was the best host Tobago has. Not only was she a great tour guide but she also was very helpful helpful all different ways above and beyond. There was a storm approaching and she'd made sure to stop by the grocery and help us gather small little items to Las dus the next 2 days.

        We traveled to Tobago by cruise ship and was looking for an excursion thah would be friendly for our 2 young children. The glass bottom boat tour worked out very well as the kids were able to stand in the middle and gaze at all the fish and reefs below. There was an opportunity to get in and snorkel however the seas were very rough that day so we decided not to risk it. Next we went to the nylon pool which was amazing! The water was ankle to knee deep and my kids loves being able to play. The water was beautiful and crystal clear. Lastly before heading back we stop at no man’s land which is a little island, they serve food and beverages for purchase (at a premium rate).
        All in all we had a wonderful time and enjoyed the beautiful waters!

        We arrived by taxi and many people rush over to book you into their boat. We had already been warned some of the boats were not relaxing but more of a party boat trip with loud music etc. Cool runnings being one.
        We opted for a boat that only let on @25 people so was a great relaxing trip out and the captain was very informative. Snorkelling fantastic and saw many beautiful fish on the reef. Water was choppy but didn’t spoil it. nylon pool was lovely to see and had a swim. Good for photos.

        I booked this tour with my significant other to celebrate my 40th Birthday. He's a local and have never been so he was just as excited as I was. My favorite part of this trip was everything. The pickup from our hotel was very accommodating. The driver was amazing. She had great conversation and made us feel safe. Once we boarded the boat the vibes was full hundred. The music was setting the mood on this beautiful day. The ride was smooth and the views were amazing. I honestly did not see a plethora of fish at Buccoo Reef however we did spot some exotic fish. Heading to our next stop Nylon Pool...It should be one of the seven wonders of the world. Absolutely breath taking. The boat crew were very kind and helpful as some people needed assistance getting off the boat. Music blasting through the speakers as we partied in the water. They ensured everyone stayed in the safe area. Last stop was No Mans Land. What a vibe..I love the roasted fish and corn. So delicious, the scene was relaxing and calm. Shoutout to Trevor and his crew. Overall this was a birthday to remember. Thank you Island Experiences.

        Great day Our guide Michael was very good however we were expecting a smaller group with the guide taking us in the water to snorkel.
        We had a group of 2 1 passengers and we were guided into the water off the boat but no guide came in the water.. The water was a little rough. Therefore my husband did not feel comfortable snorkeling without a guide in the water so he did not snorkel …
        Nylon pool was very nice and the beach afterwards was also very enjoyable.
        Our driver was Ruben… very nice!

        This was our favourite day during our trip! Our guide Edith was extremely knowledgeable, flexible, friendly and funny. This is literally the first time I have not gotten seasick in my entire life thanks to Edith's advice. The glass bottom boat was amazing, music was class and we spent a good amount of time snorkeling at Buccoo Reef and hanging out in the Nylon Pool. Would highly recommend to anyone coming here. This is a must-do! Next time I come to Tobago I will book another tour with them. 11/10 stars!!!

        it was an unforgettable trip. It's worth it even in rainy weather. I had the opportunity to leave the Store Bay beach which makes the trip longer but you see more corals and with that you see more species of fish and even a turtle! Edith our amazing guide accompanied us throughout the trip and explained what we were seeing. Nylon pool was beautiful and there were few people due to the weather but we enjoyed it better. the food at No Man's Land is really good! I had the opportunity to go snorkling, but indicate that you want to do it, because you may not have the equipment on board, it's worth it, I loved
