Port of Spain tour… amazing!
arushkaa, 21-04-2022
We had an amazing time on the Port of Spain city tour with our wonderful guide Jenelle! Having booked online and paid in advance, we had a very smooth experience. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel which was very convenient. Jenelle was a fantastic guide, extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer all our questions. She was a very accommodating guide and took us round in a super comfy ride too! We were very lucky to have such expertise local knowledge from her. We saw the main city centre area by car, stopping at the main sights and visited the main museum which was very interesting. We finished the tour with incredible views of Port of Spain from the top of fort George. Would highly recommend for the best flavour of Port of Spain!
An excellent tour

The trip was overall a wonderful experience and is recommended if you’re interested in architecture and history. Our tour guide, Khaleel was patient and give us detailed explanations of the county’s cuisines, culture, and history. When you’re in Independence Square stop for a coconut and snow cone!

Jesse James Members Only Maxi Taxi Tour

If Trinidad and Tobago are on your visit-list, hire Jesse James to be your guide. We did, and he made all the difference. Our five days were chockful of activities, tailored just for us.
Family. That’s how we were treated during our five-day visit. He accompanied us during most of our adventures, but when he wasn’t there, he was. Jesse routinely texted our 6-person group to make certain we were safe and having the ideal island experience he so wanted for us. Laughs came easy and often.
Jesse was the right-side driver while we “birded” in the countryside. Macaws in flight! The race was on. We arrived to see the landing. Wild macaws perched, maybe 40 feet above us: 3, then 4, then 5. Earlier, Jesse spotted howler monkeys in the far-off thickness.
Sure, Jesse can show you the colonial architecture of “The Magnificent Seven,” the lookout point at Fort George, and even leatherbacks nesting on Matura Beach, but he can add back-stories that only a life-long native can lend.
He also knows where to get the best street food, and bonus: Jesse knows the vendors. And if you go, ask for the Bake and Shark on Maracas Beach.
When we flew to Tobago, he had a driver waiting for us. Better, he arranged the snorkeling trip and a memorable dining experience at Waves.
Jesse is your single point-man. Jesse has made life-long connections at the ports, including the Trinidad Yacht Club in PoS. By air or by boat, get to Trinidad if you can. You just may have a family member you have yet to meet.
