Great small group tour - informative and interesting!

Great tour! Informative and flexible. I wanted a small group tour, and given I booked on a Tuesday in September, ended up with a private tour with the excellent Ulrick as my guide. No fancy tour van - I rode in Ulrick’s car, and it was a realistic local experience. Pickup/dropoff at my hotel worked well.

I was on a short trip to Trinidad and wanted a quick tour to be able to see more of Port of Spain and the island - this tour accomplished that! Ulrick gave lots of great history, and we had the flexibility to stop along the way to take photos (and Ulrick brought me to a few planned overlook spots). Maracas Bay is beautiful, and I enjoyed my Bake & Shark there, and had a few minutes to take some photos on Maracas Beach.

I’m so glad I had a chance to squeeze in this tour on my trip to Trinidad!
Above and Beyond Tour Experience

This was a perfect finale to our trip to T&T. Jeffrey picked us up at our hotel and took us on an informative tour of Port of Spain, including a walk through the botanical gardens which was lovely. Jeffrey was quite knowledgeable about the history and geography of the city and the country more generally. Then he drove us up to beautiful Maracas Beach, where we got bake and shark right on the water and it was delicious. Jeffrey went above and beyond, taking us to a grocery store to get some local hot sauce and then actually repackaging it for us into jars we could carry on to our flight, all before giving us a ride to the airport. It was very generous, and emblematic of the friendly and giving attitude we encountered all over Trinidad and Tobago.
Jeffrey will help you taste real Trinidad

Loved this tour with my guide & driver, Jeffrey. I had cellphone network/roaming issues which led to a delayed start BUT the tour company was incredibly accommodating. When I got back to my Airbnb (which had Wi-Fi), I was able to connect with them and they VERY kindly worked with me. Jeffrey arrived at my Airbnb and our trip began. He explained the history of Port of Spain, showed me the city's very first street and we stopped so I could get a photo of the Brian Lara statue for my dad who is a huge fan. He showed me the beautiful houses along the Magnificent Mile before we headed north. Jeffrey was incredibly kind and stopped along the way so I could take photos and even stopped at what he told me was the best roti (it's like a very mild curry in a wrap) shop on the island so I could sample some of the best local food. He stopped at a couple lookout points for more photo opps and a chance to sample some of the local sweets (candies) at one of the street vendors along the way. Then we headed up to Maracas Bay. Stimulating conversation the whole way. Jeffrey was knowledgable, friendly, incredibly accommodating, and I wholeheartedly recommend booking a tour around the island with him.
The Most Hospitable Guide

Oric was such a great guide. We learmed so much about the island from him and he drove us to some amazing sights throughout Trinidad. He even ended up becoming our aiport driver once there because he was so nice and accomodating. I definitely recommend that you request him when doing the tour and if you need a driver to anywhere, he does it all.
A fun day

We had a great time. Jeffrey, our tour guide, was very friendly and he was able to answer all our questions about buildings, plants and history of the city. It’s a highly recommended tour for those who want to know Port of Spain and its surroundings
