5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

This tour was awesome. Errol, our driver, was fun, personable and very knowledgeable. We were picked up in a newer minivan that was clean and comfy, the AC kept us cool on a warm and humid day. Errol planned out our day but let us call the shots. We saw nearly the entire island and really got to see the people of Trinidad as they live - this is not a sanitized touristy tour. We made pit stops whenever necessary - Errol knew where to stop. We stopped in Mayaro for lunch and had some great local fare in a place that was clean and had great service. We made changes to the itinerary as necessary - for example, we live near the beach so we stopped at the beaches to just take a look rather than take the time for a swim. Each of the areas we saw are distinctly different. We definitely recommend this tour, book with Errol if you can. The trip was well worth the time and cost. You'll go home with a great understanding of this wonderful country.

The driver was on time to take my wife and i on the scheduled tour.The tour was on a public holiday, so it gave us, I am told, a less labored and cluttered road travel.The driver was informative and helpful with information as we proceeded on our tour. It was a good opportunity to learn about a literal cross-section of the country and countryside of Trinidad.
I would recommend the experience to anyone who wants to see at first hand some of what Trinidad is.

All three tours were excellent because of the guides. However, dealing with the agency in Trinidad was most discouraging. They would not respond to phone calls, even when the hotel made the call for me. I was never sure when I was being picked up at my hotel.

The guides were not part of the agency; they worked as independent guides. Think twice before dealing with that agency.

It was a shock to be taken on a private tour. I thought we would be meeting and traveling with a group. the tour was excellent. The driver couldn't have been more knowledgeable and we saw a lot of the island

A great way to see different parts of Trinidad. There are not many stops, but lots of beautiful vistas and towns to pass through.

I stayed in the Port of Spain during my visit to the islands of Trinidada and Tobago. My tour guide, Andy, arrived on time, picking me up in the lobby of my hotel. I paid $139.00 for my seven hour personal tour. I was pleased to be the only person because I wanted a low-key, less "touristy" experience. Andy provided just what I wanted. He didn't feel the need to talk on endlessly but allowed me to set the tone for the tour.

When I felt compelled to aske questions Andy was able to provide an asnwer to the question; when I just wanted to sit back and look out the window. He offered to stop at any point, allowing me again to set the pace and course.

The car was clean; he kept his music low. I felt safe during our the drive.

We stopped in the town of Rio Claro for lunch. Prior to heading out, we agreed on a pick up spot. As a woman traveling alone, he was reassuring and provided safety a few safety guidelines..

Though the Island Circle Tour didn't circumnavigate the whole island, it did cover Caribbian, inland and Atlantic views that provided a good overview of the third-world like country.

My experience with Andy went so well that I hired him a few days later to take me to the Caroni Swamp, where I joined a group of tourists for a swamp tour and visually stunning dusk dance of the island's Red Ibis as flocks filled the sky and made their way to their evening perch.

My fiancee and I really enjoyed ourselves. Our personal driver took us to a couple of beaches, and was quite happy to wait for us to finish without rushing us at all. He even took us to a place that we had wanted to see - which was slightly off route - with no charge whatsoever. He was very nice and patient, very friendly and looked after us a lot.

The driver was very helpful and the trip was interesting but evident neglect of a good deal of the country's agriculture and forestry was disappointing.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2015

I did not like the guide.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2014

We were glad this tour was not cancelled, like 2 other tours we took in the Caribbean (one by was cancelled 45 minutes in advance). This tour (5 hours) is in fact a drive (with 2 stops), with a drive along the highway to the south, a road across the island to the east coast, a nice drive along the east coast, and back to Port of Spain. Although mentioned in the tour description, we did not see the Bay of Paria nor the Town of San Fernando. Altough it is nice to get an impression of the Island, we expected more from this tour.
