The Most Hospitable Guide
Malecia_B, May 2022
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.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you so much for your review Malecia. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your tour!
Above and Beyond Tour Experience
Gary_S, Feb 2022
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.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear of your unique experience and will pass on the message to Jeffrey. Wishing you all the best.
We have never been to Trinidad, so...
Kenneth_J, Feb 2017
We have never been to Trinidad, so we wanted to see the city we were staying in. Since we don't sit at the beach, we didn't want to spend the time and money for a beach tour, to be there for an hour or so then leave. This tour satisfied both desires in one trip. Errol was our tour guide and he is so knowledgeable about the island. We toured Port of Spain and saw the Red House and many other historic sights. Errol even knew of the events happening around town that week to recommend other exciting things to do. We then ventured over the mountains to Maracas Bay beach. It is awesome. While there, we had a chance to try Bake and Shark! Again, Errol knew exactly where to go. We then ventured back to town. It was a great 1/2 day trip and well worth it.

Ghislaine_W, May 2016
We took the morning tour on Friday and I have to say the traffic was very hectic however we got to see a lot in half a day! Norman was very informative and we enjoyed our bake and shark and the views of Trinidad! The free time at Maracas was just what we needed after a hectic day driving in Trinidad
This was a very good tour. Ulrich...
Sydney H, May 2013
This was a very good tour. Ulrich, our driver, was a lot of fun and responded well to our particular interests ... food! If you are into scenery, this is a GREAT tour. There is not much to see in terms of "attractions", but I am glad we took this tour. We would not have seen nearly as much of the North Western terrain of Trinidad otherwise.
Amazing tour with an amazing guide
Peter_K, Feb 2020
If you're in Trinidad, you need to go with Jeffrey. One of the best guides I've ever had. He makes the whole experience one to remember, with his detailed knowledge of Trinidad and can converse on any topic that interests you.

Thank you for leaving a review! We will pass your kind message on to Jeffrey. We’re glad you enjoyed your tour and hope you can come back again sometime!
Trinidad Port of Spain Area
Jim_C, Aug 2019
I travel for work and don’t always get to experience or enjoy the places I get to visit. This trip was perfect, Jefferey was fantastic and made the quick journey around informative and entertaining. I learned a lot , and I got to see parts of the area I would not had been able to. I booked on very short notice, late the night before, and the tour operators was not only accommodating but a pleasure to work with.

Keidi C, Dec 2017
Wanted to thank the Viator Representative that helped us with this booking. We were leaving the next day and she made this tour happen for us, so thank you again! The tour was great, very informative and private. It was my husband and myself and it was amazing. The driver made numerous stops, such as the cocoa plantation we actually got to see the cocoa up close and was able to taste it- awesome experience, maracas we stopped for the bake and shark- a must, and toured the city. Amazing experience would definitely recommend.

GAUTAM S, Jan 2017
It was an amazing experience, thanks to our tour guide Errol. He arrived on time and started driving us around the city at first and stopping at points of interest . He helped us in understanding the culture and history of Trinidad with his experience and knowledge. He even offered to stop at specific points so that we could take pictures! The scenic drive through the rainforest was beautiful and picturesque. We drove to Maracas beach and spent time there savoring the beauty of the beach. We also dined on the local food there, bake and shark, something very good and also enjoyed local music! All in all a very worthwhile experience, thanks to Errol!

Errol, the tour guide was a few minutes late but once he got there and we get to know him, he was awesome. He was very patient and took us where we want to go. He also made a few good suggestions. This tour is great, I highly recommend it and I highly recommend Errol so you can request him when you book a tour in Trinidad.

Gregory H, Jul 2016
Great time. Guid showed us around well. Unfortunately came in during the time at the end of Ramadan, therefore did not see as much of the city as I would like to. Recommend tour especially if one has never been to Trinidad. Thanks Viator

Brenda V, Dec 2016
Errol was our wonderful guide for this Scenic Drive. He had a wealth of knowledge about the island and made Trinidad come alive for us. We saw much of vegetation, beautiful beaches, and ate a shark sandwich. Errol loved photography and he was always willing to slow down or pull over for pictures. He knew the history of the island and shared it with us as we went along. This a wonderful way to be introduced to Trinidad and a great tour.

Norman our driver was very knowledgeable of Trini history, and buildings- We had a great time with him touring city of Port of Spain-seen a lot, bought souvenirs - went to Maracas Bay for lunch and ate at Richards shark and bake, delicious, would recommend to anyone to ask for Norman to take Trinidad highlights and scenic drive tour.

ALLAN N L, Jan 2016
We had an excellent afternoon with Errol, our knowledgeable and personable guide. His vehicle was immaculate. We saw the sights of Port of Spain before driving through the rain forest and mountains to Maracas Beach. At Sam's we had Bake and Shark and ice cold Stag beer - delicious! Errol went far beyond the call of duty, taking us shopping after the tour! Be sure to ask for him by name when booking tours or drives in Trinidad: Errol Hassanali.
Jeffrey will help you taste real Trinidad
RussellEthan_J, May 2022
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.
