Thanks Theo and Gloria for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, great lunch, and lots of info. You truly live in paradise. It was hard to leave such a peaceful spot. (And the ride up was an experience too!)

The hummingbirds in their natural element were simply phenomenal! What a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Theo & Gloria were so welcoming & I learned so much about these beautiful & fascinating creatures. This is definitely an experience that should not be missed on your visit to Trinidad!

As all the other reviews stated - an amazing experience As a photographer I believe the sun is in the garden in the morning - we went afternoon and the light wasn't the best to take these wonderful creatures Do watch Theo's slideshow and talk - fantastic photos and his humming bird knowledge is probably unparalleled

If you want to see and learn about hummingbirds this is the palce to go. Theo has studied and photographed humming birds fo years and does a great job of explaining the birds and their ecological role. His photos are terrific and the video is absolutely unique.

I would recommend this not only to bird lovers but anyone who wants to learn more about the history of Trinidad in a different context. Theo was amazing as well as the home made food (a real surprise). Very friendly atmosphere! To the Trinidad government please include more about hummingbirds in your syllabus!

I was in a daze for the first 5mins when I visited Yerette for the first time last year. I went back on 13/12/2014 and the sight was out of my imagination. There were about 75 Humming Birds humming their way around the feeders. Such an awesome feeling to sit and watch. This is truly a must visit on your... More

Apparently one of the best places in the world to see hummingbirds I was certainly very impressed! You'll receive an extremely informative talk from Theo about the Hummingbirds whilst they are literally all around the place! Food was included in the price and the soup was AMAZING! Thanks you Gloria!

Yerette is a "must see" in Trinidad. Visiting the private home and gardens of Theo and Gloria is a unique and lovely experience. The drive through the mountains above St. Joseph is beautiful. There are some twists and turns to get there so be sure to call the number on your reservation form and they will guide you. The atmosphere... More

Unique is an overused word but the experience that Theo and Gloria have created in their back garden is most certainly unique. Yerette - an Amerindian word for hummingbird - is an homage to the amazing little birds that come to the couple's garden by the thousand. Theo and Gloria are charming, entertaining and quirky hosts that transmit their enthusiasm... More
