Everything Humbingbird

Theo and Gloria graciously open their home. Theo shares an in depth knowledge of the hummingbirds. A unique experience to see so many varieties so close.

The experience is taken away due to the host sharing too much. While I appreciate that he is proud of his place and has a passion for birds, he should be cognizant to the fact that not all his visitors are as interested in a presentation about the birds. I'd take a gamble and say most people want to just... More

Thought I was going to see a few Hummingbirds flying around. Instead we were treated to approx. 3000 iridescent fairies of 13 different varieties, zipping: up - down - sideways - backwards, within the mere 100 square fert of someone's front yard. Our hosts were extremely accomodating & while I'm aware Theo has a PhD - I didn't realize he... More

Theo and Gloria are wonderful hosts! Theo gives an informative and impressive presentation on the hummingbirds history in Trinidad! And Gloria makes you feel right at home with her delicious refreshments! It was a delightful and relaxing day at The home of the hummingbirds!

We spent from 8.30am to 2.30pm with Theo and his gracious wife and enjoyed their hospitality enormously. We saw lovely Hummingbirds and as we were the only visitors that morning we got good photo opportunities, The Ruby Topaz was elusive but the tiny Tufted Croquet had to be my favourite. A lovely place to visit. Theo's stunning photographs are available... More

Went with my family to visit Yrette after reading that it was a top site according to Trip Advisor. Actually, we tried finding the place the day before but got so lost. None of the locals ( not even when we went to the local police station) even knew about this place, so we were expecting it to be an... More

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
