The walk to this waterfall was really nice, but when getting to the waterfall, it was a bit steep and dangerous to climb too. Having this as a main attraction (& a place where school kids come to visit), I would have thought there would have been railings or steps (or something for accessibility) that could have been put in...

I came to the falls with a group of friends who made it absolutely amazing. We unfortunately came during a rainy period and the falls were not ideal to bathe in as the water was dirty. The hike up to the top of the falls was thrilling... beware of sharp rocks as you enter the pools. They are very slippery... More

Clean waters surrounded by lush vegetation and tropical plants and trees and very safe . Its not easy to find so you could miss it if you passed by you need to look out for the signs we walked in from Roxbourough

I can wholeheartedly recommend Hans Tours for seeing many parts of the island and the Falls. We had an excellent day. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a relaxing and amusing swim in the Falls, watched a myriad of birds, experienced the rainforest (with liquid sun) and found Hans to be extremely knowledgable, courteous and a very good driver!...

We can heartily recommend booking trips with Hans Tours. We did an Island Tour with Hans in April 2014. His knowledge of the island and the wildlife / nature is exceptional. He would often stop on the way just to show us a special bird or fruit tree. His sense of humour is great and he gave us a day... More

We rented a car in Store Bay and drove all around the island and Argyle Falls were a highlight! They don't open until 9am, though, so don't get there too early (like we did) and the entrance is TT60pp. We didn't ask for or get a guide, which was fine - our companions were two very cute little puppies that...

Visited one day after heavy rain. The last path was blocked and the water brown due to the rain, but it was still worth it. The guides meet you at the parking, and you pay a small fee.

This is pretty rustic but charming enough. We paid $TT50 each to get to the waterfall. Tip: You DO NOT need a guide. This is madness. It's a 15 minute straight walk to the waterfall. You can't get lost. Just follow the very wide and clear path for 15 minutes. Simples. Top: you don't need hiking boots. We just wore... More

The falls are so much fun. We paid $60TT each for the tour guide which was completely unnecessary since it is a easy direct road to the bottom of the falls and the guide left us on our own to climb to the top of the falls if we wanted to. By the way you should because the top of... More

Whilst I wouldn't go as far as to say that the falls would be the main reason to visit the north of the island, it's definitely worth making the detour to visit them if you find yourself in the area. They are easy enough to find, there's ample, off-road parking and the walk to the falls is a pleasant stroll... More
