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

This was part of our day out with Peter Cox, the walk to the falls is nice and steady nothing too steep, being the old cocoa plantation it is very interesting to see all the trees which have been planted and thankfully all are labelled with good information about them. The fall themselves are impressive and you have time to... More

Enjoyed the walk to the falls - takes about 25 mins - signs on trees along the way explaining what ailments they can help with. Saw Barred Antshrike and White Fringed Ant Wren, Red crowned Woodpecker and Mot-Mot along the way. You can swim at the falls but have to cross the river to do so. A bit of a... More

Argyle falls in Tobago is another wonder of the world. Located near the Tobago Cocoa Plantation, it's a bout a mile hike into the hills. There is a small entrance fee. The trail is dwarfed by gigantic bamboo trees (it's actually a grass) and plants of all kinds, each with labels for easy identification. There may or may not be... More

We took a cab to Argyle Falls on an old cocoa and coffee plantation and were surprised that we could all climb the falls. We went on Christmas day and for reasons unknown were charged double the normal rate, but we figured even they pocketed it, it was worth it so we did not complain. Our guide was very nice... More
