I took a couple of the tours with this company. I visited the Caroni Swamp, took a city tour, and went to the Maracas Bay swim tour. The tour guides Lester and Lisa were so kind, knowedgeable, and worked around my flight schedule. I learned so much from these tour guides. They made sure I had a great time. They... More

Scarlet Ibis are amazing! Just a pity we couldn't have got closer to them without spooking them :(. Also saw Blue Herons, and a very large Cayman, Tree Snakes, Owls and various birds. Only US10 for ticket and tour was 2.5 hours so well worth it. Tour didn't start till 4 o'clock, so sun wasn't too hot

I went on Nanand's boat trip to the Caroni swamp one afternoon, really excited about seeing the scarlet ibis and also just to experience the peace and tranquility of the mangroves. However what I experienced was more like a rowdy party than a nature experience. There were several boats of Nanand tours departing, all full of people packed like sardines.... More

We used Nanan tours for 2 excursions- 1 to Caroni and one to Asa Wright's bird Sanctuary. The drivers are polite and knowledgeable. Both Lester and Andy were safe and courteous drivers and had fantstic knowledge of the areas, tours and the birds! Thanks Nanan tours for a great experience.

We were seriously delayed by traffic on our journey to the Caroni swamps. The proprietor called twice to check our progress and promised his men would wait for us, which they did. We were greeted with a smile and our own boat and were given the full tour despite the late start. Our guide was very knowledgeable and conveyed his... More

We had a wonderful outing at the Bird Sanctuary. Our guide was very informative and basically grew up learning about the swamp and the ecosystem. The scarlet ibis coming in to roost was one of the most spectacular sites I have ever seen. Highly recommended.

I tried to book with another operator but the three phone numbers on their website all went to voicemail. In contrast, Nanan's tours allowed booking direct from the website and was confirmed quickly by email. The tour was good value and the guide quite knowledgeable. We saw snakes and many varieties of birds. Would go with them again.

Our party of four took a tour of the Caroni Bird Sanctuary with Nanan's - a great experience indeed. Our guide was very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about these unique wetlands. The highlight, of couse, was observing the scarlet ibis coming in to roost for the night - what colourful and amazing birds they are! Highly recommended.

We booked a tour of the Caroni Bird Sanctuary with Nanan's and we couldn't have found a better tour guide. Winston Nanan picked us up at the airport and because we had a couple of hours before the Boat tour would begin, gave us an impromptu tour out to see a Hindu Temple in Carapichaima. We drove by some interesting... More

As we had visitors in February this tour was a must and I have to say that having been a few times, it didn't disappoint. I enjoy having Kimraj and the boatman and guide as he is very knowledgable and has eyes like a hawk. Fortunately it was the time of year where there were, seemingly, thousands of birds and... More
