          A waste of a day
          After 3 hour drive in a very uncomfortable vehicle, not suited to the roads, we landed at Mayora beach which was filthy and encountered a group of starving dogs. There was no visiting San Fernando on the way, as specified. We then travelled to a “private area” of Manzanilla Beach, again a filthy area of Beach with a broken down restaurant and tiki bar for lunch. This trip was a complete waste of a day. The guide was a lovely lady.

          Wonderful trip
          Mr. Jeffrey was very knowledgeable. He showed us things no one else offers. He really loves his home country and it shows. Even in bad weather we were able to go so many new places and he gave us the history behind each. He was very accommodating and made sure to stop multiple places as requested. This was an excellent experience and I’d recommend to everybody coming to the island.

          Touring Trinidad
          Port of Spain is a very old town and it's obvious it's been in the map for ages by its buildings and sacred sites. The Catholic cathedral of the Conception for one was constructed in the mid 1800's. It's located in a huge and very long plaza. The interior is typical Spanish with patio doors, ornate lighting hanging from the ceiling and alcoves. In the basement various decreased church dignitaries are entombed. A few steps away is Chinatown and the hustle and bustle of shoppers looking for treats and bargains. The business district is home to many a modern sky scraper and hi rises. At the waterfront there is an overpass which makes it easy to cross the busy highway. Guides in red shirts are very helpful and informative. The currency in Trinidad is the T&T. Inside the marina is a craft market and WiFi is free.

          Lovely way to get a taste of Trinidad
          A lovely drive with a knowledgeable tour guide/bus driver with a great sense of humor. (I wish I could recall his name, but his bus was called "God's Favour." Loved seeing the Port of Spain area and then moving along to higher vistas with views. The botanical garden was a little underwhelming, but our guide there was full of info about the different trees we saw. My favorite stop was Uncle Sam & Sons for the Bake & Shark, a delicious sandwich recommended by our driver. Overall, a lovely way to see the island and get a little taste of local flavor.

          Reliable, Friendly, and Professional Tours
          If you have an option to pick your tour guide choose Jeffrey. You will not be disappointed. He has a wealth of knowledge from history to plants and everything in between. He will show you some hidden treasures and you will be thankful that you have had the opportunity to meet him.

          Tour of Trinidad Industrial Complex - meh
          Visiting the pitch lake was very cool. The lunch was excellent and super cheap. The rest was boring. More of a tour of the industrial complexes of Trinidad, such as multiple refineries and cement factories. The temples weren't anything special to me. A long day for not much fun sites. The driver was very nice and communication with the tour company was outstanding

          Pitch Lake is great! But very long unnecessary return
          The experience in the pitch lake was great, swimming in the lakes and walking over the pit is a unique experience. Took us about 1h30 to arrive from Port of Spain. The problem was in the way back, almost 2 hours drive to stop in the middle of nowhere to eat something was not special at all and because of this huge turn we need another hour to arrive in the next attraction making the tour unnecessary too long.

          Maybe I was on the wrong tour ?
          I'm really convinced we were put on the wrong tour by mistake as we didn't see any view point of a the beach. We didn't even leave the main shopping area near the port. As nice as the tour guide was it wasn't at all what we expected or paid for £120 was a shocking price for what we received. The tour was meant to last 3.5 hours and we were back on the ship within 1 hour 50 minutes . I think this all came from a lot of confusion at the port area as nobody had a sign we then called the number on the booking and was told to go to an informed kiosk who were very friendly and polite and pointed us to a guy in a white shirt (but no sign or branding) he then shouted over to a guys who said "your tour is with me" like I said the guy was friendly enough but the tour was really poor quality for the money we paid.

          seeing all the pitch from Pitch Lake is unique. Going to where the floods in 2021 washed away homes and roads was incredible.

          Scenic drive around Trinidad
          what I learned from my tour guide was unreal. He was very informative and very helpful with his explanations, Good value for the cost of tour.

          Dead disappointed by a deadbeat experience
          As this site does not offer just a review of the city where we stayed for 8 days, I am tucking a look at POS here. We never took a tour as reviews here were bad, the cost is exorbitant as is everything here. We walked. At 75 we have done considerable travelling worldwide -- mostly in developing countries--but this place can surely be missed. The taxis charge in US$, per person so a short trip up the hill to the Art Gallery and botanical gardens was $50US. So if you come make sure you get a TTfs app as a tourist paid $1 for what we paid $35 (and you can tour about all you like.) The gardens are not in bloom and this place is a dust bowl so we saw no reason to go. Nor would we get any pleasure from seeing the President's house given the few folks we talked to blamed the government for economic inequality and high inflation. There is not one construction project anywhere downtown which gives an idea about the economy. Maybe because folks only pay a flat $10 property tax, stuck at WWIi levels when implemented.Nor are there any dogs, a cultural thing we were told. We queried our hotel about the museum, to walk there to find it closed for renovations since 2021, yet to be started. The "attractions" -- the Woodford Square and the national parliament buildings best features were inoperative water fountains.The walk down Independence Square South was littered , the most exciting point was the "twin towers" and flagpoles without flags. Eateries downtown were all fast food:KFC, Dairy Queen, Subway, Church's chicken and in our daily walks there was no one offered a smile, like the walking dead. Even in business places, staff hid behind steel bars. One office worker did smile as we neared, to say if she had the money for a flight, she would be gone. No fun on the streets like a steel band or such as one finds most everywhere. After all, it's all about the energy of a place. We paid to go to the Movietown mall, saw a movie and had a great Italian meal at Frederico's. We stayed at the Hyatt, shiny new and stylish but uppity because they stand out from the norm and had biz groups here and there. But bring bucks if you want to eat. As backpackers until Covid, we are travellers, not tourists, so found a market for granola/yogurt vs.the breakfast at $41US, and we had one-meal room service for 3 nights!!! We looked at the Radisson as the rooftop restaurant might be a treat:: stuck in the '60s, only Sunday brunch and the buffet looked low grade for $60US/per while the Hyatt $80US brunch was grand. To be noted is we can afford to pay, but expect value not a perpetual rip-off. We came here in transit to Barbados and the Antilles so had no interest in seeking out the swamp or beaches in the humidity for several hundred as there are prettier beaches elsewhere. We didn't feel unsafe, just sad to have made the effort and $ to come here. Won't be back, for sure.

        It was a bit confusing finding the driver from the cruise port, but once we found Ahmar, he was wonderful. Answered all our questions to and from the Beach and was very polite and courteous. Was definitely worth booking this on our own.

        I traveled to the beach with Curacao fascinating tours. Ms Jantree couldn't have been nicer more informative and gave the best tour of Curacao I have ever had there. You won't be disappointed if you book with her.
