Was aboard Frankie's Glass Bottom Boat to embark on a tour to the coral gardens, nylon pool and no man's land! An epic experience indeed: vibes from start to finish, knowledgeable tour guide, Frankie enlightened us a great deal about the the corals, fishes, mystical myths of the Nylon Pool and was friendly to all aboard. The magical island of... More

From the time the boat was boarded the vibes began!!! Music, drinks, laughter, fun and interesting information. The first stop at the Reef was exciting and beautiful. The tour guide Frankie explained everything thoroughly and kept everyone entertained. The time spent at Nylon Pool was relaxing and the No Man's Land experience was unforgettable. Can't wait to return!

I was fortunate to have taken taken two tours them. It was reasonable prices and the service and pick up was great traveling solo I didn't have to think of anything. I was able to see most of Tobago on both tours. Frankie Son and Lynton were friendly and knowledge. Thank you

Went with two friends my sister and brother this past weekend to have some fun together while we were visiting some family. We were informed that there was only one last boat leaving for the evening so we decided to buy tickets for Frankie's boat. Though my friends were locals we were each charged 100$TT and 80$TT for my brother... More

Though there was some miscommunication at first regarding the starting location for the Nylon Pool/Beach bbq tour, Frankie made sure all was right in the end, and the experience turned out to be incredible. The waters around Buccoo reef were a bit choppy that day, so snorkeling was a bit of a challenge. However, the beautiful Nylon Pool more than... More

When I first decided to do Frankie's tour, I was skeptical. Many locals advised me against going with Frankie and tripadvisor's negative reviews detracted me. However, my group decided to move forward and to be honest I think there is a big misunderstanding about the tour. Many people seem to think the tour includes unlimited beverages onboard, but the rum... More

We travelled with friends who know the island well and booked a rainforest tour, fishing trip and the coastal tour. The rainforest trip was great - we were picked up at 8am in a comfortable air conditioned minivan and our guide drove us up to the rainforest explaining points of interest and stopping for photographs when suitable opportunities arose. The... More

On entering Store Bay Facility, we were bombarded with the 'salespersons' for various tours, and our main reason for going on this tour was to visit No Man's Land. We finally settled on Frankie's Tours 1) If you can avoid Frankie himself, please do so. The man is arrogant, ill mannered and either forgets the price initially quoted or lies... More
