Yesterday we decided to go for a rainforest hike with our 3 8-10 year old girls. While driving to the forest we were stopped by Fitzroy Quamina. He was amazing. He lead us on a hike in the rain forest pointing out great birds, flora...More

breath-taking view and nice for wildlife visitors and friends. It may be difficult at times to view different species but its nice, peaceful and quiet.

This was one of the high points of our visit to Tobago. The walk in the forest was not too difficult and gave us a great experience. Zolani (or just 'Z') as our guide is called, has extensive knowledge and really made a difference.
