For the past 3 years I've organized and co-led an environmental field study of Trinidad and Tobago for a group of undergraduate students from Haverford College in Pennsylvania, U.S. For our first trip, Jason was our guide for just the Tobago portion of our travels. He was such a good tour guide that we decided to hire him to guide us for the full trip in both Trinidad and Tobago in future years.

Jason is incredibly knowledgeable about T&T's flora and fauna, and he has a knack for spotting birds in the most remote places. Most of all, our students absolutely loved him! He has a way of keeping them engaged during even the "in between" moments while traveling between sites, which is so important when traveling with a group of college kids!

As the trip organizers, Jason and I work together to plan the trip for months in advance. He is incredibly organized, responsive to my requests, and reliable both in the planning phase and during the field study.

I wouldn't trust my tour with anyone else. If you're planning large or small group travel or even just a solo trip, I couldn't recommend Jason more highly!

Hi Stephanie, I appreciate you volunteering this kind review. I especially appreciate the years of business that you & Haverford College have offered me. I've enjoyed the experiences and every group that visited. I'm so looking forward to working along with you all again, as soon as we get past the present pandemic. Please stay safe!

Jason is a gem, pure and simple.

From our first communication to our final goodbye, he was the epitome of professionalism.

Jason took my husband and I birding on the Main Ridge which is a stunning location and rich in beauty and biodiversity.

Thanks to Jason's good eyes and ears we saw a wide varity of birds. We really enjoyed Jason's company as he educated us not only about our immediate surroundings, but also about the island's culture and history.

We concluded the day with a late lunch at Jemma's Tree House Restaurant where delicious Island food was served with a smile.

We would not hesitate to hire Jason again or recommend him to anyone traveling to Tobago in search of a guide.

We contacted Jason from our hotel to say that we would like a tour of Tobago taking in the natural history and scenery of the island. He replied promptly with a personalized itinerary which exactly suited what we wanted. Jason collected us from our hotel on time. The wonderful tour took in lookouts, historical background, explanation of birds and trees, visits to deserted beaches, a drive through the rain forest reserve and an unforgettable stop at the hummingbird feeding station where we were able to experience hummingbirds zooming and hovering around us. Jason is highly qualified on all counts, expert natural historian and very alert to the requirements of tourists as well as having an excellent telescope. He is also very friendly and welcoming and we learned a lot about the history of Tobago as well as its wildlife. We can't wait to go with him again.

Hello Philip & Barbara, I am so very grateful that you took the time to offer this very favourable review, while still on holiday. It means a lot that you shared this when there's still so much to see & do during your short stay on Tobago. I'm happy that I was a positive part of the experience of sowing off this beautiful island. I truly enjoyed spending my time with you even thought it rained so much. I'm looking forward to sharing more of the island with you when you return (hopefully on a sunny day :-). Thank you!

Jason was a great nature/bird guide! He picked us up on time, providing comfortable transportation with plenty of room and bottles of water for the ride up to the rainforest. He provided insightful commentary during the drive on birds, nature, and T & T. A walkthrough of Gilpin Trace, in Main Ridge Forest Reserve, should not be missed when visiting Tobago. Jason took us on the journey pointing out the natural attributes along the way. He was spot on in assisting us to sight birds we would have never seen or been able to identify on our own. He knew them by call and area along the trace. We were even emailed a list of all the birds we had sighted along the way. It was a pleasant, enjoyable, and insightful jaunt. We highly recommend Jason!

Hello Peter, and thank you for your favourable review. I'm so happy that you enjoyed my commentary. The Rainforest is such a magical place, especially now having not been there in almost two years. The bird life is fantastic, making it a joy for me to share. Thank you for the opportunity!

Jason Radix came highly recommended by a close friend and he did not disappoint.

I had an amazing experience with Jason for our trip into the Tobago Rainforest on August 1st 2022 and learned so much more about my country within the space of ~5hrs. On our trip, we saw jacamars, sabrewings, white-throated spadebill, blue-black manakin and Mot Mots

As a world traveler and novic wildlife photographer, Jason ranks top 5 of guides that I have ever used. I look forward to using his services again in the near future.

Thank you Jason.

Hi Alvin & Monique, it was my pleasure hosting you both. Even though I had some vehicle malfunction, I got it sorted, and it turn out to be a very productive and enjoyable day. I'm so happy that we were able to complete the entire tour and benefited from exploring this beautiful island together. Excited to meet you again during your next visit. Thank you!

We had no expectations for our visit to Tobago but would absolutely go back thanks entirely to our experience with Jason. He was so incredibly kind and knowledgeable about anything we asked. He is clearly passionate about what he does including delivering an exceptional, personalized experience to any group he is hosting. We’re so glad we did this private guided experience instead of booking an excursion through our cruise line - the value was unmatched. I would absolutely return to Tobago and seek out one of Jason’s many tours and recommend to anyone.

Hi Lauren, thanks for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I can't overstate how much of a pleasure it was hosting you and your family. It was like reconnecting with old friends. Although you weren't a typical "Birder", I'm glad that you appreciated all the birds and wildlife we witnessed together. Thank you for being such receptive clients, and hope to meet you again in the future.

On Friday 17th January 2020, my classmates and I were privileged to visit our beautiful sister island, Tobago, on a one day excursion. We intended to gain a better insight on the tourism sector of the island and become knowledgeable on its impact on business and by extension their economy. Mr. Jason Radix, our well-informed tour-guide, enlightened us tremendously on all the questions we asked. At every site on the journey, he shared useful and fascinating information on its history. Mr. Radix’s passion and enthusiasm for his field of work was definitely demonstrated throughout the trip. I recommend without a doubt, Mr. Radix for your tour-guide needs for a phenomenal experience.

To Lakshmi Girls High School, thank you. This is the forth year and group of students which I've hosted. As before it is was my pleasure to share my knowledge in the fields of Toursim Management and Entrepreneurship. I'm glad that I've enlighten another stock of 6th form students. Good luck with your exams; I'm sure that you all will again accomplish high-scores nationwide. Thank you!

We had a fantastic guided tour of Tobago with Jason last year and promised ourselves we'd ask him to take us again when we returned this year. Luckily Jason was free and two days ago took us out for an unforgettable walk into the Tobago rainforest. His knowledge of birds and plants is phenomenal and he picked out sounds and sights which we would never have seen on our own. Jason used his telescope to highlight birds for us to admire - we are not ornithologists but we were fascinated to see hummingbirds, Motmots, bats, rare moths and much else besides.
Jason answered emails promptly, collected us on time from our hotel, and we loved the drive around the island with his commentary on all things Tobago, from the specialist natural history information to discussions about history and contemporary politics.
Great value as well - Jason took us to the Argyll Falls on the way home and drove through Scarborough for us to experience the vibe!.
Thank you Jason for a truly memorable day out which we'd recommend to all, whether specialist plant and bird enthusiasts or, like us, tourists who want to feel we've really experienced a place away from the hotels and beaches.

I was a member of the Tucson Audubon Society who used Jason as our guide over the course of three days. He also provided airport transportation and a bus for the tour group of 11. He was more than willing to answer any questions about life in Trinidad and Tobago and everything about nature. He was very knowlegable and worked to get us all good looks at the birds and other wildlife. You won't be disappointed!

Hi Kaye, thank you very much for taking the time to offer this favourable review, I appreciate it. I'm so glad that you recognised my efforts to ensuing that everyone had a good experience; it's not easy to manage a large group of birders especially within the forest. Yet, your entire group made my job an enjoyable one. Thank you for visiting and I hope to host you again sometime in the future.

Jason was the perfect guide for us. Having the flexibility to choose our itinerary combined with Jason’s advice on places to visit made for a perfect day.
We especially enjoyed lunch out at ‘Jemma’s’, a local restaurant which served wonderful food such as King fish, breadfruit pudding and cucumber salad with ginger. All delicious.
We would not hesitate using Jason’s expert services in Tobago or Trinidad.
