You will be far better off visiting Asa Wright Nature Centre. Instead of being able to see and experience being so close to the humming birds you will be subjected to a rambling, long winded lecture littered with dubious facts on the Amerindians. When I visited this lasted for nearly 90 minuted with less than 5 minutes spent on information on humming birds. The cost of the tour was eye watering.

We spent hours with Theo learning not only about the magnificent display of hummingbirds, but of the deep history of Trinidad. Both were an incredible experience. His photography and slide show is icing on the top as was a delightful lunch.

Visited today and left with a feeling of gratefulness and respect for Theo and Gloria. What a way to introduce their visitors to the history of the country and to the magical hummingbird, and the close connexion between the two! Photographs for sale are a bit too expensive though.

I decided to start my visit to Trinidad & Tobago at Yerette, a sanctuary of sorts hosted by Theo and Gloria Ferguson. Yerette is the name of their personal home and they have decided to share a bit of nature with the public. I attended the mid-day lunch visit and I had 3 other people also on my tour. We had rain showers but were well protected on the covered patio and the hummingbirds just seemed to frolic more in the downpour. Lunch (the light version) consisted of a delicious soup and a small salad, prepared by Gloria, and possibly some helpers. Theo gives a brief intro to the history of the islands and shares some of the indigenous names. He also gives a slide show at the end identifying the hummingbird you may have seen on the visit. I am not sure if it would have been more helpful at the beginning, but I enjoyed it, and his photographs are stunning. Be sure to follow Theo's directions carefully. Also be sure to give the giant Silk Cotton or Kapok Tree a big hug on the way down the hill.

I do not review anywhere whatsoever with the exception if such a place deserves nothing short but excellent and visiting Yerette fits such. From start to finish of your experience at Yerette is extremely fulfilling. Theo has a bottomless pit of knowledge when coming to the hummingbirds and after he is through with you, your overall outlook towards these unique birds will be fulfilling. Apart from listening to Theo sharing his knowledge whilst admiring the birds hovering all around you, he has a lovely slideshow displaying the different varieties of these birds in Trinidad and Tobago. His wife Gloria oversees a lovely assortment of hors d’ouvres and soft beverages that compliments the occasion. Truly the place to experience whilst in Trinidad.
