“Life Changing!!”
Review of Yerette

Reviewed March 29, 2018

We had the joy of being able to visit Yerette during our short time in Trinidad! and we are so very happy we did!!! As many mention, it is a little tricky to get to but do NOT let this deter you. Just follow the instructions given to you when you book your visit and you will do fine! We arrived slightly later than the planned start but this was not much of an issue, we quietly joined the group who had already gathered. Dr. Ferguson is such a charismatic and intelligent person to be in the company of. His lovely partner and wife, Gloria was a ray of sunshine, and provided the most delicious meal I think I had during our time in Trinidad! May have been the most delicious meal I have ever had!! We shared the hummingbird garden with some other guests, all of who were delightful to enjoy the day with. Now onto these magic creatures we came to visit and experience. They are truly magical! There's not much I can say to explain the feeling you will have sitting amongst them as they go about their business, you just need to experience it yourself. I left feeling light, and carefree, like the fluttering of their wings carried my troubles away! After you enjoy the hummingbirds, you will be invited to sit with Dr. Ferguson as he gives you even more knowledge through a slideshow of photos he has captured over the years! Such a life changing experience, I wish every one could have the pleasure of visiting Yerette!

Not an easy place to get to, but well worth the trip. A haven of tranquility, a beautiful garden filled with masses of hummingbirds. Theo the owner is extremely knowledgeable about these beautiful and delicate birds, and also imparted very interesting information about island history and how it relates to the birds.
A lovely light lunch also included.
Prebooking necessary.

Yerette is not the easiest place to get to if, like us, you're travelling independently in a hire car, but it is so worth the effort. You will spend a few hours in a glorious garden enjoying Theo Ferguson's witty, fact-filled, passionate talks, his wife Gloria's delicious food, and, above all, the spectacle of hundreds of hummingbirds. You will be enthralled by these fascinating creatures and come away from Yerette a changed person. I cannot recommend the place highly enough!!

Yerrrette is inspirational. If you are lucky you will hear some of Theo Fergusons personal life philosophy as well as understanding his profound commitment to hummingbird conservation and understanding.
We were immersed in hummingbirds at a physical and spiritual level - peaceful and beautiful experience of the colour and energy of these birds
Mr Nick of Sensational tours took us there. We were impressed with his communication about the tour and booking and he clearly can show you many sides of Trinidad

Although not an avid birdwatcher I do enjoy nature and beauty and this location certainly fits the bill.
The variety and quantity of wild hummingbirds is astounding.
As a bonus the talk by the creator Theodore imparted many details of the birds coupled with in depth knowledge of Trinidadians prior to the European invasion.
A fantastic place to visit
