    Lovely tour. Highlight was the view from Fort George as well as the time spent at Maracas Bay. Enya our driver was great!

    My partner and I went to Trinidad to celebrate his birthday and my baby moon (Aug arrival) and I thought the best way to see the city on day 1 would be a city tour. Jenelle was our guide and she was very kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. I would highly recommend this tour and requesting her personally for yours!

    My husband and I visited Trinidad for the first time on a cruise ship stop. We decided to book the Island Experiences tour that included Port of Spain, Maracas Beach, and the monastery. We were the only ones on the tour with our guide, Janelle. Janelle was fantastic. We saw and learned so much about Trinidad. She occasionally stopped the car to show us something interesting or explain something to us. We did so much more than we would have been able to do on our own or on a large group tour. At the Maracas Beach overlook, she explained all the snacks for sale at the vendor stands. We tried a couple, and really loved the Chow. I'm definitely going to make some at home. Maracas Beach was very nice, and we had a fantastic Bake and Shark sandwich at the best stand on the beach. The monastery was interesting, and the yogurt made by the monks was tasty. If we ever get to Trinidad, I will definitely book another tour with Island Experiences (and hopefully Janelle).

    Denton was our tour guide from Island Experiences. He was awesome and extremely knowledgeable on island life.

    Jay was our guide for the day and she did an excellent job leading our tour. We selected a private tour and she was very accommodating to make sure our requests for the tour was incorporated in the day. She provided a tour of Port of Spain providing a lot of background information and showing us the highlights of the city from a historical as well as a modern perspective. We traveled to several sites to get a look out view of the port and then onto Maracas Beach. We had an amazing lunch along the way and spent some time walking the beach. She included a trip to the monastery and returned us to the port on time for our cruise ship departure. Her passion for Trinidad and knowledge were a big part of the tour. Thanks for a great time.

    Today my wife, Sylvia, and I completed the Trinidad highlights and monastery tour with Janelle. We have been on many tours over the years and this tour stood out as one of the best we've taken. Touring with Janelle was like riding around with an old friend or family member. She is very knowledgeable and as friendly as it gets. Janelle even took a slight detour in San Juan so I could see the house I stayed in many years ago on previous visits. Showing Sylvia the highlights of Port of Spain and surrounding areas and keeping her so easily engaged was handled with ease by Janelle. We hated for the day to end!! She is a credit to your company and Trinidad. Thanks very much, Michael McGrath

    I would highly recommend this tour. I was visiting family for the holidays with my bf and wanted to get a quick tour that could fully give him an idea of what Trinidad has to offer. This tour did not disappoint- had minimal communication prior to booking and all of my questions were promptly answered. A little bit of community, history, Port Of Spain and Maracas beach! Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit and your appetite! I was picked up promptly from the hotel and taken to a few select spots around the city. I got to view places I wouldn’t normally visit and all from the comfort of an air conditioner SUV. If felt more like a private tour and I was happy that I found it!

    Bob is a great guy! My friend and me were picked up on time at our hotel and he showed us the Port of Spain city, Fort George and Maracas beach. A very good driver and he knows the city very well, showing us the best parts. One of the highlights of our tour was Fort George, were you can see the whole city and take a lot of beautiful photos.

    This tour was perfect for the 1-day we were visiting Port of Spain. The guide covered so much in just 5-6 hours, plus she was wonderful about teaching the history. We were picked up at our hotel and began the tour right away. After the tour we asked if we could purchase an airport transfer without a booking and the company/guide was so accommodating to help us out. Highly recommend this highlights tour if you have a short stay in POS and want to cover a lot of ground.
