Excellent, professional and knowledgeable
Ajayi_T, May 2023
Jeffrey was our driver. He was polite, professional and friendly. He was very helpful and patient in answering all our questions. He gave useful information about the geography, culture, diet and the people of Caribbean Islands. He also gave some useful information about what to do for our other activities.

Hayden Whiskey-The begin of every great tour
BradleyJ_D, Apr 2023
My visit to Trinidad was fantastic and a lot of it had to do with the Trinidad Highlights and Scenic Drive Tour done by the local guide Hayden Whiskey who is quite knowledgeable and passionate about his job. He took us around the city and explained the history of Port of Spain and the things within. The view at the lookout is magnificent and Maracas Bay is breathtaking, the Bake & Shark and other local street food is everything I expect and more. Thanks to Mr Whiskey for making the memories I have of Trinidad a great one and he will always be remembered when I think of my vacation there.

Hi Bradley, thank you for your review. We're happy to hear of your experience and glad you enjoyed it.
Not bad. Not great.
Scott_S, Mar 2023
An email from the tour company told me to meet them at a nearby hotel. I went there only to find no one. Back at the cruise terminal, I had to use my expensive international phone to call the company. They gave me another number to call. Finally, a man showed up and said he was my guide. He was a kind, good-hearted man, but didn't seem to know much about the history of the island. We spent a lot of time stuck in traffic and boucing along on potholes. Nice to see some of the island, but not the greatest tour.

The Most Hospitable Guide
Malecia_B, May 2022
Oric was such a great guide. We learmed so much about the island from him and he drove us to some amazing sights throughout Trinidad. He even ended up becoming our aiport driver once there because he was so nice and accomodating. I definitely recommend that you request him when doing the tour and if you need a driver to anywhere, he does it all.

Thank you so much for your review Malecia. We’re glad to hear you enjoyed your tour!
Jeffrey will help you taste real Trinidad
RussellEthan_J, May 2022
Loved this tour with my guide & driver, Jeffrey. I had cellphone network/roaming issues which led to a delayed start BUT the tour company was incredibly accommodating. When I got back to my Airbnb (which had Wi-Fi), I was able to connect with them and they VERY kindly worked with me. Jeffrey arrived at my Airbnb and our trip began. He explained the history of Port of Spain, showed me the city's very first street and we stopped so I could get a photo of the Brian Lara statue for my dad who is a huge fan. He showed me the beautiful houses along the Magnificent Mile before we headed north. Jeffrey was incredibly kind and stopped along the way so I could take photos and even stopped at what he told me was the best roti (it's like a very mild curry in a wrap) shop on the island so I could sample some of the best local food. He stopped at a couple lookout points for more photo opps and a chance to sample some of the local sweets (candies) at one of the street vendors along the way. Then we headed up to Maracas Bay. Stimulating conversation the whole way. Jeffrey was knowledgable, friendly, incredibly accommodating, and I wholeheartedly recommend booking a tour around the island with him.

Above and Beyond Tour Experience
Gary_S, Feb 2022
This was a perfect finale to our trip to T&T. Jeffrey picked us up at our hotel and took us on an informative tour of Port of Spain, including a walk through the botanical gardens which was lovely. Jeffrey was quite knowledgeable about the history and geography of the city and the country more generally. Then he drove us up to beautiful Maracas Beach, where we got bake and shark right on the water and it was delicious. Jeffrey went above and beyond, taking us to a grocery store to get some local hot sauce and then actually repackaging it for us into jars we could carry on to our flight, all before giving us a ride to the airport. It was very generous, and emblematic of the friendly and giving attitude we encountered all over Trinidad and Tobago.

Thank you for your review! We are happy to hear of your unique experience and will pass on the message to Jeffrey. Wishing you all the best.
A fun day
Malula_B, Mar 2021
We had a great time. Jeffrey, our tour guide, was very friendly and he was able to answer all our questions about buildings, plants and history of the city. It’s a highly recommended tour for those who want to know Port of Spain and its surroundings
Amazing tour with an amazing guide
Peter_K, Feb 2020
If you're in Trinidad, you need to go with Jeffrey. One of the best guides I've ever had. He makes the whole experience one to remember, with his detailed knowledge of Trinidad and can converse on any topic that interests you.

Thank you for leaving a review! We will pass your kind message on to Jeffrey. We’re glad you enjoyed your tour and hope you can come back again sometime!

Trinidad Port of Spain Area
Jim_C, Aug 2019
I travel for work and don’t always get to experience or enjoy the places I get to visit. This trip was perfect, Jefferey was fantastic and made the quick journey around informative and entertaining. I learned a lot , and I got to see parts of the area I would not had been able to. I booked on very short notice, late the night before, and the tour operators was not only accommodating but a pleasure to work with.

Keidi C, Dec 2017
Wanted to thank the Viator Representative that helped us with this booking. We were leaving the next day and she made this tour happen for us, so thank you again! The tour was great, very informative and private. It was my husband and myself and it was amazing. The driver made numerous stops, such as the cocoa plantation we actually got to see the cocoa up close and was able to taste it- awesome experience, maracas we stopped for the bake and shark- a must, and toured the city. Amazing experience would definitely recommend.

SportsFanTravel, Nov 2017
Firstly, I just want to say Errol was amazing - he's a lovely guy who clearly knows loads about his homeland and loves it. This tour though I felt a little rushed - I was expecting to get out of the car and look at different things in the city - rather than just do a driveby,...I know the traffic was bad, so maybe that was why? Everything else was fine - not overwhelmingly good - but definitely not bad. I feel they aren't quite set up for tourism here properly yet, so just starting to scratch the surface...

Harold W, Mar 2017
Norman our driver was very knowledgeable of Trini history, and buildings- We had a great time with him touring city of Port of Spain-seen a lot, bought souvenirs - went to Maracas Bay for lunch and ate at Richards shark and bake, delicious, would recommend to anyone to ask for Norman to take Trinidad highlights and scenic drive tour.
