I was glad to see Fitzroy Quamina has received such good reviews, because he was a great guide. He picked us up in Parlatuvier, and took us down the Gilpin Trail, a muddy but only slightly rough hike. We saw 5 species of hummingbirds, two...More

Don’t waste your money on Tobago - the pristine island that once was. Tragic! We spent about a week in Tobago in early August 2017. What a disappointment: Angel reef and Buccoo reef are dead. Largest brain coral in the world? Peeled off like an...More

Had a fabulous walk - guided by Junior Thomas from Unique Tours. Was a quiet time - I wouldn't recommend if your visit clashed with cruise trip visits! Really enjoyed the serenity, birdlife and awe inspiring bamboo.

Walked some of the Gillian trail in a group. It's like travelling to prehistoric times and there's plenty of wildlife to see and hear along the way. Definitely recommend leaving the road and walking one of the trails.
