We have never been to Trinidad, so we wanted to see the city we were staying in. Since we don't sit at the beach, we didn't want to spend the time and money for a beach tour, to be there for an hour or so then leave. This tour satisfied both desires in one trip.
Errol was our tour guide and he is so knowledgeable about the island. We toured Port of Spain and saw the Red House and many other historic sights. Errol even knew of the events happening around town that week to recommend other exciting things to do.
We then ventured over the mountains to Maracas Bay beach. It is awesome. While there, we had a chance to try Bake and Shark! Again, Errol knew exactly where to go. We then ventured back to town. It was a great 1/2 day trip and well worth it.
