Besides beaches and water-related activites, what recommendations do you have for sightseeing in Tobago? Are there any good, reputable local tour companies / guides that you recommend? Is it safe and easy to explore on your own?

Thanks

Just getting a taxi to do you an island tour up their North-East coast
to Charlotteville
lunch somewhere at Charlotteville on Man-o-War Bay
and then back down to Scarborough along the South Coast
much of it thru rain forest and trees
should just about blow your mind, as it did mine.
And I live in these islands.


Take your camera.
Much of the trip is on roads running about 200 ft. above sea-level
and thus providing great scenic views of bays and headlands, all along the way.


Who's going to take you?
I'd suggest engaging the first clean-cut decent lookin taxi guy and talk to him nice,
arrange a price in US$ and go for it.

If he quotes you a big price, he's talking Trinidad dollars, which is TT$6 = $1 US.
Got that?

So if he tells you six hundred dollars mon, dat's 600 dollars HIS money
which equals 100 dollars Real Money. Don't get suckered!

Not that that's the rate, but I'm trying to make it relevant for you, OK?

Go forth and enjoy. Don't forget the camera.
