Never been to Trinidad. We will be there in 2 weeks.  Does anyone know if we can get a taxi or excursion at the dock or do we have to take a ship's excursion?

Thanks for any advice

There are many posts on many threads explaining as to why one must NOT go alone.

A ship tour will have armed guards, the places visited would have been ‘cleared’ prior to arrival by armed personnel.  Then armed guards will protect the areas visited.  Tourist will be shown only the sanitised version of the island, with the tour guides sticking to the Government script.

Consider taking hand sanitizer and plastic gloves and try not to touch, eat or drink anything while ashore.  On returning to the ship clean shoes throughly immediately on boarding.

Shop only within the secure port area.

PS

Don’t use your credit or bank card while ashore, only take cash.
