David was amazing at communicating before we arrived (including changing dates due to the British Airways strike!), and was only too pleased to customise our day for the experience we wanted. Other tour operators were either going to lump us in with another group, or seemed to be just copying and pasting information. With David this was very much OUR tour, and nothing felt rushed or like it was too much trouble. I’m an introvert, so it was great feeling relaxed enough to have honest conversations with him about the island and the people. My recommendation is go early during your trip so you can make notes for local places to visit later on, and not to be shy about asking for anything you want to include.read less

I did some research on tours and came across The Grand Circle Island Tour and saw really great reviews but was a little skeptical about being by myself and doing a tour with a strange man in an Island however I decided to anyway nd let me tell you, I had a BLAST! David made me feel very safe and comfortable and we had so much in common after chatting I realized we were both black belts in Karate. The tour was so beautiful and I really my time on the Island, I highly recommend anyone visiting to do this tour, he is the best on the Island!!! Thank you so much David for making my trip to Tobago the most memorable, you are a remarkable young man!read less

We booked the tour before leaving the UK and all communication with David before and after arriving was excellent.
This tour is like no other tour. There are no time constraints or specific schedule as such to the day, it just flows.
You see the best that the island has to offer and this is down to David. He is so enthusiastic about the Island and it shows. He has great knowledge of the island and about so many other things. He is a great communicator and good company very friendly and approachable. It was more like meeting up with a friend for the day than going out on a tour. I am so very glad that we found Island Girl Tours as the whole day was amazing. We swam in fantastic secluded beaches, visited mangroves with not a soul in site, ate 'doubles', saw such beautiful scenery and wildlife and just generally had the most brilliant day.
Thank you David! 🙂read less

My friends and I booked the Caribbean coast tour to do some snorkelling and it was just amazing. We didn't have a car and David also organised a pick up and drop off for us that which was very impressive because he didn't have to do that for us. We were taken to 3 different spots by captain Jason, who was very informative about the history of the island and the history of the different sites. At no point did we feel rushed while we were swimming and watching the marine life. After the snorkelling we were taken dolphin watching and then to No Man's Land for lunch. I will totally book with this tour operator again because, although I didn't get to personally meet David, I was very pleased by his professionalism and also his accommodating nature. If you're looking for a tour operator to do something fun in Tobago, look no further than islandgirl tours! It's great!read less

From the very beginning, working with Island Girl Tours is a more comfortable, exciting, adventurous, fun experience than if I had planned all the details it myself.
With David’s charisma, friendliness, personalized attention, and genuine well-wishing for his guests’ ENTIRE experience, it’s easy to see why he has the #1 tour on the island!
He even takes amazing photos and videos to keep the memories while we savored the moments.
David — within the first hour of meeting, I knew we’d be friends for life.
I’m a big fan of Island Girl Tours and I know anyone would agree!read less

David did such an excellent job taking us around and giving us a real sense of the beauty of the island. He personalized the trip for us and made sure our preferences were highlighted. Beautiful beaches, boat rides, snorkeling in Speyside, and a fabulous lunch were just a few of the highlights from our day. One of the best parts is he really makes it feel like a cool road trip with friends. He is an excellent, accommodating host. I would whole-heartedly recommend the tour and all of the Island Girl Services.read less

Dave was amazing and very friendly. Dave was very knowledgable about the history and culture of Tobago in Trinidad.

He was an attentive, engaging, informative host who selected key sites for us to visit. He readily adapted to the pace of our group--allowing for greater or lesser time at certain areas--and helped us take some great photos! We also enjoyed his lunch selection at Jemma's Treehouse. For our second excursion, we attended the Castara Bonfire and had dinner at Cascreole. Again, a thoroughly enjoyable outing with an excellent meal. We look forward to visiting Tobago again and booking another excursion with David and Island Girl Tours!read less
The Best Tour Ever Let me begin by saying I am not even sure...read moreLet me begin by saying I am not even sure I can eloquently write how amazing this tour was. First off, my friend and I decided last minute to go to Trinidad and Tobago and it was from December 26th to January 1st. When I first found this tour it was booked and so I figured we will have to find something else to do. My friend still went ahead and contacted David and David being the exceptional guide he is told us he was booked but he will ask the person who booked him for the private tour if he didn't mind if we joined. Well thank God he didn't mind because that was the best 11-12 hours spent. We were not rushed, it was not a boring drive and we saw hidden gems that no other tour guide would take you too. He also spoke to my friend and I and asked about dietary preferences (I am vegetarian and he accommodated me-- actually he is vegetarian too so he understands). He is well versed on Tobago and knows the island inside out. He took us to the best place to eat lunch, provided towels, water, juices, drinks etc. He is beyond professional, shows up on time and gives you way more than you paid for. I highly recommend this tour first and then you can map out the rest of your days. He went above and beyond for us, picked us up from the airport and dropped us off and also told us what to do the next day and arranged it all. He is one amazing tour guide and the reviews don't lie. This is The Man for Tobago. And just to add the bonus: David takes photos along the way and adds it to his stories and tags you with the places where you're at so you have it to remember. In the end all the photos are sent to you and to me pictures are worth way more than anything as they are time stamps to your experience of life... and who doesn't want to remember their travels. I can't say enough.read less

So, besides having a full day of adventure, beauty, and great food, we also had the pleasure of great conversation and sharing. Perhaps because he is Canadian and Trinny, he really knows how to marry a well crafted, substantive experience with a free wheeling, spontaneous adventure. Don’t even think about using any other guide. Just call David, tell him what kind of experience you want, and he’ll exceed your expectations.read less

During the Covid shut down and borders being closed, my family and I still got to enjoy the views and learn a few secrets of our sweet sister Isle- Tobago! I thought I knew Tobago, but David at Island Girl Tours really showed me that I knew nothing of the island. My knowledge of the island is little when compared to him. He was very kind, professional and knowledgeable! He knows EVERYONE and can be very talkative or he will leave you to your thoughts, he is fine with either way. He took everything into consideration when on tour, and if necessary, he split the tour into a couple days at our request. Will tour again soon! Thanks Island Girl Tours for really putting forth for a great experience for my family and I!read less

David knew that I was not a first-timer, so he set up an itinerary of some pretty cool hidden gems around the Island, that definitely impressed me. We set out for Main Ridge from Castara, and spent the morning exploring the forest. From there, we continued around the Island, making all kinds of different stops that the average tourist would never see (but they are secret, so you’ll have to ask David to show you ). Lunch at Jemma’s treehouse restaurant was delicious, and the rest of the day went by so quickly, with another set of unique and interesting stops along the way. I’m going to be writing a full blog post on the experience, but I just wanted to post this quick review in the mean time. Island Girl Tours is the best tour company on the Island, and I will 100% be recommending David to anyone heading that way. Thanks David!read less

Because it was the carnival season, finding a place to stay was proving difficult and David was kind enough to allow our group to stay on his property. While there, he educated us on Tobago and its history. He's extremely knowledgeable and it became very obvious that he cares deeply about Tobago and its people. Ontop of his guided tours, he gave us some impromptu tours of the island during Carnival. His approach to introducing you to Tobago felt more like a personal experience and when my partner proposed to me on this Trip he even celebrated with us! He's an all around good soul and I would highly recommend him. Even if it's just for some company.read less

Our first tour was of the Cocoa Estates coca farm where we enjoyed a guided tour through the grounds this trip also included a small waterfall and tour of the fort in Scarborough. Our second trip out with David was to Bucoo reef/Nylon pool/ No mans land aboard Captain Romeos Sugar Lips boat - included great snorkelling and swimming. Our last adventure with David was booked was the 8-9hr tour. David took us to many spots on the island including both famous tourist stops and also spots off the route of most tours. I would highly recommend touring with David and booking ahead before leaving Canada was easy - David was always early for hotel pick up and very accomodating - as well as enthusiastic, fun and an excellent guide.read less

I had a few reservations prior to the tour and was a little worried because of things that happened on a previous tour in Trinidad that left me somewhat "wounded". He called prior to my tour with him and some friends and assured me that I had NOTHING to worry about and that he would accommodate us accordingly. WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME! Although the 3 of us were pretty different, he was a magician at making it all work. He is AMAZING!read less

We were picked up from our hotel and first stop was cocktails at Castara Retreats,which has an amazing location above the bay and built around nature as a massive tree house. We watched the spectacular sunset and then drove down to the Bay for dinner at the beach front resturant, Cascreol. The food was amazing, we had baked fish in coconut sauce. After dinner came the Steel drums, who were fantastic. David arranged for my wife to light the first bonfire of the night. He has all the contacts. We could have stayed all night dancing to the DJ but left around 11pm as we had an early flight next day. Again David was most obliging to our needs and drove us back to our hotel. This is the only night tour you will find and we were fortunate to have met David to arrange everything safely.

A true token of unhindered nature, it gives you the feeling of an authentic island life. From our many forts, rainforests, rivers, waterfalls and mountains, to a wide variety of secluded beaches. Come and get lost in the real Caribbean.
