But after going on the grand circle island tour, I learnt more about the island’s culture than ever before. I saw things like the massive waterfalls that I didn’t even know existed!
Wonderful, immersive and beautiful experience. I went with my boyfriend and friends and it was a fun experience for all of us!read less

David is a punctual-well mannered-highly knowledgeable of all things Tobago type of individual. My fiancée and I enjoyed not only his tour but his company and kind spirit. We toured Lover's Bay and Pirate's Bay enjoying a short, but informative journey by boat from the Charlotteville Beach. Lover's bay or Pink Sand Beach did not disappoint. Beautiful, pristine, and generally undisturbed this beach was a highlight of our tour. David provided snorkeling equipment allowing us to view the coral formations in great detail. After this, it was a short enjoyable inflatable hotdog ride across the calm waters of Charlotteville Bay to Pirate's Bay. At Pirate's Bay we were treated to a delicious meal of freshly caught Benito and King Fish grilled to perfection right on the beach by our boat captain and "personal chef" Sonson. The grilled fish was part of an overall delightful lunch that included homemade macaroni pie, vegetable rice and also barbecued chicken. The afternoon was completed with an afternoon lounge near the shoreline and a quick final dip and snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Pirate's Bay. Overall we fully recommend David and Island Girl Tours for a truly unforgettable once in a lifetime Tobago experience!!!read less
An amazing informative Tour of Tobago We had such a great time on The Grand Circle...read moreWe had such a great time on The Grand Circle Island tour with David and can now fully understand why he has so many 5 star reviews.
We chose this tour company because it said it tailors the day to what you enjoy doing and that is exactly what David does, we said that we like exploring and seeing the culture and that's what we did.
From the day we booked this tour David kept in touch discussing what we would like to do and on the day we were picked up at 7am and he took us for doubles for breakfast first which were delicious, then to the Mangroves, waterfalls, and lots of other places all the way round the Island, some of them were where other tourist companies don't go, we stopped and had coconuts, the lunch we had was amazing and all the time you could tell how much he genuinely wanted to please, we were never rushed from place to place like we have previously experienced with other tours.
We couldn't believe it when he said at one point we had been out 9 hours, (time flies when you are enjoying yourself) and that's what we did for the 12 hours we were on this tour, he took some lovely photos of us at different places and sent them to us so we now have these to remind us of our amazing tour of Tobago.
I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tobago.
Thank you Davidread less

David and Kristen are wonderful people who took care of us from first thing in the morning until drop off at dusk. They make sure the tour is tailored to what you want to see and do whilst making sure you're well fed and topped up with drink ☺️
Having grown up on the island David is very informative about the local area, we went to bays and waterfalls that I'm sure we would have missed otherwise
It really was an unforgettable day that I'll cherish for years to come. Thankyou Island girl tours, hopefully we'll be back one day!read less

Best guide we've ever had - the tours are amazing! David is not only an amazing guide, but a great...read moreDavid is not only an amazing guide, but a great person to be around! His communication is impeccable and super friendly/welcoming.
We arrived in Tobago in the afternoon on January 9th and hadn't had any tours planned. We honestly didn't even think about researching anything for our trip and decided to play it by ear. We found David's tour and contact information the following day and reached out. He responded quite promptly and we were taken out the next day for the Nylon Pool tour. David and Kristen picked us up, gave us a little tour and some information about Tobago on the way to Pigeon Point. They pointed out a local hangout near our resort that was going to be happening that evening and recommended that we go (we popped by in the evening and there was some live music, bonfire and good times!). Kristen was with us during the this tour and was very lovely and friendly! Everyone was super hospitable and it felt like we just spent the day with friends 🙂
A few days later, we went and did the Island Tour with David and another group. We stopped off and had some delicious doubles for a breakfast snack before heading to the Tobago Plantation. We explored the Mangroves and it was a crazy site to see! Afterwards, we made our way towards Fort King George to walk around and explore. We ended up finding an abandoned ambulance graveyard which was pretty nuts but super cool at the same time. Unfortunately the weather the day of our tour wasn't great and it was raining quite a bit. We decided to end the tour early because we wouldn't have been able to experience Tobago in all it's glory and to how David wanted to show us it. This is something that was super appreciated since most guides would want you to carry on - but his love of the island wouldn't allow it. Whenever we come back to Tobago, we'll definitely be doing the tour again to make sure we see the island in all it's glory.
I highly recommend David to anyone and everyone who visits Tobago!read less

This is by far the most amazing place we have ever stayed. We took a tour with David's company, Island Girl Tours, and this top notch tour was the highlight of our trip. So professional, informative, warm and friendly. We saw so much beauty and had so much fun. We felt like we were spending a day out with family, instead of being on a tour. We highly recommend this tour and Breath of Heaven, David is absolutely the best!read less

David contacted me shortly after to give me an overview of the tour and to ask if I had any particular interests. This initial contact made a favourable impression on me. He asked me to contact him when I arrived in Tobago.
Unfortunately, the tour had to be postponed due to the after effects of Storm Karen but David kept in regular touch by WhatsApp and phone to give me updates and to reschedule the tour date.
On the day of the tour David arrived punctually at 06:45 hrs and then took me on a tour that lasted nearly 12 hours. He gave me an initial overview of what we would be doing but as I had already see some of the scheduled sights David made some suggestions of other places that I might like to visit and amended the tour accordingly.
The hours flew by so quickly as we toured the islands. There are just so many magnificent beaches, viewpoints, buildings to see. I can see why people keep going back to Tobago. David seems to know someone in each village!! It was a great experience to have my own personal tour guide. If I wanted to stay longer or stop at any site it was not a problem. David's time scheduling is impeccable. At many of the places we were the only people there - it is so refreshing to go to a beach where there are only a couple of other people or to be able to go somewhere like Argyle Falls and to be be able to enjoy the view with just the sound of the waterfall and not have to share it with crowds of others.
David is very knowledgeable about the history, nature, history and culture of Tobago. He is so enthusiastic and is keen to show Tobago to others. He is funny, polite, flexible, professional and easy to talk to. As a mature female traveller, I felt very safe and comfortable in his company, it was like visiting with a good friend. I would have no hesitation in recommending his company to any solo female travellers.
I also went with David to Nylon Pool and once again I would highly recommend that you make the trip with him.
I had a fantastic time on both trips, David took some great photos and I will have lasting memories of my time in Tobago. David is the perfect tour guide and I would recommend that you sign up for his tours as soon as possible. Don’t think about it, just do it!!read less

We were taken to the most beautiful secluded coves for snorkelling with beautiful calm and clear water to see the coral.
As usual David was very knowledgable about the history of the different coves and the magnificent houses dotted on the hillside.
Lunch was delicious in the ‘secret location’ and the ride back on the speedboat followed by the dolphins was epic/exhilarating/awesome.

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

On the day of the tour David was on time for pickup, he was very warm, friendly and accommodating. He was very knowledgeable about the location of each waterfall and kept us all engaged with informative intelligent comversation about the falls and the legendary story of the "silk cotton tree". I was very impressed by the way he skillfully manuvered and guided us along the trails and the way we were allowed to stop of and purchase items on our journey. He even made an impromptu visit to the traditional dirt oven bakers in Castara. I would definitely do this tour again and would like to encourage anyone thinking og doing it to try it. It was an unforgettable experience.read less

David contacted us in advance and asked for preferences and was modeling everything of the tour to our needs. He arrived punctual and was a great guy from the beginning on. We had great conversations while he drove us around the island, handled us snacks when we needed them, and when he found out we liked something more, he changed the tour so we could enjoy it more.
We bathed in lonely waterfalls, we were relaxing on almost empty beaches, we asked a lot and he knew everything about this island. From tourists with sparse informations we became fans of Tobago with a good knowledge of were to go on the island.
Actually we became fans so much, we extended our stay for a week!read less

EVERYTHING is hastle-free and catered for you! David is a very organized, timely, fun-loving, intellectual that knows how to have a great time. He is extremely knowledgeable about Tobago and passionate about showing all it has to offer. He is a great ambassador of Tobago!
You simply have to tell him your needs/wants and leave it completely up to him to provide for you- this includes transport, towels, snorkeling gear, being taken to the the best food spots in Tobago, drinks and more drinks OF YOUR CHOICE, vibes, even intellectual, well-rounded conversations - all these things together make time disappear in the blink of an eye.
I highly recommend David and his tour company. We will definitely be back to experience more adventures with him.read less

I guess this is the laid back island life! David picked us up and we were having fun well before we arrived at Argyle Falls. The weather was great. The drive was calm. The views were tropical paradise. And then we arrived and started a gentle 15 minute walk to the falls. I'm not sure who David bribed, but the path was littered with tropical birds. The motmots and cocrico showed no fear of us! At one point, the bamboo arched above like the ceiling of a cathedral. And David was a wealth of knowledge about the flora and fauna. It turns out the Argyle Falls is more than the 3 pools it presents itself to be. I will be back! And definitely will try to get David again 😀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

Excellent street food both snacks and lunch. Saw some lovely hidden bays and thoroughly enjoyed in car conversations on a variety of topics.

I initially reached out on their website as the calendar online showed full and I was only in Tobago with my son for a few days. Within minutes David had made contact directly asking me what kind of excursion I was looking for, giving ideas and trying his best to make sure we would have a great time. That in itself earned the 5 stars! The hotel was useless in terms of information, but David was a fountain and really worked hard to create options for us. He arranged for us to do a Nylon Pool trip on one day, which was great fun.
In the end we booked an island tour. The day started amazingly and David was a font of knowledge about the island, the flora and fauna, the history - everything! Sadly the heavens opened and the mists rolled in and the tour quickly became a Bank Holiday trip being stuck in the car. David did the rarest of things! He stopped on the road and offered to call it a day and refund the money! As a charity worker who has limited funds, and only having a short time on the island, I was so grateful as we were able to use the money on our final day to splash out on a nice dinner before leaving.
David was the consummate professional and representation of Tobago. Definitely recommend him and will certainly contact him again if Im able to get us to Tobago again in the future.read less

David customized the tour based on each family member's interests, and he took us on a fantastic drive to many different sites around the island. We visited historic areas, tucked-away beaches, hiking spots, excellent restaurants for lunch and refreshment breaks, and hidden gems that we would have otherwise missed. The best part is that David seemingly knows everyone on the island, so we would stop and chat with the locals, and this really gave us a flavor for the island. This tour was the ideal way for us to get a feel for the island and learn where we wanted to spend extra time during the rest of the week. Highly recommended!!!read less

He even takes amazing photos and videos to keep the memories while we savored the moments.
