The 12 Hour Grand Circle Island Tour

our signature island tour Experience is far from the typical version offered by other tour operators and hotels. Fondly regarded as the "Dawn til Dusk" tour (10 to 12 hrs!) this customized adventure is our longest and most extensive tour, and the ultimate way to see and explore the Entire island paradise of Tobago IN a vehicle!
Looking for our 8 hour tour? See here.

experience the whole island

The sheer length of this tour provides the perfect opportunity to fully engross yourself in the true and genuine Tobago, local style. You will delight in the awe-inspiring sightseeing along both the Atlantic and Caribbean coasts.

See it all from the luxuriant rainforests to magnificent secluded beaches, invigorating waterfalls, and commemorated sites, where you can revel in the cool island breeze and the captivating panoramic views.

Popular tour themes include:

  • Sun, Sea & Snaps – picture-perfect views and postcard beaches as you swim and snorkel for as long as you like!
  • Outdoor Adventurer – go off the beaten track, and jump into Argyle waterfall, and a couple others, take the stairway to heaven to lovely Pirate’s Bay
  • The Call of Nature – bird-watching, picnicking and hiking in the oldest protected rainforest in the western hemisphere. 
  • History Buff – focusing on the island’s forts, colonisation, cultural developments, and how these have shaped today’s economic landscape, political outlook and general culture of Tobago.
  • Foodie’s Delight – sample ‘Trinbago’ street food like doubles and bake and shark, enjoy wood-fired clay oven breads (when available), coconuts, peanut punch, ice cream and local wines, eat seasonal fruit right from the tree.
  • Lesser Visited – deserted, secluded beaches, hidden trails, rivers and waterfalls, caves and amazing restaurants that only locals know about.

Or create your own theme – let us know what you are most interested in and we’ll build a more personalised itinerary around you, while keeping the majority of standard sites and locations of the tour. Anything goes and is accommodated for on this super long, chock-full day of adventure!
