This was our 1st trip to Tobago and wanted to see the island. We booked three trips with Island Girl Tours - the Round the Island, Bioluminescence and Buccoo Reef. Davids knowledge and love of the island shines through with his tours and we were taken to places that you definitely wouldn't have gotten to on the normal tourist trips that the hotel tried to sell. He has a passion for making sure you have the best time ever and will make sure you get the best day ( and even messaged us to warn us when a rain storm was heading our way from the other coast line ) If you want to get a real feel for the island, then Island Girl Tours is definitely the one to use.read less

A real authentic experience, fantastic lunch at Jemma's and so many 'secret' gems like hidden waterfalls and secluded beaches.

Memory of a lifetime!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

In fact we won’t call David our guide but our new life long friend. I am originally from Trinidad, residing in New York City for over 20 years now. It’s a joy to be able to bring my husband Joe and son Jaden to explore my country as much as we can.
This New Years we booked 5 days in magical Tobago. After reading amazing reviews on Tripadvisor and having an I risk what’s app conversation with David. I knew my family , myself and dear friends we brought with us on holiday will be in great hands. So we booked his The Grand Circle Island Tour (12 hour ALL INCLUSIVE).
David took us on off beaten roads through the north coast that lead us to gorgeous black sand beaches, quaint fishing villages, stunning waterfalls. We followed his advice and did not eat at Gemmas, a popular location for tourist but at small restaurant ran by a beautiful lady overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Her cooking was authentic and views beautiful.
Lots of swimming , exploring and historical facts about Tobago. David, truly is passionate about his company and curating intimate itineraries for his guests.

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

He completely customized our tour based on what we wanted to do, even down to our choice of drinks for the day. I am not typically a tour person, and one of our group members was local, yet we were all completely blown away with what a great time we had. I’m so happy we met David on the first day of our trip to Tobago, as he made himself available for questions and guidance the rest of our trip. To top it off, we enjoyed our time so much we all hung out together on the last night of our trip and had a great time BBQing and partying on the beach. We spoke to some other travelers along the way and quickly learned that we made the right choice, from the hospitality to the price we paid. David is a gem and I can’t recommend him highly enough. If you’re still thinking about it- just do it!read less

David knows his island inside out and is the only person I know who can make history lessons fun and engaging that you just want to keep on knowing and asking more questions. The sites were amazing, his made to order lunch in the forest and the drinks and snacks and conversation was just top notch. I think he is the best guide in Tobago! I will definitely be back.You want a great informative tour that is also fun and unrushed? Check out Island Girl Tours. If only it went higher than 5 stars, I would give him 10!read less

His meticulous attention to detail reflects in his BnB, his property, and most definitely his tours. David immediately felt like a long lost friend and he went out of his way to give us the Caribbean experience of a lifetime.
From a surprise late night giant sea turtle birthing to boat trips and snorkeling in some of the most beautiful water you’ll ever see, from delicious seafood to liming the night away to the sweet rhythm of a steel drum, David will take great pride and care to make sure you have an experience you won’t forget!

I took my girlfriend and her friends who’d never been to experience the magic of Tobago. Naturally, I’m not inclined to book “touristy” activities while there. But by gf found this and I’m so happy she did! From the moment you start communicating with David to make arrangements, it’s absolutely evident that his focus is to ENSURE you have a fabulous time! He is an excellent host/guide, which clearly emanates from his personal values. We had an awesome day, which far exceeded my expectations and made a great friend.

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

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.
Would recommend Island girl to anyone visiting Tobago.read less

I have visited Tobago on previous occasions and thought I knew the island pretty well but David showed us places I never before considered or even knew existed.
Before we arrived in Tobago David and I had discussions on what my family wanted to see or experience and he created the perfect itinerary for our trip.
We really appreciated David's flexibility because some of the places we visited are so lovely that we wanted to spend more time in certain locations and this resulted in the the tour being adapted as we went along, to accommodate as much as possible, without missing out on other things. We actually went way over the scheduled time that David joined us for dinner and drinks late into the evening!
My family felt so comfortable with David that it was like spending time with an old friend. Nothing was too much for David and we laughed so much.
If we could rate the Grand Circle Island Tour higher than excellent then it would be simply AWESOME. Thank you so much David for all you did for us.read less

There is no better guide than David, he is knowledgeable, professional, kind and always on time!!! I travelled with friends while covid is a concern and he always made sure we felt safe and comfortable and let us know what we were able and not able to do. My one friend is from Trinidad and has visited Tobago many times and was shocked at all he didn’t know because David took the time to show us hidden gems, beautiful beaches and the best food spots. He made sure to tell us all about the history as well. What I truly loved was his sense of community with everyone on the island and making sure to recommend the best local food places and/or places to visit. He loves the island and community and it shows with every tour he takes you on. Do not go to Tobago without booking a tour with David. Next time I visit, I will 100% contact him as he goes out of his way to make your experience memorable.read less

Our first night we enjoyed a Steel Band performance, on the beach of Castara to enjoy rum punch for a bonfire burn. This was not a touristy event, lots of locals liming, dancing, and enjoying the surf and fire. The next day was an all inclusive tour that spanned 12 hours. David greeted us with 6 beautiful foil packets that was to be our breakfast. Bake and buljol. Delicious salt fish wrapped in a pillowy fried bread. It made the perfect nosh! Then we hiked through White Mangroves and captured images of many of the islands gorgeous waterfowl. The opportunity to swim under the waterfall and enjoy its cool waters, was a blessing! David added personal touches of bottled water, rum punch, towels for the water adventures. David is knowledgeable on history, folklore, birds, plants and culture. There was so much to see and he did his very best to show it all! The highlight of the day was a delicious meal of Kingfish, cassava pie, madras lentils, pickled vegetables, & fresh salad at Jemma's Trehouse. The flavors enveloped all the senses and embraced the soul like a warm hug. Hands down THE best Carribean soul food, I have ever experienced. And it is a true experience. Looking out at the surf enjoying the cool breeze, is pure bliss. The most soulful moment of our adventures was a rare sighting of a Leatherback Turtle laying eggs in the day time. I was so awestruck I was moved to tears. I will never forget that moment, ever. We did 3 tours with Island Girl Tours, never have we done a tour and been treated so warmly. They will always be our go to when in Tobago. You will enjoy NOT being hustled, rushed and grouped with other tourists. Everything customized and personalized for your group. And new bonds and friendships are formed. We will be back again. Much love to David and Anna from Island Girl Tours!read less
Perfect family adventure!! If I was to say David was a great host...read moreIf I was to say David was a great host I would be putting him down. He was great from the moment of booking, making sure we had anything we would need for the day, customised the tour so our toddler could come along but still have us a real adventure. He really went the extra mile at every opportunity.
Took us for doubles first thing (which are delicious!!) and had a story for every road, why things were the way they were on the island. The tour consists of little hikes and waterfalls that are safe wet exciting, our daughter managed to walk all day across the rocks and David helped us climb the rock faces and steep tracks with her. We could have gone higher through the levels if we were without her but I was still able to dive off the waterfalls and get what felt like a full experience.
If you're into food, he'll also take you around plantations and take you to pick local fruits off tree to taste. Had some delicious guavas, giant star fruit, coconuts, almonds straight off trees and also took us to two amazing authentic local restaurants through the day. Taught us about bread fruit and took us to get bread fruit pie which is phenomenal!!
When the day went on, he knew we weren't to be available for Sunday school so found us a bar / restaurant to see a steelband play along with a beachside bbq, this wasn't an added extra. He did this out of his own time and even drove us all home late so we didn't have to get a taxi - yet again going above and beyond for us.
The next day he took us to pigeon point with some amazing white sand beach and guided us on the nylon pools tour. Got us a discount on jet skis and looked after our daughter on the boat so me and my wife could go out and jetski without any worry. Jemima (my daughter) absolutely loved him and I couldn't have felt happier to leave her with him.
Also a huge highlight as my wife broke her phone while on holiday, David takes photos of everything and send you all of them at the end of the day. Which means you get to get on with the day and not have to worry about stopping all the time to take pictures!!
When we come back to tobago in a year or so we'll definitely give him a call. Whether that is for a tour or just to meet for a catch up over a meal. David really made us all feel like we became friends by the end of the day.read less
