Excellent trip well worth the time and effort. Los Exploradorestt did a GREAT job in putting this trip together. Everyday was totally enjoyed and all the activities, both planned and unplanned, will be forever remembered and appreciated.
Thank you, Mr. Mohammed, for your review.
Los Exploradorestt Tous Ltd's service is exceptional. When I booked the Avocat Waterfall Tour, I honestly did not know what to expect. I was in Trinidad on business and snuck in some fun. I was also traveling alone, which I do often, and never know how these tours will go. Happily, the professionalism combined with Dominic's courteousness, kind touches and knowledge of the Island and nature made for a truly enjoyable experience. Dominic was there to pick me up promptly at 7AM. That does not seem like a big deal, right. Well, traffic in Trinidad is indescribable. A 10 minute drive turns into one hour because the traffic is so bad during the day. To ensure that he was not late, he got to my bed and breakfast at 5 AM and waited, so that we could start on time. I know he was there that early because the owner of the bed and breakfast had a conversation with him while he waited. So, that was the first example of the service.
When Dominic got out of the car to greet me, I immediately knew that I was in good hands. Not only was he professionally dressed, his manner was respectful and warm. He prepped me on our itinerary and made sure I was buckled in safely before we left. Safety is priority and he and his team are all first aid trained. Nice touches included the thoughtfulness in the giving of a sunhat, which I used all day and having water and fresh fruits for the ride and hike.
Dominic pointed out important sites, shared some of the Island's history and described various plants and tress along our drive. We stopped for photos at Maracas Lookout, Maracas Beach and Las Cuevas Beach before folks arrived and so it was like having the beaches to yourself. We also stopped for fresh coconut water in Blanchisseuse village and checked in at the local police station before heading toward the hike route - safety again.
The hike itself was not too challenging. Expect to get wet even if you don't stand under the waterfall. You cross the shallow water at several points during the walk. You definitely need closed shoes/sneakers with good grip. Flip flops won't work. I had decent walking sandals but I recommend light hiking shoes because it can get slippery in certain areas. I can't remember how long we walked but it wasn't bad at all - I am not an experienced hiker and over 40. The waterfall view is absolutely worth it! I had some anxiety about standing underneath it but Dominic was patient and guided me over to it. Best massage ever (from the water and not Dominic :-))!
Our next stop was Maracas Beach for delicious bake and shark and a dip in the beautiful blue water (I can't swim) and relaxing time soaking up the sun before heading on the road back. We made one final stop for souvenir shopping - mostly handmade jewelry and no pressure to buy. By this time there was traffic going back but Dominic was patient and safe getting me back to my bed and breakfast.
If you can't tell, I highly recommend this tour company. I had the pleasure of working with Dominic but I'm sure his other tour guides are just as fabulous. Dominic ensured that I was comfortable without being overbearing and he demonstrated that this is more than just a job for him. You won't be disappointed if you chose Los Exploradorestt Tours Ltd. This tour company is a big reason I am planning another trip to Trinidad and will definitely work with this company. Thank you for making my time here so enjoyable, Dominic!
The performance and planning of Los Exploradorestt on our trip to Mermaid pools would be rated as outstanding. We took kids along and all had a fantastic trip from beginning to end. The hike leaders were on time, knowledgeable and extremely hospitable catering for the needs of every individual attending this hike. Los Exploradorestt is an impressive group and I am definitely looking forward to our next adventure.
