ABOUT THE HOST
Mandated by the former Tourism and Industrial Development Company of Trinidad and Tobago (TIDCO), The Trinidad and Tobago Tour Guides’ Association (TTTGA) was established in October 1997. The Association under Trade Union regulations has the vision of standardising the service of our local Tour Guides as well as the information being disseminated, thereby increasing their professionalism and, by extension, uplifting the nation’s tourism product.
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
We start the day with a Central Experience, visiting the 85’ Hanuman Murti, the largest such murti outside of India, before going on to the Temple in the Sea, a Hindu pilgrimage sight built by one man, Siewdass Sadhu, over a period of 25 years in testament to his religion. After being denied the opportunity to build the temple on land near the water, he decided to build the temple in the sea! We then head to the Caroni Bird Sanctuary for a 4PM guided tour by boat through the Caroni Swamp, the second largest mangrove wetland in Trinidad and home to our national bird, the Scarlet Ibis. Witness the return of these beautiful birds, as waves of red light up the sunset sky as they alight on the surrounding mangrove to roost for the night.
