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
The Pitch Lake is another wonder of the world! It is the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world. It is about 40 ha and about 75m deep. The Pitch Lake is the source of asphalt used in the paving of roads and highways throughout the world. After a 45min walk about the lake, we head to Debe village which is known for its main strip of food stalls that specialize in Indian delicacies, that is a must to experience. We end the day tour with our Central Experience where you will visit the 85’ Hanuman Murti, the largest outside of India; 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.
