Voice of Travelers to Trinidad and Tobago

Great Ticket Deal

Last summer one of my friends came up with an airplane ticket offer to Trinidad and Tobago. We live in Italy so it would be a far destination, but still, made a choice to get the tickets, book a hotel and try out something new. We weren't wrong, we had the best experience ever. We got a great ticket deal, booked our tickets with Alitalia and were ready to go. For a flight so long, the on board organization they offered was excellent. Arrived in Trinidad and Tobago, rested a bit and then found a friendly local guide to guide us to all the amazing waterfalls and get tickets to all the local events going on at that time. Money spent on museum tickets were the best money ever spent. Had a little trouble with our return tickets but everything turned out alright.

Epic Carnival

Last February my family and I somehow decided to go on an adventure and decided that we would go to the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival. We quickly booked our tickets from Paris with Air France, had a little trouble finding a hotel since it was a little last minute. We got last minute plane tickets which were excellent since long flights are expensive. Somehow we had forgotten about the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival tickets and had to search locally. The friendly and helpful hotel staff somehow found us tickets from locals and we were very excited. The Carnival was unlike anything we've ever seen - extraordinary costumes, great music, lots of fun and games. Buying those plane tickets and carnival tickets was the best decision ever made.
