WHAT THEY SAY

Following a recommendation by some of our clients, we have decided to add this category to our site, so that we are able to publish notes left behind by those who have experienced the trails in Tobago.  Here is what some of them had to say!

"I had a great time on Tobago.  Everything was perfect and I couldn't wish for more.  You are a very good guide and very nice guy too!  I will recommend you to everyone I know and I wish you luck with your tour company" - D Lauzon, Canada (January 2002) Click here for a link to David's mini website where he describes his biking vacation in Trinidad and Tobago.

"A quick note to say thanks a bunch for showing me some of your trails last Thursday.  I had a great ride, and although the heat tried its best to wipe me out, I still feel pretty good at the end... I wish I'd gotten out the following day too.  You guys did a great job of being my guides for the afternoon and it was great to meet you both.  Any mountain biker who visits your island will miss out if they don't take advantage of your tour as there are some great climbs and even better technical descents.  If I know anybody coming to Tobago, I'd definitely tell them to look you up.  Thanks again for the tour, and if I'm back again, I'll be sure to look you up for a full week of riding" - S Crapper, Sheffield, England (May 2002)

 

"My wife (novice) and myself (intermediate) were delighted to be catered for to suit our needs.  The bikes provided were excellent and the tour guide provided an informative description of the island, its wildlife and history.  An excellent way to learn about the real Tobago.  Thanks for everything" - P & Y Herbert, Wales, UK (June 2002)

"Our guide was very helpful with an excellent knowledge of the trails.  He was well aware of the ability of the riders with him and so able to guide and help accordingly.  From my limited time, Tobago seems to have trails to excite and test the most experienced riders.  When Sean & Nigel led us down Tobago's trails it felt like we had known and ridden with them for years.  They guided with professionalism and an unbounded enthusiasm for the sport and Tobagonian countryside.  Thanks again" -  M Reuter, England (August 2002)

"Sean is a splendid fellow.  Tobago is the perfect place for mountain biking.  They would probably have invented it here if they hadn't been distracted by the scenery" - L Keogh,  Ireland (September 2002)

"Sean was a great rider and extremely nice and patient.  Tobago offers excellent trails, great elevations and views" -

P Herrig, USA (November 2002)

"Our guide was good, very informative and helpful.  It was very convenient to be picked up at our Hotel.  He was punctual and friendly.  I really enjoyed mountain biking in Tobago and would have liked to have done more.  Would probably prefer more trails and less road.  There are plenty of steep hills whether off-road or on-road.  Nice finish to the ride was the cold drink and Muslei bar" - E Stewart, Scotland (December 2002)

"We would highly recommend Mountain Biking Tobago to inexperienced or casual recreational riders as well as experienced riders.  We are casual riders and the route and pace that they selected for us was challenging and fun.  There were pleasant surprises around every bend.  Sean and Nigel's personality played a key role in our memorable experience" - H & H Bailey, Missouri, USA (December 2002)

"Having biked in Grenada, found the trails in Tobago more varied and challenging.  When on road, traffic is light and considerate of cyclists.  Sean's bikes are the best available on the island and he's a reliable and interesting guide.  Would definitely recommend him to friends" - J Perrins & J Smith, UK (March 2003)

"The ride was great with lots of scenery around every corner.  What a fun way to get outside and see a part of Tobago that you otherwise would miss.  The guides were friendly and helpful.  They offered encouragement and compliments.  This was my first time doing any real mountain biking and the trails were a great challenge" - J Joneson, USA (April 2003)

"An enjoyable time - exciting views - and the challenge was there - so I can exclaim with strength "I MOUNTAIN BIKED TOBAGO".  Look forward to more single track" - J Connell, USA (April 2003)

"It was for us a very pleasant experience to get to know Tobago by bike.  The tour guides were nice, friendly and competent.  They were on time in the right place.  The first trail was very interesting.  For us it was ideal - not too exhausting but still not boring" - D & D Ehin, Switzerland (April 2003)

"Sean was a great tour guide.  His detailed knowledge of Tobago combined with his ability to judge my riding ability well made for a fantastic day's riding.  Thanks again for helping me to have a great time exploring Tobago the best way - by bike" - RMills, France (May, 2003)

"Nigel and Sean are two great guys who love what they do.  They love Tobago and love cycling.  Great with teenagers if you want to give the kids some experience of cycling in the interior of Tobago.  If you want some tuff stuff they can do that as well.  Strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to see Tobago from a different angle" - D Ackerman, England (August, 2003)

"I had a great experience with Mountain Biking Tobago.  They can offer you good bikes, good trails, good guides.  If you want to bike at other places, you're at a good place at Tobago.  Sean and Nigel you did a good job.  I enjoyed the rides.  Keep your gear going, great performance" -

S Kunnen, Netherlands (September, 2003)

"These guys walk the talk and are genuine enthusiasts, professional, on time and helpful - highly recommended" - B Gillman, New Zealand (October, 2003)

"I'll definitely be recommending Mountain Biking Tobago to anyone I know coming to Tobago.  It's a great way to get off the usual tourist trail and with friendly guides and decent quality bikes, you'll get to see a bit more of Tobago's great countryside than you'd imagine.  Nice one, fellas!!" - S Dittrich, UK (October, 2003)

"Sean is a real professional.  Everything is well planned, he is punctual and his knowledge of the trails is amazing.  There is a lot of mountains in Tobago, so from the top of the mountains down to secluded beaches and waterfalls, you can get all the challenge you're looking for.  Believe me, you won't meet too many tourists in the trails!  Mountain biking is also a good way to discover some small villages of Tobago.  I have been very pleased with Mountain Biking Tobago. and also appreciated the fact that Sean answered my emails very fast when planning my trip.  Thanks Sean, it's been a great experience!" - J Dessureault, Canada (December, 2003)

"Excellent friendly service, on time (not Trini time).  Great bikes with all the bits you need to suit you.  Definitely will be doing it again.  Start early as it will get hot!  Visit places the normal tourists do not go.  Sean was knowledgeable of the area.  He was patient and giving advice for appropriate trail conditions.  He quickly accessed our knowledge, fitness and skill levels." - I Rudkin, UK (December, 2003)

“Tobago has some good steep downhills with switch backs.  Where else can you ride with a view of the Caribbean on single track in glorious sunshine?  It was an excellent day’s mountain biking worth the early start.  Sean makes a great guide with just the right amount of local knowledge and handy advice to make a great day” – P Giles, UK (December, 2003)

"Sean is terrific.  He is both a wonderful host as well as an accomplished rider.  He is able to structure the ride to the ability and conditions of the group.  The trails are interesting - technically challenging and stunningly beautiful.  I look forward to returning for another tour" - S Heslop, USA (January, 2004)

“Nice, energetic and 100% natural” – Barille, Italy (February, 2004)
