  • It's a little slice of landscaped heaven amid the city's hustle. The quiet nature walk makes you forget that you're just minutes away from the heart of Port-of-Spain. The trees are also home to beautiful wildlife such as birds and squirrels that make ever visit a new adventure.
  • Our tour cut us short on this stop, had to wait all to get off, then wait all in bathroom, than showed us 2 trees, palace and hurry up to buss, did not see gardens, did not see cemetery, briefly the palace. They should have like other tours given all 20 minutes on our own and we would have seen a lot more. Go on your own, is my suggestion
