Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Special thanks to Vicki, our tour guide. I have done the tour before and she was the best. Very knowledgeable and experienced in everything inreguards to the pitch lake. Only go with the official tour guides. There are plenty of local people thay will try and do the tour onto the pitch lake, and it won't be as great of an experience. Once at the lake park at the official parking lot. There, you will meet with security and the official guides. Wear comfortable shoes or comfortable water shoes, be ready to walk a bit, you will be hot, have water with you, wear sunscreen and bug repellent. Have swimwear to get into the springs and a towel to dry off. Must follow guys instructions while on the pitch lake so not to get hurt.

I and my boyfriend had another Tour with Island Experience yesterday. Ms. Gunda organized it for us. We were so pleasant pleased with everything, from beginning to end. Our Tour Guide Janelle was excellent, informative, friendly and professional. We visited a local produce market and was able to see, touch, smell and learned the names of fruits and seasoning, we then went to the Pitch Lake (Wow), spectacular. Our tour guide Billy was great, we saw and experienced everything. Billy made sure we were safe. We then went to a two different Hindu Temples. We learnt a lot. Along our traveling, Janelle was point out building, grave site, roads, historical sites to us. Bob our driver was safe, friendly and slowed down when someone wanted to capture something on their Camera. We went to Lunch in a beautiful mall. We all had a great time. I loved every moment going and coming. I would go on many more tours with company on my next visit to Trinidad&Tobago.

When i told my story to friends, there were not surprised...Lots of crooks in that area..
I did not go through the main entrance as we just stopped on the road . Some of the guys present invited us to come for a visit. I went along with it as I was interested to hear to bistory of the pitch lake.
I did asked the price to the guy who presented himself as Vincent Anthony , recognized guide and asked how much. I was told , no fee, people give what they want. I should have recorded that moment for later

Visit was interesting. At the time to pay, I handled 25 TT$ to him, he got very furious and asked for 150 TT$, around 20US$.

He grabbed a large piece of tar and was getting ready to throw it on the car. My wife present in the car, which did not come along for the visit asked me not to argue fearing for something to happen.

I gave him 100TT as my wife from Trinidad insisted to give him. Alone, I would have certainly left without paying extra
I tried to call to report the problem, never got any one to pick up the phone

Must admit the comments during the visit were of good quality.
Just want to make sure people dont fall in that trap

I visited the Pitch Lake with friends on a sweltering day. The heat was unbearable, especially since there were no trees to shelter us. The lake was fascinating. Before I heard about it on this visit, I had never given asphalt a second thought. The Pitch Lake is the largest natural deposit of asphalt in the world, estimated to contain 10 million tons. The locals call it the "Eighth Wonder of the World". The lake is one of several natural asphalt lakes in the world. The La Brea Tar Pits (Los Angeles), McKittrick Tar Pits (McKittrick) and Carpinteria Tar Pits (Carpinteria) are all in California. Lake Guanoco is in Venezuela. It's incredible to think that this pitch is linked to some of the world’s most heavily trafficked highways, international airport runways and bridges. However, the road leading to the lake is uneven, with some huge potholes. The irony cannot escape you.

Our guide took us here on part of our island tour. Our guide Amena was fantastic. She taurght all about the history. She has been guiding for >30 years. She made the lake come to life for us. We learned so much while there and how critical this has been to Trinidad & Tobago. This is a must go -- to see the "8th wonder of the world."

The pitch lake should be on your trip list when visiting Trinidad, without doubt. You can drive up by yourself, if you like roadtrips or go with a tour.

I have been there twice already (mostly because I like roadtrips)

Trinidad and Tobago offers a "Know your Country tour' and I was fortunate to visit this beautiful natural resource. On the deep South of the Island, this expansion of Pitch was seen. A giant dark large expansion. The tour guide was beautiful. I was given the opportunity to soak in on of the ponds. The water is high in sulphur so my fill, soaking my body in there. What an experience....

Viewing this raw mineral was amazing to me. The tour was highly informative and interesting. There was a small entry fee of $6 USD...but it was worth it.

Since I went and my camera was stolen I have no pics :( I will visit again soon ... Ooohhhh and If you are visiting Trinidad soon be sure to taste their local "Doubles".
