Why Patriotic T&T

Authentic Trinbago!

Authentic Trinbago!


We connect you with local people and communities … truly living Trinbago. Our elements are sought from those we dub T&T Culture Keepers – people upholding traditions passed on through generations. We ensure the knowledge passed on is true, meaningful and indigenous.



Our offerings are not tours, but experiences! It is immersive and participatory. We seek to get dirty and learn through doing. Generally, Trinidad and Tobago’s culture is not an observatory one, and so we maintain our elements to be the same.
Support Local!

Support Local!


Each element of our experiences are hand-chosen for the Made in Trinidad and Tobago brand. We are committed to creating an ecosystem of businesses to boost our economy and the lives of Trinbagonians. Our products, services and people are of high-quality and we continue to highlight and emphasise that.

Responsible Tourism!

Our commitment to responsible tourism:

People: We desire to experience and share in the authentic cultures of our communities. We believe with knowledge; we gain and promote an understanding and respect for others.

Local communities: Our experiences are based on community tourism which supports the businesses and efforts of locals. Besides this use contributing to a more authentic experience, it ensures money stays in and powers the local economy.

Environment: We seek to provide and maintain as many eco-friendly options within our offerings as possible. Decisions to do chartered transport from a central location help with our environmental impact. Our environmental policies and practices include not taking anything that doesn’t belong to us (natural items, photos) and leaving nothing behind (garbage).
