In addition to standard bus services, PTSC offers tours to some of Trinidad’s most popular attractions. The “Know Your CountryTours are designed primarily for locals (though tourists are welcome), and are an excellent and very cheap way of getting to some of the more inaccessible parts of the island. Prices range from TT$50 to TT$150, not including entrance fees and meals. The most popular trips are listed below, but the PTSC website details many other options.

Departing from City Gate in Port of Spain, there’s a visit to Los Iros (stopping at Penal and the Divina Pastora church in Siparia), Blanchisseuse (stopping at the Asa Wright Nature Centre and passing through Morne La Croix and Brasso Seco, and with a swimming stop at Las Cuevas), Mayaro (stopping at Manzanilla Beach) and the Pitch Lake (stopping at Vessigny Beach). Starting from the PTSC terminus in San Fernando (though you could pick it up in the capital), there’s also a tour to Port of Spain, taking in the National Museum and heading on to Maracas Beach. For more information, call t 623 2341, ext 234 or 371.
