I had so much fun with this group. I knew no one and now have 21 new friends. The organizer, Roger Kirton, worked around the clock to insure things went smoothly and had a genuine concern for all. When the group had enough of the historic temples, different itineraries were developed. There was something for everyone. The snippets of life we experienced in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand created an urge to travel there again. I look forward to participating in future travel opportunities with Soca Islands.

Jamaica Carnival with Soca Islands was a fantastic experience. The whole trip was expertly coordinated. There was a nice variety of fetes (all inclusive, cooler, beach, breakfast) everything happened as predicted, no cancellations and the vibes, music etc was consistently great. Transport was always on time and super reliable. Carnival costume was excellent quality (Gen XS) and the session with a photographer in costume was a nice touch. The best part was meeting everyone else on the trip, a lovely group of people to share the experience with. And a special mention to Roger for being so communicative the whole time, making sure you have all the details you need and can reach him with special requests. He found me a great taxi driver (Michael) when I needed to go out by myself.

My trip with Soca Islands to Trinidad for Carnival 2024 was my first time visiting the country. Let me just say Roger and his team made this entire experience AMAZING. From cultural events, transportation, all-inclusive VIP fetes, and limin- this trip was EVERYTHING. Having Soca Islands allowed us to see 10x more and experience 20x more than we would have on our own. They are trustworthy, kind, and professional and take time to listen to feedback provided. Thank you Roger!

Best. Trip. Ever! *Long review alert* but I can't say enough about my great experience with Soca Islands. We went as a group of 8 (as part of a larger group) and everyone had the time of their lives! To start, all of the fetes were phenomenal! There was a different vibe at each one so we experienced a variety of celebrations. Not sure how we made it to all of them but we did! #teamnosleep. Roger's advice on when to arrive/leave was spot on to maximize our fun. The cultural events and the beach trip to unwind were amazing to experience as well. The accommodations - I really liked Kapok hotel. It wasn't what we originally chose so when Roger said we moved, I was nervous. But it was clean, the staff was nice, the food was good (try the lamb burger and the pizza) and it was close to the action. We walked back after Monday's parade. Next, Roger was flexible and communicative with our opinionated group at every step, and he always answered questions with grace & patience. When things didn't go as planned (which happens with large groups, larger crowds and spotty cell service) he was quick to communicate and execute a solution. If you don't do well waiting on other people, I suggest you opt for separate transportation (cuz people be hella late). Most important were the vibes - and our group was top tier vibes at all times. The party wasn't only at the fetes, but carried over onto the maxi rides! And when we were out on di road, everyone looked out for each other. Lastly, Roger was extremely accommodating. I was proposed to on di road (completely surprised) and the Soca Islands photographer was there to capture all the angles!!! (so grateful). He also captured other epic moments of our group throughout the week (we were lit lit!). Additionally, the morning after the carnival parade, I requested if Soca Islands could arrange an impromptu trip to Avocat waterfall (it wasn't included in our itinerary). Within an hour he had the details to us and within 2 we were on our way. Oh and the goodie backpack filled with useful items was a nice unexpected touch! I will say this as my only critique - before booking, when I was researching which company to use, I had a BUNCH of questions. Soca Islands was slow to respond and that made me a little nervous about moving forward (I mean, it was a lot of $). But I took a chance, and I'm so so SO glad I did. Once booked, and as we got closer to the trip, ALL of my questions were answered and my mind was put at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend Soca Islands to anyone doing Trinidad Carnival (especially for the first time). This was the trip of a lifetime! And Roger is definitely on the guest list for our wedding in 2025!!!! Thank you for a beautiful and fun-filled experience. - Brynne (and Dave)

Trinidad Carnival was already going to be an experience but it hit different when the top and premium fetes have already been picked for you and there’s still space to choose others. From the accommodations to the drivers the trip was real organized, why fete alone when you can make friends and fete with them on the road. There’s a reason people on the trip were returners. 11/10

This concierge is literally a lifesaver for Trinidad Carnival. Not having to worry about booking event tickets or picking up costumes in the rush of the city was so calming. Also, everyone who worked for Soca Islands was so nice and accommodating. Also, having the option to participate in cultural activities around the island was very exciting. The entire trip was well organized, Roger was very communicative prior to and during the trip, and I felt safe with the group. The only downfall I would mention is of the group accommodations. I think relying on others for arrival and departure to and from events made it a bit challenging. However, I am not taking off any stars, because Soca Islands cannot control the group dynamics, and when addressed Roger did everything he could to mitigate the issue. Additionally, having reliable transportation was also very helpful when watching others scramble for TT rideshare. I would highly suggest this concierge to anyone looking for a solo trip or a friend group escape.

I had a great time with Soca Island. The company took out all of the worries and pretty much took care of everything. I would definitely Using them again for my next carnival trip.

I had a great experience! As a first time visitor and feter at Trinidad Carnival as well as solo traveler, my time with Soca Islands was stress free and virtually seamless. This is the BEST option for a customized carnival experience. Any concerns I had were handled immediately and professionally. I have already begun recommending Soca Islands to friends and family and will be returning myself for the next bacchanal!
