Winning many awards and boasting more than 45 years of experience as a taxi tour driver, the venerable Mr 'B' Blackman is almost a Tobagonian institution. The Shepherd's Inn and previous Toucan Inn have been Mr B's second home for more than 20 years and his services have become a popular and highly-regarded feature of the hotel.
In addition to normal private taxi services, Mr 'B' offers a range of island tours and is happy to act as a knowledgeable guide when taking visitors to cultural events, such as the weekly 'Sunday School' party. There is hardly a corner of the island with which he is not familiar.
