This tour was wonderful - Cesar, our guide, followed all safety protocols which made us feel at ease. Cesar gave us extensive history and facts on the Panama Canal, the Canal Zone, and other interesting tidbits on Panamanian history throughout the tour. He was also very knowledgeable about the different animal and plant species we encountered on the tour, and made sure our Monkey Island visit was memorable! We boated by different locales searching for different species, and he and our boat captain did a great job spotting different animals and giving us facts about each one.
Well organized, fairly priced outing. The schedule included several activities but mostly didn’t feel rushed. I would have preferred another hour to hike in the rainforest and look at birds and other wildlife, but I was traveling with a friend with mobility difficulties, and this outing was within range for him, which is not easy to do. Overall, a good balance of nature, people, culture.
people over 60, beware, you will have to jump in and out of a boat without a ladder or rail. Good sunscreen is a must. Road is bumpy and long. The Islands are Paradise, the people are very friendly, the tour was well organized, everything ran in time. We enjoyed it very much. Of course, some comments in English about history and customs would be nice.
Our guide, Jorge, was awesome. Explained a lot and was very helpful. Communication before tour was great so we knew exactly when and where we would be picked up. We really learned a lot of history about the area and the canal.
Great tour and very informative. Food and beverage was average for such an expensive tour. Certain other members on our tour showed no respect to others in regard to viewing and photos by standing in front of many others.
