There was some confusion with the subcontractors that provided the transportation to the boat. They told us to be ready at 4:45 am, they actually showed up before 7 am. On the boat we enjoyed it and the guide in both spanish and english was well informed and funny. Great experience and look forward to when the expansion of the canal is finished. The city of Panana neeeds a great deal of cleaninig all over. Too much garbage on the streets and sidewalks. There is also a great deal poverty in a country with 3 and half million people and loads of dollars due to the canal itself. The social difference is rampant.
Very interesting tour. Great way to learn about the engineering feats accomplished by the United States. Can be very hot. Do not forget sunblock. Food was very good. Guide was very interesting and informative, but the P A system was hard to hear in some areas of the boat. All in all a tour you should not miss while visiting Panama.
I truly enjoyed the adventure. Our guide was very informative with just the right amount of humor. I learned a lot about the history of the building of the canal.
The breakfast and lunch that was provided was adequate.
My 1 and only complaint would be about the woman at the other end of the telephone when I called to confirm pick up time at our hotel. She was rude and not very helpful.
Very informative. Bit of waiting in the bus while the boat's pilot turned up but nobody explained the reason until later
Wonderful experience. The guide was informative and entertaining. The food was more than ample and quite tasty. The boat ride was very pleasing on it's own.
This cruise was worth its weight in gold. The commentator was absolutely fabulous. His voice was clear and sharp (I am hearing impaired and had no problem understanding) To all potential visitors; Its a must.
Good trip and especial thanks to Viator who arranged to change the day from the one we had booked.
Very interesting commentary. We did the half day trip and that was value for money. Can't believe that the full day trip along the whole canal would be worth £250 each. Check it out.
Worst tour ever. The tour boat was old and shoddy and overloaded with hundreds of people who constantly moved position to try and get the best view. The sound system was totaly inadequate which made it impossible to hear the guides narrative. Many of the guides comments were sexist and innapropriate. The food was terrible.
Tour was a very rewarding experience, we had everything we expected, highly recommended, tour operator very friendly and knowledgeable and fun. we enjoy the trip very much
We did go on a ship from Gamboa to the Amador causeway. However, a lot of time went into waiting and transportation. The tour time was about 3.5 hours only. It would be good to figure out how to minimize wait in the morning.
This was a great way to learn the history of the canal and current activities surrounding the new canal that is under construction. The boat ride was leisurely, the food was ethnic but good, and the people were quite friendly.
Make sure that you take advantage of the pickup service to and from your hotel. We made the mistake of driving to the departure site and almost missed the shuttle bus which takes everyone to the boat. Panama is not an easy city to drive in because there are very few signs (street names, one way, etc.).
Overall you will love this tour. We did.
It was fantastic. We enjoyed ourselves and made some new friends along with learning more about the canal. Thanks for such a wonderful experience. Shirley and Kathy
It was a very good trip. My family really enjoyed it and highly recommend it
Wonderful! Loved it!
Tour was good after taking cab to travel agency. Bus driver walked by us in hotel lobby without identifying herself and we had to take cab.
