There were more things that we were NOT happy with than things that we would recommend to others. It comes down to lack of organization-too many people- lack of communication on the day of the trip communication before the trip was excellent! Too much wasted time sitting around without knowing what is going on- guides did not do a good job of explaining things- Kayaking was excellent but we didnt know you could only choose ONE activity etc.
This is not a 5 hour lake tour but a one hour lake tour that can be booked directly from Gambao Resort for 35. Additionally the entry price for the Miraflores Locks is 15. Better to spend the extra money on an uber as only a driver and not a specialized guide is provided
Tour description and what happened are quite different. The boat ride was very short,less than an hour. There was no disembarking the boat, no kayaking, nothing but a very short boat ride. We then went to a nature preserve which was a poor excuse for a zoo. We were given a stale sandwich and a drink to picnic with. The most expensive tour that we took and most disappointing.
We had a good guide for the two of us. Good experience all around: three types of monkeys and a young crocodile were special to see.
trip around gatun lake fantastic. Saw capuchino and howler monkies, alligator, iguana and turtle.
kayak ride OK. lUNCH ok
George was a great guide. Had a fantastic time and definitely recommend this tour.
Great trip! Great Guide! This tour met all our expectation.
Our guide was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. And that he went out of his way to make us feel welcome in his country.
Highlight of our trip!! Everything was perfect!

The tour guide on this was wonderful a young man whom wanted to share his vast knowledge with us on the lakes and canal. Unfortunately when we got to the Island we were going to kayak but the equipment was locked away and no key! My son was eagerly awaiting the secret WW2 US communications center on one of the islands but this has been taken off the tour due to the widening of the canal.
Our Monkey Island Cruise was spectacular. We saw monkeys, lizards, baby crocodiles, and a variety of birds. So glad we did this cruise.
Excellent family tour. Tour leader was terrific as was the boat captain. Highlight was definitely getting to feed the monkeys on Monkey Island.
If you're in Panama City this should be #1 on your list.
