The tour guide is very experienced and his English is very fluent. We saw titi monkeys, howler monkeys and white-faced monkeys. Really amazing.

Enjoyable boat ride

The tour was very good. We saw Howler and Capuchin monkeys, Basilisk lizards, and a variety of birds. The only downside was the website directed us to the Gamboa Resort Marina but when we were dropped off there a gentleman told us to go to the hotel. Luckily our Uber driver hadn't left yet, because that would have been a little bit of a hike. I'm still not sure why we needed to go to the hotel because just a few minutes after arriving, we were carted right back down to the marina in the back of a truck! All was fine, though, once we got on the boat.

This was very interesting and worth the ride out of the city to see. So peaceful and serene. Very beautiful and definitely somewhere that I will visit again. The only thing to note for travelers is that if you are planning to take an Uber back to town, they are few and far between so plan ahead.

I was VERY skeptical when booking this via viatour. Ended being great! The costs was much lower than all inclusive package other tours promote. Small note, we went to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort and waited there. I suspect we could have driven directly to the Marina and maybe catch another boat going out. I had my tickets electronically on my phone which caused a few minutes of dialogue could have been avoided if I printed my tickets, but no big deal. Oh, the excursion was terrific: big ships. monkeys, iguana, turtle, birds.

Fantastic 1 hour tour through the Panama Canal to Lake Gatun, passing by ships in the Canal and seeing monkeys, birds and even a baby crocodile. Juan was a knowledgeable guide on both the canal and the wildlife. Really packed and great value for the price.

This tour is a must do for all nature lovers. It's a great taste of Panama's amazing biodiversity. The guides are informative too. Only downfall is that it wasn't longer, but there's a great time to be had,

Fun tour. Guides know where to go to see and point out wildlife. Monkeys board the boat for pictures. Could not book through The Gambia resort but had no problem booking through Viator Tours.
