Oscar, Juliette and the boat pilot were wonderful. Very knowledgeable, friendly and focused on making sure we had a great time. Great background info on Panama. We went to el Valle Anton based on Oscar’s recommendation. Bravo!

Saw three varieties of monkey. White faced Capuchin, Geoffroy's tamarin and Howler all came on to the boat, the first two species for a while, Howler only fleetingly. Mario was very nice.

Little disappointed as first cancelled and need to reschedule and we were lucky we could. The guide was in a non caring mood that day. We did get out did see monkeys and did feed them. That was fun. But didn’t seem long enough as we stopped to get bananas and he said he’d have them.

We had some trouble with the company following through on the booking. They called the day before and said there was a holiday and they wanted to move the tour to another day, because they were worried about traffic. We explained that we were not going to be available for the next day. They called back and said they would keep to the original plan. However, it seems like the trip was rushed and did not last as long as it was projected to last, so they must have shortened it.

My husband and I took our 2 sons, ages 11 and 14. We loved this trip! I normally get very seasick and I was nervous but I never got sick at all. We saw 3 different species of monkeys. The capuchins boarded our boat and took bananas and nuts from our hands. Highly recommend!

It was ok. The tour provider cancelled my morning reservation due to insufficient bookings and added me to the afternoon tour. Tip of the day: INSIST ON THE MORNING TOUR!! As others have mentioned in some reviews, tours to monkey island run all day long and, if you go on afternoon tour, the monkeys have been harassed... and fed... all day long so they're not interested or hungry in coming out for the afternoon visitors. But we did eventually coax a couple monkeys out of the trees plus the scenery was beautiful and the boat ride was great so I would do it again. As I said, I would just make sure I got on the morning tour and not the afternoon tour. Anyway, best of luck to you and enjoy Panama, it's really beautiful!

Good tour, I loved how direct it was with no looming around. Mario was happy to answer any and all questions, saw so many monkeys!

We loved it! I wish it was slightly longer but it was an awesome experience. The monkey's were not shy at all! We saw some Tucans which was neat. Our guide Mario was very informative. When I go back to Panama I will definitly be booking a tour and requesting him! Great day at a fair price! Thanks again!
