Our tour guide was beyond excellent! (I just wish I remembered his name.) He took his time calling the monkeys down and explained so much about the monkeys and the embera culture. The man deserves a raise!
I dont see nor have ever mentioned water is provided.. since you can drink the water in Panama, we recommend refilling your bottles to be less wasteful and more environmentally conscious. . but thanks for the review all the same
This trip is a totall ripoff and wasting time and money. No breakfast nor lunch included compared to other full-day trips with the same price. Just a few monkey pictures and boring native village visit do not worth $150.00 .
We had a very interesting day exploring Lake Gatun at Gamboa Rain Forest Resort. We went through small islands at Lake Gatun exploring nature. Been in the middle of nowhere surrounded by water and green, you can only see and hear monkeys and birds . Our guide Ross was excellent. In the second part of our trip to the Jungle we visited Embera Indian Village. Learn all about there cultureand hike in the forest. Lovely day .
Ross was a fabulous guide and shared information not only about the places officially on the tour, but also in the neighborhoods we passed along the way. He knew and shared a lot about the rainforest, the indigenous community that we visited and about the country of Panama. Fantastic!
If I could give this tour six stars I would.
This excursion was booked through viator, however, barefoot tours guided us. We had an amazing time. Our guide and boat driver were both top notch. Ross or Russ was our guide. I do not remember our boat driver's name but we were told he was the best and he was. We met at the American Trade Hotel at 8:00 and on our way to the boat our guide told us all about the sites along the way which made the trip very interesting. The monkey island tour was fantastic. The visits to the indigenous village was so very informative.
After talking with others who books a similar tour with a different tour company may have gone on the tram but they did not have the exclusive guide service that we did. I would go on this trip, again, in a minute.
This tour was extremely expensive for that it was. It only took several hours. We essentially took a boat to a few spots on the canal, where we had a very quick look at some monkeys then went to the Indian village, where we barely had time to look around. We finished with a 15 minute walk in the rainforest.
