This tour is overpriced for what you do. The tour guide was not very enthusiastic and often just on his phone. The tour is advertised as a 7.5hr tour, however it only went for 4 hours. They stretch the time out by having you in a food court for lunch at the end for 1 hour. You may as well just go straight back to town. Nothing you can’t see on your own.
Our guides were very accommodating to our group of 20 people (family reunion). Some had been to Panama and Monkey Island before and for others this was their first time. Was very enjoyable for everyone. The guides were very informative about the environment and culture. Traveled with ages from 12 to 60 and everyone had fun. The Indian village was a treat.....the people so friendly and the children joyful and playful. Authentic experience
This was such an amazing trip ! Sergio was fabulous! He went out of his way to make our trip an enjoyable experience. We loved everything.....especially feeding the monkeys ! The Embera village was a fun experience, and the walk through the rainforest was intriguing. We had ages 18-72, and everyone LOVED this trip !
This tour was exciting, adventurous and iinformative. Our boat was actually ON the canal! How about those bragging rights!!!! The Indian village was absolutely amazing! But the person who made this an amazing tour was Russ our guide. He is a walking wealth of knowledge about Panama. I will do this again!
What an awesome day out! We got to see several types of monkeys up close and we even got to hear the howler monkeys! It was cool being in the Panama canal and seeing some of the ships cruising along. We also got to visit an indigenous community and learn more about the jungle/rainforest. All very interesting and it was great getting additional history from Gonzo our guide - awesome!!. Overall, a great day!
This tour was amazing! Our first guide Ross met us at the American Trade Hotel in the Old Town where we were picked up. He drove us to the dock, all the while providing information on both what our day would entail of and about the parks and canals we were driving by. When we reached our fiberglass boat, we were introduced to our tour guide, Gonzo. Gonzo was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. It was great getting to see 2 out of the 3 types of monkeys enter our boat so we could see them up close. The 3rd type tends to stay up in the trees - we had a great view of them, as well. We were then taken to the Indian Village where we were introduced to the community and got to walk through a jungle. The whole experience was incredible. Getting to see Monkey Island and Soberania National Park/Indian Village all in one trip is so convenient and very interesting. I strongly recommend this trip!! Thank you, Ross and Gonzo!
