Nice morning on Lake Gatun! We watched several mid-size ship heading for the locks. And Monkey Island was fun with the capuchin monkeys impressing us with their acrobatics as they came to the boat for fruit.

We had a private tour with Luis. The tour was excellent. Our guide was on time, and he is very friendly, very knowledgeable. Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean in 1 day. The boat ride was amazing! The diversity of wildlife in the Panama Canal area (Soberania National Park) is great: Monkeys, Crocodiles, iguanas, birds, etc.! The Agua Clara Locks was also a great experience. Highly recommended tour.

A really nice day out, saw three moneky species and a sloth as well as a crocodile and other wildlife. The ships we saw in gatun lake were the ones we watched at the aqua Clara lock and it was nice to watch them complete their journey. The driver was friendly, punctual and extremely knowledgeable on the canals history and the surrounding area.

This was the best day of our visit to Panama! My wife and I were visiting the country with our three teenage children. The boat ride to Monkey Island was fantastic, and Cesar was a perfect guide. His knowledge of the area and its history is excellent. We take many trips with guide, and few made our trip as comfortable and enlightening as Cesar did.

Great day with Cesar as our guide! Door to door service from morning until evening, Cesar shared his knowledge of Panama's history and culture, answering all of our questions and anticipating even more. A nice mixture of activity with the Gatun Lake/Gamboa Park along with the Panama Canal expansion and the leisurely ride back from Colon on the Panama Railway. I'd tour with Cesar any day!!! Gracias!

Absolutely loved our day tour. We had a great tour guide, Rafael, who made our trip so interesting. He went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. He picked us up on time. Monkey island was great and the boat ride on the canal was a neat experience. Our guide was so informative with lots of Panama history. Definitely one of the best tours we’ve been on. Train ride was a great ending to the day.

From the time we were picked up, the tour began. Caesar began telling us about Panama' and pointing out special interest. Fortunately we had perfect weather. 1st part: We met Capt. Edgar and he took us to the perfect spots to greet the monkeys. We saw all three types of monkeys, iguanas, both sloths 3 toed and 2 toed, caiman crocodiles, toucans and parrots. 2nd part: We watched ships enter the new Aguas Clara Locks from the Visitor Center on the Atlantic side...amazing. 3rd part: We boarded the passenger train on the Panama Canal Railway and road from the Atlantic (Colon) through the jungle and along the canal to the Pacific (Panama City). We were then picked up by Caesar who was waiting when the train pulled in and returned to our resort. Caesar and Edgar were extremely knowledgeable and fun as well. Thank you for the memories.
