This tour is the experience of a lifetime and certain to please any curious or seasoned traveler. Staff is stellar; very courteous, organized, and well-prepared! Our tour narrator, Gus, is unparalleled in his knowledge, enthusiasm, energy, and sense of humor. While the full transit makes for a long day, we believe a partial transit would have diminished the awe and magic of the canal's history and grandeur. Worthy of anyone's bucket list, this tour is definitely a magnificent highlight of our vacation.

To actually transit one of the Wonders of the World namely the Panama Canal must be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The tour vessel guide Gus is great and the service is terrific, if somewhat regimented. There is no way to describe the amazement I felt actually using the functioning equipment installed over 100 years ago and still going strong. Being in close proximity to some of the giant container, car carrier, liquid gas, petroleum, loose dry goods and assorted other vessels gives one a sense of awe. Learning about the hardships and successes of the construction left me with a feeling of great respect and wonder. Understanding the volume of useage is staggering. Don't forget the sunscreen and if you plan on staying on the open decks I recommend long pants and long sleeve shirt to prevent windburn even with the high temperature and humidity. Also, don't expect a lot of courtesy form the picture hounds who seem to leave their manners in their hotel rooms. For the less adventureous, the enclosed decks are air-conditioned but the views are limited. Finally, be prepared for a very long day.

Great trip. The boat was perfect with lots of visibility. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was tasty and plenty to drink which was all included in the price.

This was a terrific trip and one we highly recommend. It is unlike any other tour that you have taken to be able to transit the entire length of the Panama Canal, to get to see the whole path of the canal, see how it works, to travel through the locks and to travel with other ships is an experience you'll never forget. It is a long day, but don't be put off by that, it is very interesting, the ship is comfortable and you'll be well taken care of by the crew. All of the crew were very nice, very helpful and informative about the canal. We have two very nice meals breakfast and lunch plus snacks and plenty of beverages. All of which made the trip very easy and comfortable and kept us focused on the highlight of the trip - seeing the canal ! Very much worth the trip!

The cruise was incredible! I was glad that we picked the full transit tour instead of the the partial. The staff was friendly and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The bathroom situations wasn't ideal, there were about 8 bathrooms available at the beginning of the trip about 3 at the end. The boarding, eating, exiting and transferring onto the bus went considerable smooth. I had tried to contact the service provider Panama Marine Adventures several times by phone and email with a question. I never got a response. Viator also tried to contact Panama Marine Adventures with my concern but we still did not get any response.

This was an incredible tour. Definitely worth the price and the time. Had considered doing the half transit tour, but the full transit tour was worth it.
