This tour was well led by a nature and history expert. Our tour guide Ross was excellent! The local boat operator was especially helpful in spotting and calling the birds and monkeys to get responses and we saw many varieties. The trip included a bit of time on the canal with the container ships, Charges River, Monkey Island- with the Carpuchian monkeys that are delightful, and the indigenous indian village with a hike and opportunity to purchase lovely items made by the women. It was a very enjoyable day!
I highly recommend this tour. The whole day from start to finish was enchanting. Tons of wildlife to see: birds of all kinds, several species of monkeys the monkeys hop right on the boat from the trees!!, alligators, iguanas, raccoons.... The indigenous tribe was also so welcoming and friendly - they gave us an excellent tour of the jungle, explaining uses for the various trees, and also gave us a history of their tribe, explanations on their traditions, and how they are adjusting to modern times. It was very genuine. The guide spoke perfect English I thought at first he was from California! and was very knowledgeable.
The trip was great and exceeded our expectations. Gonzo our guide was amazing.
Even before we took a different tour we knew we had found a great one here. The small group number gave an intimate day. We began at a place that was closed for a holiday- so Kevin was there to greet us- merely to wait with us until our guide, Nick, arrived. From the minute we got into the air conditioned van- Nick was communicating with us. Extremely knowledgeable, fluent in several languages and friendly, organized and efficient, Nick was the perfect guide. He is with Barefoot Panama Tours- subcontracted here. We went to the less touristy Indian Village, had a smaller boat where Nick explained so much to us the entire ride. Stopped for lunch afterward and chatted more- Would HIGHLY recommend this tour- and Nick was the main reason why!
Great friendly knowledgeable guide. The tour was as described. Please provide a tour length range. Ours tour took 4 hours, while description said 8 (I and #39;m sure it and #39;s based on traffic and conditions) Also provide multiple pick up/drop off points and times.
Gonzo, 2 thumbs up. Don't miss this, the Indian village is amazing.
Very nice trip! Our guide, Nick, was very friendly, very professional and very knowledgeable. We saw monkeys and fed them from the boat. The Indian Village was interesting, only take mosquito spray. We highly recommending this trip!
Guide was great! Full of information but also let us relax and enjoy the experience. Well organized but also flexible based on what the group wanted.
A great trip!!!!!! Have to definitely check it out while in Panama
Our guide, Gonzo, was great. He offered helpful suggestions about things to do and restaurants in the area as well as interesting information about Panama in general. On the tour we saw three types of monkeys with some adventurous little guys boarding the boat to be fed peanuts by our guide. The Indian Village was interesting with a transfer from our motor boat to local canoes in order to reach the village due to low water levels. The village is a good place to pick up some authentic hand crafted souvenirs.
