Best tour ever

John is an amazing tour guide, and Joel a wonderful driver. Not only did we get to see the beautiful country from the Atlantic to the pacific, but we saw so many different animals and learned so much about Panama, it’s people and the history behind many different things. Of course the boat ride was our favorite, with monkeys jumping on the boat with us.

Enrique was an amazing and interesting tour guide. He went out of his way to find the monkeys. He made multiple stops and set up a telescope to see several sloths. Pointed out a toucan and coati. Picnic was delicious. Learned a lot and had fun. Don’t overhink this tour. It was a blast.

This is such a complete tour - starting at the Canal, followed by ruins and sightseeing on the jungle. Our guide Enrique was friendly, punctual and above all, very knowledgeable - easily one of the best guides we’ve ever encountered in our travels. He went the extra mile to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone. Would recommend to anyone visiting Panama!!

This was fun! Went go monkey island and happy our boat did not feed the monkeys as that is habituating Wildlife. John, the tour guide was amazing! He gave historical information, taught us about animals, and had a great voice! He should do voice overs for National Geographic!

Not to good for the price

The tour wasn't to bad but it's really expensive for what you get from them. You can easily do all of that by yourself for less than half price. The lunch included is really cheap and horrible nothing to do with Panamanian food. Not recommended

The tour was great from start to finish. Pick up was on time. The van had tons of space and well air conditioned. Enrique was extremely kind and had an immense knowledge of the rain forest he was driving us through and Panama. Loved talking to him! Saw a sloth, monkeys, canal, fort and countless views!

You won’t go wrong with Enrique and the Jungle / Canal Trip
Kiran_P
, May 2022
Firstly, Enrique our guide added the “cherry” on the icing! Knowledgeable, friendly, alert (needed to be to pick out some of the wildlife whilst on the move- brilliant!) and the trip was well planned. This included a wonderful picnic. Also have to mention the people we were with made it into a great team. You will enjoy this excursion. Will also learn a lot more then when you started with Shame that a country that has a tremendous income from the canal isn’t making Panama the oasis of South America. This can only be due to the greedy, short sighted people in power. Very sad for it’s people. Thx

Not worth it
Dimeisa_M

Let me start of by saying the guide was amazing and very informative but this tour I would just not recommend because we found it very boring. It could have had a lot more but it just sadly didn’t. It’s not worth the money, I would suggest doing something else and if you want to see the Panama Canal just do that by yourself.

We had a wonderful tour, with a great tour guide, John. He had so much knowledge, not only about the Panama Canal, but also about the animals, history, etc. We learned more from John than during our visit to the Canal Museum the day before. The boat trip was beautiful, the nature and the animals.
