          Fast-paced, well-organized, and very tropical
          San Blas Island tours are fantastic! No need to go to Bocas Del Toro! Just plan on an exciting day while in Panama City. The car drive over to the boat launch was exciting! Our driver maneuvered the highway gracefully and the mountain roads with expertise! He even stopped for wildlife photo opportunities. While stopping at different islands was cool as was the snorkeling in the middle of the ocean in the blue swimming area, we really loved going to the island with the sunken ship. It has all we really needed! Also, the Texaco stops were too long and actually unnecessary on the way back.

          Tour of Panama
          Had a great time. Davis was a great guide. I was able to visit at least 4 islands. Had a hot meal and some beverages. Definitely would recommend for first timers.

          San Blas getaway for one
          Davies was great, from the moment we got on the boat until we got back, he always counted everyone and made sure we had our life vests while traveling from island to island, the food was good, beer was cheap (!). The islands are breathtakingly beautiful… the tour gives us enough time to enjoy and explore the islands which is great. Reason why i gave 3 stars. The pick up was done by a guy in an SUV with a total of 7 adults, needless to say traveling for almost 3hrs squeezed in an SUV is not ideal. For a grou p that big I would expect a van with individual siting. On the way back the guy next to me had wet shorts.. no comments. In addition to that, the driver didn’t introduce himself, didn’t even say good morning when i walked in and showed up 25 minutes before the arranged time. Obviously I wasn’t ready and he had to skip me and come back (which he did an hour later and half hour after the time he told me he’d be there). The pick up portion was a mess!!! Lastly, these tour companies should include ALL charges in their rates. Have us pay them and then have cash to pay at the gate of the park is just a hassle especially for people who live in the 21st century and pay everything with their phones (me). Have some extra cash and a credit card machine for the ones who for whatever reason dont have cash with them to avoid unnecessary stress (i lost my wallet the night before the tour hence the issue)

          Truly paradise
          What an amazing day, the highlights were island 1 where we spent 2 hours exploring, playing in the water, kayaking, there is a bar and the tour provided some fruit, it was truly paradise, the second island was more of a sandbar where we got to play for about 15 minutes in the clear natural pool (I wouldn't call this an island but the tour classifies is as an island). The next island was for lunch we stayed for 1 hour very good food, large portion of chicken & plantains. The last island was also amazing, bar, palm tress crystal water great to lounge around and enjoy the magical views. Then it was time to go. This is a very long day from Panama about 13 hours, be prepared to be on the road at 5-530am, its about 2-3 hours to get to the doc where you wait for about 30-45 min while the operators are getting situated, there were a lot of people all going at the same time but a first world problem considering. Plan on being back in Panama between 6-7pm

          Must visit San Blas Islands
          A must do tour when visiting Panama. The San Blas islands are beautiful and the tour guides are so amazing. They make the whole experience effortless. Everything is on time. The lunch served was delicious, and the time spend on all the islands was so relaxing. Davis was our tour guide on the boat, and him and his team in the boat were 10/10.

          Best experience
          Normally I don’t do this but, this Rhine I am forced to write a review. Davis is the best Tour guide I ever had. I don’t want to spoil the experience, but trust me, you really have to go.

        So disappointed. I almost never write critical reviews, but I feel compelled to warn others. This is not really a "tour" they are selling. It is simply disorganized transportation to 3 islands and a sand bar .... and they DO NOT TAKE YOU TO the islands they advertize. You will not meet the San Blas people, except for a couple folks helping shuffle people around in boats. There is no "English Guide" and no stories told about the people or the place. No kayaks, although listed in the actual tour title! Get the picture? And by "disorganized" I mean disorganized. We got shuffled around from boat to boat, so even our small group and driver changed multiple times. So glad we did not buy mulitple day overnight tour which we heard from others was REALLY bad, as well. You get a mosquito net OR sheets. Not both. No real mattress. Super primitive. My question was "Where's the money going?" Not to the Kuna people, for sure.

        Hello Ms. Anya, 1. First we want to let you know it is important to treat people in the islands with respect. Naidi was making his best to understand what was the issue with you, since you had a reservation for just 1 island tour, so it was just a matter of clarification with our Viator partner. 2. You booked one Island tour, which contemplated just 1 Island and the natural swimming pool. The 3 Island tour plus the natural swimming pool is a 4 island tour it is of course more expensive, and we have different options of islands to visit. 3. Kayaks are self guided kayak which were given just in front of the beach and only our clients are free to take one to explore the islands. It is not a guided kayak tour. 4. We only work with local people, and as we advertise their English is basic, we are giving them English classes and they will improve overtime. We like to have local people working since we help to their economy and also make the experience more authentic. We are a social responsible tour operator, and most of the money stay in local hands. 5. About the lodging comments, we dont know who you talked with and if they were our clients, not sure which kind of action you need from us on this side? Just to be clear, all san blas islands are rustic and basic lodges, the experience is to live like they live.. there are no hotels in San Blas Islands, only cabanas served by the local families. It is not nice to call it "primitive". San blas is a beautiful destination, and many people appreciate the time they spend there, but we understand it is not a place for everyone. Thanks!
