Honeymoon cruise excursion! Saved $$ vs ship tour. Nice cold A/C, spacious van. Beer, soda, water, and fresh cut fruit. Locks (saw a passage), jungle walk, and ruins. Tour guides were funny and informative. Felt safe and cared for. They spotted wildlife and stopped for pics whenever the group wanted! Back to the ship with time to spare.

Oscar was a great tour guide. Picked me up directly from the exit, holding a sign, took me to the vehicle and away we went. Saw the beautiful old town, the old military base, the locks of the Panama canal functioning. tour guide explained much about the history. also had an opportunity to go eat with the locals, delicious seafood.

This was a great experience. Our tour guide (Alex I think?) was really knowledgeable and talked to all of us on the mini bus tour. We saw the Gatun locks, the san lorenzo fort and he gave us a tour through the rainforest pointing out various animal species along the way. He provided bottled water and beer throughout the tour...

This was a fantastic tour. We had Alex as our tour guide and Mario's wife joined us. We went to the locks first and saw a cruise ship going through. From there we went to the rainforest. We had a great hike and saw sloths, monkeys and toucans. Alex was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions. We... More

My friend and I wanted to do a quick trip to Gamboa and the Canal on our last day in Panama. Scrambling to figure something out, we emailed Mario on Saturday and he arranged a private tour for the two of us on Tuesday. We had a blast! Mario and Julieth picked us up in a private air conditioned car... More

Very friendly, informative, and outgoing. We called in the morning, and was on a tour a few hours later... Very accommodating. We saw toucans, sloths, iguanas, alligator, and three kinds of monkeys. I was disappointed that a couple of my pictures didn't turn out, but they sent me copies that they had taken. Highly recommend this company!

My wife and I wanted an excursion to see the Gamboa rain forrest and Panama Canal. Based on other previous reviews, we chose Mario. There are actually four guides named Mario with Almiza so to be clear, we are reviewing Mario #2. Mario made recommendations on the best time to leave the hotel (7am) to see the most wildlife and...

Although they are listed under Colon, they also provide service from Panama City. I booked a Panama Railway/Gatun Locks/Portobello combi and it was very well organized.
