We were lucky enough to go at a time when the boat was only lightly filled. We were able to wander around easily and find places to sit anywhere although we preferred to stay out of the sun as much as we could. There was...More

Every one who transverses the canal should read the book by David McCullough: “The Path Between The Seas: The Creation of the Panama Canal, 1870-1914.” It gives a snapshot of the history of building the canal, and the terrible problems encountered by both the French,...More

I would definitely not recommend the full transit tour with this company--we had a very bad experience. We booked directly and were picked up at our hotel at 5:30 a.m. and then stood in line for over 30 minutes waiting to check in. There was...More
