Great experience of traveling by motor boat to the village. See the country up close and personal. The Embera were welcoming and interesting. They need visitors in order to survive in their village, or else they must move to the urban area.

Canoeing to the Village ,Garceth, a USA trained naturalist, shared his knowledge of the river and jungle. Greeted at the Village as honored guests, we watched... More

This is a very good tour. Not only is it interesting, but you can feel good that you are helping the Embera people live the way they want to live on their terms. They are a very kind and gentle people. It is not often that a person can step into another culture as easily as this one.

We loved this tour. The canoe trip up the river was fun and interesting. The hike to the waterfall was nice and we swam in the waterfall pool and climbed up to the higher level and jumped off the rocks into the top pool. The Embera tribe served a delicious lunch and the dance show was fun. Bought some souvenirs... More

We booked through Rudy's Tours and had a wonderful experience. It was just our family of 3 plus one other couple on the trip. It was a very personal experience. Rudy picked us up on time and was very knowledgeable. He has a good relationship with the Embera tribe. We saw their ceremonial dances and even joined in on the... More

After an overnight in Fuerte Amador, we spent the entire day at a primitive Embera Indian village deep in the jungle. An enjoyable 45 minute canoe ride on a river and lake is required to reach it. We were entertained with local dancing and a fresh fish lunch. Our independent individual guide was Garceth Cunampio. Garceth was born and grew... More

One of our fellow cruisers had arranged this tour and we were 8 off our cruise ship to take it. Garceth met us at the tender stop and took us, and another couple who stayed at a hotel in Panama City, in a van to the canoe boarding site. The trip was more than an hour. During the trip, Garceth... More
