This is really a can't miss trip. The highlights for us were the powered canoe ride to the waterfall and the village. The villagers were warm and gracious and we truly enjoyed the falls and village.

We were picked up at the port and toured the Gatun Locks before entering them the next day. After the locks, we were taken to a "dug out" canoe and rode about 30 minutes to the Embera Village. There we enjoyed a "local" lunch, dance, and music. Unfortunately we had to leave the Village about an hour early due to... More

We only had 4 couples on our tour so we could spread out in our van. The van was comfortable with AC and clean. Ivan provided us with water, soda, and... More

Friends on the cruise had taken ship's tours in Costa Rica, rainforest, monkeys, etc. and said they saw almost nothing but heard monkeys in the trees. So we had some trepidation's when arriving in Colon. One small problem, the directions to this tour are incorrect. When you come out of the cruise terminal you WALK along the building towards your...

We booked the CL1 Tour (locks, monkeys, rain forest, fort) tour while visiting for the day on the Celebrity Equinox. Our guide Alex was the highlight of the tour with his extensive knowledge of history. His biology degree helped with identifying native plants and animals. I especially enjoyed his "jungle survival" talk while on our short "rainforest" walk. I don't... More

We took the Locks/Canoe Trip to the Embera Village Tour. We were travelling on cruise ship and booked this independently to fill our day. All arrangements were made without trouble and we were picked up in a comfortable mid sized bus. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic throughout the day. Our first stop was the locks which was very interesting... More

I will admit, we were apprehensive about exploring Panama as we arrived via cruise ship and were warned by several people about safety issues in Colon. We also were contemplating the tour as pricing seemed a bit steep. I am very happy we decided to move forward with the tour as it was a wonderful experience, safe, and worth the... More

Mario sure has his act together. This tour is not only priced reasonably but well worth recommending to others. Transportation was fairly new and air conditioned for comfort. Mario met us dock side as he had promised us. We were introduced to our guide Alex(is). Alex held degrees in biology and his expertise really showed through. While driving to first... More
