not a dull moment anywhere on this tour. The best tour operation in El Valle. 3 hours of driving your own ATV, swimming at a 100 ft. waterfall and splashing through at least 5 streams as you wind your way up and down mountains in the jungle. An adventure not to be missed!

I Had contacted the owner and booked the tour for 7 people well in advance and had also given a $250 deposit to reserve our spot. Our group was going to be in town from March 20th to March 24th and we were all travelling from the US to Panama for the first time. I contacted the owner a week before our arrival to double check and confirm everything (thank god), only to find out from him that he is in the middle of some legal issues and he would have to cancel the tour. Our group had booked a car to travel 2.5 hours from Panama city to El valle and planned out the entire day around this, so needless to say we were extremely disappointed/angry. If you are going to cancel for whatever reason at least call the customers in advance and let them know so that they can try to make other arrangements, Especially when you rush them to send the deposit to reserve the booking saying "oh its peak time and spots are filling up quick". The owner claimed that he didn't call cause he was waiting to see if his issues got resolved which in my opinion is really selfish. His suggestion was to wait till Saturday (which would have then been 4 days before our arrival) to see if the tour could still be done. We didn't want to wait any longer and asked the owner to cancel the reservation and to send us our deposit back. We were lucky to find another ATV tour last minute in that area or else the entire day would have been ruined. Notice that the last review on tripadvisor is almost a year old. Tripadvisor needs to at least make sure businesses are still running or else mark them as closed cause people from out of town depend completely on these reviews and this business is the first thing that pops up on tripadvisor when looking for ATV tours in panama. I should have read the google reviews where people had mentioned that the place is shut down and/or is being illegally operated... idk what the exact deal is, but instead i blindly believed the 150 five star reviews on tripadvisor.

Shivraj: As we discussed on the phone, The business is not shut down. I have been working at least 80 hours a week and attempted to get a partner to alleviate the load. That did not work out before we even started working together. So now, I have been in the process of selling the business and continuing to run the operation for the new owner. This will cut my working time down to a normal 40 hours a week. You knew all this when we discussed everything on the phone over the course of four days. You also received your $250 deposit immediately! I am sorry that you are still unhappy, even though you seemed quite understanding on the phone. I try to please everyone but that is not always possible.

A fun filled adventure with Neil and Cody, Atving was amazing in El Valle de Anton. The trip was well worth the 2 hour trip from Panama City. One of the best thing is the waterfall along the trip, I would definitely recommend going for a swim. All in all the Taharaa ATV tour is one adventure that needs to be done while in Panama, it never never compare to the other atv tours done in Mexico or other central american countries.

My wife and I were in Panama over July 4th (during the off-season) and were looking for a fun activity to do. Neil and his grandson provided an AWESOME experience and we had a wonderful time. It was a little overcast and humid, but the machines were great and the trail was fun. The waterfall was running hard, but we were still able to get a good swim in.

This was my third tour with Neil and his grandson Cody... This time I went with a friend from France and, just as the first time, the experience is breathtaking... The landscape and nature are just amazing. Niel makes sure at every moment that you're having a great time, while keeping safety as a priority. Great ride for families and adventurers... Another way to explore this beautiful country. Totally recommended and I will certainly do it again!

Hi Jose: Thanks for the TripAdvisor review. Three tours and you keep coming back. When you get to 10, I'm going to have to knock two dollars off the tour! I look forward to your next visit with your daughters. Thanks again.
