    Beautiful beaches, sailboats, and blue ocean. Kuna natives were friendly and helpful. Beautiful resort huts and with facilities. Snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, walk around the islands, and/ or just relax in the fine sand.

    Awesome trip that takes you from the Pacific Coast (Panama City) to the Caribbean Coast (Colon), as well as Monkey Island, Gamboa, and San Lorenzo/Fort Sherman. Our tour guide, John, was fantastic. John really has a great understanding and knowledge about the history of the canal and the wildlife of the isthmus. I highly recommend this trip if you want to experience the canal, wildlife, and history of Panama up close and personal. If you have the option, I would highly recommend requesting John as your tour guide. John is like an encyclopedia so feel free to ask him anything including info on restaurants and more.

    The personality of the tour guide.
    Very customer oriented company.
    This one tour by itself made our four days in Panama City successful.

    This tour was the best tour that I have ever been on. My first time in Panama and our tour guide name was Gustavo. He was very knowledgeable and patient and he was very popular amongst the locals and knew all of the great spots to take you to get that Panamanian feel. It was an awesome time and he is a great guy.

    once in a life time experience. Important to point out how close this is to city. pick up time is usally around 8 and i was back in the hotel arond 3pm which was great because i still felt like i had most of the day left. the canoe ride was inspring and we even got to see some wild life. The walk to the water fall is a short walking distance but most definetly breath taking. The Food that the indigenous people provided was EXCELLENT!!! Fresh perfect portion. This is a must

    Dan was our guide and he was very friendly and gave us lots of background about the history and structure of the canal. When we went to monkey island, he did a great job getting the monkeys to come out to the boat. He also did a great job taking pictures and videos for us! Since it was Panamanian Independence Day, the visitors center by the canal was closed, so we had extra time and Dan offered to show us around sites on our drive back; he drove us around the American neighborhood and showed us the Panama Canal administration building, with all its symbolism. We had a fantastic time and highly recommend!!!

    Best way to know the city around and it history. Enthusiastic tour guide and very professional. He didn't mind to answer all the questions we had. 2.5 hours of walking with good sitting "breaks" during church visits in the AC.

    Amazing day Long Trip. Panama Marine Adventures was Fantastic. You need to know the day starts with a 04:30 hotel pick up and a 18:15 return. The sites and educational facts on the tour were over the top.Breakfast, Lunch, Snacks and refreshments were outstanding. A true bucket list experience.

    My husband I had a private tour of Panama City with another couple, and it was fantastic! Our tour guide Jennifer was so friendly and gave us such great information throughout the tour. At every stop she took pictures of us on our cameras for us, and it was so nice not to have to rely on always less-than-perfect selfies. When our group mentioned that we were going on a cruise the next day, Jennifer made sure to time our visit to the Panama Canal absolutely perfectly so that we could see our ship going through the Mira Flores Lock on its return from its time at sea. Everything about the tour was perfectly timed and we saw all of the important places in Panama City that we wanted to see. Plus we learned so much about the Panamanian culture and people. We really can’t say enough about how great Jennifer is! Definitely one of our very best guides and tours that we have been on in over 25 years of extensive international travel!

    Beautiful islands and friendly people. Just need to be prepared for cold showers, limited food and drink options. If you want something other than, water, beer, or juice, you will need to bring it. Also bring a towel!

    The waterfall hike is a bit of a hike so you should be prepared for round trip 5 hours with mud and water.

    Very memorable trip and glad we roughed it for a few days to have this experience.

    Being inside the locks is fantastic. Our guide was fluent in English and Spanish and very informative. Buffet lunch was tasty and pretty good for feeding 220 people. Well organized excursion, the hotel pick up was on time and efficient.
    We went through the locks with a 5,000 car roll on roll off Panamax ferry! The 1/2 distance was long enough to get your $$ worth, not so long as to take the whole day. Just right for us.

    I really glad that I decided to take this excursion, the trip was very smooth and relaxing. The crew made this a 10/10 experience. For example, due to my hasteI forgot to take my swim trunks with me, one of the crew, was kind enough to let me burrow a pair that was in storage, if not I may have been pushed to swim in my pants. Again this trip is well worth the time and money.
