    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.

    Had a great trip with this tour company. Great customer communication about departure time which was a real issue for me in Panama using other companies. We were picked up right on time and there were 6 of us on the tour. We saw the 3 monkeys that inhabit the islands. We did feed peanuts to one type and banana to another in case that is an issue for you. Also the monkeys do come on board the boat. We had a monkey whisperer on board to call the monkeys. Our guide was very friendly and seemed to know a good deal about the different types of monkey. Her English was quite good despite being a second language. This 7-11 tour fit in great for our afternoon flight. We greatly enjoyed!

    Excellent trip with John and Manuel! John is so informed and educated for local tips and history. Manuel was an excellent driver and friendly assistant. The whole experience was very informative, exciting and ticked off all the boxes for me. Highly recommend this trip with these guides.

    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

    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.

    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.

    My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour. It is exactly as advertised. Alex, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and an active participant along with us. The jungle tour was incredible, the waterfall was spectacular, and then going to the indigenous embarrastribe. The learning of their customs and watching their performances was incredible. I would highly recommend this tour.

    What an amazing tour! My 11 year old loved the waterfall swim and the food (fish, plantains and fruit) were so delicious. The Embera people were so hospitable and lovely. Make sure to grab some mamon at the fruit stand at the launch site. They are delicious.

    This was a great tour. Was able to see three different species of monkeys. Consider bringing a raincoat as it can briefly rain especially if you are sitting in the front. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Would recommend.

    I booked a day in advance and was lucky. It was my best day in Panama during a business trip. The pick up was on time. Robert, the guide, is very nice and knowledgeable. We were lucky with the weather as it only rained for a little while. The boat tour along the Panama Canal/Chagres river, passing the huge ships, was exciting. The boat captain and guide were amazing. They found us a sloth up in the trees. We also saw howlers, tamarins and capuchins. I was disappointed to see another boat where people were encouraged to feed the capuchins by hand, which made the monkeys totally fearless of approaching humans. The air tram ride to the forest canopy was beautiful, although we saw no wildlife there. Climbing the tower seemed like a challenge but we made it and it was worth it. The bonus was finding a beautiful frog there. The view was spectacular. We then went to see butterflies, frogs and the sloth sanctuaries. There were also gorgeous orchids. It was a beautiful experience. Finally lunch. We were hungry and the buffet at Don Caiman was just what we needed. The food was quite good, the desserts fantastic, and the view was beautiful. I would do this tour again.

    Very efficiently run with good communication from the organisers this tour is worthwhile. It is not cheap but given how difficult it would be to organise this on your own the price is ok. We had a very pleasant guide who was extremely helpful. We didn’t visit the butterfly centre which I wasn’t interested in anyway but I don’t know what others thought. A small group of 4 people meant that it was easy to take our time
