Started out with the Monkey Island and the Wounann indigenous tribe along the Canal with Ross. He was such an amazing guide, we all had so much fun that we signed up for a snorkeling and Fort Portobelo tour at the Caribbean side later in the week. We learned so much and clearly Ross is extremely knowledgeable in the areas... More

Each guide had their own style, but both were a joy to be around, filled our heads with facts and stories, and showed us local sites starting with Casco Viejo, the outskirts of Panama City, the Panama Canal (as we passed by--enough for...

Ross knew SO MANY interesting facts, history of things and all about the current changes of Panama. We all (including the kids) could have listened to him for days.... More

The partial transit tour through the Panama Canal was a fantastic experience! I would highly recommend this interesting and fascinating tour. We were only at about half capacity on the boat so there was plenty of seating and room to move around. Both the breakfast and the lunch were plentiful and the staff on board the boat were knowledgeable, friendly,... More

We were able to schedule a tour of the Panama Canal for the next day via email with Kevin. He was great and we really appreciated the great service and the tour. The guide was JC, did the half day transit tour which was perfect. Food ok, what you'd expect. Great experience.
