We are coming to Colon 2000 on Feb.8th with MSC Divina. We are looking for a tour of at least 6 but would like to extend the trip to 3 others. We are travel agents and have a small group going. The canal including the new locks are most important to us. Any wildlife or anything else would make it an A+ Thanks!

I am sure Almirante tours would be able to accommodate you. We spent time at the canal and also toured the old fort and the rain forest. We saw a number of animals on the tour. Sloths and several kinds of monkeys. We had... More

My partner and I will be in Colon on 9th March 2017 as our cruise on Thomson Dream will be in port from about 10am to 6pm. We are interested in doing the Eco Cruise on Gatun Lake & Locks with Thomson but they are not offering this excursion now. We don't want to miss the time slot getting back on cruise ship and are worried if we book it with an outside company. Has anyone done this excursion with Almiza Tours and if so how long the excursion takes? Thanks.

Mario and Almiza Tours are very reliable. I didn't take the Eco Tour but a tour of the Rainforest, Panama Canal and historic fort. Contact Mario for specifics. Enjoy your trip!
