Panama City: Panama Canal Eco Cruise and Embera Village Tour
- Pickup available
- Duration options: 8 - 8.5 hours
My husband and I had a great day with our guide, Mario, and his spotter Julietta (she was on the lookout for monkeys, sloths, etc.) I learned a lot about the history & geography of Panama. Saw the Aqua Clara locks, watched the short movie there and watched a large ship move through the locks from Gatun Lake. We loved seeing Fort Lorenzo and reading about the history there. Mario was a fun and knowledgeable host and guide. We saw both a two & thee toed sloth and a family of howler monkeys in the tree tops, two types of hawks and an iguana. Our group was small, 6 guests, and were picked up at our hotel. Perfect day!
Had a fantastic day, long bus ride but the talk from the guides made it enjoyable - Mario made it funny and not boring to listen! The fort was beautiful and Juliette is the best sloth spotter of them all!! All three guides were great, good enthusiasm and good information. Hurrah.
Great experience and extremely well run! I strongly recommend this tour group. We were the 1st tour group to arrive at the canal and able to see plenty of boats pass through.
Guide, Mario was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. Wish there were some vantage point from which to observe the locks operation.
Mario was great. He was engaging during the tour and taught us the historical significance of each place we toured. Highly recommended.
