    The hotel pickup was quick and easy. Our guide, Sorhay, then took us to a local coffee shop to start the morning. We stopped at a market for fruits and juices and saw 3 sloths all before we even made it to the marina. By boat we saw the huge transit ships on the canal and at the

    My dear Mrs Hillary, the twin, the police officer, the nurse and the Macayo's manager: I am happy to know we surprised you with that walk on the jungle and went above your expectations. Isn't that area like a movie set but better? ... We got lucky to walk through the jungle and to spot the howler monkeys and to habe that sanctuary just for us. Cool uh! That day nature was very active and we were lucky to see so much wildlife, although, I can't do that all the time... it was your simply a very good day! You and your twin sister are world travelers and it is awesome to know we were up to your standards. The Carpaccio de res to finish up the tour was delicious, uh! It always fun to take the pics and see the expressions of visitors when the monkeys get so close. Glad you liked the memories we recorded for you all. Hopefully the Police Officer is wearing that Monkey Hat she got as a gift after the road trivia to test your knowledge about all the things we saw during our daytour. It was fun to have you all. Keep traveling and enjoying this short and beautiful life!! Hugs from Panama :-) Sorhay

    Our family (including 3 teenagers) had a delightful time with Sarhay on the monkey island/Panama canal tour. She was fantastic, spoke excellent English and kept our kids engaged throughout the tour. Sarhay was knowledgeable and really delivered on this wildlife outing from

    Mr Travis: this review coming from you, an entrepreneur and business owner yourself is appreciated from Panama to the moon. It took a moment to wake up the triplets but we managed... lol... (Claire, Travis and Lauren are the first trillizos on tour with us). We saw what you signed up for and a bit more uh!.... Walking barefoot in the jungle to reach the small but refreshing creek, after the pain, fun... hahaha... I am happy the kiddos and Mrs Michelle experienced a real rainforest for the first time because This is Panama. Your advise is still in my head, especially the last one, do you remember it? ... It is stuck in my head... I am happy to know you had fun with our monkeys and appreciate our green and lush jungle... The ice on the cake, Travis Jr finding the baby croc.... hahahahahahaha... a real baby croc shoe.... and his picture was awesome! Hugs to all of you You are deifinitely lucky to live in one of the nicest places In the US... San Diego, California... Sorhay

    I can't say enough positive things about Sorhay and the private Monkey Island tour. My husband and I, and our 2 young kids (7 and 3 years old), had the most amazing time, and Sorhay went out of her way to make sure everyone had fun. She truly was born to do these tours, and you

    My dearest Casey's: Thanks a million for taking your precious time to write that beautiful review. Mrs. Claire you have the most beautiful family... OMG... Dylan and Aria are the cutest things. Let it go is now part of my playlist after my personal van concert (I loved hearing Aria's falsetto.. hahaha)... I will always remember her singing and smiling while I watch that amazing 3 yrs old of yours on my rearview mirror. Please reconsider and have 7 more kids, please... hahaha... Having the ice cream was just an excuse to enjoy your good vibes a little longer. It is never enough time when you are in good company. Hope you made it back home safely and a warm for Mr. Juan. Panama and I miss you! Again, a million thanks from me and Jose. We both enjoyed every minute of our day with you. Sorhay

    My dear Mrs.Nadia, Mrs. Lorna and niña Mimi: The 3 of you are the kind of people that leave footprints and kindness were you go. I already miss the 3 of you! (and I mean it... eh). Your short review, taking your precious time to let others know how we made you feel and knowing that Panama had gone back with you to Canada is really what this is all about. Leonardo, Irving, Jose, Johan (that adorable boy) and I were lucky to have you around for those short hours. Johan, that 7 yrs old boy really made your day. I still can't believe he brought you Popsicles and a homemade sancocho prepared by his mom and on top of that decided to hang out with us during our lovely morning in Chame. The panamanians showed you how warm this country and its people can be. Johan rocked. On top of that, Allllllll the monkeys showed up and enjoying our private boat ride, seeing the sunset at the Panama Canal was just the icing on the panamanian cake... hahaha... If I had planned this trip it would not had been as good as it was... Everything had to flow and it did🤗... I send you all my love, more love and more love wrapped on a warm hug. Hope to see you all again! Mrs Lorna I want to try your food so bad... hahaha Sorhay

    Sorhay came highly recommended from other family members that have used her, and she did not disappoint! Sorhay picked us up exactly on time from our hotel with her clean and comfortable SUV. She provided delicious fresh fruit as well as water. The boat ride along the canal was

    My dear Mr Jonathan: You and your lovely wife were delightful, easy going and veeeeeeeery patient. Just knowing you were Mr Josh and Mrs Liz's son and Mrs.Tamar's brother we deifinitely had to go the extra mile to make sure you were taking care properly. Everything we planned happened and what we didn't plan (the heavy traffic) happened too. Lol. I think the heavy traffic was meant to be so I could set you up with Jose to go the Ancon Hill next day to practice español. (Lol). Thanks a million for writing these lines, hope the pictures with the monkeys sent by email have a better resolution. I loooove having the canadians over, always sweet, relaxed and on vacation mode. You have the best father in the world. You know that! Hopefully you will come back with the 3 cuties. My wish for you is Love, Health and Endless Happiness. AgaIn, a million thank you's Sorhay
