    Amazing experience from pick up in Panama City to San Blas islands. The people were very helpful, the lunch was delicious and the views and islands were one of a kind!

    The Red Cat is a huge catamaran that can comfortably transport 100 people. Perfect weather and calm seas to motor from Amador Marina over to Taboga Island. There is beer and drinks all included making it a festive time. Short stop to let those wanting to swim to jump off and swim in the cool Pacific. Once at the Island, you can swim at the one of several clean beaches, or grab some treats or cold drinks from local vendors. Once back on the Red Cat a lunch is served and you sail pass huge ships anchored waiting their turn through the Panama Canal. Crew is perfect, professional and very attentive. Safe for kids with good supervision. Best for adults without physical disabilities. Tour well organized and on time.

    Great experience to visit not only the locks, but to travel in the waterways that connect both ends. The environment was surprising and the wildlife very cool. Our guide, John, was incredibly knowledgeable about the country, the history of conquests and the canal itself. We passed through Panama for this one full day adventure and it did not disappointZ

    Enrique is a knowledgeable, funny and inclusive tour guide. Great communication - regarding pick up and while on the tour.
    Plenty of small yet meaningful touches - snacks, restroom breaks and great music on the boat ☺️
    The tour took 5-6 hours and was a great way to see the canal and wildlife.
    Highly recommend!

    Pick up was on time. The guide and driver were very courteous, knowledgeable and was able to communicate clearly with all the guests. The bottles of water and chips provided was a nice touch!

    This is a must do while in Panama. The river runs through the hilly terrain..enthralling sight of a waterfall. The folks at Embera Village are very courteous and friendly. They have a great story to share besides the tasteful lunch served along with tropical fruits. Painstakingly made handicrafts are great items to purchase (they really need your support) .

    Our tour guide Ricardo has exceptional ability to keep you informed and very knowledgeable. We were in a very small group so got the best attention.

    this was a great way to tour the city and learn more about the history of Panamà. Ronèl was my tour guide and she was 10/10!!! my tour was a little eventful to say the least lol. i was stung by a bee when stopping for some shaved ice, Ronèl took better care of me than my own mother would have😂 we even stopped for a little treat after to make me feel better! i would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting the city, it’s especially great for solo travelers wanting to get out and explore!

    Eloy was an amazing guide and took great care of us. He customized the tour to fit our requests but still timed everything out perfectly for us to see ships transiting the canal! He knew all of the shorts cuts so we were able to get a prime viewing location. The tour was like taking a ride with a friend. We were extremely happy and saw all of the things we wanted to see!

    Highlight of my trip to Panama was traversing the canal on the Pacific Queen. We lucked out as it was a very busy day on the canal and our tour was full of boats going through the lock. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience. The boat crew was nice, drinks and lunch was also great. Tour might be a bit expensive but it’s definitely worth it.

I fully recommend this trip.

    This was a great tour. John, our guide was so knowledgeable, friendly, and easygoing. I love how animal-aware and conscious this company is. They really want to preserve the natural aspect of the wildlife. The Panama Canal was extremely impressive and we got up close to multiple boats. They also accommodated our dietary needs for the brunch. Highly recommend this tour!
