    This excursion was amazing. The guides, the boat driver and the hotel pick up were all excellent. We traveled to 3 different islands and saw monkeys on all of them. They came down to the boat to snack on bananas and peanuts. On the drive to board the boat, our guide gave us alot of information about the monkeys.

    Friendly staff and fun dance moves. We enjoyed our time on the red cat. I was surprised that there were so many of us, but it was so much fun that it felt like a big family!

    Exceeded expectations by far !
    We had Esteban as our guide and he picked us up at the hotel. We had 8 in our van and he was the best driver, guide, and companion on our day.

    We had a gentleman with a bad leg who used a cane, and Esteban was BY his side the entire day to make sure he was safe and secure.

    YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TRIP.
    Spending 2 hours at the Embera Village is life changing.
    You really get to spend quality time with the people and their kids. amazing.

    Wonderful experience! This was a perfect way to spend half the day being introduced to the canal, the wildlife and the jungle, as well as enjoying traditional Panamanian food. Our guide John was exceptional in making the whole experience 5 stars. He was prompt, very knowledgeable with any questions our group had, and gave recommendations for things to do after the activity. I would for sure recommend to anyone visiting Panamá for a weekend or longer!

    We really enjoyed our Ocean to Ocean tour. Our guide, John, was amazing, and was a wealth of knowledge, not only about each sight, but answered all kinds of Panama related questions along the way.

    The pre-tour communication was very clear, including the pick up schedule, which was great and worked out very well. Everyone on our tour was ready on time, and we were on our way to the first stop as scheduled.

    The mini tour bus (a late model Toyota Coaster) , was very clean, and the cold water was plentiful and available whenever you wanted it, and the lunch provided was fresh, and prepared for us on spot.

    This walking tour was excellent thanks to our guide, Alex. Is was extremely informative about the history of Old Town Panama City. He mapped out a wonderful tour with great details about everything we saw. Alex was fun, enthusiastic and went out of his way to make this a memorable tour for us.

    The tour with Franklin as our guide was over the top, it was a blast to say the least! Everything went so smoothly and the good times were rolling! The sanctuary and boat rides were amazing and the fact we got to feed the wild moneys and even see one with her baby was outstanding! Franklin is extremely knowledgeable and speaks English very well and can communicate great! Nothing but thumbs up and smiles for this company and the way they handle business from start to end even picking you up at the place of asking and dropping you off at the end with all the possible knowledge about panamá city and whatever else your mind wonders about! 10/10 no questions asked will be returning forsure!

    I had the best time on my trip to see the monkeys, and I'm really glad I booked with Cesar! He's very knowledgeable and caring about the wildlife (and was great at spotting tiny lizards or interesting birds in the trees as little bonuses for us to experience), and made sure we all had a safe trip and were respectful of the natural environment. Great communication about tour pickup and expectations for the day. I also appreciated how much Cesar was able to contextualize our experience within the history of Panama as a country, with additional info about the canal, the natural lands, and more. I would've been happy with a relaxing boat trip to see the monkeys, but this was also so much more than that.

    Very nice place for a get away from the everyday life. Nice and calm place. Not much to do on the Island except swimming, reading and playing games. It was a very very bumpy ride to the port. We got very delayed because of a storm which is fair, but no one told us anything about it so we just sat in the car and waited for 40 minutes. We then got to the Island and found out that water was not included in the price and we didn't know we had to bring our own water... So we had to pay 2USD $ for 0,5L bottle of water... For two people we ended up buying 10 bottles... The food was mediocre with little variety (rice, fried fish or chicken and some Vegetables) which wasn't great for Vegetarians... We met some lovely people on our trip and talked for hours after dinner and watched a storm in the distance with a lot of lighting. The people on the Islands doesn't really speak English so be aware of that.

    This tour was the perfect way to experience the Gamboa rainforest in all its beauty! This tour is perfect for families or solo travelers. We started off on a boat tour of the Panama canal past ships traversing the canal to visit multiple islands with monkeys - we saw three different species! Then we took the aerial tram through the rainforest and had some breathtaking views of the Chagres river followed by a trip to the sloth sanctuary and butterfly conservatory before lunch on the river where we saw turtles and caiman!

    We had an amazing day! Our guide, Gonzo, was both fun and knowledgeable. Plus he ordered up perfect weather! We learned a lot about Panama and the canal. We saw three different species of monkeys and even had some eating out of our hands. There were sightings of a crocodile and a sloth as well. Additionally seeing the indigenous village and how they maintain their traditional way of life while living in this modern world was quite unique. The respect that Gonzo showed for these people and their culture was ideal. We also enjoyed the walk through the rainforest and learning about some of the plants and insect life. This was our best day in Panama so far!

    Visiting the Agua Clara locks of the canal was a thrilling as the Miraflores centre. It was less crowded, had better viewing platforms and we saw more happening. The guide on the history of the fort was excellent, and during the journey to and from Panama City we learnt much about Panama’s culture and society. My only wish was that our forest walk had been longer, say an hour and a half rather than 30 minutes. Appreciate it’s a lot to fit into one trip.

    What an amazing tour! My 11 year old loved the waterfall swim and the food (fish, plantains and fruit) were so delicious. The Embera people were so hospitable and lovely. Make sure to grab some mamon at the fruit stand at the launch site. They are delicious.

    The trip with San Blas Adventures was definitely one of my life’s highlights. The crew was amazing and every day enthusiastic and good vibes, especially Yann the lead guide. Livvy and Aida did a great job in the kitchen and with the organization. We learned a lot about the Kuna culture and got many insights in their life. It was especially cool, that one of the guides, Hector, is a Kuna himself and could explain a lot about the culture and traditions.

    I’ll definitely do the trip again!
