Lively. Knowledgeable. Respectful. Recommended. Our guides from Barefoot, Tereza and Gonzo, had great rapport, were enthusiastic, and very engaging. Tereza was also kind with our ever curious elementary-age child. Tereza and Gonzo really knew their stuff. We loved that they shared stories about their personal experiences, individual animals, and the unique knowledge of the Wounaan people. They also showed warmth and regard for the people. We got the sense that they really work with them as partners. Which we appreciated. They were also respectful of the wildlife we encountered. We learned a lot and had a great day. Highly recommend the tour.

This tour was wonderful - Cesar, our guide, followed all safety protocols which made us feel at ease. Cesar gave us extensive history and facts on the Panama Canal, the Canal Zone, and other interesting tidbits on Panamanian history throughout the tour. He was also very knowledgeable about the different animal and plant species we encountered on the tour, and made sure our Monkey Island visit was memorable! We boated by different locales searching for different species, and he and our boat captain did a great job spotting different animals and giving us facts about each one.

Our tour was private, the driver went above and beyond to ensure we had an excellent day. We invited him to join us on the second leg of the trip! He politely declined. We loved the experience.

Teresa was an amazing guide and she made the trip a really fun and interesting one. Plus she speaks English fluently so it’s really easy for tourists to understand the tour.

The driver/ owner and guide was fantastic. Saw numerous monkeys. Had a blast. Highly recommend.
