As a solo traveler, this excursion was everything and MORE. Our guide and driver were very attentive to each passengers need and questions. A 5 hours excursion that felt like different trips in one. Guide made sure to speak in both Spanish and English to accommodate to everyone. We were able to do everything written in the description and got a little tour/history lessons about the country as we drove through the city to the city. Thank you Nefi and Manuel of Panamazing for a wonderful time and for loving what you do.

Christian picked us up promptly and took us to the park, pointing out items of interest along the way. The weather was great the entire hike. Unfortunately, we didn’t see too many animals or birds along the way. But, the park was beautiful, the conversation was interesting and entertaining, and the hike was enjoyable. We highly recommend the expert for future travelers.

A great tour! Gondola ride through the rainforest, boat trip across the Panama Canal to the "Monkey Islands" and at the end saw a Cayman at lunch. With pick-up and return, a whole day with many beautiful impressions.

The guide was really good, full of interesting information, The tour three places, was varied, the rainforest from the gondola breathtaking, the lunch good

I absolutely loved this excursion. If you love nature and animals like I do, then this is most definitely the tour for you.
