What people are saying about Panama

The tour was well organized, the pickup was on time and we had an amazing day in the San Blas Islands. In total we were on four islands and had a great guide who speaks good English. However, one should not underestimate the drive to the beach - about two of the three hour drive goes through the middle of mountains with bad roads. Nevertheless, a day trip that is definitely worth it.

I’ve written a full review on Tripadvisor of our experience that I sadly can’t paste here due to the word limit, but in short it was an amazing 4 days. The whole operation ran like a well oiled machine, and although there are a few things that could have been better the overwhelming feeling is it is worth every penny. Highly recommend!

our guide was very good. he was prepared with food for the monkeys which helped us see them much better than other tour companies on the water and he even provided us with water for the day. very informative and thoughtful guide. safe and smooth driver. very good experience

Excellent experience. Our guide was on time. All including the villager always taking care of everybody during the trail trip to the waterfall. Embera people were very instructive about their culture.

Everything happened right on time. The hosts were all amazing and ran a good and safe event for the entire group. It was a great way to see Taboga Island
