Booking was easy and we were picked up at our hotel on time. The driver was friendly and very knowledgeable about Panamanian history and culture. Once on board the boat, Captain Carl was a fantastic tour guide. We learned about the canal, Gatun Lake, local flora, and monkeys. Lots of monkeys. The kids had a blast feeding them peanuts and...

After researching what we wanted to do in Panama, a visit to the canal and the Jungle were high on the list (as expected). We came across a handful of reviews (i cant believe there arent thousands) for this so decided to look on the website. We looked at the 2 main packages $125 for the day tour or $200... More

Captain Carl picked us up at our resort and took us on a two hour tour of the Canal and jungle. It was both interesting and fun. Near Monkey Island we got to hand feed two types of monkeys who jumped on the boat. It was delightful. We then went to the floating lodge where we had a very nice... More

We were fortunate enough to be able to book a night on the house boat. Most people visit on a day which is great- get to see and feed monkeys, go swimming at the house boat- very fun day trip, too, I'm sure. But to get to spend the night on this houseboat right smack in the rainforest is a... More

He was a bit of a smart Alec and didn't seem... More

I guess some people dont appreciate my dry humor. I have worked in tourism for over 20 years. Some of these years were on cruiseships. Some of the common questions were..What time is the midnight buffet?..Does this elevator go up and down? Now I get...How old is that monkey at the top of the tree?...Where does the water come from...

Jungle Land Panama day excursion is a bit of a misnomer because it doesn't mention in the title that you spend a good part of your day trip on the Panama Canal! The staff at both the houseboat & on water were excellent. The lunch provided was excellent although a couple Americans next to us complained of the lack of... More

It was overall pretty fun, our guides brought out a snake for us to hold, we got to feed monkeys right in front of us, and there was a nice waterfall at the end of the kayak trip for us to jump off of. However, the cons of this trip was that we waited around for a while without clarification... More
