We took the Gio Tours 4 hour shore excursion to the banana plantation, river cruise and visit with the native people. Jesus, our guide has a great command of English and possesses a good sense of humor. His local knowledge and enthusiasm for what he does is readily apparent. We would highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky,... More

Great way to spend 6 hours off the cruise ship! Our guides Jesus and Jose the driver were excellent (and funny). No language problem here! Jesus spoke excellent English and his jokes were timely and very funny. Newer bus seated 35 or so, but we booked a bus for 11, so be careful they don't lump you with other groups.... More
