    Excellent tour! We saw lots of monkeys, a crocodile, a sloth up close, iguanas, lots of birds and of course, the big cargo ships crossing the canal. Our guide Alejandro was very friendly, knows a lot and explains the history of the canal very well. The captain of our boat was very good at finding animals. We did the excursion in the morning before our flight and it was perfect as the last day.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion. Alejandro was an excellent guide. We saw different types of monkeys and even a sloth (which is not typical, we were told). Family friendly. Road was terrible, but the tour can't control that!
