We had a great time on this excursion. At 40USD/person, it is definitely not a cheap activity however we saw many wild animals and great scenery. Tour guides were wonderful and very friendly. Would recommend doing this tour early in the day to avoid rain as you will most

We did the Gatun Lake trip, which was only an hour including the boat journey to get to where we might spot any wildlife. Yes, we did see a monkey and a few birds, but it felt it was like a quick trip, and once they’d found them for us, we were on our way back.
