Monkey Island and Village Tour
We did the Monkey Island and Village tour. We really enjoyed seeing the Panama Canal in a unique way with large ships passing nearby. We always felt safe. We were able to see 3 species of monkeys, a crocodile, a coati and a variety of birds. The monkeys were not aggressive. I highly recommend this tour. Make sure to eat before or bring snacks. The tour is long. You get more than you pay for.

INTERESTING AND EDUCATIONAL
Excellent tour. I enjoyed the various types of monkeys. The guide was very informative. This tour wasn't physically demanding. I liked the boat ride too.

Great experience, easy for families, highly recommend; combo of animals, action, history, but not too demanding
Our family of four (two kids ages 8 & 10) had a great time on this tour. The guide, Gonzo, was very knowledgeable and engaging and my kids loved his historical storytelling. For other moms worried about practicalities, there was a snack stop where we got great pre-cut fruits and veggies and tropical juices (we're from the US, and had no tummy issues with them), and adequate bathroom opportunities. The car ride to the boat was very educational about Panama, and the boat ride was safe (life jackets for everyone) and not scary for my sensitive kiddos. It was awesome to get to ride in the canal, on Lake Gatun, and go up the river a bit. My kids were very interested to see the village, and we learned a lot about the indigenous cultures of the Panama region. Our favorite part, hands down, was the monkeys, though. We saw howler monkeys, and got to feed banana bits by hand to the capuchins and Geoffrey's tamarins. It was amazing to see them up close and learn about them and their history on Monkey Island. It was also neat to see responsible and sustainable conservation in action - the guides know a lot about the monkeys and watch out for their wellbeing. All in all, it was one of our favorite days in Panama. Oh! Also the forest walk was really interesting - it was a great way to learn about local plants and the rainforest. Bring bug spray though! I'd highly recommend this anytime, but especially as a first day in Panama trip - we came from the US, and although Gonzo was born and raised in Panama, he speaks perfect English, so communication was easy, and the trip itself was so varied that the day went by quickly, but it wasn't very physically demanding, and was a nice combo of van/boat/walking.

Fun & informative
We took the tour with Gonzo - & he was great! I had been on other tours the previous days & the way he presented information about Panama was so much more understandable! I also enjoyed the day with the various activities & that the village we went to seemed more authentic than others I had heard about.

Best Monkey Tour in Panama
My family and I had the most wonderful time with the monkey tour. Hands down one of the best tours offered in Panama. Gonzo, our tour guide was full of awesome information, stories, joke and just all around wonderful person to spend time with. If you have children this will make their day to watch and hear the monkeys. What an amazing experience. Thanks to Kevin and Barefoot Panama for an unforgettable adventure.

Great choice
Favorite part was monkey island and riding the canal. Unless you're buying artifacts, I wouldnt do Indian part. Tour guide was great though.

Fun-filled fascinating day
My husband and I had a blast with our guide Diego and all the activities on this tour. We met several monkeys up close, then enjoyed a unique presentation in a nearby Indigenous Village. The boat ride on Gatun Lake in part of the Panama Canal was a thrill. The day was full of energy and fun! I would definitely book another tour with Barefoot Panama.

Knowledgable guide, excellent experience!
Highly recommended! Gonzalo is an energetic, passionate Panamanian with near-perfect English and an incredible command of history and politics and culture of his country. We enjoyed our time with him as much as what he showed us. We got lucky and saw all 3 monkey species on the islands of Lake Gatún. Also had a wonderful experience visiting the Wounaan people at their village. They were so generous, and everyone work masks (as is the law across the country). Wonderful crafts and dances. Kevin was prompt to reply and gave us info and options during the booking process.

Post Lockdown Tour
My visit was at the beginning of November 20020 soon after lockdown had ended and was fortunate to find Barefoot Panama. Most tourist attractions were still closed but the Monkey and Indian village operated as normal. Carlos was my tour guide and was personable, knowledgeable, and a great guide! Highly recommend Barefoot Panama as they will come through for you when other's can't to provide an amazing tour.

bit costly but worth it
Had a fantastic time on my day trip with Barefoot Panama. My tour guide Gonzalo spoke perfect English and was extremely knowledgeable about the history, the current events, and the biodiversity of the region. He was very friendly and professional. I had a very customized experience and really loved feeding the monkeys and talking to the Wounaan community. Would recommend!
