From the beginning the communication was perfect. We were picked up early, and the second we got in the car we were already laughing. The tour guides are hilarious and are so educated on everything. This is a great activity for any age. Dress comfortable, take bug spray, and

We had such an amazing time on this tour. The guide picked us up early in order to make sure we were the first ones out to see the animals. We saw all kinds of animals, had a fantastic hike and a great lunch with hummingbirds. I would recommend this to anyone!

The boat part was only 1 hour but advertised as 1 and a half hours. Also we left so late because we waited almost an hour for a big bus of people. By the time we got there we only saw 3 white faced capuchin monkeys because it was after 11 and the heat of the day there are no

Response from Jerin T, Owner at Panama Canal Eco-Cruise and Rainforest Discovery Center
Responded 7 Mar 2020
Please put this review under the correct business or delete this review. It's been posted in the wrong business page. Our company is called Panama Day Trips, and they are referring to a company called SunWing. We do not work with SunWing and never have. We have never even heard of SunWing tours . All of our tours start at 6am from Panama City so we arrive in the rainforest around 6:45. We have never arrived at 11am because you can't see any wildlife at that hour. We limit our groups to 10 people to avoid large groups. We never have anything to do with large bus tours. Also, we don't visit any restaurants for lunch, we only do picnic lunches in remote areas. We do not have any tour guides named Erik. We do not offer vouchers to redeem in 1 year. It is obvious that the tour was taken with a different company, not Panama Day Trips. Please delete this review as it's very clear their complaint is about a tour company called SunWing and not us. We cannot accept any more misplaced reviews as its affecting our ranking and therefore our business because of other companies not doing their job and us getting a bad review for that.

This was our first trip to Panama and our first tour on our trip. It definitely exceeded my expectations. The boat ride was the highlight, with the monkeys coming on our boat (Awesome!). At the Rainforest Discovery Center, we got amazing pictures of hummingbirds and sloths.

Jerin contacted us the day before and said we have the option to leave an hour early (5:30am) on the tour to see more animals and avoid the heat of the day. We took him up on it and didn't regret it. Early sunrise boat ride on the canal to monkey island was well worth it. Walk
