The pros: Guides always matter, and our guide (Gonzo!) was friendly, happy, and informative. As a local with perfect English, he was great to help us learn more about the area. He also was clearly comfortable with all the folks we interacted with along the journey. Extra points for Gonzo! If you like monkeys, you'll love this tour. The guide... More

This was actually a great tour with a really great guide. I would highly recommend. My one gripe was that we booked with Urban Adventures and the tour company that actually led the tour was a different company - and I think other people on the tour who booked directly with that company paid a little less than we did....

I highly recommend the "Taste of Panama" tour. Our tour guide Ross was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Panama, and the tour was a great way to be introduced to the city and the old town. Not only that, but it was delicious! Coffee, chocolate, beer, ceviche, and a cocktail at the end with a view!... More

We took three of the Urban Adventure tours: Panama City and Canal, The Taste of Panama and The Panama City Jungle Experience. We not only had an extraordinary experience, our highest expectations were exceeded. The guide for the Panama City and Jungle Experience, Ross Alford, was knowledgable and not only taught us a great deal about the culture, history, and... More

Jeff collected us from our B & B and was full of information about our day's outing and Panama in general. Our first event was to board the boat to travel down the canal, up close to some of the ships making the transit and having some of the details explained. Then it was off to monkey island to feed...

A friend and I took the "Panama City Jungle Experience" tour and it exceeded our expectations. Our guide Darren was very likable and knowledgeable, and overall it was a great experience. I highly recommend this tour company.

I enjoyed this trip immensely. Jeff our guide was Canadian and also spoke excellent Spanish. It was a small group size which really helped. We spent some time in small boats cruising around lake Gatun after a short passage along the canal. It's an impossibly beautiful place, lush green and exotic. We Started by spotting different monkeys on small islands... More

We had great fun cruising the Panama Canal on small speed boats with our guide. He pointed out the sights and had bananas to feed the monkeys. We really enjoyed the visit with the local indigenous people--our guide had a great relationship with them . Definitely would recommend this trip to others.
