5 StarsThe Tour Guides Were Amazing!August 13, 2018

Reviewer: Rosemarie B.
We did a tour of the canals in Costa Rica. The tour guides as well as the boat's captain were extremely informative and knowledgeable. They pointed out all of the wildlife including howler monkeys, sloths, and beautiful tropical birds and fish. They delivered us back to the ship safely and in plenty of time. Highly recommend!

Hands down, this the best excursion that we did on our Panama Canal cruise! Our tour guide and driver were amazing and went above and beyond to assure that we saw as many animals as possible during the day. We stopped at a local market for fresh fruit and coffee, as well as had the chance to shop for local crafts. Totally awesome tour!!

Tour guide was excellent, tour sites were excellent.....I would do this again. The tour description should be a little more expletive as where to meet the guide.

Jesus was our tour guide and did and excellent job. We did our river exploration in a smaller boat than other boat tours, but was still big. This allowed us to get to many places the other tours couldn't get to. Jesus took us off the better roadways to see spiders, colored frogs, and many other creatures. I highly recommend this tour and be sure to pick Jesus as your tour guide if possible. I am sure the others are also good.
