I genuinely didn't expect much on this trip. All I wanted was to see a sloth- I didn't. That being said, Mario was a brilliant guide. He started the tour early because of the rain and took his time to ensure everyone was comfortable and that we'd have a blast. He told us we might not see the three monkey sp. but we did. The white faced capuchins boldly interacted with us of their own accord and the tiny tamarin was a bit more shy although it too came into the boat. The howlers lazed around in their tree just vybing and howling from time to time and we also got to see aggressive displays by two alpha male capuchins across the river from their their respective islands. Honestly, I'd pay more to experience this as the cost was more than worth it. Further, Mario was extremely interactive and friendly with us but mostly importantly, honest. I forgot my phone on the shuttle after the trip and he ran back to drop it off. Please take this trip and support these guys. I promise you won't regret it. I wish we had more time in beautiful Panama to do more tours with them but I'll return sometime and hopefully do another tour with them.

Excellent boat trip and guide with lots of monkeys!

This was the highlight of our trip to Panama City! Our tour guide was Marivella and she was wonderful! She spoke excellent English, gave us a brief overview of Panama, the canal and the monkeys that we would be seeing. She properly set expectations that we may not see all types of monkeys. Yet we were luckily that her team knew where to go, how to call the monkeys, and we say all three different species! It was great fun!

The monkey island tour was so worth it. Mario was such a great tour guide. We stopped at a little restaurant to grab drinks and food before heading to the boat for monkey island. Getting to see the monkeys was so cool and a little scary at first when they jumped In the boat but overall cute and friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour

One of the best excursions I've ever been on. The guide was amazing, driver amazing, captain amazing, and we even had two monkey whisperers! No really, they called the monkeys out the forest straight to our boat. I would think the monkeys were paid actors because they were also great. Definitely recommend!!!

This was a really great tour! Mario was our driver and he provided lots of information on the area and the monkeys. We were able to see three species and two species came to the boat for snacks.

It is critical to take the morning tour and since the monkeys won’t come out of the trees when they get full.
