    Super long day! Unfortunately Mother Nature was not on our side at the beginning of the day lots of rain. We waited patiently to see the monkeys and eventually one did come out. You never know as they are in their natural habitat. Our guide was very knowledgeable, patient and great personality. Fortunately for me people on my tour were cool so we were all in good spirits considering the rain. Village tour was nice. Eat before you go!!!!

    Perfect Day Trip in Panama City

    This was such a great day - very worth it! Gonzo was an amazing guide who shared so many personal stories and experiences, as well as deep history, that made the entire day fascinating. It felt like I crossed so many things off my to-do list for Panama City in one day with this tour since it was so well organized.

    Best tour I could’ve possibly done. Gonzo was our guide and he was absolutely fantastic. Very funny and personable. I would highly recommend this tour. You will want to bring cash for the Indian village. They have beautiful crafts they sell. Everyone is very friendly and pleasant.

    Tour As Advertised But Over-Priced

    The tour does show all that is advertised - Monkey Islands and Indegenous Village. But it is very much over-priced.
    icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
    Most offer the monkey island for $100 Or a native village for $100 We combine both for a lot less than $200 If you are upset that we support a native village, bringing tbem $ they need for education and health.. well, maybe you should rethink who you are as a person

    I loved seeing all of the monkey climb on the boat to eat. We were able to feed many of them. We were able to see 3 different species of monkeys, crocodile and bats. Our tour guide made the trip even better because of his knowledge, personality and flexibility ❤️

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Gonzo. He was on time to pick us up for the tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Panama and gave us insight as to how that history impacts this beautiful country and it’s residents today. Gonzo expressed such a deep love and respect for Panama that it is easy to see why so many people call this country home. This was demonstrated in his interactions with everyone that we met ( our boat captain, the residents of the Wounaan villlage, the small business owner of the traditional food shop where we stopped for lunch as well as people with whom we met along the tour). We had the opportunity to see three types of monkeys, a variety of birds, turtles and a crocodile! We also learned a great deal about plants and their medicinal use in the village. This tour was informative, well paced and enjoyable. Having Gonzo as a tour guide was a definite plus! His extensive knowledge and experience is remarkable.

    Amazing tour guide and company!

    This was by far one of our favorite experiences while in Panama! Our tour guide, Gonzo, was incredible and by far one of the best tour guides I have had while traveling. He is extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of Panama. He is very easy going and worked to tailor our trip to fit our interest. He was prompt, friendly and an overall great guide that taught us a lot about Panama. By the end of the experience he was more of a friend than a tour guide and that is something that we really appreciated. In fact, we ended up booking another experience with Barefoot Panama (on their website) and had Gonzo as our guide again, it was like traveling with a friend and we had a great time! He even gave us a bunch of recommendations for things to do while we were in the city which we checked out and were very impressed. Barefoot Panama is a great company and we'll definitely book more excursions with them when we come back to Panama! As for the experience itself it was amazing and I highly recommend it! Feeding the monkeys and riding around the Panama Canal was a lot of fun and we were able to get close to the monkeys in their natural habitat without disturbing them. Definitely one of the best wildlife experiences we have had in a while. Our time visiting the native tribe was fascinating. Gonzo has profound knowledge on the tribe and even taught us some words in their native language to help us connect with them. We were even able to speak with some villagers as we were buying things from them and they were very kind and grateful for the transactions. We had a small nature walk which was beautiful and learned about the biodiversity of Panama. Overall an incredible experience and I highly recommend to anyone looking for an inside look at Panamanian culture! There are a number of reviews complaining about not being able to dance, sing, cook etc., with the natives which is honestly baffling and somewhat insulting to the tribe as they are not there for our entertainment. When booking this experience you must understand that we are their guest and that they are friendly enough to allow us into their space. Cultural competence is important and Barefoot Panama understands that we must be respectful of the indigenous people while we are on their land. Frankly, if you are looking for a show when visiting native people whether in Panama or anywhere else in the world you are better off not traveling. We were happy to visit the village and buy stuff from the villagers since we knew that our money would go a long way for them, especially given the impact the pandemic has had on them. It is important to understand your privilege as a traveler and know that the money spent here is directly helping the community rather than a big corporation. Furthermore, there was never a point in time that we felt "pressured" to buy things from them any review that says otherwise is lying. Before booking please understand that you will be going on excursion with a tour company that values cultural competence and appreciation rather than one that is exploiting native people for capitalistic gains.
