    Everything would be good, but our tour guide spoke English poorly.
    Rainforest was a waist of time. No time for lunch was arranged.

    Rainforest was a funny tourist joke, not real experience; the entrance fee for the new lock was ok, bit too expensive. Fort Lorenzo was the highlight; good spirit of an impressive history
    Bad was that we needed to buy sandwiches in the supermarket and eat it in the car on bumpy streets

    Good mix of things, nice guides, small group. The guide's English was 90%, and his specialty was nature rather than history (my interest). I'd recommend it.

    Mario and the other guide (I apologize for forgetting his name) were very informative and helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. While I liked the opportunity to shop for lunch, I would have preferred a specific stop to eat. They were able to locate a lot of wild animals in the rain forest. I got a lot of great photos. Bring bug spray and long pants and sneakers for the walk in the forest. It was a pretty good day.

    Very enjoyable and informative tour. Everything was very well organised. Definitely value for money. Thank you!

    Well organised day trip to less touristy Canal locks, as well as interesting visit to Fort San Lorenzo. Plenty of time spent at each, and guide was very informative. Would recommend

    This tour was not what I expected,
    I was messaged the day before the tour stating pickup would be between 10:30-11:00 am, I was picked up at 10:35 am which was fine. We dove in a decent mini bus to a parking lot where we transferred to a smaller van and waited about 10 mins for additional passengers.
    Here is where things started to go downhill, the van had a ridiculously loud whirling noise and the AC was non-existence, Panama is an extremely humid place and an almost full vehicle without AC made the trip uncomfortable, adding the noise from which vehicle and the difficulty in hearing the guide with this noise just compounded the misery, this van was not fit for this tour.
    We got on our way none the less made a stop for petrol another stop on the highway to wait for another passenger about 15 mins wait in a hot van and a stop at a supermarket for snacks then onto Agua Clara.We spent about an hour and half at Agua Clara locks probably the highlight of the tour we got to see 2 ships going through the lock.
    We departed Agua Clara and headed to Fort San Lorenzo, the advertised "rain forest tour" was actually part of the the drive to the fort where we dove very slowly along the road with many potholes with the hope of seeing some sort of wildlife, this was not my expectation of a rain forest tour.
    We spent about an hour San Lorenzo Fort which was okay full of history with a nice view of the Gatun lake but not just okay.
    After the fort it was a long drive back to Panama City.
    In a nutshell although the guide was very knowledgeable the unfit vehicle and the content of the tour was a bit disappointing

    Nice Tour going to the other side of the Panama Kanal and Lorenzo Fort, thanks for the good service, nice guide

    This day trip tour was an experience we won't forget! Mario is simply fantastic. We trip a lot internationally and I can't recall a better tour guide than Mario. Smart, funny, personable and attentive. The day itself is long, but worth it. If you're a fan of forts, San Lorenzo is a must-see. Seeing the canal expansion is amazing in itself. Then, you will almost certainly see a fair amount of wildlife up close, from monkeys and sloths to gato solo literally coming right up to the van. Book the tour and thank us later!

    Mario provided great customer service. His knowledge of Panama history, along with humor, provided for a great day. He even pulled over and pointed out sloths along the way to and from the hotel. This was one of two tours of his I used during my vacation. I will use Mario's services the next time I'm in town.
