This was a great tour, I took it with my sister and a friend and we had a blast. Mario and Juliette were the best guides and gave us a whole historical and cultural background explanation for us to know better about the place we were heading to, and for us to have a better knowledge of Panama in general. They helped us through out everything and gave us advice on other things for our time in Panama, as we were staying for the WYD. We highly recommend the tour if you want to go to the beach. The Portobelo fortress is stunning and the beach is really nice. It is the best best way to visit Colon safely and to go to a Caribbean beach. Even though the weather wasn't the best, we were still able to swim for a while and we got to see many fish.
If you only have time to do one or a few tours while in Panama, this is the tour that you should go on. You get to journey to the Caribbean coast and visit a wonderful UNESCO heritage site and hear about the area's fascinating history. But the highlight will be the trip to the nearby Caribbean island. During my stay in Panama, it was the first time that I experienced sunshine and no rain!, the water was clear and warm, and the view was breathtaking. And Mario is a great guide who is willing to answer any questions that you may have.
Excellent tour, beautiful islands and beaches
We did this trip on March 2, 2018. This was a very nice trip. We got a stop at the Gatun Locks for 45 minutes that was an extra, as we needed to pick up some additional guests for the tour. Then we stopped at Portobelo, which provides a nice chance to visit an old colonial Spanish fort. Very much gives you the feel of Caribbean pirates. Then it was to a very charming island for some beach time. Our guide was able to adjust plans so that we were able to stay at the island a full 4 hours, which was terrific. We really appreciated that the guide Mario arranged things to allow us the extra time. On balance, I think this is a really nice tour so long as you can get plenty of time at the beach. Anything less than 2 hours is not enough. We got 4 hours which was pretty much perfect. Our guide Mario was very helpful and friendly throughout the tour.
The tour was great, Mario was the best guide and really made the trip worth while, it was not only fun but we learned a lot about the history of panama. I would do the trip every time I came to panama it was that great. I recommend it to anyone visiting panama
