Most amazing day of my life!
Sorhay is an amazing woman. She was prompt, friendly and just all around amazing!! Very knowledgeable about Panama and made us feel like family. She could see what an amazing time I was having and made sure I got my fill. I can't thank her enough for the wonderful memories! At least this was one thing that we could still do with everything closed because of the virus. Sorhay was wonderful and having a private tour made it even better!! Best tour I have ever booked!!!

My dear Mr Donald and Mrs Trish I am happy that you were able to see a bit of Panama during these days of uncertainty. Lucky me to be with a respiratory specialist for over 25 years and a nurse during this tour in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The universe always conspire in my favor. You did enjoy those tamarin monkeys like no one else Mrs Trish, uh!... and those cuties were around minding their business for a loooong time... I am sure you could've stay there all day long but at some point we had to go... lol... At least, you had the chance to enjoy the last tour of the month before Panama shut down the airport and the country was put in quarantine. Both of you were simply the kind of relaxed, easy going and well versed people we enjoy having on our private experiences. Sorry I could't get you chocolates because everything was closed. I am sure you are enjoying your mountains in NV and showing your grandkids the bunch of pictures wuth the monkeys. It was an honor to serve you and you may need to come back to see the Real Panama at a different time when the world goes back to normal. Hugs from Panama Sorhay

Highlight of our vacation
Feb. 2020
The Monkey Island Tour was the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Alex, was fantastic.
He picked us up at the hotel right on time. He was extremely knowledgeable about Panama and the animals we were going to see. We saw not only the monkeys but birds, iguanas,a crocodile, a porcupine and my personal favorite, a sloth hanging from a tree as we left the lake. All in all a fabulous tour! I highly recommend this tour.

Dear guests Thanks very much for your kind words about my Alex. I am extremely happy to read these lines that confirm, one more time, that Alex is awesome. It is not easy to find great guides and Alex is among them. Alex is normally at the pick up location half an hour earlier (just in case traffic gets crazy as usual in Pamama). You picked one of the best experiences that really showcase what Panama is all about: our tropical rainforest, our wildlife and the Panama Canal. Again a million 345,231 Gracias from Panama and Alex send his regards. We wish for you many more safe trips, love and health. Sorhay

Amazing tour
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We were 11people on tour with Sorhay
We couldn’t have been done happier with her and her itinerary.
She was scrupulously honest, knowledgeable and most importantly caring. I have been on many trips and tours, this was by far the most enjoyable
I would highly recommend her for the real Panamanian experience

My dear Dr. Steve and Mrs Jackie Only you and your wife had a Private tour. The monkeys didn't dissapoint and showed up to make you smile like little kids. Thankfully Mrs Jackie recup from her short illness and didnt miss out on this experience. I should have recorded the valuable life lessons you were giving me from the back seat. It was beautiful to have an open conversation with you and Mrs Jackie, to hear about your love story, about your grandkids and what is important while we are on this earth. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You, Thank you, Thank you for trusting your vacation time to us. A warm hug from Panama Sorhay

Great outing!
Feb. 2020
We spent a wonderful few hours with Sorhay, who is energetic and fun. We were picked up on time at our hotel, and then stopped at a grocery store for some fruit on the way to the boat. Sorhay made every effort to provide opportunities for us to see the wildlife from the boat - monkeys (some of which came on the boat so we could feed them), a baby crocodile, a lizard, birds - while at the same time (not least important) being respectful of the animals and their habitats. In addition, during our conversations we got lots of additional information and advice about Panama. Many thanks for a great outing Sorhay! Absolutely recommend!

Trip to Panama Canal and Jungle
Feb. 2020
Our guide Alex was the best! We were picked up at our hotel on time and made our way to our boat, we stopped at an amazing grocery store and bought provisions which included bananas, pineapple, water, etc. Stopped a few places on the way to see a sloth with a baby in the trees, how Alex spots these, I will never know, but he did and it was amazing, we hopped out of our car and he shook the trip tree to alert the sloth, very cool. Then we stopped and saw a speckled caiman (alligator family) and her babies, very cool.
We get in our boat with Jose as our captain. Jose was incredible, he knew just how to pull into an area where the monkeys were and had a call that brought them to us. Amazing journey on the canal and Alex is so informative and explaining everything to us. As a side note, if you have the time, I would suggest going to the Miraflores Lochs the day prior to your tour to see the museum and also the 3D Imax movie of the Canal! It very much tied everything together for us the next day being actually on the canal and in the jungle.
On the canal we were next to huge container ships, cruise ships, etc. A little scary, but so amazing!
When we ventured off to the small channels we got to enjoy the amazing wildlife! Everyone talked about feeding the monkeys and the more we thought about it, probably not a good thing as they will then depend on humans feeding them and never be taught those skills that they need to survive, so think about that before you feed them. Believe me, we had a sweet little guy that came aboard and jumped on our Captain and hung around his neck, then sat on our guides lap and climbed across my legs. I was a bit nervous and wish I had laid back a bit, because he was harmless. We went to another area and the monkeys jumped all over the top of our boat, so funny!

We truly saw everything and never once had to give them food. Please consider this option of no feeding and this jungle will continue to thrive.

Thanks Alex for a very memorable trip! Truly the best ever! Jackie and Win

Mrs Jackie and Mr Will Alex is the best indeed... He loves natures and you can feel it his bones... That's why he is part of The Real Panama Trs team and I am happy to know he exceeded your expectations... Josecito, out boat driver is a force too... his expertise with the boat and knowing were to go is what he does best... that white faced capuchin that got on his neck looooves him... I am taking notes of every word you've said and agree with you in everything... I have passed this message to Josecito and Alex and you've made their day... Thanks very much for taking your invaluable time to write about your experience... Best regards, Sorhay

By far, it is the best tour we have taken. Monkey Island was an awesome experience, and our tour guide was so helpful and accommodating. If you are in Panama, this is a must-do activity!

Best day in Panama
Dec. 2019 • Family
Things started out a little rough as we had some trouble connecting with each other before the tour, but once Sorhay got there, everything was perfect! She is so nice and friendly! She spoke with us the entire time we were there either telling us cool facts or asking us about who we were. Her car was clean and in great shape! On our way to Gamboa we had to fight the traffic because it was Christmas Eve but we all chattered away making it a great time. She stopped off at a local store to pick up some fruit for us as well as drinks. Once we got to the boat docks we are off on a Grand Adventure! Being able to see the huge 161foot wide boats on the Panama Canal up close made you feel so very small. The monkeys were amazing too. Sorhay and Jose our boat driver knew exactly where to find them. With a little bit of fruit we soon had monkeys climbing all over us. Jose even tried to capture a baby gator but the little guy was to fast. She then took us to the Gamboa Resort because we had a sloth tour booked after. Traffic made it so that we had to cut our Monkey Island short but she stayed with us to make sure we got back to her hotel after the sloth tour. When she found out we are going to San Blas the next day with a different tour guide and that my father did not have a swimsuit packed she then took us to a store in the city so he would have one. This was way beyond what was expected!!!! I only wish I could have had her as our guide for the entire time we were here. She was so amazing that every other tour we took was just boring.

THIS IS A MUST DO TOUR IN PANAMA!
Oct. 2019 • Family
The hotel pickup was quick and easy. Our guide, Sorhay, then took us to a local coffee shop to start the morning. We stopped at a market for fruits and juices and saw 3 sloths all before we even made it to the marina. By boat we saw the huge transit ships on the canal and at the islands we saw 3 kinds of monkeys. We were able to feed the monkeys and they came on the boat on several occasions. We also saw ñeques, birds, iguanas, frogs, and Jesus Christ lizards. We ended our day walking through the jungle and climbing to natural pools in the river. The jungle was a really fun surprise!

Sorhay was truly one of the best guides we have ever had on a tour. She was informative, fun, and really wanted us to have a good time. We were a group of 5 friends and everyone agreed this was the highlight of our trip to Panama. The private tour was amazing and well worth the extra money! We all got lots of monkey time and photos with the monkeys. I don’t think that would have been possible on one of the more crowded boats with lots of other people.

Sorhay took pictures for us throughout the day so we could focus all of our attention on the monkeys and the jungle. She even edited them at the end before airdropping the to us. It made the experience even better to not have to worry about trying to capture photos.

We ended the trip by stopping for dinner at a beautiful restaurant that over looked the bay. It was delicious and a perfect way to end a perfect tour! We would highly recommend this tour with Sorhay as your guide!

My dear Mrs Hillary, the twin, the police officer, the nurse and the Macayo's manager: I am happy to know we surprised you with that walk on the jungle and went above your expectations. Isn't that area like a movie set but better? ... We got lucky to walk through the jungle and to spot the howler monkeys and to habe that sanctuary just for us. Cool uh! That day nature was very active and we were lucky to see so much wildlife, although, I can't do that all the time... it was your simply a very good day! You and your twin sister are world travelers and it is awesome to know we were up to your standards. The Carpaccio de res to finish up the tour was delicious, uh! It always fun to take the pics and see the expressions of visitors when the monkeys get so close. Glad you liked the memories we recorded for you all. Hopefully the Police Officer is wearing that Monkey Hat she got as a gift after the road trivia to test your knowledge about all the things we saw during our daytour. It was fun to have you all. Keep traveling and enjoying this short and beautiful life!! Hugs from Panama :-) Sorhay

Fantastic time - a real gem!
Aug. 2019
Our family (including 3 teenagers) had a delightful time with Sarhay on the monkey island/Panama canal tour. She was fantastic, spoke excellent English and kept our kids engaged throughout the tour. Sarhay was knowledgeable and really delivered on this wildlife outing from sloths to three types of monkeys (lots on the boat!) plus crocodile sightings and more. I highly recommend tours with this company!

It is stuck in my head... I am happy to know you had fun with our monkeys and appreciate our green and lush jungle... The ice on the cake, Travis Jr finding the baby croc.... hahahahahahaha... a real baby croc shoe.... and his picture was awesome! Hugs to all of you You are deifinitely lucky to live in one of the nicest places In the US... San Diego, California... Sorhay
