They took care of everything, airport transfers, excursions, hotel, meals, tickets, etc. and it all went extremely smoothly! The excursions, a.k.a. adventures, far exceeded our expectations.

Loved the trip through the canal. Location of boat was easy to get to from Panama City, the boat was clean and comfortable, and the tour guide was very informative. Perfect way to see the locks in action without doing a full transit.

Thank you for your review! Indeed, for a good sample of the Canal, without expending the whole day, the tour you choosed was the best option. We are glad you enjoyed it!
