TWO HOURS STANDARD TOUR TOURS AVAILABILITY-IMPORTANT: All tours offered are available upon request and are usually private. If you don’t find any dates availability, please contact me to open a date for you, min two persons. A trip to Monkey Island and Gamboa region represents one of the best wild excursions from Panama City and even better when it is a private trip with me. The meeting point will be the Gamboa public dock preferably early morning (better to explore the fauna and to be the first one on the spot to avoid the tours agencies but the timing is of course flexible). You will have to leave your hotels 45 minutes prior the agreed time at the Gamboa Public dock which is the time for the ride in Taxi or Uber. The fare shouldn’t be more than 20 dollars. If needed, I can organize the transport for you. During this tour, you will have the chance to observe the white-face monkeys, howler monkeys, and Geoffrey´s tamarinds and birds. We will observe the birds, monkeys and others flora and fauna from the boat. You will not only to get to see the flaura o fauna but also to see transiting ships on the Panama Canal, Rio Chagres River. The excursion duration is approximatively 2 hours and can Always be extended. I will act as a captain and helps you to spot birds and other animals. I only speak few words English, however, we can exchange email in good English before your arrival
