Overview
We emigrated from the UK over 10 years ago and we know what you're looking for. We always put you first, but the quality of our tour locations are a very close second. We won't tolerate establishments that merely tolerate tourist travellers. They have to excel in in Service and Quality, or we leave them out. This tour is a favourite for the more active Cruise ship passengers and tourists alike. We spend a day enjoying local wildlife, culture, food and drink. The rainforest section can include light and easy walking for up to 1 hours, and then a much more adventurous active hike for the second hour if desired. If not we can hop back on the bus and meet the rest of the group at the finish line.

My wife and I signed up for a local tour with Manta Tour Guides (Manta Ecuador). Until we took this tour, we always used the cruise ship's excursions. Our experience with Manta Tour Guides changed our ways. This company was excellent. We did more and saw more attractions

Visited during cruise of South America and enjoyed the area. Bought an original Panama hat after watching the people making them. Very hard working people who get little money for a full days work.

Juan was great! Itinerary was very full. Definitely got our monies worth. Improvements would be a meal sooner or some sort of snack before lunch. About our best tour in SA yet.

We chose this particular tour because it is advertised as including a 2 hour hike in the rain forest, but we were there for less than hour. When this was brought up to our tour guide she had no clue about it..................

Hello Barbara, I'm very sorry to hear you did not get to complete the 2 hour hike. Can you confirm which date you took the tour, so I can investigate further. I imagine the park ranger may have warned against competing the second half of the hike if there had been heavy rains, as it can get very very muddy and slippy. Which can happen from time to time.
