Surprised at the amount of old buildings surrounded by high rise.

Guided by an enthusiastic man but could not understand much of his accent. He showed us a modern museum and ancient ruins.

I really compared tour companies and felt that Anne Gordon's tour was the best and we were not disappointed. You pay a little more and go deeper into the jungle but the villagers were very friendly and sharing a meal and dance and hiking into the jungle to see their natural medicines and enjoying their crafts it was really wonderful....

This was a good experience from start to finish. I was a little worried it would be "gimmicky", but didn't seem that way at all. Highlights for me were hearing the head of the village talk about their way of life - and the lunch. Really enjoyed watching them cook the fish and plantains. It was DELICIOUS (and beautifully served... More

We had an amazing experience visiting one of the communities, just an hour away from Panama City... What a contrast!!! The people wer so friendly. We were entertained with traditional dancing and encouraged to join in😁 we were proved with lunch of fish and plantains, which was delicious. There is an opportunity to purchase local crafts but it was refreshing... More

We visited as part of our Caravan tour. It is an authentic Indian village. The Indians danced for us and explained their history. The children were adorable and everyone was very helpful and friendly. They sell crafts they make that are beautiful. I got two carvings out of seeds and bought directly from the artist. I also got a temporary... More

Great experience of traveling by motor boat to the village. See the country up close and personal. The Embera were welcoming and interesting. They need visitors in order to survive in their village, or else they must move to the urban area.

Canoeing to the Village ,Garceth, a USA trained naturalist, shared his knowledge of the river and jungle. Greeted at the Village as honored guests, we watched... More

This is a very good tour. Not only is it interesting, but you can feel good that you are helping the Embera people live the way they want to live on their terms. They are a very kind and gentle people. It is not often that a person can step into another culture as easily as this one.
