Description

Take an aerial tram ride to traverse a mile-long (1.6-km) tract of tropical forest that lies within the Gamboa Rainforest Resort. Have fun with an ecological experience, see the incredible tropical exhibitions, and enjoy sweeping views of local wildlife and nearby shipping on the Panama Canal.

The tram ascends 280 feet (85 m) over half a half-mile (800 m) of ground, ending at a spectacular viewpoint atop a hill. From here, walk to the observation tower, climbing 100 feet (30 m) up a mildly inclined ramp. From the observation tower, you get great views of the Panama Canal and the Chagres River, as well as the surrounding forested areas of Soberania National Park.

The aerial tram ride was great and the transportation was fine. The info about the tour in Expedia indicated that a guided tour of exhibits of butterflies, orchids, and frogs, was included. The tour contact said no, and that no guide was available. After m ycontinued insistence he called the tour operator, Aventuras 2000, and I was given the additional activity. Note: this tour is more expensive than those given by other operators.

Guides and driver were great, enjoyed them, but advertised as six hours with refreshments but was just 4 hours including drive. Not a Grayline tour. Felt really ripped off at $170 each

Nice tour. You tram up to the top of the gamboa rainforest. And take in 360 views. We didnt see any animals unfortunately. Guides and nice and knowledgable. 4 other exhibits are after you come back down the tram: frogs, butterflies, authentic jewlery, and orchid garden. From there you have lunch which is really delicious. You can eat outside and enjoy the nice weather and views.
