Kinda confusing: my review is the first (latest) one, but it uses my "real" name rather than "noseycat". Probably reflects the difference between Review and Forum usage. (Michelle: Perhaps the GCT/OAT IT folks, in their spare time, could take a look at reconciling the differences.)
At any rate, it's a great trip. If you like meeting wonderfully warm local folks; having unusual experiences; enjoying good food; seeing fascinating wildlife; AND TAKING IN THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF THE PANAMA CANAL!--then I think that you'll like the trip. Have fun!
