Excellent tour. I was considering visiting these places on my own, but so glad I booked with Miguel. He was so helpful and incredibly knowledgeable, and his explanations of the history of the places we visited really added to my tour experience.

Manuel did an excellent job with our group of five people. I would highly recommend him if you’re in Panama and look into doing a tour

Punctuality in the pick-up to start the tour, our very friendly guide Erick, gave us an excellent tour and explanation of things.
