What people are saying about Panama

It's worth every penny! this was like doing 5 different tours in one! we were a little sad we didn't get to visit the Embera village like some of the reviews say but everything we did was AMAZING! The food for lunch was absolutely delicious and the views were breathtaking! my fiance and my mother joined me both of which get pretty sea sick and both enjoyed themselves, no motion sickness! super smooth boat ride. 10/10 recommend this tour! unforgettable!

The tour was very good, it was the established time and full of good data. The very professional guide despite the rain that kept us busy all the time. Highly recommended to know the history of Panama and some other curious fact, especially if you want to know areas of the old town, do it with someone from the area, since apparently doing it on our own can be somewhat dangerous.

This was a fantastic trip - well worth the price! Tony was excellent, knew his stuff and the time flew by too quickly! He also went out of his way to help my wife and I because our pick up location was out of the norm.

Wonderful synopsis of old Town Panama’s formation, while taking in all the sites at a leisurely pace. Alex brought the history, architecture, culture and renovation to life! I really enjoyed it.

We loved the tours. Very punctual and interactive, I recommend them...thank you Tony for your very kind service..
