Excellent tour for the history buff
Carla_C

Raphael was excellent. He was a fountain of knowledge and personable. His narrative of the founding of Panama, the ups and downs of its history and the fascinating story of the construction of the Panama canal was engrossing. He enthusiastically answered every question. I would recommend this tour especially to a history buff.

Alex Tells It As He Sees It
Chris_B
, Aug. 2022
I would have rated this tour as a 4 out of 5 because we spent a little too much time at the souvenir shop, but I upped the rating to 5/5 as Alex took the extra time to show my son and I the area where the city began. The "old town" was closed as it was Monday, but we had asked about it and so we drove through the area. Alex shows the good and bad of the city, and is very street smart. This was well worth the time and money. I also appreciated the ride to the airport -- you show a lot of initiative!

Alex was an amazing tour guide. His knowledge of Panama is superb and he is such a fun tour guide. We loved learning all about the history of Casco Viego and he knew just the right places to take us. He also had a great backup plan during the rainy season if we had any rain. He was also very accommodating of our two young children and stroller. I would highly recommend this tour.

Leonardo was a phenomenal guide, extraordinarily knowledgeable, and very personable. When we met locals on the street, they referred to him as “the book” or “encyclopedia.” His knowledge was both vast and personable. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Panama!

Alex is by far the best tour guide I've ever had in all of my travels. I went solo and we were a small group of 3 and he was still energetic and so animated. He also gave great recommendations for places to eat and ideas for other tours. A+++ Worth every cent!

Amazing tour! Enrique was an outstanding guide who superbly took the group through the tour adding colorful context along the way. The group was able to take away the richness of Panamanian culture and see native wildlife at various stops along the tour! I highly recommend this tour, request Enrique and you will be pleased!

You know you're on the right tour when your guide gets a wave and hello on every block. Alex was great. A local, respected guy who took us where every tour goes and where other tours just don't go. Download Whatsapp. So easy to communicate with the guides and tour operators. We has a slight change in schedule and got a message right away.

Hi !!! Thank you so much for letting us being part of your holidays here in Panama. It was great to meet you Anjail. Keep enjoying life!
