Totally Worth It!

The most memorable part of this tour for me was the professionalism, kindness and knowledge of our tour guide Roberto. He went above and beyond to show us the beauty of Panama. There were accommodations avalible for me to go straight to the airport after the tour concluded which eased my mind. This tour made my brief trip to Panama perfect. 😁

Our guide Ricardo made this trip a great moment, knowledgeable and keen to modify our tour after our special wishes of what to see from the participants. The Miraflores locks are fascinating!

Roberto was a great tour guide. We booked a group tour, but lucked up and it was just us two so we had our own personal tour. He was very thorough with his explanations and showed us a good time. He was also very patient and allowed us to enjoy our time without feeling rushed.

The people from Conozca Panama Primero were excellent! Our tour guide Ricardo Morales is extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant. The bus was big and comfortable, and snacks were provided. Great private tour for a family.

The Tour Guide Makes ALL the difference

The tour guide, Nilda, was like a history professor, at a guest lecture event. She was very personable, and an excellent communicator. My family was very comfortable with her. She expended all efforts to successfully allow us to see the last ship of the morning go through the Miraflores lock. Other tour guides should learn from her!

Gustavo is an excellent guide. He's very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information and interesting facts. Our tour was scheduled for the morning. We got to the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center at 8:10 and we were told that the last ship had already left the canal. Since seeing the ships pass through the canal was an important part of the tour, he offered to rearrange our schedule so we can come back in the afternoon. As a result, our tour got extended an extra two hours. We used part of that time to have a delicious lunch at the fish market. Rafa kept us updated with the pickup time as Gustavo was running a few minutes late due to the protests causing traffic issues. The price is very reasonable for all the sites that we saw and for that quality of service provided.

Roberto, our guide, picked us up promptly at 6:45, the arranged time. He was knowledgeable and friendly, and made the tour really special. We saw a cargo ship make a full transit through the Miraflores locks, which was pretty interesting. Roberto did an excellent job of explaining the process. We the. toured through the Panama Canal Authority complex, and he showed us other local sights. After a brief stop at the Amador Causeway to take pictures, Roberto took us on a walking tour of the Casco Antiguo. Again, he did a great job of explaining the sights. I highly recommend this tour, and Roberto as a tour guide.

What an amazing tour! Roberto picked us up exactly on time at our hotel in Casco Viejo and was amazing right from the start. He is extremely knowledgeable about his country and was happy to answer all of our questions. There were 5 of us on the tour and 3 of us were educators so we asked loads of things. Roberto was so accommodating and I felt like I got way more than what I paid for. My husband and I both said that after taking this tour, we felt like we could end our trip that day and feel thoroughly satisfied with our visit. That's how good it was. Definitely book this and be sure to actually ENGAGE with your guide; ask all the questions. These tours are made better when there is conversation between everyone on board. You learn so much more that way!

Expected too much
Georsadd_G

I was kind of disappointed with this tour as it was highly rated. Maybe I was just expecting too much. I suggest you just do the actual Panama canal tours rather than stopping in the visitor centre to see how the canal works. I should have just booked a tour to see Casco Viejo.

Hola Georsad! Thanks so much for reviewing us...! We are very sad that we did not meet your expectations, but thank you very much for mentioning it and helping us improve our service... Our tour visits the Panama Canal Visitor Center because not all of our travelers have the time to transit the Canal by boat. Our Half Day City Tour also visits the Old City (Casco Viejo) and many other places of interest in PANAMA City For me it is a privilege to have served you during your stay in Panama... Until next time Amigo! Rafael Tello Your Host & Head Director Conozca Panama Primero Tours +507-6676-6665 (WhatsApp) trips507.com trips507@gmail.com @ConozcaPanamaTours @RafaTello507
