    The full day private tour with city highlights and monkey island was terrific. Besides having the best name for a tour company ever, My Friend Mario delivered on all expectations. Mario was full of information, which he delivered in a storytelling way that kept us all engaged. He was amazing and we learned so much. He was also very patient with some special needs of our group. We saw everything we came to see and more. Airport transfers were also prompt and affordable. Drivers were very careful and we felt safe. Highly recommended.

    I was only able to book 6 online but i gave Mario a call and he was able to accommodate my party of 10. Our tour guide name was Alex and he did a great job and we learned a lot. Our driver name was Mary and she too did and awesome job. If your looking for a half day tour with good peoples this is it. I would highly recommend Mario and his team of professionals.

    De los tours que tomamos en 6 destinos diferentes, esta fue la camioneta en peores condiciones de las que nos atendieron. Lamentablemente el guia que nos toco no daba muchas explicaciones (no era ninguno de los guias que venian en el email de confirmacion, sino era otro nombre distinto), fue un dia de lluvia y ya llevabamos retraso en la salida del tour por la salida lenta del puerto, y para complicar mas el dia, nuestro guia se demoro en salir porque estaba atendiendo y consiguiendoles guias a otras personas que tambien querian tours y coordinando que les dieran servicio, (tarea que continuo por telefono durante gran parte del viaje de ida a Panama) la primera parada en vez de ser el canal o algo de interes turistico como estaba previsto, fue una zona de duty free donde nos dejo bastante tiempo para compras, y por este motivo ya no pudimos visitar la zona nueva de Panama y el casco antiguo lo hicimos en coche y no caminando por la misma razon. Tampoco llegamos a tiempo a ver a ningun barco en Miraflores aunque al menos conocimos las instalaciones. Tampoco dio tiempo al puente Centenario en el regreso porque ya no daban los horarios. No fue un mal recorrido pero si fue menos de lo que esperabamos. Destacable que si estuvieron en el puerto, fueron atentos en contestar a los mails y dieron el servicio. Con la agencia no hubo inconvenientes en este tour privado. Si recomiendo nada mas confirmar bien con el guia asignado cual va a ser el itinerario y como se organizara el recorrido para priorizar lo que es importante para el grupo y no tener este tipo de decepciones.

    This tour was excellent and gave us insight ad history to the area, we enjoyed Mario, the only unfortunate thing that happened was his tyre got caught in a grate in gutter, as it was missing, and the company would not come to help get him free, but otherwise an excellent tour.

    Not worth the cost and/or time. One of the locations we were supposed to visit was closed. Most of our time spent at the Panama Canal which after seeing it in about 10/15mins you could easily move on to something else. Waste of money.

    The description says it starts at 08:00. I was told by the tour operator that my pickup would be at 09:00. At 09:15 I started asking the tour company for an update. Finally a driver arrived just before 10:00. He didn't really have an explanation for the mix up. In fact, he told me that he was just asked to take me to the Miraflores Locks. He did help me with my bags and was pleasant for the few minutes I had with him. I then explored Miraflores Locks on my own remember you have to pay your own admission. I then met up with my guide Mario who told me that I was the only one on the tour. We then went to Ancon Hill. I am a bigger guy but it took only about 30min to climb the hill to get to the top to get all the views of Panama. We then relaxed at the top until I was ready to go back down. Then off to Casco Antiguo where we did a walking tour of the area. After the tour concluded, we went to a cafe for lunch and then he agreed to drop me off at the airport instead of my hotel for an additional sum. Overall once the tour started it was great... Mario is a good guide and nothing beats being the only one on the tour. However, the initial confusion and delay did mean that the day started off on a less than positive note. Something to consider.
