    Small tour of 3. Guide was on time at hotel. Amazingly she spoke in English and French! She shared information about the areas we traveled through, the history of Panama and the Canal.she was always open to questions. Saw so much and shared a delicious lunch not included. I am glad I spent a day on the tour as I tell people about the things I learned.

    Amazing Tour. Our Tour Guide Janeth was great; very entertaining and knowledgeable. The Panama Canal visit was incredible. It’s truly a modern marvel. Casco Viejo was beautiful to see. We also made several other stops. Would definitely recommend this tour.

    Efficiently booked via the internet and I received an email the day before confirming the exact time of my hotel pick up. It was just Jorge and I. Not many companies will run a tour for one. I appreciated that. Jorge was friendly, informative and accommodating. He ran a "bilingual" tour for me so I could use my Spanish. The mobile app he used meant we arrived at the Canal in perfect time to see two ships transit. Fascinating. The rest of the tour was equally good, Casco Viejo, including a good coffee shop stop, photo stops, the Causeway etc. He spotted 2 sloths, one of which we were able to stop for. I could not fault the tour. An excellent start to a Panama visit.

    Comprei um tour pela Viator, cujo operador, na Cidade do Panamá, foi a Barefoot! Adorei o passeio! O guia Jorge foi excelente, me forneceu explicações bem interessantes sobre o país. E o tour foi bem completo, cubrindo o Canal do Panamá (com chegada na hora que dois navios estavam passando), Amador Causeway, Puente de las Américas e o Casco Antiguo. Gostei demais! Consegui em algumas horas ter uma boa visão da Cidade do Panamá!

    O passeio foi excelente, passando pelas principais atrações da cidade, inclusive chegando ao Canal bem na hora do trânsito de navios. O guia Jorge foi sensacional, me explicou muito sobre o país! Em poucas horas, consegui ter uma boa visão da Cidade do Panamá!

    Jorge was a great guide. He spoke both English and Spanish. I was one of only 3 on the tour (Max 8 I believe). Jorge had the app to know when to expect a ship in the canal so he customized our tour around that and we saw everything else based on getting to the canal dock in time to see a ship pass and see the lock system at work. Quite a spectacle.

    The tour was wonderful -- comprehensive, fun, active, and informative. We did this tour on our first day in Panama and it was the perfect introduction to the country. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Had a great time!

    Isaac is an excellent guide! It's the perfect introduction to Panama City since it was our first time there. From the tour of the locks, bridges and the canal to the Fish and Butcher's Markets, Amador, and Casco Viejo, it gave us a good idea of the layout of the city and where to first good restaurants and markets. We ended having lunch at the Marina before Isaac drove us back to the hotel. It was a great tour!

    This tour served as a good overall introduction to Panama City. It was especially good for someone on their first trip to this city. I would recommend the tour. My only complaint was that it was a little pricey for what you got.

    Good experience to know the history of the city. More than plenty of time to enjoy the canal museum and old town since the amount of tourists are significantly less than precovid. Highly recommended.
