Don’t book with Tony’s Panama Tours. Waste of money, you’re better of going to the locks by yourself. Uber will take you. The tour guide will not pick you up from hotel and then tell you to spend your money to get to the tour. No thank you, very unprofessional.
Tony was amazing! So fun and incredibly knowledgeable. He knew all kinds of facts about Panama City, the canal, the locks, the people - you name it, he knew all about it. We booked last minute but he was able to accommodate us. He picked us up from our hotel, and we had one other solo traveler with us so it was a great personalized experience! We also got lucky on the day we went - 3 ships were passing through the Miraflores locks so we really got to see it in action. He then took us around the city and to different parts, explaining everything and giving us all kinds of historical facts as we went. I felt like I should have been taking notes! We ended in the old part of town at the seafood market and had a delicious lunch. Highly recommend this tour if you do not have an entire day to devote to being in the canal - it was a great way to see lots of different things.
This man is amazing. i feel like i did/saw everything in one day. Please do this tour. he was professional, courteous, He knew was he was talking about. He brought us everywhere. We saw/understood Panama in just one day. He also does other tours. Guy, he is the guy. he gave me his card, im going to post it her. just email him and he will answer all of your questions. He is amazing. Please wear tennis shoes, bring water ( i didn't but he provided me with water for free), and have fun. bring some money for food, and please trust him wherever he brings you. This guys was freaking out thinking we were gonna die just because here was an area of history Tony brought us that was not the best looking. like, he was being so dramatic and annoying. please don't be that guy. He does other tours too such as bird watching, snorkeling, kayak, etc. I just truly enjoyed this tour. Best part of my stay in Panama. He even brought us to a restaurant in between the your (please bring money for that), and i had the best fish fillet. sigh. also he'll bring you to a duty free place as well.
Great tour with JC. Only three of us in the tour so the service was very personal and customized to our requests. Nice clean minivan, safe drivng. JC sure knew the history of the canal, the old town and the city in general. Highly recommend the tour.
Great day long tour of all the highlights of Panama City. Arrived at the canal early before the big crowds, major plus. Very knowledgeable guide on the history of Panama, US military in the country, and the Canal.
Great day out! I was the only person on this tour, so I basically got a personal tour guide of the city. I really appreciated that, since the day before my tour got canceled because I was the only one that had booked the tour. Overall, it was great learning about the locks and JJ amazing guide made sure I had a great seat to see the ships coming through the locks. He also provided more history of not just the locks, but also the city. He gave me a tour of the old quarter and took me to some scenic areas to take pictures. I highly recommend, especially if you're a solo traveler!
Private tour where we controlled the speed of each visit. Canal was great, a must see. Wish we had of had more time to walk around the old city. Walk up to ancon hill was great but very hot. Great way to see the city.
