This was an amazing tour! Gonzo was so informative and personable. He picked us up at the port. His English was perfect as if he grew up in US but he was born and raised in Panama and provided tons of great information about growing up in Panama. We drove through a rainforest and heard the history of panama canal. The locks were so cool to see from above and we watched a few ships pass through while we toured the museum. We saw some great views of panama city and stopped at an animal reserve area to see turtles, frogs, lizards, fish, etc. We saw a number of sloths sleeping and on the way out saw a very active sloth. Yes ACTIVE. Crawling through branches, eating leaves, etc. That was a super highlight. More views then we parked in Panama City. Gonzo took us on a very informative walking tour. We had a great lunch at local restaurant. Did some shopping for local crafts. He then took us to our hotel by airport. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour and ask for Gonzo! You will not be disappointed. Hope to be back sometime soon.

Juan provided a great tour. He provided the history of Panama, Panama City and Colon. He also provided information related to standard of living in Panama. We were able to eat at a local restaurant - the food was excellent. We spent time at the canal, old town and new town and many other areas. We were on a cruise and Juan's tour covered two tours that were provided by the cruise line. He provided history of the canal and gave us a tour of the previous US base. The van was good as well. Very clean. We would highly recommend this tour.

Tour guide Gonzo was great, but they need to show up on time, not 1 hour and twenty minutes late. They need to offer some cold bottled water on the tour.

We were picked up right at the port terminal and driven straight to Panama City. Toured the old city and then taken to the canal locks. Edgardo was very good at telling us the history of the area and canal. Highly recommend the tour.
