My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We stopped over in Panama on our way home from Peru to experience the Panama Canal. Unfortunately, on the day of our tour booking no ships passed through the locks during our visit. However, when we were informed by the canal authority that several unscheduled ships were making their way to the locks and would be arriving within the next half hour/fourty-five minutes, our group asked to stay to see their passing. Our guide Gonzo was very flexible and rearranged our itinerary to accommodate our requests. Everyone enjoyed seeing the ships pass through and we did not miss any other planned stop on our excursion. In addition, the city tour was fascinating, experiencing a Panamanian lunch delicious, and all was enhanced by Gonzo's charm, humor, historical perspective and narrative, and flexibility.
Ross was THE best! I'd made the reservation for the wrong day, and he managed to get us on the tour anyway. He was knowledgeable, funny, and patient. He knows everything in Casco Viejo and at the locks like the back of his hand, with the ability to answer a TON of the curveball questions we threw him. He was also extremely honest about the current political and social situation in Panama. He was patient and kept a watchful eye on us all, and even left us with one of our trip catchphrases Well played. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour - definitely a highlight of the trip. Tip: if you meet at Cafe Unido, get there early to sample the empanadas get the spicy jelly and the ridiculously delicious green tea!
Had Ross as a guide. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and is a good ambassador for the area. Watching the locks at work was very interesting and a good learning experience. Loved the outdoor reserve and got some great views of sloths. Had a delicious meal in a local place so got to try out local food. Tour of old town was full of history, stories and certainly left one with a sense of the development of the country and how it faced various challenges. Excellent tour for giving an overview of what you need to know to explore further if you choose.
The best the tour guide got us to the Panama Canal early before the crowds. I got photos of 4 ships. It was great. He also took us to a great place for lunch off the Amador Causeway. Great view of the skyline. Great tour of the Casco Viejo where he lives.
Loved the day we spent in Panama. Excellent tour.
Knowledgeable guide and time was taken to show everything
Gonzo was a fantastic guide, very smart and very accommodating! Would recommend this tour
Gabe was an AWESOME tour guide! He was well informed with the history and sites we saw as well as gave extra consideration to the places we wanted to see! We will definitely tour with Gabe again!
I highly recommend this tour.
A perfect way to learn about Panama and visit many different districts in the city.
And a visit to the canal is a must.
