Bookings was easy and tour bus was on time. Juan was very knowledgeable and great planner as well so I didn't stuck in any queue.

The excursion was over and beyond expected by the family and I. The tour guide and driver forgive me if I state their names incorrectly did an incredible job. Thomas, our tour guide, was pleasant and informative who in my opinion went above his duties giving us an educational and delightful day. Our driver, Eduardo, made the full day tour ride very comfortable on that hot summer day in December. The stops canal, museum, and shops and citys tours and sceneries old, colonial, new were amazing and fascinating. Even the lunch, as simple as it was, was surprisingly enjoying. Thank You, Viator.

Our tour guide Juan was very knowledgeable and personable. He put together an efficient tour of the Canal, Casco Viejo and other sights. We spent about 4 hours with him and enjoyed it. Good way to see the city highlights.

This tour was just awesome! Very informative! Our guide, Danae, was a sweetheart and she was the best guide possible for this trip. She was very knowledgeable about the whole city and helpful with tips for things to do places to eat other than during the trip. Definitely worth the money.

My family and I had a excellent time during our tour of the canal and city! Jose exhibited profound knowledge of the history and functionality of the canal. He also had excellent knowledge of the city and marine life in Panama. We give this tour 5 stars!
Thank you.

Giovanni, the tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable. She gave lots of insight about the history of the city as well as current events. She was patient and showed us things that we probably wouldn't have otherwise seen. She was magnificent! The tour was excellent. I highly recommend it.

Our 1/2 day tour was excellent! There were just 4 of us and Alex our tour guide. We couldn't have asked for a better introduction to Panama City. Alex was so knowledgeable and very friendly and enthusiastic. Highly recommend this tour.

Excellent overview of the city, it's history and surrounding areas. A good basis for knowing what else we wanted to explore. Really enjoyed the day with Elmer. He's a good man wanting to help better his community and students.

The tour was terrific, only in part because everyone else had signed up for the full day, so for the half day we had a private guide. And he was the BEST GUIDE EVER -- "Joshua." We have taken tours in cities all over the world, and Joshua was the most informed. He was pleasant, enthusiastic and had a sense of humor. He was very knowledgeable not only about historical sites but about global history and how it impacted Panama; Panamas economic and political history; the relevant US history; current issues and trends in Panama. In 4 short hours, we learned not only a great deal about Panama City and the Canal, but also were given the opportunity to develop a deep appreciation for the Panamanian culture. Well worth the time and money. (Note to Viator: Joshua was not with the subcontractor indicated on our voucher; he was with a tour company; you should get him signed up exclusively - -he is a real asset.) Overall the tour was well structured, hitting the key points of the City and the Canal so we could pick where to spend our extra day in Panama.

So glad I did the city tour—it was great! I forgot to confirm 24 hours before but I called early morning and they were able to accommodate me in the morning tour. It was really like a private tour, just one other woman who was visiting from Norway. Our young guide was adorable and well-versed in Panama City history. Covered a lot of ground, including the Canal, Casco Viejo, the new downtown and the Amador Causeway. It was a great way to see the city in limited time—I highly recommend it!

the guides were knowledgeable and friendly; the tour itself gives you plenty of time at the canal Miraflores lock and through the historic old city.

The tour itself was excellent however the tour guide was an hour late and I had to call several times to find out when he would arrive. It appears he was told the tour started an hour later.

The Canal was interesting.It is definitly worth visiting. We did not see much of the city, but maybe it was because we didn't sign up for the full day tour.

Even though we were in a small mini-van we could not hear the driver speaking. It would have been helpful if he had a microphone.

The trip to the canal was superb and being able to go through the museum, out on the observation deck, and see the movie was very helpful to understanding the canal. The trip down the Amador Causeway and to the section of town where Noriega had his compound was also good.

The tour was fine, our driver was very personable and professional. My complaint is that you emailed me "tour must be reconfirmed 48 hours in advance". It is impossible to do that when you're already on a plane to your destination! By the time we landed in Panama the local tour office was closed. Once we got on the tour, everything was fine and we had a good time.
