very prudent and polite
Jose_C, Nov 2022
very polite drivers, prudent, know the way. we felt very safe throughout the journey, both on the way out and on the way back, in both cases with a lot of rain. The cars were very good, with air conditioning, everything working. It was worth the choice. no problems with schedules. Thank you so much for me and my mother in her wheelchair.
Great Driver

Manuel pick us up from the airport in Panama on time, he helped with all of our luggage. Once we got situated in the car he let us knw we had a 2hr drive and we could stop after 1hr for a break we chose for him to just drive since we were tired and had a long day of traveling. The drive was smooth as possible with him pointing out different sites and giving us a lil history lesson on his country. He was a very nice man honestly the nicest person we meet so far. Thank you Manuel

Thank you for your comment.
We love Edwin!!!
Sarah_D, Aug 2022
Edwin was our driver and he was knowledgeable, kind, and made us feel safe and like we were in the best of hands. We had a two hour ride from the airport to our resort and it went by in a flash. We couldn’t recommend him more. Thank you Edwin!!!
Sooooo good!

The transport was amazing! We were picked up at the airport on time, and was given a brief tour of what we passed on our way to the resort. The resort was about two hours, so it was a while, and it was expected. The car was nice and comfortable both trips. Our ride back to the airport was even better than the ride to the resort. Our driver was so knowledgeable on the history of Panama, that it kind of became a history lesson as we drove through. Both of our drivers were amazing! They both were very knowledgeable, extreme nice and welcoming. I felt very safe in both vehicles. I would definitely book with them again. Communication with them was seamless via WhatsApp. They also sent sms messages as well as messages on WhatsApp to ensure that everything was communicated properly. 5 stars across the board! Thank you so much for making this an even more memorable trip. See you soon!

Great price

The driver was great. The trip from the airport to the hotel was long but the driver and cleanliness of the van made the trip bearable.
Best transportation and tour guide
Kim_N, Nov 2021
The ride from the airport was long but very comfortable in the shuttle. Enrique gave a brief history of Panama during the drive. The driver mentioned the Panama City all day, which my group did. Rafael was the driver for the tour and Daniel was the expert tour guide for the walk and drive in Panama City. The best part was the lunch at the fish market.. delicious food and Margaritas. Rafael also played Reggae music for us during the ride. Rafael drove us back to the airport and stopped at a local store for us to get breakfast. Very good experience, friendly, professional and affordable prices for great transportation service.

Long ride, nice people
Shaena_F, Aug 2021
Levy was personable and although the ride to playa blanca from the airport was long (2 hrs) our driver kept us updated on how much longer we had.
The travel from PTY to RIU!
John_K, Aug 2021
The initial encounter with Enrique and interface during the two hour drive to destination filled with positive information regarding Panama was most enjoyable!

Great Experience
Damion_F, Jul 2021
Easy pick up at the airport. Driver was very friendly and got us to our hotel quickly and safely. We were staying at the Riu Playa Blanca. It took 2 hours.
Great experience
Rachel_P, Jun 2021
Our driver was great. As soon as we landed he sent a message with his photo showing the sign he was holding with my name on it. Unfortunately, we got held up at the airport a little longer but he was very accommodating and waited for us for additional time. He was considerate and made a stop halfway through the trip so we can use the restroom and grab something to eat.
Excellent Service!!!!!
Ozzie_T, Jun 2021
The driver showed us different buildings, pointed out what locations we passed, and answered all of my questions! He provided great customer service from the airport to my hotel.
Excellent driver
vernellspringer, Aug 2019
Rafael was perfect. He gave us an impromptu history tour during our drive to the resort.. He drove with caution yet getting us to the resort in good timing despite traffic..Van was clean, driver was on time.. I would recommend this service to anyone traveling to Panama..
JANET_T, Jun 2019
Our driver Edwin was excellent. He was personable and knowledgeable! He made a long ride manageable and before you knew it we were there. We would lik to request him for the return ride to the airport.
