We had our own tour guide, Jorge, who was very knowledgeable about the canal, the animals and the vegetation, and the Maku Indian culture. Patiently waited to see the animals. He was very respectful of the tribe. He allowed us to question them by translating for us and answered our curiosity. Beautiful picturesque views.

Barefoot Panama has awesome guides and well-built tours! Our group of 43 enjoyed their city tour, monkey island, native village, pineapple plantation and Panama Canal tours. Professional, prompt, knowledgeable! Highly recommend!

We went on the Monkey Island/Indigenous People tour with Barefoot Panama. Our guide, Rafael, was amazing. Very knowledgeable, attentive, and all around a great person.
Kevin was very responsive and helpful from when we started planning the tour until the day of our tour.

I highly recommend using Barefoot Panama.

I am always cautious with tour organisers. I read all reviews possible. Barefoot had very good reviews, but some were bad.

We did the Panama Canal and Panama viejo tour on Saturday and it was AMAZING!! Our guide was there 5 minutes before pickup time at our hotel, he was polite, english speaking, courteous and very knowlogebla.

It was so great, that 2 days later, we did the Monkey Island and Indian Village tour!

Barefoot eas above and better then what I expected. Dont hezitate to go with them.

What a fun experience!

As other reviews mention, you get coffee, chocolate, a beer tasting and a full-sized beer, ceviche, and a rum cocktail. However, I will say, the ceviche tasting was definitely filling. We tried three different types and they were all delicious. I think as long as you know what to expect, you will enjoy this tour! We grabbed some tapas after the experience and were perfectly content!

Jorge was a fantastic guide; we answered all our questions, both about the food, but also his experiences and culture. We had a small group of five and it was perfect; we were all friendly and got to share in the experience. I couldn't imagine this tour with more than 15 people!

Engaging guide. Knowledgeable of how to time island visit and get monkeys to show up. Saw ships traversing lake between the locks (and their waves). Saw and fed several Capuchin monkeys. Saw howler monkeys. Indigenous village visit was interesting and informative. It is a real village. Take cash to purchase their handmade goods. Participants need to be able to sit still and be quiet. Take bug spray, hat and light jacket/windbreaker (if rains). Great combo of activities.

Small tour of 3. Guide was on time at hotel. Amazingly she spoke in English and French! She shared information about the areas we traveled through, the history of Panama and the Canal.she was always open to questions. Saw so much and shared a delicious lunch not included. I am glad I spent a day on the tour as I tell people about the things I learned.

We took 3 different tours with Barefoot Panama during our stay in Panama the week of Oct. 1st. We took the Panama Canal & City Tour, Toboga Island and hiking at El Valled de Anton. The owner, Kevin O’Brien, was extremely helpful in recommending tours for us before arriving, even giving us the tip about doing the Panama Canal & City tour on Sunday as traffic was shut down for part of the day. Kevin gave us the tour on Sunday as well as the Hiking tour. It was great meeting him and getting to know him a bit. We loved his stories of Panama and really added a personal touch. On the hike in El Valle there is a particular “scramble” that to our naked eyes looked very vertical. However, Kevin helped alleviate our fears and even helped each of us to climb up. We felt really accomplished! 😀

We plan to go back to Panama again soon and will definitely reach out to Kevin and Barefoot Panama for some additional tours. It was a blast and pleasure to work with them.

Until next time!

I will echo all the negative reviews on this platform about Barefoot Panama Tours/Kevin especially my fellow traveler Mandi @Explore163408 who was disrespected in exactly the same. Please do your research with this company by reading ALL reviews and be skeptical as the owner is flagging and removing truths he might be a little sensitive to. Facts: I had a ticket with a designated time and was there on time at the designated location and the company didn’t fulfill its side of the contact by picking us up. The owner Kevin then put the blame on my family and has taken zero accountability to anything he might have done wrong or could have done better.
