This was the perfect introduction to Panama City, especially the Casco Veijo area. Nicole, our guide, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and shared with us her passion for the food and culture of the area. We enjoyed Panamanian coffee, chocolates (yum!), local beers, a variety of ceviche from the local fish markets, and topped off the evening in a rooftop bar at sunset enjoying the local rum. I’d highly recommend this experience.

Loved the tour including the walk in Casco Antiguo with the churches and the architecture. The Guide was awesome and knew how to make us enjoy the day.

Amazing guide and tour was definitely worth it. 100% reliable and genuine. Trip around Gatun Lake was gratifying and the Indian village was charming! Absolute fun.

We did the full day San Blas Islands tour from Panama City. Not worth it. Yes, the islands are beautiful, but you only really get to enjoy two of them for an hour each (out of a total of 13 hours the trip lasts). Most of the time you’re stuck on a car or boat for very long rides. In addition, this trip felt disorganized. When we got to the “boat terminal,” our driver went around to a bunch of different boat operators trying to figure out which group we were in, which was different from the rest of the people in our car. Speaking of the driver, he drove unsafely and unprofessionally (too fast, loud music, talking on the phone). He did not give us any information about the journey time nor where we were. The car was also extremely uncomfortable and too small, especially given we were in a group with two extremely obese people which meant there wasn’t really space for 6 passengers yet the driver squeezed us all in. Another example of disorganization is when we arrived at the second island (where we were supposed to have TWO hours), we waited an hour seated at picnic tables for our lunch order that had apparently not been correctly communicated by our guide, which was a HUGE waste of time. Last, but not least, at no point on this tour do you get any info about the local indigenous community nor the islands… nothing! So you’re basically paying $340 (for two people) for two hours of beach time. Totally not worth it!

We took the half day Panama City Tour and it was very good indeed. Our tour guide was Gonzo who spoke English perfectly, and was full of really interesting anecdotes. He was happy to alter the itinerary to fit in special requests. If you need an introduction to Panama City this tour is ideal.

I was part of the wonderful (small group) Panama City & Canal tour with Gonzo. He's a native Panamanian, speaks perfect English, and is a self-proclaimed history geek - a virtual fountain of information about Panama. We saw so much yet the day went by so fast! I look forward to taking more Barefoot Panama tours when I return. Thank you Gonzo!

Our guide, Johnny was so welcoming and enthusiastic! He is very passionate and knowledgeable about the wildlife on the lake as well as the indigenous people who live on the island. He loves his country and wants to share all the wonderful things about the area. He even had a nice surprise to share with us at the end of the tour and it was absolutely wonderful. I would definitely go on another Barefoot Panama tour!
