Briant has been my guide on several trips to Panama, and each time I am able to explore off the beaten path with him -- these trips are some of the best experiences of my life. I started with the waterfalls tour in Santa Fe, and from there have planned custom itineraries. I have traveled Panama extensively, and have worked... More

I booked the cave tour with Xplorer Panama from New York based on T/A reviews and it just sounded cool. Like most things in life, it's all about the people. I went with a couple from Chicago and our guide Alex Guavara. The cave is amazing and gorgeous,but Alex is what made the trip. His knowledge is amazing, but his... More

We were fortunate to have Alex as our guide for all four tours. He picked us up promptly each day. The travel time to and from our destinations was usually at least... More

Highly recommend taking this tour if you are in Panama - such a great experience. The company was very easy to communicate with via email during the booking process. Our tour guide, Alex, was on-time, very knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to spend the day with. The water level was high when we visited so there were a few parts... More

we took a 1/2 day tour with Alex on November 23. It was fantastic! Alex was knowledgeable and personable. The walk through the forest was interesting. We saw more than we anticipated. The boat ride provided more wildlife sightings from crocodiles to different kinds of monkeys, as well as a sloth and lots of different kinds of birds . Highly... More
