I felt completely at ease and safe! Chris was VERY knowledgeable about Panama History, facts and resources. He was accommodating for our mother who needed a wheelchair. He went out of his way to share Panama with us! His English was superb, although we tried using our Spanish! This Tour is Excellent! I would highly recommend this tour, especially ask for Chris!

Antonio is a great bilingual English/Spanish guide. I was on a quick layover in Panama for 20 hours and his tour worked perfect for me and he was even able to drop me off at the airport for an additional fee after the tour so I could catch my flight. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and you can tell he likes what he does. I would highly recommend him and this tour of the locks/old town.

Tony is a super friendly and outgoing guide who gave us a very enjoyable and interesting tour of Panama City, especially the Panama Canal and the Casco Viejo. I can only recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see and learn a lot in a short time! No mass processing.
