The tour was excellent! The guide Caesar was wonderful. Very kind, polite and considerate. He explained all the details about the places we passed and answered many questions we had, and even stopped at special places to take pictures. The car was super clean. Anyway, we recommend the tour with César!!

We enjoyed our visit to the Panama Canal and all the way to Casco Viejo. Our guide, Caesar, was very important to the success of our tour: very attentive, very competent, very knowledgeable about the history of Panama. We feel very welcomed by him !!! Congratulations to the company for having this excellent professional.

We did the tour with Caesar (in Portuguese) and it was very cool. In a short time we know the most known points of the Capital. It is a place we will certainly be returning to and the tour with Caesar's help was very cool because he knows so much about the place and was always willing to talk about the place. I recommend!
