The guide during the tour is a local person, but not professional guide, so don’t expect typical factual detail insights. The tour is great to look at Panama through the eyes of the locals. We were assisted by Santiago, who is a class act guy. He gave us interesting insights into the history and the current developments of Panama. We were moving from place to place by Uber what was effective, fast and cheap mean of communication across the city. We would like to thank Santiago for taking care about us. His English was great. It was a pleasure to spend time with this young gentleman.
We enjoyed this tour, however there was not much food involved. The ceviche at the Fish Market was outstanding. The other stops had a small taste of local chocolate and coffee, a craft brewery for beer, and a rooftop bar for rum. Jorge, the guide, was okay. He was engaging but spoke too softly in the noisy locations to be heard. He also spent way too much time raving and explaining about the coffee at the first stop. I knew we had these stops, but on other food tours we have taken in different cities more local food was part of the tour even at the alcohol based stops.
My guide was so nice and I got to learn so much about Panama. Edwado (May be spelled wrong) went above and beyond his job to make the tour very enjoyable. I was going to buy water at museum but he said it was expensive and he would take me to a store. Got my water for 80 cents This was just one of the extras he did. I would recommend this tour
