A Recent Review of this guide
Michelle picked us up in Colon, right at the exit from our ship. We proceeded to travel to Panama City so my husband could get his Hard Rock t-shirt that he collects on our travels. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything Panama related and kept us amused, despite the awful traffic, for 5 hours. I highly recommend Michelle for your next tour in Panama.
