Teofilo J.

Panamá, panamá, Panama

Hi, you can call me Teo! I am originally from a very small and beautiful place name Bocas Del Toro.

I am the third generation born in Panamá of workers that came from Martinique and Jamaica for the Panamá Canal construction a hundred years ago.

I have 14 years of experience working has a tour guide in Panamá. I have a Master Degree as Promoter of Historic Sites and Culture and a Technical degree as Tour Guide of Panama History and Culture. At the beginning of my career I worked as an independent tour guide, basically guiding visitors that came to Panamá by cruise ships and airport and also providing tours for many other companies as a freelance guide.

At the current time I provide my services for local tour operators doing everything from small private tours to large groups around the country showing, and transmitting the feelings of the Panamanian culture. I am married, with three kids (all boys).

A Recent Review of this guide

Teo was fantastic. We had a long layover in Panama City, and he created a custom tour to accommodate our hectic schedule. Teo is a true professional: very knowledgeable, very pleasant, very efficient. We absolutely enjoyed every moment of his tour. He has our highest recommendation!
