A Recent Review of this tour

Vincent customized a tour due to a minor mobility issue. I can only say he did a fantastic job! I felt like I was meeting a friend, not someone I did not know. He is very well versed in Panamanian history and culture and one can tell he loves his work. I was off a cruise ship and Vincent made sure I saw everything I wanted to see. When in Panama put yourself in Vincent's capable hands and you will be glad you did. Vincent, thanks for the monkeys-loved it. Sharon
