First I cannot say enough great things about our guide Vincent. He was our guide for four days and every day was outstanding. My wife and I have used guides in our travels throughout the world and none have been better than Vincent. Second, the tour this day was great. We saw a great number of animals both on Monkey Island (especially numerous monkeys) and on our jungle hike. Vincent is extremely knowledgeable and has a great way of integrating and imparting his knowledge through out the tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mi Amigo Brian, Muchas Gracias amigo. Los quiero mucho... It was truly an awesome experience being with your family including Mandi. I wish you and your ones the best and we keep in touch for any future experience of my country. Next time we need to visit the country side (Azuero region and Chiriquí High Lands). Warmest regards,
Mandi SolomonUnited States
Vincent is a really amazing guide. Not only does he help to make the experience what you are looking for, but his knowledge of each place he takes you to is amazing. I highly recommend Vincent if you want to get to know Panama's culture and natural beauty.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Mandi, Muchas gracias.... I'm very happy that you all had a fantastic time getting the best of my country. See you in the near future. Vincent
Mandi SolomonUnited States
Vincent is wonderful! He really tailors the experience to what you want to see and his knowledge of the Panama is really impressive. If you are looking for an amazing experience pick Vincent!

Kathleen MoonUnited States
Vincent was fantastic. We saw and learned a lot but the best part was how he customized the tour for our group in needs and wants. I'd recommend him to any group
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Kathleen, I'm very happy you all had a wonderful time as well a great experience of Panama. Wish you all the best
Lee CarterUnited States
Actually, on a five star rating list Vincent is a TEN. Professional, energetic, accommodating, patient, spontaneous, entertaining, Vincent is hands down the best guide we have ever had. He orchestrated a very personalized trip for us with sufficient down time to recover, never left our side (which we had not expected) and really introduced us to the beauty and complexities of his country. All this at a very reasonable price, I might add. We arrived in Panama strangers and left as amigos!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Lee Mi Amigo Thanks a lot for such deep and sincere comments. Our 9 days excursion was extraordinary along with Sandy. I'm deeply happy that we were able to achieve Sandy's request by visiting her place of birth Colon City Coco Solo. My wife and kids will always remember you. We keep in contact, and wish you and Sandy all the best. Hasta pronto amigo,. Vincent
Christian EsserBritish Virgin Islands

Lynn MillsSioux City, IOWA, United States
Vincent was awesome. He was patient with our group of 4, knowledgeable about Panama's history, vibrant, and most of all he was fun. he joined us for lunch at an Old Town restaurant where he knew the owners and we were treated like family. For our tour he deserved a higher rating than 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soo much and I'm truly happy that you had enjoyed my country and my family. See you in the near future and continue having fun.
Cynthia MillerUnited States
Vincent is an absolutely fantastic guide - my tour with him was the highlight of my week in Panama!! I can't recommend him highly enough! He's very knowledgeable, and paid close attention to my interests, so the tour felt "personalized." I found that he had just the right energy level for everything I wanted to do. Even better, he's got a wonderful, easy-going personality, and is so easy to spend several hours with! So glad I booked this tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cynthia. It was an unique experience and I'm very happy that my country suited you nicely. Saludos, Vincent

Vicente was knowledgeable, energetic, good humored and speaks near-perfect English. He was patient when we were slow, flexible when we asked about changing our itinerary en route, and ended up adding an extra hour to accommodate us. I'd highly recommend him!

Diane B.United States
Informative, personable, and knowledgeable, Vincent provided an excellent tour. He not only took us to the main sights of the Canal and Panama City but customized the tour to fit our needs. He also went out of his way for us, so we could go to a local supermarket, attend church, and visit places off the tourist path. We recommend Vincent highly and would certainly take another tour with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Diane, Thanks a lot for your sincere comments, but overall for been receptive and willing in learning and discovering my country culture.
Frank SpampinatoUnited States
Vincent is an excellent guide. He knows the area and his English is excellent. Also very personable. I highly recommend him.

Sharon A Y.United States
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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sharon, Thank you soo much for your sincere words. I truly had an extraordinary time with you and very happy that my country met your expectation as a great destiny. May you continue enjoying the best on your cruise expedition. Kind regards, Vincent

Mary Cabell ClayUnited States
Vincent was a great tour guide! Highly recommend. We did a half day tour of Panama City (driving for highlights of modern city and Amador Causeway and then walking in Old City) with my family (four adults) on Christmas Eve. Very informative but also read the group well and directed information and tour as it interested the group. Wonderful english and very knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your sincere comments Mary. I truly enjoyed the day along with your beloved family. I wish you all a marvelous Merry Christmas. Vincent

Vincent was so knowledgeable. His command of English was flawless - we learned about the Panama Canal and the historic old town of Panama City. He really made our 8 hour layover wonderful. I would take another tour by Vincent. we will also book other tours with Tours by locals and recommend them to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kate, I'm very happy of your comments and feedbacks. I really carry it to my heart and remember that in Panamá you have a wonderful friend willing to suite your experience in my country. Wish you and your husband all the best.
Aylin T.United States
Our tour with Vincent was great. He picked us up at the airport and took us around Panama for a day trip. We wanted to see and hear about the sites and cultural knowledge and get a delicious Panamanian dinner and buy some coffee to take home. Vincent took us to the best spots and gave great recommendations for dinner for us later in the evening. He's very knowledgable and fun - we learned and laughed a lot. His van was very comfortable with plenty of space and air conditioning for the 4 of us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Aylin, I'm very happy that we had a great time. See you next time Send greetings to your friends. All the best Vincent

Susan BrownClearwater, FL, United States
Vincent is a super nice and very accommodating guide. His van was comfortable and he allowed us some changes to our itinerary at the last minute. We saw all of the places we wanted to see with a great narrative along the way. It was hot the day we were in Panama and Vincent made sure that we were comfortable, stayed hydrated, and took us to have lunch in a lovely local restaurant. Great day and we highly recommend this guide.

Jeffrey BaerUnited States
Vincent was a great guide. He was on time, had a comfortable van and did a great job navigating us around Panama City's traffic. He was very knowledgeable and we felt like we got to see all the highlights of the city. My son left his hat in the van and Vincent kindly drove back to our hotel to return it. I would definitely recommend using him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Denise. I'm deeply happy reading your sincere comments. See you next time. Vincent
Rhonda K.United States
Vincent is a fabulous guide, flexible and caring. When the roads to Gamboa were blocked by an unannounced bike race, he went out his way to make sure we went to another national park to see the birds, wildlife and flora we had been hoping to see. He then gave us a tour of the city and showed us how it has developed over time. We cannot recommend Vincent enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rhonda, Thanks a lot for such warmful comments. I take it to my heart and I'm entirely happy to hear from you. Hasta pronto!!! Vincent
