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!

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

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.

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.

Aylin ThomasUnited 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

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
Rick WilliamsUnited States
He is very knowledgeable about many things, broad range of information concerning Panama history and current state. He is very pleasant and fun, he drives very safely, and can speak well on most any topic you are interested. I highly recommend him to anyone. Great guy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Rick and may you continue having a wonderful time in Panama.
Tammy HarneyUnited States
Our group had a wonderful time with Vincent as he toured us around Panama City in an air conditioned van. He was a wealth of knowledge about the history of the canal, culture and history of Panama. Thanks Vincent for the great day. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide. Tammy Thanks for posting this for me since I was not able to locate where to post.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tammy and Kia... Thank you. I really enjoyed a great time with you people. Please send my greetings to the rest of the A Team. See you next time Vincent
Paul PrebilUnited States
Vincent is the consummate professional. He is enthusiastic, friendly and supremely knowledgeable. What we may have enjoyed most about Vincent is his Panamanian Pride. He has a joyful soul and loves to show tourists his homeland. We were fortunate to book Vincent for a day in early February. It was truly a remarkable life experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paul. Your words truly reached to my heart. I'm very happy you had a wonderful time. I also had it with your beloved ones. I wish you the best and see next time. Vincent
There is nothing we can complain about. Vincente took over from a colleague at very short notice. He was punctual, very well organised and friendly. He tried his best to show us all the places in and around Panama City we wanted to visit. Due to the traffic we were not able to see all, but this was definitely not his fault! He is knowledgeable about the history of Panama (Panama City/ Panama Canal/ etc.) and is able to make this clear in easy words. He also is flexible. Thank you for the great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Volker for such nice comments of our experience in Panama. I appreciate it a lot..see you next time.
Walt GambleUnited States
Vincent exceeded every expectation we had for this tour. We so appreciated his down to earth commentary and knowledgeable information. Every detail we requested was delivered many times over. Vincent planned this per my specific request and covered every thing, plus added his own side trip across the ferry to the Gatun Dam which really completed our (2 civil engineers) study of the entire canal works. We will use toursbylocals every chance we get. Walt in Oregon
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Walt, I have no words for such deep comments. I truly appreciate your sincere expressions about our unforgettable experience we had. See you next time Send greeting to the rest of the group. Vincent
Steven GeringerUnited States
Vincent will exceed your expectations from the moment you meet face to face. We had 4 adults and 2 kids, ages 5 & 7. Vincent knew exactly how to balance everyone's needs while ensuring we all learned a lot given his great sense of history and being very articulate. He made history fun & relevant. We have had guides throughout the world and can't remember any being any better. It could not have been a better day! Simply put...he's the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steve, Linda, Cole, Miranda.....thanks a lot for your sincere comments...I really carry it to my heart and I'm soo happy to know that you had a wonderful time undoubtedly. Tell Cole that I received the video clip of the crazy monkey....LoL....my kids laughed at it. All the best for you and your family Vincent
Inga RazUnited States
This is by far the best tour guide you can get in Panama! we (2 adults and 4 kids (15,13,10,2)) only had 1 day in Panama city and we wanted to see the Tribe, Gamboa and the Canal. since it was busy day we started early and Vincent came to get us from the Hotel. His van is AMAZING and include WIFI which made it easy for the trip to the Tribe. Vincent has many connections and this help us to see unique things and get better prices for each attraction. Vincent is the BEST guide you will get in Panama!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Inga Woao!!!! I'm truly happy that you all had an unforgettable experience in my country. You have a lovely famliy and you all are welcome any time you wish. Thanks for your sincere comments Vincent

Linda ZinkUnited States
Vincent is the BEST! He created a custom tour for myself and my two teenage children and we loved every minute. Spent the first day hiking in Anton Valley - he had a plan, but was flexible and graciously accommodated my kids requests. He wanted to make sure we had a great experience. Second day in Panama City at the canal - amazing! Fluent in English, extremely knowledgeable, and very insightful - made sightseeing tours more of a cultural event. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Linda, I'm soo happy to hear some news from you!!. Thank you for such sincere comments. Give greetings to your children. If they need to practice Español have my Skype account vscott03 I wish the best to all of you. Hasta pronto. Vincent
Sharon LeonardUnited States
EXCELLENT! The only way to really experience Panama City is with Vincent's tour. His knowledge of the history of his city combined with his expertise about the building of the Panama Canal greatly was exceptional and greatly enhanced our visiit. He arranged our tour so that we were able to view a large number of ships entering many stages of the canal. Truly amazing! At our request, we ate lunch at a very authentic Panamanian restaurant. His van was comfortable with air conditioning and Internet.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soo much Sharon. I also enjoyed a lot with your group. Im happy that we had an unforgettable experience and I look forward to hear from you as you arrive back to USA. Send my deep greetings to the group. Vincent
Karen McCombUnited States
Our guide Vincent was incredible!! We learned so much, saw so much and enjoyed every minute of our 7 hours with him. Traveling in a van, and not a large cruise ship bus, we were able to do and see parts of Panama the ship tours couldn't see. All nine of us felt that because of Vincent, we were able to appreciate the canal and its workings so that when we actually went through the canal the next day, we knew what to look for and we understood so much. Highlight of our 15 day trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soo much Karen for such sincere words. I also enjoyed your group and had a wonderful time along our tour experience. I look forward to hear from you. Vincent
Louis CapriottiUnited States

Cheryl SamplesUnited States
This tour was so terrific. You get to experience so much in your day. Portobello is a fabulous place with an extensive history. Vincent makes the tour so very interesting with his knowledge and stories. You get to see the ruins, bays, a fabulous lunch and top that off with a spectacular beach visit. Vincent caters to your every want and need. Thank you Vincent for a wonder day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soo much Cheryl. I'm really happy receiving your heartfelt comments. We did enjoy a wonderful time and I look forward to see you soon with new scenic spots of Panama. Send shouts to my buddy also Cheers Vince
Cheryl SamplesUnited States
Where did I start but with Vincent is just fabulous. If you are looking for a great and attentive tour guide then Vincent is definitely your man. Vincent created this spec tour for us taking us to visit spots we had seen 20 years ago and some new spots. It was a terrific day spent seeing the Panama Canal, all the old military installations and old town. Lunch was great at the Mirafloes locks - get a table on the balcony for the best views. We will be going back and doing more tours with Vincent ��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you soo much for your sincere comments. Just filled my passion with such nice comments.My deepest greetings and looking forward to see you again. Cheers Vincent

Ed FothUnited States
Great guide-- very conversant-- great explanations. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ed. I'm very happy that you had a great time knowing my country. I wish you the best as well to your beloved ones. Vincent
Scott DavisUnited States
Vincent was amazing! He is VERY knowledgeable about each and every part of the tour/city. He quickly and completely answered any question that we had. Due to Vincent's great planning and knowledge, we arrived at each stop on the tour at the best possible time (for example being able to see 3 ships going through Canal at the same time). Most importantly, we never felt as if we were tourists with a guide but rather that we were visiting an old friend who was proudly showing us around his home town.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Scott for your kindly and sincere comments. It was a great pleasure to be more than your guide; your friend. Saludos amigo Vincent
Translated from Spanish: Glad we spent the day with Vincent ! This will be an unforgettable trip! We went with my family a few days to Panama and I wanted you to know we take advantage of the maximum lugarers emblematic and so it was ! Besides we know much happy! We laughed all day, Vincent is a person who knows everything and as enjoyable and fun! Thank you for all Vincent ! We now have a super experience and a great friend !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elizabeth. For me it was a pleasure to have met with your family . Definitely I carry in my heart forever since you are my family and I appreciate much they loved this unforgettable experience. Vincent**Spanish: Mil gracias Isabel. Para mí fue un placer haberte conocido junto con tu familia. Definitivamente los llevo en mi corazón por siempre ya que ustedes son mi familia y agradezco mucho que les encantó esta inolvidable experiencia. Vincent
Vincent is just superb! He arrived on time and even had to wait for me for a while (there was a long line at the border control in the airport), presented the very clear and consistent plan on where we will go and proved himself as an excellent story teller and listener. We parted eight hours later as the best friends. He is very knowledgeable, accurate, inventive, knows his job and simply a very good man. I recommend him to anybody who would like to have a good time in Panama-city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola Andrei, Thank you soo much for your sincere comments. All the Best for you and your Family Vincent
