Miguel was superb! From punctual pickup & excellent english to amazingly comprehensive discussions of the old & new Panama & Panama City. He prepared a tour exactly choreographed to our interests & needs. Being a very warm & personable gentlemen was just a bonus to our great tour. Miguel is highly recommended...especially if you have limited time and want the full picture of Panama City and its diverse population.

Larry HelferUnited States
Miguel is an excellent guide. He knows a tremendous amount about the technology and history of the Panama Canal and about Panama City. He was happy to answer all of our questions. He took us to an excellent seafood restaurant for lunch on the water and spent more time with us than the 1/2 day tour required.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments and for using my services, I'm glad to know you and your friends enjoyed the tour.

It's obvious that Miguel loves Panama and Panama City and also obvious that he is incredibly knowledgeable of its history and everyday lifestyle. On top of that he is a complete gentleman and a good driver! What else could we want?
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much for your words Miss. Ann, all of you are very kind people, you made me enjoy my work, I hope you keep enjoying your cruise, thanks and greetings

My wife and I enjoyed the tour very much. Miguel was very knowledgeable and personable. Miguel was very knowledgeable of the history of Panama and Central America. He is well versed in the flora, fauna and wildlife of the area. He tailored the tour to meet our specific needs and requirements. We would highly recommend him. When we return we will seek his services for future explorations.

It was a pleasure to spend the day with Miguel. He is highly knowledgeable, interesting, courteous, helpful and flexible. For example, when one restaurant we stopped at for lunch was full with a busload of tourists, he quickly found another, more suitable restaurant nearby. Also, his English is perfect. The tour itself was excellent, with the visit to the canal and Gatun Lake complementing each other and both were within an easy drive. I was more than satisfied and highly recommend Miguel.
Lee BrunoUnited States
Miguel was one of the best informed, pleasant and all-around great guide that I have ever used. I had made the appointment months before for Miguel to meet my wife and I at 7:am at arrivals, as promised Miguel was waiting and from there we enjoyed a layover tour of the city, breakfast and shopping for local indian crafts. Miguel thank you again for showing us a wonderful time and I hope to come back to Panama and use your services again.

I did a very short layover in Panama and booked a private tour to literally see all of Panama City with Miguel. He was amazing. He communicated always with me, showed me what I wanted to see but most of told me so much of the history, the canal, the city, people etc. and so much more. I highly recommend you boon with him. I loved it & so grateful he helped me in that short time too!

Paul McKernanUnited States
Miguel was a superb tour guide. He was right on time in an immaculate car with an itinerary that, in 5 hours, gave us an amazing feel for Panama City and the country in general. His interactions with the local populace were Incredibly helpful as we discovered the subtleties of Panamanian vendors. We were grateful to have him as our guide and would highly recommend him to fellow travelers.
Miguel was very friendly and show us the Town and the Chanel and everything was perfect and very good. Thanks Miguel for the nice Day

This is the second time we have been with MIguel. Obviously, we would not have repeated if we had not been pleased the first time! Miguel is excellent, as all of our Tours by Locals guides have been. We recommend him without hesitation to any one who wants a tour guide who meets all the requirements of "5- Star!"
Miguel is a very pleasant man and is knowledgeable about Panama and its surroundings. We would request him again for future tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for using my services, I am pleased to know that you liked the tour, regards.
Miguel is the ideal guide. Excellent communication around pick up. Miguel knows the history of Panama to a great level of detail and we learned so much from him, it really enriched our tour. We spent the day with Miguel and saw a great deal of the city with him, we felt we made the absolute most of our day long layover with his choices. Miguel was very pleasant, easy company and we all loved the day. Would highly recommend Miguel.
Miguel was there on time waiting for us. Excellent English gave us a history of Panama and places Visited. Great host and fun to speak to.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm really glad, knowing you enjoyed the tour Mr. Ali, I appreciate you used my services as your tour guide while your visiting Panama. Regards

We had a wonderful day in Panama City with Miguel. My wife and I had a 12-hour airport layover, so Miguel picked us up at the airport at about 7:15am and dropped us back at 3:15pm. His knowledge and personal stories of the area were remarkable. We toured the Panama Canal and Museum; Old Town; the Islands and more. Miguel even took us to an authentic Panamanian restaurant for lunch! All in all a wonderful day and I would highly recommend Miguel anytime you are in Panama City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your words, I'm glad to know you enjoyed your layover here in Panama. Regards to Miss Marilyn

Excellent guide, knowledgeable, very good English, good driver and well met.
Miguel was a mine of information on Panama history and drove us around safely to the land marks and dropped off at airport. Enjoyed our tour, thanks Miguel
Our tour of Panama City and canal with Miguel was by far the best and most informed tour that we have ever taken. He was prompt, friendly,and extremely knowledgeable. At no time did we feel rushed and his ability to negotiate crowds and traffic is unsurpassed especially with the impending papal visit. His command of English is excellent. We will be leaving Panama with many memories and a good understanding of Panama's history and present day conditions. I would strongly recommend Miguel's services

Kay McCurdyUnited States
Miguel did an outstanding day tour of Panama City for us. He took is to Panama Viejo, 2 artisan markets with very good prices, Casco Viejo and the Causeway to several beautiful islands. He answered all our many questions about tourism, politics, history and pointed out numerous special trees etc. We couldn't have been happier.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mrs. Kay, my satisfaction is to know you both had a good time. Kind regards
Tina H.United States
Miguel picked us up from the port with no problems. He is a great driver and guide and spoke English very well. The trip was fantastic with a pretty dugout canoe ride to the Indian village, another canoe ride then a hike to a beautiful waterfall. Back to the village where the Indians talked about their life then we ate delicious fish and plantains. After eating we had a dancing demonstration then we were invited to dance. Wonderful day that I would repeat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mrs. Tina, I feel good when my guests have enjoyed their tour as I did, thank you for your comments. Kind regards
Chris ArchuletaUnited States
We only had one full day in Panama and Miguel's city tour was perfect. What a fabulous skyline of Panama City. He went over the history of the city as well as the Country of Panama. Did a little shopping in a local market and had a terrific lunch at a local restaurant. Now that I look back, I wished we went to Monkey Island instead of going to the canal and the museum, which can easily be done on your own. FYI - skip the movie on the canal, it's full of propaganda. The museum "walk through" is good.
Gary ColeUnited States
Miguel was great. We had hotel pickup and everything went very smooth. With the van we were able to visit and see a wide variety of different places within Panama. My only recommendation is to visit the Canal either early in AM or later in PM. Miguel requested we start earlier. We flew in the night before and were unable to get the group up early. We got to Canal a little after 10 am and a lot of the vessel action was already done. The remainder of the day was great. Miguel is 5 star
We had an amazing day with Miguel. We have traveled extensively and he was one of the best guides we ever had. Super knowledgable on everything we wanted to know. I would highly recommend him!! He did the city tour and monkey island tour in one day which is a great combo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your words Mrs. Tara, it makes me feel satisfied for my labor knowing all of you enjoyed the tour. Kind regards
Kenneth DanhofUnited States
Miguel was great. He is very well informed about many topics not just the canal ( and he really knows the canal well). He was flexible with the schedule which allowed us to see the wildlife in the morning before rains came. He was attentive to our preferences and made the tour feel very personal to us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour here in Panama, I enjoyed it too. regards
