You should take this tour ! This was the truly a great tour. Clemente is an excellent tour guide. We were very interested in learning about Panama . Clemente is an amazing historian; he took us through the history of the country from the ruins of the beginnings settlements from the 1500s through Casa Viejo ( old town ) and the modern Panama City . We learned about all of the major historical events. I loved the day ; it was so much fun and we learned so much. Thank you Clemente!

Clemente provided all that he said he would and more... We had ample pre- tour email and telephone contact to arrange pick-up and personalize the day. He was prompt and immediately friendly and re-assuring. The day unfolded as planned and provided hassle-free access to the best Canal sites and observation platforms. Clemente was knowledgeable and educative and in no rush to move us along when we were obviously enthralled. The city tour was interesting and spiced by anecdote and innuendo and a locals lunch

If you are interested in Panama Canal Zone history, Clemente A is your guide! We had a fabulous tour, full of information about the construction and operation of the canal, but also the challenges facing Panama since the full transition in 1999 as well as the brand new 2016 expansion. Clements is filled with both love of and pride in his country, and it clearly shows, as he went out of his way to squeeze in an extra sight or two as time and traffic conditions allowed!! We highly recommend Clemente A.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many, many, thanks, it was a honor and a pleasure. I deeply appreciate nowing you enjoy the tour, for me, that is the best reward. You really Just made my day, GRACIAS. I am at your orders any other day you are around this part of the World.

Wow, what a great day. Clemente was an excellent guide, not only showing us things off the beaten path but giving extremely balanced insight into the history of the area. Panama is a complex country - especially in the Canal area. Clemente is knowledgeable historian giving all sides of the story. We were a group of 4 and the van was very roomy and comfortable. Grab this guy if you get the opportunity!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoy every moment, but this is really the best, knowing that the time of my life I spent with you was really APPRECIATED (It is not all abouth money, it is love in what you do, I love to be a tour guide and I love more nowing people enjoy and appreciate me delivering my best, Just to see everyone happy) . I hope to have the oportunity a other time to be your Private Guide while you are in Panama, it was a honor and a pleasure to be at your service... GRACIAS...

We enjoyed meeting Clemente and having him show us around Panama City -- it was the perfect solution for a long layover as he was able to meet us and drop us off at the airport, with a nice, comfortable van and good driver. He is very knowledgeable and we saw all the highlights, ate good ice cream and Panamanian food, and got a good sense of the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks. It was a honor and a pleasure to be your family Private guide.

We had very good tour with Clemente. His knowledge of Panama is very impressive. We learnt a lot about the country, people, history. The highlight of the tour was the Canal. Clement is working for the Panama Canal Authority; he knows everything about the history and the complex operation of the canal; moreover he loves it. We had a great day, enjoyed every minutes. We are happy to recommend Clement as guide in Panama.

We had a wonderful and interesting day with Clemente. It was so much more than the packaged tours offered by our cruise line. We saw the tourist spots and the non-tourist spots. We learned so much about the history of Panama on top of the Canal. I would suggest his tour to everyone! We were able to minimize walking and enjoy AC.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure, I am at your orders, a y time.

We had a wonderful day with Clemente touring all around Panama City. We learned so much from him about the canal, the people of Panama, the history, the role of the French and Americans. Clemente is very knowledgeable and thoroughly enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion. He speaks English fluently and is easy to understand. He wanted to know about what interested us and tailored our time with him. I would recommend Clemente for a wonderful informative visit to Panama City.

Clemente was informative but somewhat distracted and seemed bored with his job. Took us to crowded venues we wished to avoid. Walked us through Panama City for hours. Suggested a cafeteria restaurant for food that was very low end. We bought him and his driver lunch without so much as a thank you. His driver appeared put out with his job and was distracted while driving us, resulting in two instances of slamming on his brakes and narrowly avoiding us crashing into cars ahead of us and behind us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: January 26 Pope Francisco and more than 750.000.00 pilgrims was visiting Panama city, the Panama Canal Visitors Center at Miraflores Locks was crowded, we whent away and return, it was the same. To get in and out of Old Town whe had to walk. Many roads where closed, traffic was more bad than usual. But we visit all the places on the tour description. Before coming to Panama you knew this. No way I could avoid the crowds and walking you mention, and visit all the places you wanted, I deeply apologice.

Clemente is a wonderfully funny, knowledgeable, and accommodating tour guide. He was able to address all my questions and ensured that the private tour I had requested would be possible. He was also very adept at modifying our itinerary as my plans changed in the moment. Clemente was very warm, welcoming, and kind. He showed great knowledge of Panamanian culture, history, and economics. I look forward to another tour with Clemente next time I visit Panama.

Our guide, Clemente, was great. He has over twenty years experience and is very knowledgeable about the history of Panama. We were provided an excellent overview of the city and surrounding area. Clemente provided us the opportunity to visit the nearby forest and see the trail where Captain Morgan traveled through the forest to sack Panama City. He was able to answer all of our questions. This excursion was most definitely better than the usual cruise boat tour and we would highly recommend it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoy a lot been in your company and Sue, It was a pleasure.

Easy Meet n' Greet at spot where ship's tenders dock. Clemente's command of English was excellent and he provided us with everything as described. Even when there was a big traffic jam, he directed the driver to go a different route thereby saving us at least a half hour. Clemente even offered us the option of getting lunch on the way back to the port, but we declined as we were afraid traffic might prevent our timely return. All in all, a very nice tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks.

Clemente did a good job of showing us the highlights of Panama City. I especially liked the ruins of the old city and its history. Our ship is docked at Colon so it was a good hour or so drive. Still a very worthwhile day. Clemente was not rushed and did a good job of showing all sides of the city even the local side. I would highly recommend him.

This was a very educational tour. You can tell Clemente takes great pride in his job. He is very knowledgeable about Panamanian history. He shared with us many places that no tour bus goes. We got out of the vehicle several times to see, hear and most importantly feel the history. Standing on the very ground and pathways where important historic events took place. I would recommend Clemente over and over again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks, my reward is knowing that you enjoy and value my effort to make sure you got the best, I had a excellent day in your company, it was a pleasure and a honor. Hope to see you again.
