A Recent Review of this tour

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.
