A Recent Review of this tour

Miguel is an excellent and professional guide who makes the history, culture, and particularities of Panamanian culture come alive. He's very attentive to detail and passionate in his delivery. I was extremely grateful for all the context he was able to provide along each step of our tour and felt my experience was greatly enriched - uniquely so - by having had him as my guide. I plan to return to Panama in the near future and have no doubts about who I'll be calling for additional tours!
