Tour: #256424, Casco viejo walking tour - Panama City, Panamá City, Panama    view tour
Date: Feb 16/18

A wonderful introductory tour to the colonial section of Panama City. Juan Jose is a very knowledgeable guide, and his English is impeccable. He walked us all around the old city, and told us the history of the area, the canal. We had time to browse local merchants while strolling along the city wall. We visited churches, public squares, and learned about the architecture of the old buildings. I would highly recommend this tour!

Juan brought so much information to the walk around the old city. It made the trip much more interesting. Don't just walk around - learn about the history too!

Very interesting tour especially if you like history. The ride was also interesting and Juan explains all the buildings and their history that you see along the way. Lunch at the Marina was also delicious.

We not only got to fish (and catch) on the lake, but he took us to feed the monkeys with peanuts from our hands, and pointed out other wild life on the lake - so was also a nature tour in addition to the fishing trip. We got to eat the fish we caught for lunch - great day! Thanks Juan!

One of my favorite tours on the week. The boat ride on the river was fun - listened to the howler monkeys overhead, the waterfall is beautiful, and the tribe was interesting and so much fun. Lunch was delicious too!

Date: Jan 9/18

We had a fabulous time fishing with Juan Jose today. Not only did we catch more peacock bass than I could keep track of, but Juan helped us see 2 kinds of monkeys, a toucan, parrots, an iguana, and lots of special birds. His commentary while on the drive to the boat was comprehensive and interesting. The covered boat is larger then expected. We are on a 3 week cruise and have had many shore excursions. But hands down, today's time with Juan Jose beats them all.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than you so much for you comments, we had a wondeful day, hoping to see yoy againg in Panama. Juan

Tour: #255357, Snorkeling on the Caribbean side of Panama - Portobelo, Panamá City, Panama    view tour
Date: Dec 23/17

Very nice day. Juan drove us to the Caribbean side of Panama to a dive shop. Everything was ready for us and we were taken to a secluded beach where we snorkeled. Juan, an experienced diver, was attentive to all our needs. In addition he took us to Portabello to view an early Spanish fort. His knowledge of the area and history was great. Highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Panama.

If you have to choose only one tour and have limited time in Panama this is the tour. It is an all day tour and Juan is well acquainted with the Kuna Indians. The water is crystal clear and good for both the swimmming and boating. The lobster lunch was delicious!!!

Juan Jose is a great tour guide providing the background, history, and culture of what we're seeing, making it interesting and not overwhelming. We really enjoyed our day trip to San Blas. A highlight is driving on the only road through the Rainforest. There's beautiful views of untouched forest and the sounds of toucans. Bring beach towels, books, playing cards, etc..as you have time to enjoy the isolated island beaches. Amazing! You may want to bring a floaty, to just float around.
