We had only a short time in Panama City and Miguel did a great job of showing us the city. We enjoyed seeing the canal and the beautiful city. He answered all our questions and we felt like we not only saw the city but had a great feel for the people and their life style. Thanks Miguel.

We very much enjoyed our tour with Miguel. He is very knowledgeable, courteous and did an excellent job of communicating the history and beauty of Panama City and the locks. Also, we're thankful he kept informed about the times ships would be transiting the canal so we could see the locks in action. On our own, we wouldn't have been aware timing was an issue. We're so glad we connected with Miguel. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for use my services mr. Howard and thank you very much for your comments, that is very important for me to improve my services and I'm glad to read that you have enjoyed your City Tour and Panama Canal visit that day for me was a pleasure. Regards

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Muchas gracias señor John, agradecido por su visita y me alegro saber que le gustó mucho el tour, a sus órdenes siempre. Saludos cordiales

Miguel was an outstanding guide who was extremely knowledgeable, changed his planned itinerary to meet our requests as the day went along, was a friendly and excellent communicator and a delight to spend the day with. We have already recommended him to our hotel concierge and expect to do the same to any of our friends or acquaintances who come to Panama.

We have used more than 25 TBL guides. ALL have been uniformly good, thus I resist the hyperbole of saying anyone of them is "The Best." However, Miguel is in the top, top echelon of the guides we have used these past ten years. We had a wonderful time with him and recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Miguel's tour of the Panama canal and Panama city was outstanding. He obviously loves his country, culture and the fascinating history. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with him. We learned so much more than venturing out on our own on our first full day in Panama city. I highly recommend Miguel.

Miguel is the very best! He provided one of the best tours we have had. He is so knowledgable, easy going and flexible. He really knows his stuff had great command of a group of varied ages. His tour was one of our highlights of the trip. Don't miss the Visitor Center at the New Locks. We have done a full transit before but this was very interesting. Miguel knows the best places for lunch? He is the most delightful man! We had a schedule issue which was our fault. Miguel jumped right in and solved all

If short on time and can't afford to take the full Panama Canal passing tour this is the next best thing. Miguel is an expert on the canal and Panama in general. He answered all the questions patiently and in detail. He was willing to adjust the itinerary to best fit our needs. Highly recommend his assistance.

Miguel was on-time picking me up at airport & the next day for tour of new Canal Locks, Miraflores Visitor Center, old city, causeway to islands & Metro subway ride. Had a good lunch at restaurant w/view of marina. Sorta funny as every person at the restaurant welcomed him by name when we walked in. He's a safe driver, has a clean, comfortable vehicle and provided just the right amount of information about the Canal Expansion and the city's history. Fluent in English. Thanks for a great time, Miguel!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments, Mr. Robert, they help me to improve my work and motivate me to continue giving a good service.

Miguel is an amazing tour guide. Being born and raised in Panama, Miguel has an incredible amount of firsthand knowledge about the area. We toured the Panama Canal, an affordable market place selling local goods, and the Casco Viejo. Miguel not only spoke perfect English, but also went above and beyond to make sure our experience was memorable by providing water on the hot day, recommending an amazing restaurant for lunch, and bringing us to hidden gems only locals know about. A+++

Miguel is fantastic, he made sure we saw everything on our to see list plus taking on a tour of inside the Trump Hotela major plus. He also remembered that we are in the craft business and took us to 2 great markets,plus one of his favorite local restaurants. When we returned to our ship the other passengers were envious of all that we saw and purchased

We are so very glad we had the tour with Miguel prior to the canal crossing. His tour highlighted all the places on land around the canal that made it much more meaningful for us to see from the ship during transit. We had a nice lunch in a local spot, not a tourist buffet! Our tour of the old town was at a pace where we could enjoy the architecture and drink in the character of the city, both new and old. He communicated with us very well, was an excellent guide and spoke excellent English.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mrs. I´m very happy to know you enjoy your tour and I´m sure you will enjoy the rest of your cruise, please say hello to your friends.

Miguel is an incredibly knowledgeable native Panameño. It was a private tour of just two of us, which we are English speaking (Americans) and his American English was perfect. Miguel is very adaptable as not many of the ships go through the canal around late-morning/early lunch times because they switch directions on the traffic flow. So he brought us back after touring other areas, provided a snack, water and even went to a craft market, not on the agenda! He also helped with my Panama hat purchase.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments Mr. Phillip, is very important for us to read your comments so we can improve our service, my satisfaction is to jnow you enjoined the the tour during your visit in Panamá, Regards.
