Robert Rigby-HallUnited States
Clemente was a wonderful guide! He drove us around both the city and surrounding area, stopped at multiple sites and shared his love for his country and its fascinating history. We went off the beaten track a little and saw some areas that few tourists go which was excellent. A really wonderful guide and tour.

Jean ShahnasarianUnited States
We cannot say enough great things about Clemente. He knows Panama along with the canal very well. You will learn more from him than anyone else could provide. Plus he has a passion. The history of the US owning the canal, and the transition back to Panama is an amazing story!! Thank you Clemente!
Aisha HullUnited States
Tour itself was informative, tour guide was ok.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was at the agree meeting point as schedule (hotel lobby) , you was not there, instead i found you standing outside the hotel. You requested me to by you and your husband tickets at the Canal, at the local People rate, because you both are african american you could pass as locals, I told you No. That was cheating my company and my country. You requested to visit neiborhoods where blacks Panamanian live, i did so, driving out of our route, and touring for almost 8 hours instead of the 6hours 30min.Sorry.

Clemente picked us up at our Panama City hotel to take us to Colon to board a ship after visiting the Caribbean side of the canal, including the new locks and the fort. 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 the area.
Sharon P.Easton, CT, United States
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.
William AndersonUnited States
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.
Vinko Culjak MathieuCanada
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.
Lance WaltonUnited States
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.
James BarteltUnited States
Clemente was thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. He went out of his way to adjust our tour itinerary on the fly, when we slightly altered our interests. We even had a rare foot crossing of the Panama Canal. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Jim, more than work, I enjoy every moment of the time I was with you and your son, it was a pleasure and a honor.
Darin HillUnited States
Clemente was an Outstanding Guide - So Professional and Informative. I would highly recommend Clemente's guide services to anyone. We toured Panama City, the canal, Colon and a nice Carribean seaside cafe for lunch. I travel and use Tours by Locals frequently - I was most impressed by him, his knowledge and ability to share with us. He also did an amazing job of customizing the tour to our needs. Outstanding and Thank You!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For me It was a honor and a pleasure to be at your service. Many thanks.
Salim VisramToronto, M4C5L3, Canada
Our tour of Panama City was highly informative and most enjoyable. Clemente's sense of humour and his knowledge made for a fun tour of the Panama Locks & the city. The comfortable van driven by Samuel was an added bonus. Thank you, Clemente. Happy Holidays and all the best for 2019. Salim
Christine KnightUnited States
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.
Barry LandryUnited States
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.
Carole LangloisPenrose, COLORADO, United States
Clemente was awesome. He is very informative and he showed us about everything there was to be seen and had us back at the ship in plenty of time. He redid our tour to accomadate seeing Larry's old fort and places he knew when stationed at Fort Davis. We even got to walk across the canal. Thank you for a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Carole...it was a pleasure.
Dennis EkerUnited States
Clemente gave us a wonderful day. He was very attentive to the abilities of my 87 year old Mother. His Canal knowledge is amazing.
Dennis EkerUnited States
Clemente was a joy to be with. His local knowledge is fantastic and he really seemed to enjoy sharing it with us.
Alan SchmadtkeUnited States
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.
Dr. John DicksonCanada
This was our first experience with Tours by Locals and it could not have been any better. Clemente was an absolute delight; so very kind to my elderly father and incredibly knowledgeable. Everything totally exceeded our expectations....cannot thank you enough for a perfect day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoy every moment of your company. More than work, It was a pleasure and a honor to be at your service. I am at your orders any other time. Many thanks.
Alex G.United States
Excellent tour and guide. I had a relatively short stay in Panama and Clemente was very flexible throughout the entire time, making sure that I got to see (only) what I wanted. He is very experienced and can easily adjust the conversation/information about Panamanian history, economy, and politics to all levels. While driving through the forest, he stopped several times and pointed out monkeys and sloths that I would have never noticed on my own. The tour and guide were absolutely worth every penny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Álex, just as I told you its not abouth the money my best reward is knowing that you enjoy, to meet your expectations and beyond. My David Copperfield (my wife) already dissapear the money you pay me, but earing from you, make me feel super fantastic, hasta pronto amigo.
Michelle TaylorUnited States
Clemente was an absolutely wonderful tour guide. I plan to use his services next time I am in Panama. He was not only very knowledgeable but very friendly and provided an excellent tour of Panama City. I had limited time and he made the most of it. Can't recommend him highly enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really enjoy taking you and your husband Mathew, to know our city and Canal, just as I told you, my reward is knowing that you enjoy and value my effort to make your stay in Panama, the best...many thanks, I am at your orders any time. Gracias.

Clemente was our guide for five days and was good every time. He was especially knowledgeable about the local history, was sensitive and inclusive to all ethnicities and religions, making for an all inclusive, interesting and fun trip. We would definitely use him again if we visit Panama in the future.
Charles RichardsonUnited States

Judith OrrUnited States
The guide for our one day tour of the Canal and Panama City couldn't have been better! Clemente didn't just show us sights, he made us feel like we had seen and experienced Panama! He began by telling us where we would go and what we would see and then proceeded to take us along on an adventure to discover this country.
Steven BreinesUnited States
Our tour of the Embera village exceeded our expectations thanks to Clemente. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and does his best to make your experience special. From pickup at our cruise ship to hotel dropoff all went smoothly. He even provided transfer from our hotel to the airport all wthout a hitch. I actually referred him to a fellow traveler looking for an adventure.
Alan AndersonUnited States
Clemente was very knowledgeable and gave s great flexible tour. Had a great lunch. This is truly tour you want to take for god Panama Canal operates and history of country and canal. Just s must
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The money that you pay for your is not the most important for me, the most important is knowing that you value all that I do to make your stay in my Country, the best. From my heart I enjoy every moment I spent in your company, many thanks.
Caroline VroomUnited States
Clemente was a very good tour guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly. He made sure we had a good day. We learned a lot about Panama, historically and what is going on today. We went to many areas of the city as well as the locks. Really got a great overview of Panama. We only had the one day before the cruise so this tour really put it together for us.
Sandra SnoweUnited States
Clemente was patient and helpful with my request to see potential expat neighborhoods. Unfortunately we didn't get to ride the metro but did visit the large northern bus station & mall. The food court will make you feel in Fast Food Land. Clemente's van is a bit rough, but we got around safely. Thanks Clemente, I enjoyed your help.
Kevin KernUnited States
Fantastico, my wife and I had the best time on this tour with Clemente. He was very knowledgeable on just about everything to do with Panamanian culture and history. And his English is excellent. Although there were no sloths to be seen on this trip we had an incredible time with the monkeys. 3 different kinds to be exact. And he also took some extra time to show us some other sites. Tip. Do the 7am trip. You won't be disappointed. The monkeys are hungry and you have the bananas :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For my been your Private guide It was more than work, It was a pleasure and a honor. Many thanks.
Stephen GardnerUnited Kingdom
Clemente was an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. He showed us all the areas we expected to see and several we didn't. I cannot recommend him enough. Thank you Clemente

Ron MeyerUnited States
What can I say? Clemente did what we asked for and far exceeded our expectations. He is awesome and truly cares about your experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about all things Panama.
Clemente is very caring. Everything I asked him to do for me, he did. And he took me to places and showed me sights seldom seen by tourists. He had intimate knowledge of Panama and shared this with me. This made my visit most interesting.
Karen WilsonUnited States
Just finished my tour with Clemente. He is fabulous. So knowledgeable and personable. Took me all over the city. Gave me so much great info on history. I love to learn as well as see the sights and he provided me with both goals. He is a true asset to your organization. I would highly recommend him to any traveler.
Norman KeeUnited States

Clemente is an excellent guide. He is knowledgeable about the History of Panama and showed us as much as we could see in a day from the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific Coast. Panama City was fascinating. We recommend him as a Superb Guide. Thank you Clemente was a wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judy, It was a wonderfull Christmas eve in your company, thank you for making me part of your vacation.
Paulette LimaUnited States
Clemente was well informed and good at sharing his knowledge. He was knowledgable and gave so much information we should of taken notes. He will tailor the tour to your requests. He picked us up in a passenger van that he kept running so it would remain cool and comfortable. It was designed for maybe 10-12 people so with only three of us it was bumpy, but after I sat in the front seat I was more comfortable. We felt we experience enough of Panama City area and went through the museum at the canal/locks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My biggest reward is to know that my efforth to your stay in Panama, a very,very nice one, and at the end your leave with a clear knoledge and understanding of Panama and its people. You are welcome any time.
Chris MilanoUnited States
One of the best tours we've taken. Learned a lot, covered a lot of ground and had a great day! We'd highly recommend our new friend Clemente to serve as your guide in Panama!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very glad that you value my effort to give you my best, I believe thats the best compensation, many thanks. Remember what I told you about the panamanian versión of "David Copperfield"...
Steve BlozisUnited States
Clemente was very professional tour guide which we thought highly of and would rehire. He was in the hotel lobby to meet us on time at 8:30 AM and dressed in polo shirt and creased pants (my wife noticed). He drove the four of us in 7-10 person van (so there was lots of room) on the Panama City Tour. He had boom mike into van audio system so everyone could hear his inciteful commentary during the day. Good driving skills (traffic is a little crazy here but never felt uncomfortable).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I appreciate very much your suggestions, I will do so.
Philip A.United States
We had a wonderful tour given by Clemente. He was extremely knowledgeable of Panama City and the rest of the surrounding area. His personal insight and first-hand accounts of day to day operations of the Canal were fascinating. He showed us areas of the city we would not have found on our own. Clemente was always mindful of our safety, and his driving and parking skills were excellent. He listened to our interests and tailored the tour to our time schedule and allowed us to set the pace at each stop.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both...Jajaja ...Yes she was very happy...I had a great day in your company, knowing that you really enjoy your tour and you appreciate my effort is the best reward. Many thanks from My David Copperfield (my wife) and my kinds. Hope to meet you another time. I also Hope you had a Wonderfull birthday!!!
Janet ReynoldsUnited Kingdom
Disappointing start, had to wait as Clemente thought it was 9:00 start not 8:30. Once he arrived vehicle quality was poor, wet seat & seat belts. No microphone so couldn't hear in back. Clemente was very knowledgeable, the tour gave good insight into Panama, the highlight was the view from Ancon hill. So much more to see than initial sights around Colon port. Driving in Panama was hair raising, we were glad to have survived & be back at ship.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was at the port from 0800am, But I for some reason thought that our meeting time was 0930am, as soon as I received your call, in less than five minutes a met you, I offer you my apologies for this human mistake and so I do again, I am deeply sorry for the 15 minutes delay. One of the seat was damp, but your group was 8 and my van have 14 seats for passengers, I offer you my deepest apologies. I don't have words to express to you how bad a feel than you din´t have a good tour, please accept my apologies
Had a great tour with Clemente to San Lorenzo Parque Nacional and the Gatun locks.. He is very knowledgeable and could tell us a lot about the sites that we visited. Would recommend the tour and Clemente to anyone.
Eugene LeeUnited States
Zak JarrellUnited States

Dr. Yvonne S. ThorntonUnited States
If there were six stars, Clemente would have earned them. He was one of the best tour guides my husband and I have had the pleasure of knowing. He was very informative and very accommodating. His knowledge of Colón was second to none, having toured with other Panamanian guides during our stay. He made history LEAP off the pages of a text book. His intimate knowledge of Panama, the Caribbean Coast and the Canal were truly awesome. We just LOVED being with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure and a honor.
Robert JosephUnited States
Our group enjoyed Clemente's comprehensive tour of Panama. He was super enthusiastic about his City and it showed during our 6 hours of touring. I recommend him to other groups.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure.
Clemente could not have been a better local guide. He was enthusiastic and welcoming. Took us to the Canal and explained a lot to us there. Then toured around and about panama city. A great day. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Time spent in your Company was a real pleasure and honor, many thanks.
Had a pleasure to have Clemente as a guide during my stay in Panama. He did excellent job! everything was on time, the entire trip was on a high level, the transportation itself was also great! Definitely, can recommend Clemente for other tourists! Thank you for your job!
Gordon ArnoldUnited States
Clemente is great. He has worked various functions at the canal so he is very knowledgeable. He is clear in his delivery of information in both Spanish and English for our group of 8. We would highly recommend his for other tourists visiting the canal zone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks.
John CrimminsUnited States
Clemente was an awesome guide. We had a great day exploring the locks, learning about the area and a terrific lunch at a really nice restaurant on the water.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For me, It was an honor and a pleasure, I am at your orders any time.
Suzanne HallUnited States
I would rate our tour a 5 Clemente was great. Very personable. Communicated with us well. We saw stuff I don't think others on our ship got to see—for instance climbing that hill with the great view of Panama. I also loved Old Town, but by then we were tired and didn't take advantage of it as much as we should have. Next time, I would go there after the viewing of the Panama Canal, have lunch, then do walk….. But I have zero complaints, and only compliments for this tour.
Clemente is very worried about details. He make us understand the history of Panama. We visited important places like cross way and the canal. Sorry for my writings. English is not my mother language.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure and a honor to be at your family service. Many thanks for a great day.
Clement was very knowledgeable and flexible, and put in a lot of effort during the day. His English was excellent.
Susan S.United States
Fantastic attitude. Great time. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gracias Susan!
This was our first time in Panama and our first Tours by Locals experience. Clemente gave us a great introduction to the city including a thorough visit at the Miraflores locks on the Canal. We received a good overview of the country's history and a personal view of recent history through the eyes of someone who lived it. Clemente was welcoming and personable and obviously eager to share his city with newcomers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was and honor and a pleasure. Many thanks.
Diana HeardUnited States
My booking confirmed San Lorenzo, Portobello and the Canal Expansion. Upon meeting our guide it was not possible to visit these 3 locations in the 6 hour time frame. I would have been happy to pay for 8 hours so that we could have seen San Lorenzo (as it is so close to the new Canal).
Richard MartinUnited States
Great tour by Clemente 5 star !!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: GRACIAS!!! IT WAS A PLEASURE TO SPEND THE DAY IN YOUR COMPANY.
Rachel QuintoUnited States
Our long layover in PANAMA City on our flight to Manaus was well worth it. Clemente used our time to the maximum. He was a knowledgeable guide and sensitive to our wishes. Very pleasing personality, prompt and professional. Good job !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks, it was my pleasure, at your orders any time. Gracias!
You could not have a friendlier, helpful, informative and proud Panamanian show you around Panama City. Our day with Clement was an absolute pleasure and we would not have changed a thing. If we are back in Panama, we will definitely take other tours that he offers. Thanks again for making the start of our trip so good.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was and honor and a pleasure to be your personal tour guide for your stsy in Panama.
Eric BilauUnited States
Patricia MartinUnited States
An excellent tour with an excellent guide! We wanted to get out of Panama City for a day. We previously toured with Clemente and had such a memorable experience that we knew we wanted to tour with him again. He is what Panama is all about: he is friendly, he is very knowledgeable, and he enjoys being with people.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many, many thanks for such a great review. It was a honor and a pleasure to spend sunday in your company. Nowing that you had a excellent day and to see that you enjoy your tour in my company is mreally my compensation, the money, you pay for the tour?

Clemente is the best tour guide I've ever had the pleasure of touring with. His knowledge of the country is astonishing to say the least. His endearing personality created a happy atmosphere for all ten of us. He was so flexible and wanted to please us. He went way above and beyond to ensure that we had the best tour possible. My daughter is going to Panama in a few months and will definitely use Clemente. I can't say enough about the terrific job he did. Thank you Clemente and Tours by Locals!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your Family made me feel like a other member of the family, I told youmy best reward is knowing that you had a good time. My David Cooperfield (my wife), disappeared my pay as I give it to her, but the memory of the great day I had in you family company, will never disappear. Muchas Gracias!
Barbara CritchlowUnited States
Clemente was great! He's very knowledgeable about the history and the workings of the Panama Canal. He was VERY accommodating of our group that came in on 3 different flights and some had mobility issues. We were running late but he made sure we got into the Miraflores locks and museum before they closed and gave us the highlights of the museum. Don't hesitate to book with Clemente; You'll be happy you did!
Our party of 8 were met by Clemente at time pre arranged in Colon, Panama. Clemente exceeded our expectations as a tour guide. He was so knowledgeable of the tour we were on. Clemente provided so much information, history etc and answered any questions that we had. He also transported us in a very comfortable vehicle, made for larger parties. I would recommend his tour of Panama to anyone interested. Clemente is a very kind, caring person as well. People like Clemente make your day so memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was more than happy to be at your service. Knowing that you had a good time is the best pay for me. Many thanks.
Clemente was my guide on a combined Canal and City tour. He is a very experienced and knowledgeable guide. He loves his job. Clemente schedules the tour wisely and makes it an exciting day for his clients. I've got a great introduction to Panama's history and culture. He is also a very friendly and nice person. I would highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was for my a honor and a pleassure to be at your orders. Many thanks.
Robert PascaleUnited States
What a terrific time! Our guides were charming, informative and a lot of fun, and the food was amazing. The only warning -- come hungry. I've been on a number of food walking tours and none have come close in terms of the quantity of food served. We realized after the first stop that we'd better pace ourselves or we wouldn't survive the last one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks.
We had a great day with Clemente, he is very knowledgeable and friendly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks it was an honor.
Danielle StevensUnited States
Clemente does a wonderful job, particularly with tailoring the tour to your group's needs. We bring a university group each year to Panama of 15-20 people and he does a great job with the Canal and City Tour. I would highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's a pleasure and a honor, I enjoy every moment of our tour.
Lisa Sheppardprinceton jct, NEW JERSEY, United States
The best guide we have ever had (10 plus cruises). He kept all enthralled with the history and information about Panama. We were children, teens, adults, and senors. He was voted awesome.

Tony BraswellUnited States
If you are going to Panama - - YOU MUST MEET CLEMENTE! We researched different tour companies, including those referred by our hotel. The positive reviews of Clemente "sold" us. This guy is AWESOME. In 6 hours he will make you love Panama, and show you the amazing wealth of culture that makes the city and country so unique. The canal, the rain forest, the entire city, we saw it all. He's a walking history book and so personable. A fantastic tour with a truly spectacular guide, HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jajaja thanks... thanks, a million thanks, it was very nice to meet you, I enjoy every minute of your company, that you enjoy the tour, that I met all your expectations, that you had a wonderfull day, that is really my compensation. It was an honor and a pleasure to be at your service.
Patricia MartinUnited States
Clemente was informative and enjoyable. He made our visit to the Caribbean side of Panama a special event. He supplied us with historical information about the area and, more importantly, about the people. We would highly recommend his services!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a honor and pleasure. Gracias.
Jane AdamsUnited States
Clemente was an excellent tour guide and personalized our tour as needed. My family, 2 adults and 3 children, learned many things from him. It was nice to get a native's point of view. We would recommend Clemente to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure and a honor to be with your family as your private guide.
Enrique DominguezUnited States
Clemente was a wonderful guide: friendly, lively,great sense of humor, and very informed presenting historical and current information in a very interesting and helpful way. We had a great day seeing Panama City; we had a great day with Clemente. There were four of us touring with Clemente for more than 6 hours. We all highly recommend Clemente. Great guy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure, at your orders any time.
Clemente was a very knowledgeable and amiable guide. He did not shy away from showing us some of the 'less pretty' aspects of the places we visited, but his enthusiasm and obvious fondness for the areas we visited on the tour was contagious. I would highly recommend him.
Joel PriceScottsdale, AZ, United States
Clemente's background caught us and we were not disappointed. We had a handicapped member and I was supposed to wheel her--don't know I could have--but he quickly assumed responsibility for the wheeling.He made everything real and bringing us to the locks like everyone else made our experience aboard ship the next day more meaningful. Nice drive with explanation around town. Unfortunately, highways did not allow much stopping for pics. Nice personality and very warm to all of us. Good English. Grade-A
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a honor to be your private guide.
Diana AccomazzoUnited States
Best day from 3 week trip due to Clemente. Always felt secure. Our group of 7 all agree tour covered old and new from coast to coast. Would give 10 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A million thanks! It was my honor and pleasure, remenber the panamanian David Cooperfield (my wife). Best regards.
Kathleen FrankovicUnited States
Clemente is extremely knowledgeable about the Canal, having worked on it for several years. We had been tepid about visiting the Locks area beforehand, but were very glad we did. Now we understand ,uch more. He also took us to the crossroads of the Spanish trail across Panama and the highest point in the city for a spectacular view -- these were both things we would never have thought of doing. At the same time, he made sure we did visit places we asked to see like the Biodiversity Museum. Terrific!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was my honor.
Allan TomlinsonUnited States
This was a great tour and Clemente was an excellent guide. He was well organized, well informed and as important, very personable. We were two families with teenagers and this was a great overview of the city (and information on the country) in a 6 hour tour that he adjusted for us. I would definitely recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my honor.
Barry WallaceUnited States
Clemente is very professional tour guide. I brought my 94 year old father back to Panama as he was once stationed there in 1942.. Clemente made my fathers dreams come true.. We felt so comfortable with Clemente.. He is an excellent tour guide and a great person!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks to the Wallace Family, it was an honor to be your guide. I enjoy every moment in your company.

Clemente was prompt, informative and very enjoyable to be around So nice to be on a private tour rather than on a big bus we all truly enjoyed our tour and will for sure be booking further tours with this company
