Miguel was a mine of information on Panama history and drove us around safely to the land marks and dropped off at airport. Enjoyed our tour, thanks Miguel
Our tour of Panama City and canal with Miguel was by far the best and most informed tour that we have ever taken. He was prompt, friendly,and extremely knowledgeable. At no time did we feel rushed and his ability to negotiate crowds and traffic is unsurpassed especially with the impending papal visit. His command of English is excellent. We will be leaving Panama with many memories and a good understanding of Panama's history and present day conditions. I would strongly recommend Miguel's services

Kay McCurdyUnited States
Miguel did an outstanding day tour of Panama City for us. He took is to Panama Viejo, 2 artisan markets with very good prices, Casco Viejo and the Causeway to several beautiful islands. He answered all our many questions about tourism, politics, history and pointed out numerous special trees etc. We couldn't have been happier.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mrs. Kay, my satisfaction is to know you both had a good time. Kind regards
Tina H.United States
Miguel picked us up from the port with no problems. He is a great driver and guide and spoke English very well. The trip was fantastic with a pretty dugout canoe ride to the Indian village, another canoe ride then a hike to a beautiful waterfall. Back to the village where the Indians talked about their life then we ate delicious fish and plantains. After eating we had a dancing demonstration then we were invited to dance. Wonderful day that I would repeat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mrs. Tina, I feel good when my guests have enjoyed their tour as I did, thank you for your comments. Kind regards

We only had one full day in Panama and Miguel's city tour was perfect. What a fabulous skyline of Panama City. He went over the history of the city as well as the Country of Panama. Did a little shopping in a local market and had a terrific lunch at a local restaurant. Now that I look back, I wished we went to Monkey Island instead of going to the canal and the museum, which can easily be done on your own. FYI - skip the movie on the canal, it's full of propaganda. The museum "walk through" is good.
Gary ColeUnited States
Miguel was great. We had hotel pickup and everything went very smooth. With the van we were able to visit and see a wide variety of different places within Panama. My only recommendation is to visit the Canal either early in AM or later in PM. Miguel requested we start earlier. We flew in the night before and were unable to get the group up early. We got to Canal a little after 10 am and a lot of the vessel action was already done. The remainder of the day was great. Miguel is 5 star
We had an amazing day with Miguel. We have traveled extensively and he was one of the best guides we ever had. Super knowledgable on everything we wanted to know. I would highly recommend him!! He did the city tour and monkey island tour in one day which is a great combo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your words Mrs. Tara, it makes me feel satisfied for my labor knowing all of you enjoyed the tour. Kind regards
Kenneth DanhofUnited States
Miguel was great. He is very well informed about many topics not just the canal ( and he really knows the canal well). He was flexible with the schedule which allowed us to see the wildlife in the morning before rains came. He was attentive to our preferences and made the tour feel very personal to us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comments. I am very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour here in Panama, I enjoyed it too. regards

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.
Charles HowardUnited States
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
John de DenghyUnited States
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.

George OverendUnited States
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.

Elizabeth StelzUnited States
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.
Mark FicklinScottsdale, AZ, United States
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
Catherine McDonaldUnited States
I would would recommend Miguel to anyone visiting Panama. He was on-time, fluent in English and very informative.
Jarek DabrowskiUnited States
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.

Robert TaylorLong Beach, CALIFORNIA, United States
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.
David WangUnited States
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+++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello guys, Im glad to know you enjoyed the tour as I enjoyed your visit, Im sure you will enjoy the rest of your other tours in south america. Regards
Yelena BerezhanskayaUnited States

Gerald PhilsonLakelland, FL, United States
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
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much for your great comments, I´m glad to know you and your wife enjoyed the tour, thanks for choosing us .
Jill BauerFernandina Beach, FL, United States
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 kam leider fast eine Stunde zu spät zum Treffpunkt. Aber dann legte er sich mächtig ins Zeug und zeigte uns viel von seiner Heimat und der Hauptstadt. Insgesamt eine gute Tour und ein guter Guide.
Richard HagstromUnited States
Miguel was very prompt, spoke good English, altered his route to accommodate our requests, had great knowledge and passion on the history of the area and the canal. Would highly recommend him.

Phillip NoelChicago, IL, United States
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.
