Having scoured the internet looking for a day tour of the city and canal, I finally decided on Barefoot Panama. It was the right choice. I would highly recommend using Barefoot Panama for your tour in Panama. Kevin, the owner and guide we had, is extremely knowledgeable and personable. The tour began just as he said it would, by picking... More

We did the Food and Drink tour with Kevin from Barefoot Panama last week and it was great! We were staying in Casco Viejo and were looking for a tour that would give us a little city tour + food tour, and it definitely delivered. A lot of respect to Kevin for handling a larger than usual group (I think... More

We were very disappointed with the poor logistics and over-crowding. We were supposed to be pick up at our hotel between 7 and 8 am, but nothing came, so we took a taxi to the marina, only to have to wait one and a half hours to load a bus for a one hour trip to the Centennial bridge where...

This tour was a lot of fun. All the logistics worked out perfectly (rides to and from the hotel, timing, communication) and our tour guide was super informative (and funny). It didn't feel like a typical touristy tour. The boat ride was really cool, we got to see parts of the Panama Canal and lots of monkeys. Food was good... More

The tour started with the convenience of Jeff from Barefoot Panama picking us up from our hotel. It goes without saying that the guide will make or break a tour experience. Jeff was incredible! It was a lovely surprise that he was a Canadian fella with a lot of knowledge of Panama as he's lived there for a bit. So... More

We had a group of 10 people doing a 10 day tour all over Panama. We had people flying into Panama City at different times and also had some fly out of Panama City on different dates and it was no problem for Barefoot Panama. They took care of all the logistics for us! We visited Panama City, Panama Canal,... More

We had an excellent time and really enjoyed the jungle river tour. It was great that we were able to get into the tour last minute and Kevin was very helpful during the booking process and was able to give us great directions to the dock. Everyone loved being able to see the wildlife (especially the monkeys!) and our kayak... More

Right from the prompt beginning, each day was an adventure. Each place we visited has its own personality and beauty unlike anything I have ever been so lucky to experience. On this tour, we did spend some time in a van that allowed the tour group to bond very quickly which I thought was unforgettable in its own amazing way.... More

We did the cross country trip with Barefoot Panama the first week of February. I can't say enough good things about our tour guide Jeff. He was fun and made the trip very worthwhile. We saw so much in one week's time. We did a day tour of Panama City, and went to the Miraflores Locks, so interesting. We then... More

We took a Panama City Tour with Kevin as our guide. He picked us up at our hotel on time in a nice van and explained how the day would work, and he kept us on schedule without being a taskmaster. His style is casual and funny, but behind it he has a deep knowledge of the City’s history, the... More
