What I paid for is not what I received. I emailed Barefoot Panama with private feedback as I was very disappointed with the tour, they did not take my feedback seriously. Barefoot Panama does not tell you this upfront, but they do not run the tours that you purchase on their website, they contract San Blas tours to their partner... More

We took three separate tours with this company and all were fantastic. The company has small group tours which never exceeded nine persons while we were there. Our tour guide "Ross" was knowledgeable, friendly, informative and helpful. The tours never felt rushed. We were always picked up within the designated times and kept updated via e-mail of any changes. The... More

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Panama simply because it was a country I had yet to visited. A few days prior to going I booked a City tour based on the great reviews on TripAdvisor. The City tour, guided by Ross was excellent and provided a good background on the history of the country, the Canal and other... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great insight into Panama, both historic and current. He spoke amazing English and was very friendly. We only had a day so this gave us a really good overview of the main sites.

Tour guide very knowledgeable!! Tour includes great views of the city, the Mira Flores locks, Old Town and lunch was on the causeway! Also, a visit to the Smithsonian research area was made.This is an all day tour where you need comfortable shoes and your camera. There was not a thing I didn't like about this tour!!

We booked an Indian Village, Monkey Island with a Panama Jungle tour after reading reviews here. Our guide Ross from Zambia provided in depth and relavent information. There were just 7 of us on this 7 hour tour, and everyone had a fantastic time. I can't imagine anything better, really. We ended up going to a food court with so... More

Friendly helpful emails from when we first booked the tour. A knowledgeable tour guide showed us the main sites/points of interest in and around Panama city finishing with an interesting walking tour. I would recommend this tour company.

The communication was great from the start to the finish. Ross and Malik were great guides and were so informed and friendly. They really like talking with their guests. I feel like I made friends. The monkeys were adorable and got so close to us. The village people were welcoming and the children were amazing.

It's often said that the best way to see a city or country is by knowing somebody who lives there who can guide you once you arrive. Barefoot Panama is like that. It's as if you have this friend from college or your hometown who now happens to live in Panama. We arranged three tours (Lake Gatun/Indian Village/Monkey Island, El... More
