Simply Super!

The city tour was beyond my expectations. Our guide Jeff made us feel like we met with an old friend living in Panama, although he was very proffessional. I was very impressed with his knowledge not only about the places we were visiting, but also about the many historical facts around them. One of my friends is a vegetarian, and... More

Barefoot Panama put together a custom tour for our family (our kids are aged 13 and 11) to see the Panama Canal and our guide for the day - Jeff - was absolutely awesome. The tour included a ride on the Panama Canal Railway, a visit to the Gatun Locks and Expansion Centre on the Colon side and the Miraflores... More

Whilst we enjoyed the places we went to on the tour- it would be very easy to just walk to these places on their own. It would be a better tour if there was more history involved regarding the development of casco viejo otherwise it felt like $50 to have someone walk us from place to place

I did the Panama City & Canal Tour with Jeff a couple of days ago, and it was excellent. Jeff’s a relaxed and positive guy from Vancouver, with a sense of humour, knack for chatting about all kinds of issues, good knowledge of the city from years living here, ability to make people feel welcome and included, and great hair...

Just finished the most amazing tour with Barefoot Panama. Jeff was our tour guide and he was fantastic. Relaxed, fun, friendly, with an endless knowledge of Panamanian history. He had an informed answer to any question that came up, full of interesting stories and facts. The day was at a relaxing pace, mix of driving and walking, and always interesting.... More

We spent a whole day on a cruise ship on the Canal with Barefoot Panama. The organization was perfect, the boat was comfortable, the food abundant and, most important, the staff in general was very nice and our guide was absolutely perfect. He was nice, knowledgable and funny. Of course it would be great if I could remember his name... More

Between Kevin & Jeff, they made our Panamanian vacation a fun-filled, always safe adventure Their knowledge of history, the city and surrounding areas is second to none. English is their first language and they have a great grasp of Spanish to help get you around. The Monkey Island was a highlight for the kids and the ziplining was so much... More

I looked at several tour companies before deciding on Barefoot Panama. Instead of spreading out four tours over a few different companies, I did a hail Mary and booked all my tours with Barefoot Panama. I wasn't disappointed and you won't be either. The two guides we ended up having were friendly and genuinely committed to an informative Panama experience.... More

Last minute booking via Kevin went well. The next morning we where picked up right on time at our hotel by our guide Al. His English was very good and he was quite informative the whole trip. First we went to the Gamboa pier and went with a small boat on the canal. Quite fun to pass the big ships.... More
