No trip to Panama City would be complete without a visit to the Canal. Both Kevin and Jeff were very responsive in email, we were a large group and had many organizational questions. Jeff picked us up right on time and took us for a fun day, easily navigating the roads while filling us in on the history of Panama... More

Boarded the 300 passenger multi deck ship around 7AM at a harbor in the Amador area. Passengers all found viewing spots with a variety of options to sit outside, top deck covered, in the dining areas at the window tables, etc.and then a buffet breakfast was made available. They served breakfast, lunch and snacks. Bar available. The full transit to... More

Kevin put together a custom itinerary that was exactly the trip we wanted! Panama is a BEAUTIFUL country, but it's tourism industry is very immature; don't try to navigate it yourself. Kevin will take care of every detail!

Barefoot Panama offered OUTSTANDING service and helped make our family vacation truly special. Kevin's attention to detail on his recommendations was matched by the quality of the tours- superb. Don't visit Panama without taking in the old city tour, the canal passage, and you absolutely must do the San Blas Islands. Barefoot Panama put our mind at ease over all... More

For starters the company just hire or contact some other people to provide the tour, we got a driver at the hotel that was not identified as a member of barefoot, the car was ok, we had to wait more than one hour at a place since they choose to add another passenger that was arriving at the airport, our...

Hello Ricardo Thank you very much for your review, we take them very seriously and your feedback is important to us. Yes, we realize that logistically San Blas is very difficult to organize, hence we do it for you. Most companies aid each other on trips such as San Blas due to the monstrosoty of its logistics. We are sad... More

I told him my wife had some knee problems and he told us which tours would be most appropriate for us. Both our tours were led by Malek. he is a native Panamanian, spoke... More

Let me start off by saying my tour guide was real cool. It felt like we were just hanging out but he was professional. There was myself (solo traveller) and an older couple on the tour (3 people total) I was picked up in front of my hotel within a reasonable amount of time that I was told to be... More

We chose Barefoot for their adventure tours. Not too many tour companies in Panama City offer the cave tour. Arliess picked us up promptly and off we went to lake Bayano! Barefoot provided all the necessary amenities for the trip: Agua, snacks, a changing area in a large gated private house near the lake. We had a nice boat ride... More

I don't normally write on Trip Advisor but I just had to get online and write a review for Barefoot Panama. Kevin, the owner of this company went above and beyond in helping me book tours with his company. I ended up booking 3 tours in Panama with Kevin. He answered all my emails promptly and even fitted me into... More

Barefoot Panama helped arrange our vacation and we took the tour of Panama City. What an amazing place from one of a kind ecosystem, to the canal, to Old Town's best local ice cream and microbrew. Given from a local's point of view with so much information. Had a great time with great people!
