Great day snorkeling in the Caribbean! Our guide from Barefoot Panama was so nice and knowledgeable. We were picked up from our hotel on time and it was just our family. We arrived at the snorkeling/dive shop and got our gear. Ordered lunch on advice from our guide. Beautiful boat ride to this small, quiet, gorgeous bay. Coral, fish, sandy... More

Jeff was an excellent and extremely knowledgeable guide. The tour was never dull and we are very happy that we took the tour instead of going it on our own. Great sites, great lunch and great coffee during the tour. Definitely worth the price of the tour!

Our first day tour with Barefoot Panama was a crossing off of the bucket list: a half day cruise on the Panama Canal, one of the Seven Wonders of the Industrial World. This was a truly fascinating experience – we had both travelled through locks before, but nothing on this scale. The pace of travel through the canal is of... More

We booked in advance our City tour to take in the Miraflores locks, Ancon Hill and the Old Town. We received a call as we were waiting in our Hotel reception to say that the vehicle allocated to our tour had a puncture and that there would be a delay in pick up. We appreciated the courtesy of the call.... More

My son and I did two of the tours with Barefoot Panama this week. The first one, the visit to the canal locks, then the walking tour here in Panama City was excellent. Russ was a very enjoyable and knowledgeable tour guide. The second tour, the train ride and driving tour through Colon, and the visit to Fort San Lorenzo... More

"You're more likely to regret not doing something, than regret doing it." I can't remember where I first heard this, but it has served me well over the years. I had walked past the Barefoot Panama office in Casco Viejo almost every day for a week and it was time to check it out. The perfect day to get out... More

My wife and I were traveling with our 6 year old son and Kevin suggested using the VIP arrival service to expedite the arrival through customs process. I highly recommend this service as we breezed... More
