What a great tour company-its a must while in Panama. I had requested to take a tour that was not available. Kevin was prompt in replying to me and giving me some alternate options. I ended up taking 2 tours with Barefoot and both were awesome! Russ picked me up from my hotel where myself and 3 other people went... More

Ross was exceptional as he was on time and gave a great historic rundown of Panama and everything else we came upon. Kevin was also quite prompt on responding and communicated very well. My only complaint for this tour would be that the Embera tribe was not told that we were coming therefore they were taken off guard and rushed... More

After reading all the caveats about trips to San Blas, I spent a lot of time deciding on which tour operator to book with. I was not disappointed I chose Barefoot Panama. Everything was perfect, and as advertised. Our pickup came within the 1 hour window, and we were returned to our hotel within the time specified. The driver was... More

Really enjoyed this short tour of Panama Canal could do with more history and perhaps combination with the Milaflores lock

This is one of those annoying reviews of a tour that we dont do.. it should be on the Canal and Bay company that runs the transit.. we just put you on their boat More

Barefoot Panama, and Kevin in particular, came through with flying colours - again! We booked two tours with Barefoot Panama for this past week and both met and exceeded our expectations. The first, the partial transit through the canal, provided an insight into the canal operation that you miss from the side looking on. It was well run, offered both... More

I booked the Panama Canal partial transit tour through Barefoot Panama because of its overall reputation (viz. customer reviews on sites such as TA). Unfortunately, I had to cancel my trip (and the tour) at the last minute, so I can only speak as to my experience booking the tour. I communicated with Barefoot Panama's Kevin throughout my time spent... More

Did the Monkey Island, Lake Gatun & Indian Village tour with 4 friends. Our guide, Ross, was the perfect host! Full of information and enthusiasm! Taking a small boat on Lake Gatun and being really close to large container ships transiting the Panama Canal is an exhilarating experience! At Monkey Island, we saw two species of monkeys and fed them... More

I traveled to Panama with a few friends. We booked 2 tours with Barefoot Panama during our stay. The zip lining tour has 3 different stop overs and made for an excellent full day adventure. The hiking tour the following day was just as amazing. Kevin of Barefoot Panama made the trip very memorable. I would recommend his tours to... More

I reached out to Barefoot Panama to see if they could put together a tour that combined Soberania Park and a visit to a Embara/Wounan Village together in one day (after calling other local tour companies that couldn't), and Keven recommended the perfect thing - On the boat tour, we saw monkeys, caimans and lizards (in addition to lots of...
