This was a private day tour of the Miraflores locks with a pick up from our city hotel and a transfer to the Gamboa Rainforest. Luis or guide knew a great deal about everything locally and had impressive knowledge of the locks themselves. He was obviously known to a lot of the staff at the locks too. The Locks, the... More

We used Panama Trails on two consecutive days. We had 2 different guides. The one we had on the first day did not know much. His reply to almost everything we asked him was that he had forgotten. The info he gave us was no more than what was written on the signs, that we could read for ourselves. But,... More

We had a private day tour just for the two of us by this company. Started late and finished early. We saw the major highlights but we felt there were other things we left such as views from the high point in Panama City . The guide was just knowledgeable and could have been better. Would recommend you research the... More

Panama Trails organised a 2 week holiday for us in Panama and Costa Rica. Everything was arranged for us and the suggested itinerary and places to stay were spot on. It made the process of organising a complex trip so straightforward. I was pregnant, and they were invariably courteous and gave really considerate advice in what I should and shouldn't... More

This company books tours for you--but they seem to employ people with limited skills. First by not sending us the confirmation tickets for a boat tour so that we have problems the morning of the tour....and then sending tickets for the double-decker bus tour to the wrong hotel (even tho I sent them the address for the hotel we were...
