“Best way to experience Panama City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We were in town for a business convention and only had a day to see the sights. We booked this tour ahead of time with our hotel. We had Tuesday open and luckily that was Lumo's Panama City Tour Day. Luis called the night before to introduce himself and give us his cell phone. He showed up on time and was very polite. He has a vast knoweledge of the city and culture. You feel instantly like he is a friend giving you a tour of their city. He has great connections around the city and never rushed us through any sights. We had to be back to the hotel for a business meeting in the evening and he got us there in time even with the traffic of downtown Panama City. Thank you Luis for a memorable day.Your attention to every detail made this an incredible day. Luis speaks wonderful english and was very welcome since I speak no English. I would reccomend his company to anyone wanting to tour this area. If my travels bring me back to Panama City, I hope I can experience one of the other tours Luis offers.

“Simply fantastic tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We recently took two wonderful tours with Luis Moreno of Lumo Tours in Panama. What an educationally enriching experience to the Embera Village. He is knowledgeable, professional, efficient and a gracious individual. What really impressed us was his concern for the Village people. He made a special effort to bring fresh fruit to the children. We shared the goodies he had given us for the trip with the village children as well. It was easy to see that the people in the village appreciated all that Luis does for the Embera people. Educating the world about a different cultural group is terrific. Thanks Luis.

What a wonderful comment, I appreciate it from the heart.
I think you just helped more than me with the Embera, literally you left your shirts there! ... jejeje.
I really enjoyed being your guide in Panama.
Hugs, greetings.

“Luis Moreno is THE guy if you are looking to have fun in Panama”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

My friends and I traveled to Panama for a bachelor party. We were trying to get to Panama City from Isla Grande when we met Luis Moreno. We could not have asked for a better tour guide in Panama. He is very considerate and helpful and it was easy to communicate with him, given that his English is very good. Also, even though he was only supposed to give us a ride from Isla Grande to Panama City, he stopped and gave us a tour of the towns in between and gave us water and snacks, all without any extra charge. Also, his rates were cheaper than other businesses that we contacted. Another reason why I would recommend Luis Moreno is the strength of his connections in Panama. Through him, we were able to rent a yacht for the next day. Overall, I would highly recommend Luis Moreno and Lumo Tours if you are in Panama.

“Incredible Tour Operator in Panama City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

If you want to be treated like a king in Panama City you must contact Luis Moreno of Lumo Tours. Traveling in Lumo Tours Mercedes luxury bus was pleasant, but Luis offered incredible customer service whenever the opportunity arose. Literally everytime we got back on the bus from an excursion there would be a free drink and snack waiting for you at your seat. Our 8 person group would often split up late night and Luis managed to be there when any one of us would be ready to head home from a restaurant or bar and then circle back for the rest of the group. Lastly, Luis offered and planned terrific events and meals for a rather discerning group. Lumo Private Tour is the way to see Panama.
