We booked a number of tours with Rudy while we were in Panama (Rainforest Discovery Center, Summit Gardens; Panama Canal Railway, Gatun Locks, Fort Lorenzo, Colon, Portobelo; Embera Village; Isla Barro Colorado Smithsonian Tropical Research Center). All these tours were excellent. He also provided our transportation to and from the airport. Rudy is an excellent guide. He speaks very good English (as well as German and Italian) in addition to his native Spanish. He is very knowledgeable about Panama, its history, culture, wildlife, the canal, and native people. He was always on time. He is a very safe driver. His vehicles are excellent. He is very willing to spend what ever time you desire at the attractions. He will also customize his usual tours to meet your expectations.
Rudy's wife Patty schedules and makes reservations for all of the tours. The tour price includes entrance fees. Rudy's prices may be a little higher than some other operators, but the convenience and quality of service more than make up for any small additional cost.
When our cellphone did not work in Panama (Sprint forgot to put the sim card into the phone), Rudy took us to a cellphone store and helped us buy a cheap cellphone that we could use to call home. Just one example of Rudy's level of service.
