Dennis was fabulous! He made sure we got to see and do exactly what we asked him for. It was fun, informative, and I’d recommend it to everyone who has four hours whether it be a layover, or the first day of a trip to get acquainted with the city. Thanks again!

Freddie was an excellent tour guide, friendly, helpful and kind. We really loved our tour of the old city and the canal. Would 100% recommend the tour starting at 12 noon, if possible would also recommend visiting the Panamá Canal Museum on your own that morning in Casco Viejo. The day all together was perfect and would book another tour with Freddie if we visit again.

Our guide Rogelio (Roger) arrived at our hotel to collect us right on time and escorted us to a private vehicle which was comfortable and spacious. We had transited the Panama Canal so suggested that we did not need to do the Canal Museum. We were interested in Old Panama and Casco Viejo and anything else that could be fitted in to our 4 hours. Roger drove past the ruins of Old Panama and pointed some out. It was only later that I found out there is actually an old Panama Museum. I would’ve liked to have, and would have paid to go into that to see more. We did a full walking tour of Casco Viejo and got all the history from our guide who was very knowledgeable. Then onto the causeway where we stopped for a photo op. The only other negative I have is that the detail says that WiFi is available and that water would be provided. Neither were offered. Overall I would recommend this tour as it highlights the major areas of Panama in a short space of time.

Our tour with Carlos was fantastic! We enjoyed every minute of it. He was very accommodating, he is very knowledgeable took his time to explain interesting facts in detail, inserting jokes and good humor along the way. The vehicle was clean and comfortable with a perfectly fitting playlist softly flowing from the speakers. We love the taste of Panama we sampled. Whenever we are back in the area we will look up our new good friend, Carlos!

Don’t use them!! They were at the wrong cruise port said we didn’t specify which port we would be coming in on and to come get us they wanted to charge our party of 7 $100 each to come pick us up. Rip off they stole our money. When I booked this tour months ago I specified pick up location is Carnival Dream port it should not be our responsibility to know which port we come in on this is their business to have this information.

Amazing tour !! Our guide Roger was so informative and we had an amazing time. Great for tourists considering we don’t speak Spanish felt comfortable having Roger guide us through the city. So easy as they pick you up at the hotel and take you to the best sites. I highly recommend . Started off our trip right!

Dennis is a great person and very professional guide. He made our day in Panama City super enjoyable and fun. He is knowledgeable and caring. He made us feel comfortable with him the minute we met. He was able to time a tour so good that we were saw the ship passing through the canal. He accommodated our all wishes and even showed us a local restaurant where we were able to try authentic Panamanian food. He knows Panama’s history and we learned so much from him. We definitely recommend Dennis to all travelers that want to see the main city’s attractions and learn about the country.

We only had 48 hours in Panama City before our return flight to the U.S. We booked a private tour of Panama City with Dennis Roberts, Dennis is all about giving good customer service.. He arrived early to our hotel and since we were already waiting for him in the lobby, off we went. We headed first to the Panama Canal. We were first in line ahead of a large tour. We went to the lower deck to avoid the crowd of the other tour. He has a lot of knowledge about the history of the canal and loves to quiz you on your own knowledge. We saw a couple of cargo ships passing through and it was the highlight of the tour. Then it was off to Casco Viejo for a walking tour. It was great having that one-on-one question and answers with him and lively discussions on history and politics. We visited the Panama sign for a photo op and ended our tour with a 360 scenic view by the water where we discussed how Panama lies north/south. I would highly recommend a tour with Dennis for his knowledge and lively discussions. Thank you Dennis.

Loved this tour and our tour guide Mr. Barnaby.
Even before the tour began, we got a call to confirm our tour and since it was starting at 10 AM they recommended a few options so that we could see the ships crossing the canal instead of waiting around. We opted to start our tour a little later around 11ish. Our tour guide showed up right on time and he was very pleasant and friendly. He was knowledgeable and very engaging. He walked with us showing us different parts of Casco Viejo while telling us the history. He then took us in the car to Causeway Amador, then to the Centennial Bridge, then showing us the Pedro Miguel locks and finally the Miraflores Locks. He waited patiently around with us while we watched the ships going through the canal. Cannot thank Mr. Barnaby enough for making this an unforgettable experience

We highly recommend this tour. Jose was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and his English was very good. Certainly better than my Spanish. Main attractions were Casco Viejo, where we enjoyed a Coca Cola at the only Coca Cola Cafe in the world, and the Canal. It was so nice to be picked up and dropped off right at our hotel. We did 10:00 tour which was perfect to explore the old city and then make it to the Canal in time for a great view of a huge tanker! Thank you Jose!
