I've been vacationing in Panama since 2005 and this is by far the best tour I've been on. It was my husband and I and 6 other people, and we all had a blast and thought San Blas was beautiful. We were picked up on time at a hotel in Panama City, the drive was 2.5 hours with a 30 min breakfast stop. The driver, Billy, was very cordial, laughed at our jokes, and told us the history of San Blas. Our tour guides were Abriano and another nice gentleman who spoke English too. The islands were beautiful, the water was great... I just don't think I can describe my experience in writing other than calling it a paradise. We are all very satisfied and will be back to do an overnight tour.
