It's been just a year since I was in Panama and the passage of time is so telling. The only thing I clearly remember is the trips I made with Barefoot Panama and Kevin and I thought it was worth noting that fact. From the Canal trip, to Monkey Island, to Zip lining, to snorkeling in the Caribbean to ...... More

Great tour of Panama City, the Panama Canal at Miro Flores and the old town. Booked on-line and Kevin the owner followed through at every step. Led the tour and group size was perfect with 5!

Recommend Kevin's one-day city tour if you're just in PC for a short time - as we were. His knowledge of the contemporary history of the city is excellent and facts and figures just trip off his tongue. The tour includes a couple of hours at the miraflores locks on the canal - a highlight! We also did a great... More

We took 3 tours with this company and they were professional to the core. The driver/guide always arrived on time to pick us up at the hotel. The guides were friendly, fun, and most knowledgeable about Panama. They all had a deep sense of pride and admiration for this country. We kept to schedule every time except once when we... More

We brought our family to Panama for the Labor Day weekend - 2 adults and 2 teens. We took the Caribbean Adventure Tour one day, and the Panama Canal & Panama City Tour the next day. Both tours were excellent. Both guides were excellent. Kevin was excellent to deal with and answered all of our questions in advance. I confidently... More

As a well-traveled person, I have learned that in order to truly get the most out of your trip to a foreign country, tours are indispensable. As such, I always venture to include at least one tour during my travels. Based on my research (largely on Trip Advisor), I found Barefoot Panama. I am genuinely happy that I did, as... More

This is an excellent trip. We booked with Kevin a few weeks before the date and he was so helpful in his recommendations for which tour to pick and the pros for each type. We booked the monkey island and Indian village tour. We were picked up promptly and taken to a boat to head right on the canal path... More

I booked a private Tour of Panama City with Barefoot Panama. My contact person was Kevin, who didn't give me always the information I wanted which finally ended in answers like "There are computers in every hotel. . we serve 1 million people per year and no one has ever had a problem.. i ma sure you will be fine"...

I had three “free” days in Panama City and I reserved three different tours with Barefoot. I’d highly recommend them for future travel to this very cool city. My bookings included the day-trip to San Blas, the partial canal cruise and the jungle day-trip. Each lived up and surpassed expectations. San Blas is beautiful, the Canal is remarkable (considering when... More

We LOVED Barefoot Panama's Historic Train, Fort and Canal Tour with Juan as our guide - fantastic! With his extensive knowledge of the Canal, Juan immersed us in history as he wrangled opportunities for us to drive across the new Agua Clara locks then walk across the Gatun Locks! While exploring Fort Sherman, Juan shared stories of playing there as... More
