After reading many reviews, I was confused about the "Indian Village" and monkey island in Lake Gatun tours, but we chose this company and are so glad we did. There are several "Indian Villages." Barefoot Panama takes you to a very simple but non-touristy village of 45 families. The indigenous people actually live in this village and invite these small... More

We did the city tour with Ross. Ross was excellent tour guide who spoke both English and Spanish. He was excellent driver and shared so many interesting facts about the history of Panama City and the Canal. We started the day going to Panama Canal observation center with educational video and museum. This is a must if visiting Panama City.... More

We booked this tour online and our guide Gonzo was VERY prompt on picking us up at our hotel. He was like 15 mins early so we really couldn't get any breakfast beforehand, but we asked and eventually we got something along the way picking up other members for the tour. Gonzo is super friendly and knowledgeable. Our group consisted... More

Took the tour on Jan 18 with Ross as our guide. He was pleasant, personable, knowledgeable and very accommodating and obviously enjoys what he's doing. We never felt rushed and he encouraged any and all questions and answered them thoroughly and honestly. There were 9 people on our tour, but it was a good, sociable group which made it even... More

My husband and I were in Panama this past summer, our main goal being to see the Panama Canal. Well, Kevin and his crew came through with flying colors! We saw the canal from every angle and so much more. Our first day, Kevin picked us up from our hotel and gave us a tour of the city. Although not... More

Awesome!!! If you are even thinking about taking this tour do yourself a favor and just book it!!! I attended with 3 other friends and will admit I was a bit skeptical as monkeys are smart animals and I thought after a while they must almost be trained that when they see a boat run out and get some food....

Coffe and chocolate tasting to Beer tasting to ceviche tasting to rum tasting all an experience we would have never done on our own. Kevin recommended a fabulous dinner location and truly was a decadent experience. We are pleased he introduced us to a... More

A punctual hotel pick up to start the day, with a very knowledgeable guide. A visit to Miraflores was interesting and a good amount of time there was allowed. Loved the walking tour and up close to see the architecture of the buildings at Casco Viejo. It was a leisurely walk with information provided along the way. My bookings for... More

Kevin was an excellent host and guide. He is very knowledgeable of Panama city and the Canal. The tour was informative, interesting and 100% recommended. We did the private (six people) Canal and City tour and had lunch at a traditional restaurant which was excellent value for money. All of us found the tour to be wonderful. Very much recommended!
