Sorhay is an amazing woman. She was prompt, friendly and just all around amazing!! Very knowledgeable about Panama and made us feel like family. She could see what an amazing time I was having and made sure I got my fill. I can't thank her enough for the wonderful memories! At least this was one thing that we could still do with everything closed because of the virus. Sorhay was wonderful and having a private tour made it even better!! Best tour I have ever booked!!!

My dear Mr Donald and Mrs Trish I am happy that you were able to see a bit of Panama during these days of uncertainty. Lucky me to be with a respiratory specialist for over 25 years and a nurse during this tour in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The universe always conspire in my favor. You did enjoy those tamarin monkeys like no one else Mrs Trish, uh!... and those cuties were around minding their business for a loooong time... I am sure you could've stay there all day long but at some point we had to go... lol... At least, you had the chance to enjoy the last tour of the month before Panama shut down the airport and the country was put in quarantine. Both of you were simply the kind of relaxed, easy going and well versed people we enjoy having on our private experiences. Sorry I could't get you chocolates because everything was closed. I am sure you are enjoying your mountains in NV and showing your grandkids the bunch of pictures wuth the monkeys. It was an honor to serve you and you may need to come back to see the Real Panama at a different time when the world goes back to normal. Hugs from Panama Sorhay

The Monkey Island Tour was the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Alex, was fantastic. He picked us up at the hotel right on time. He was extremely knowledgeable about Panama and the animals we were going to see. We saw not only the monkeys but birds, iguanas,a crocodile, a porcupine and my personal favorite, a sloth hanging from a tree as we left the lake. All in all a fabulous tour! I highly recommend this tour.

Dear guests Thanks very much for your kind words about my Alex. I am extremely happy to read these lines that confirm, one more time, that Alex is awesome. It is not easy to find great guides and Alex is among them. Alex is normally at the pick up location half an hour earlier (just in case traffic gets crazy as usual in Pamama). You picked one of the best experiences that really showcase what Panama is all about: our tropical rainforest, our wildlife and the Panama Canal. Again a million 345,231 Gracias from Panama and Alex send his regards. We wish for you many more safe trips, love and health. Sorhay

We just spent a fabulous week in Panama with friends. The highlight of our trip was the time we spent with Sorhay! She is the ultimate tour guide! From the Panama Canal to San Blas Island to the Embera village...every day was an adventure! She anticipated our every need. When we left early one morning she brought us fresh croissants and empanadas from the bakery. She was funny, warm, knowledgeable, and just a pleasure to be around. She even spent additional time with us showing us the city night life. Our visit was definitely enhanced because of her!

My dear Mr Josh You and your group planned to come to Panama 2 years ago and the plans didn't work out due to weather in NY. Finally, after many many email exchanges, the Panama Trip fell through and the 11 of you were here. Lovely lovely group of friends. Good vibes. So much wisdom in one van. All the experiences we organised worked for the group and you guys had me up until midnight ... ayayayayyy... You are all appreciated and missed. I think I gain 2 or 3 pounds hanging out with you guys. Todá Rabá. I am very grateful you've chose us to show you our Panama. Sorhay

We were 11people on tour with Sorhay We couldn’t have been done happier with her and her itinerary. She was scrupulously honest, knowledgeable and most importantly caring. I have been on many trips and tours, this was by far the most enjoyable I would highly recommend her for the real Panamanian experience

My dear Dr. Steve and Mrs Jackie Only you and your wife had a Private tour. The monkeys didn't dissapoint and showed up to make you smile like little kids. Thankfully Mrs Jackie recup from her short illness and didnt miss out on this experience. I should have recorded the valuable life lessons you were giving me from the back seat. It was beautiful to have an open conversation with you and Mrs Jackie, to hear about your love story, about your grandkids and what is important while we are on this earth. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You, Thank you, Thank you for trusting your vacation time to us. A warm hug from Panama Sorhay
