About The Real Panama Trs
Panama is officially reopening and mobility restrictions will no longer be in place, therefore, WE ARE READY and will be offering our awesome experiences again, starting March 25th, 2021. We are excited! We can do our thing and incorporate those key elements that make our tours memorable: the contact with real panamanians of different backgrounds, the handshakes of my people, the hugs of our Embera babies and the smiles and laughs throughout the day. It is the right time to get back in business and create happy memories for you and your loved ones. Are you ready?

A wonderful experience! I felt like I truly experienced Panama. Loved it! Enjoyed riding through the Panama Canal and Monkey Island. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. The "homemade" authentic lunch at the boathouse was excellent!

My husband and I spent two full days exploring this beautiful country with Sorhay and The Real Panama Tours. I cannot say enough positive things about our experience. Sorhay is amazing. Seriously. She is kind, smart, fun, informative, and engaging. She will ensure you have an authentic, safe adventure. After only a short time with us she understood us and our personalities completely. She tailored our experiences very specifically and personally to us. Simply trust her and she will lead you on foot, by car, by boat, or by horseback to the very best days you can imagine in Panama. I'm very grateful we met her!

Awwww My dear Mrs Tasha. Gracias, Gracias, Gracias. You and Mr. Miguel were fun, easy to talk to, 2 completely different personalities and yet, you compromise so we could please both of you. Mr. Miguel’s pic is one the funniest I have taken during the horse back riding on the river and it will remain on my favorites. I’ll tell you, getting around my tiny undeveloped countryside with individuals that have experienced the world like you guys, seeing gorillas in Ruanda, swimming with shark whales and more was intimidating at first but Panama has its own little magic and our white faced capuchins really were awesome around you guys and we hot lucky to see that mama with the baby in the back that melted our hearts. Hope you enjoy your panamanian delicious bombones of chocolate we left at your hotel and that we stay in touch to know how the cuties Karoline and Katie are doing and to see another pic of Lilly as she grows. A hug for Mr. Miguel and remind him that sloths are real, not a remote control thing we put on trees (even though we couldn’t see one up close and only 2 curled on tree forks). I wish you guys the best life has to offer. My team: Jainer, Chino panti, Roberto and myself were honored and happy to have you. Sorhay

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!
