Kevin is an awesome tour guide, who gives you the real inside scoop on Panama- both the good and the bad. He's knowledge is endless. He can also give you lots of recommendations on anything else you need while in Panama, whether its a restaurant or a place to stay.

We were on a Panama Canal cruise with a one day stop in Panama City. As we are seriously considering retirement in Latin America, Panama has been at the top of our list to persue. We booked a tour with Barefoot Panama stressing that we wanted an Ex Pat point of view, as well someone to show us the sights!! One of our party is in a wheelchair, so vehicle accessability was an issue as well. We got just what we asked for!!!! Kevin set us up with Jeff as our tourguide and he was extremely courteous and helpful, answering all our questions and making suggestions for our lengthier visit to the country at a later date. We fell in love with the Panama we saw, and can't wait to go back to see the rest! Would highly recommend Barefoot Panama for any of your tour needs. We are looking forward to our next trip back to Panama and you can bet Barefoot Panama will be our guide!!!!!!

After much research and reading, we booked the Taste of the Tropics tour. We thought it offered the best option for a small group experience and our wish to see as much of the country in the time we had. We added an extra day in Boquete and 2 nights in Bocas. Much to our surprise and delight we were the only people booked for the entire TOT tour. Others joined us for the Panama Canal and Casco Viejo tour but for the rest of our time we were the only ones on the tour. Kevin proved a most capable guide for the tour on Sunday, but personal emergency called him away at the end of the day. The next day he arrived promptly at the agreed pick-up to introduce us to Jeff who would be our guide and driver for the next 6 days. There are no words to express how much we enjoyed Jeff's company, professionalism, knowledge, and cool actions under pressure (when we were held over at a checkpoint crossing into Chiriqui). By the end of the week he felt like family.

One of the biggest benefits of planning our trip with Barefoot is that we never spent time figuring out how to get from point A to point B - not so easy a task in Panama. On our own, we would have wasted valuable time and made costly mistakes. We found Kevin extremely responsive to all our questions and concerns beforehand and appreciated him coming to personally greet us on the day of our arrival and personally attending to handing us off to Jeff when he was unable to do the cross-country travel with us.

Book with Barefoot Panama --- you will not be sorry!! You can read a day by day trip report on the Panama forum.

Thank you Kevin & Jeff!! We will return - maybe a sailing trip to San Blas next time??

Kevin was by far one of the best tour guides I have ever had! Yes he is an American guide but his knowledge and passion from living in Panama for 10 years is amazing! It was fantastic and he is as flexible and accommodating as he can be! I wish I had more time in Panama City I would have done a tour through Barefoot every day!
