Thanks to our Panama Roadrunner driver, we had a great trip up to El Valle from Decameron. The twisty narrow road and elevation changes are best enjoyed with a professional driver. Entering town we stopped at the Orchid Conservation where we learned about and saw many different Orchids. We then toured the market, great local produce and crafts. Roadrunner recommended a great local restaurant to eat at, after lunch they took us up to the waterfalls. Vehicle was clean and comfortable, the driver very knowledgeable. Best way to visit El Valle from Decameron

This was my first real visit to Panama. I went through the locks on a cruise a couple of years ago, but did not really see Panama. Neil and Denise were so helpful in suggesting places to go, and things to do. They have listened to their clients and know what their clients enjoyed the most. Roadrunner took us to El Valle for a wonderful day of breath taking views, a remarkable market experience and recommended a cafe for lunch. The waterfall in El Valle was also a must see. What a wonderful day. We took Roadrunner's suggestion for our next day's excursion as well, visiting the Jungleland Safari. A very enjoyable day - we saw 3 kinds of monkeys, an iguana, a beautiful toucan and parrot, not to mention a kayak experience, ending up at a beautiful waterfalls. Neil and Denise were a delight to spend time with. They certainly know the history of Panama and you can tell their clients are important to them. They were so accommodating, chatty and friendly. I would most definitely use Roadrunner services again when I return to Panama. There is still so much to see and do and that I know I will return.

We made the decision to book roadrunner transportation based on the feedback from others. Not wanting to loose any beach time we booked them on our last day. They (Tom) picked us up at 9:30am and we headed to the rainforest to start our day. The drive there was very informative. Tom gave us a lot of information about Panama and was quick to point out all areas of interest. After the rainforest he took us up Antonn hill which was beautiful. A tour through old Panama city and new Panama city were next. we then had lunch on the Causeway which is breath taking and very reasonable. One last tour out to the locks and it was off to the airport. Everything about the day was amazing. We got to see all the things in Panama in one day trip without having to pay the ridiculous fees associated with the tours and never lost any beach time at all. The rest of our group was sitting in the lobby with their bags as we were seeing the sights and sounds of Panama. Tom would stop anytime we asked and took a lot of pictures of us. Thanks to Roadrunner for making our last day a very memorable one.

We planned our Panama trip ourselves but had one worry...transportation. The owners of the Golden Frog steered us to Panama Road Runners. They were excellent. We made all the arrangements by email ahead of time. Prices and schedule all worked out. We had an English speaking driver which was very helpful. We only used the service to take us to our next destination, as we went. We had the same driver the whole time. He was always prompt. We learned much about Panama from him. One of the dates I gave him a time to pick us up that was too early. So we had time to kill. He took us on several side trips including a great little restaurant that we would never have found on our own in Gorgona. The fish we had there was the best of the trip. We had a tour of the restaurant by the owner and learned the history of the area and the place. I am so pleased that we found this service. It was safe, reliable and informative.

Pre-vacation - thank you for email responses to our questions prior to us booking with you. We are glad that we took your advice and booked the jungle land adventure...spending time with captain carl was a fun way to spend the day.

Panama - thank you for meeting us on time, we have booked drivers in other countries that didn't know how to tell time. Thank you for sharing your Panama knowledge and experiences with us, by volunteering information and answering our questions in Canadian English. Thanks for the quick stop at the grocery store to buy coffee ... Seeing the local store was interesting and we got to buy the good coffee at a really reasonable price ... The resort gift shop wanted three times more for an inferior brand and I did not notice any for sale at the airport.

If we return to Panama, we will definitely book with you again.
