From the very first email I received from Braint or Lita after my first inquiry, our trip to Panama exceeded our expectations. We have a son spending 3 1/2 months in Panama and wanted to visit him and take him on our Spring break vacation. From the start, Braint and Lita were accommodating, friendly and had figured out how important family time was for us and how to help make our trip stress free and adventurous. We like to be outdoors and like adventures - this 9 day trip met all our needs. One thing that has not been mentioned often in the reviews is how this felt like a very private trip. We were all by ourselves in the caves or at the waterfalls or at the organic farm...there were no groups to manage or wait for...there were no lines of tourists. We felt as though we learned about Panama in a very intimate way and even though there was more driving then we would have liked, non of us would have cut any part of the trip out...each part told a story of this lovely country. At nearly every point of the trip Braint went above and beyond our expectations to provide us with insights few travelers ever get. Lita even made us dinner reservations on our last night and drove our son back out to his host family the next morning, another example of above and beyond expectations, just to help insure a first rate experience. Briant, our guide, was a great role model for our teenagers, he changed careers some years ago to devote his career to tourism and it is clear that he has the passion and the enthusiasm that will make him successful. I believe that our children could tell that following a passion, working hard to build relationships with friendly, kind and passionate people, being willing to take feedback, working hard and doing what one loves is the best choice when looking for careers. We felt lucky and honored to visit Panama with such a great guide.
