A very good tour with our very knowledgeable guide Mario. We covered a lot of the city and I learned a lot about Panama history and culture.

Based on other reviews about visits to Miraflores Locks I was bit concerned that we might not get to see much shipping activity but Mario had checked ahead and ensured that our visit coincided with a busy traffic period. Most people know about the Panama Canal but it was good to see the operation up close and to get to know so much about the huge project. Just a pity that the museum was still closed due to Covid restrictions.

We were also shown artisan stalls and shops in Casco Viejo. I'm not a big shopper for holiday souvenirs so I wasn't too interested but there was no pressure on us to buy.

Mario brought us to a popular restaurant that is mostly frequented by locals, and which serves nice reasonably priced Panamanian food. This is what I prefer to do rather than end up in an expensive and touristy place.

Tony is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. He did the perfect planning in order to pick everybody up, drive us to close to the locks, show us the City of Knowledge, get us to the locks and have the opportunity to see a big boat passing the Canal. It was incredible!
After that, we did a bit of driving around the area before we went to the old town, where we were visiting a few very interesting places and ended up having a yummy lunch in the fish market.
All of these activities were accompanied by nice explanations about Panama City, the Canal, the country and the environment.
I certainly recommend this tour!

What a great day filled with valuable information and positive vibes with our guide Mr Ernesto!!! Pick up from hotel was 7:30am and we got to the canals just in time to see the passing of a big ship through the locks. Masks wearing was enforced and everyone compiles at all time which made me feel really comfortable. The locks are ingenious engineering with Ernesto present to give us great info. FYI the museum at the canal is not open currently (Covid)but there is a museum in Casco Viejo (old town) that is a definite for $15!!!! We got a great overview of all the main tourist spots which we ended by going to the fish market and had some yummy food. Amazing value. Shout out to Mr Ernesto from your Guyanese ppl!!!

Ernesto was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable and made our small 6 person group feel like family that came in to town, not just tourists. He enjoyed sharing his life experiences, history, (and amazing off the beaten path favorite beach restaurant), and we learned and laughted together all morning. I would recommend him to anyone! Thank you Ernesto for being one of the highlights of our vacation to your beautiful country.

Tony was wonderful! He was kind, knowledgeable, and extremely coordinated. He tracked the canal’s schedule of activity and set up our tour so we would not be waiting around for the action. He took us to a delicious place next to the fish market/docks where we enjoyed a great lunch. We walked through Old Town where he was a wealth of information and explained in depth and answered all our questions. While taking us back to the hotel, we discussed restaurants and other activities. He recommended (and made our reservations for us) “Restaurante Tinajas” that Friday night since they had a band and show with dancers in the most beautiful, authentic dresses and headpieces. If I could rate Tony’s tour more stars I would. You will not regret taking it.

A great tour requires a great guide like Tony. Early pickup and we are off to Miraflores locks with our required masks. A small group is the best way for me to travel. Arriving around 9ish when traffic is heavy at the locks, we watched ships pass through the locks efficiently like clockwork. Considering that the canal opened in 1914, one can but not marvel at the brilliant engineering. I took the full canal trip a few days later, and it was awesome. It took many years to build, and many lives were lost in the process. Tony knows his history, and I learned a lot. The museum was closed at the time, just a quick glance in passing.

We left for The Old Town, driving passed places of importance. A stop was made at the place of the 150th year dedication to the Chinese presence. We also saw a small nocturnal monkey. Next a stop at the causeway harbor and duty-free shop

The last stops were at the historical Iglesia San Jose in Old Town and the wharf for sightseeing and picking up souvenirs. Tony was great at pointing at important places, which are part of the UNESCO's Heritage site.

Being the only one wanting lunch aside from Tony, he drove us to a local restaurant by the fish market after dropping the others off. We had a great lunch with Scampi, the Panamanian version. I had deep-fried yucca and a small salad. The name is La Promesa and totally local. I was the only gringo there. Don't miss it!

This was a FANTASTIC tour. Tony is an excellent guide. He is so knowledgable and friendly. He answered all of our questions before we even thought to ask them. He truly takes customer service to the next level, and went above any beyond showing us all the best spots in Panama City, and explaining the history along the way. He was very punctual and easy to communicate with. He took us to more local places to help us truly experience Panama City. He gave us excellent tips (told us about the best view in Panama City), and even offered to help coordinate another tour for us (we wanted to go to San Blas Islands). Both tours were exceptional. We were very impressed by his customer service, willingness to help us solve any problems that came up, and assist with the language barrier we were experiencing on San Blas. I would recommend his tours/support to anyone travelling to Panama. An honest and lovely person - was truly a pleasure meeting Tony! The best tour guide we’ve ever had.

I took the Panama Canal/City tour with Tony and he was great. He is very knowledgeable about the Canal operations and gave us plenty of time to see the other sights in Panama City. He has a wealth on information on all aspects of life in the City and that added to the enjoyment of the tour. He was also very accommodating to the needs of our group and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Highly recommend!

Our family of 8 recently spent a day with Tony visiting the highlights of Panama city. Tony was punctual, spoke very good English, was flexible, and knows and loves the city which made the day very informative and enjoyable. Would highly recommend contacting Tony if you're looking for any assistance while visiting Panama. Thank you Tony for all your help this past couple of weeks.
