We had a very mediocre experience with the Panama City/Canal full day tour. All of our upfront communication was very prompt and professional. Our driver arrived on time and was very nice and professional, however he really did not tell us much without our prompting him about the local culture, places, etc. Basically he was just a driver, not a...

Four of us spent 10 to 20 Feb 2015 in Panama City, we used Isthmus travel extensively. Roberto Valencia was extremely supportive, knowledgeable, punctual, basically everything you expect from a first class guide. The vehicle was new, clean, air conditioned; given the traffic in Panama City it was amazing to watch Robert maneuver through the maze. I have driven in... More

Panama Canal cruise, my wife and her sister had lived in Panama many years ago, and we needed a car and driver to help us find the old sights. Julie was exceptional. She was informative, knowledgeable, spoke fluent english, and made the event very enjoyable. She, or any of her staff, will provide you with a great experience.

During our South America cruise we stopped in Panama, where we spent one day with Kenneth from Isthmus Travel in Panama City and the Canal. It was a perfect day! Kenneth was absolutely nice and very well informed about the country and the Canal. We would immediately book him again!! Thank you so much! Great hospitality!

When I planned a trip to Panama I had contacted a few travel companies for day tours from Panama City. One company stood out during the planning process - Isthmus Travel. Juie replied to emails quickly, always answered my questions and advised me about the differences between various sights and activities. Isthmus Travel tailors trips based on their customers needs...

We contact Julie by email and worked out a tour of Panama City. She was tremendously professional. She set us up with a wonderful tour guide named Nicholas. He was very well informed and spoke great English. He showed us the sights and we even went to dinner with him at a great place that he recommended. He got us... More

We were able to customize our tour to see what we had time for. Our tour guide, Nicholas, arrived on time, dressed nicely and in a clean, air conditioned vehicle. He was fun... More

Found Isthmus Travel on line and contacted them by email. They were immediately responsive and organized a personal full day tour of la ciudad viejo, Casco Antinguo, the Miraflores locks, and the three islas, where we had lunch. Our guide, Nelson, was both very personable and highly knowledgeable. He had excellent English, although we chose to do most of the... More

Our initial arrangements were made via email and included pick up from the airport, a rain forest tour, city tours, a trip to the village of a Panamanian indigenous tribe and dinner show of traditional Panamanian dancing. I was very pleased by the... More

Isthmus Travel is a great travel company. It is a small but extremely flexible company, offering a wide range of trips and services. All our encounters were exceptionally satisfying, but one stood out: we took a day trip to Portobello organized by Isthmus Travel. The trip had all the elements worked out perfectly: a very informed guide, comfortable transportation, leisurely... More
