Great to do near the beginning of your trip
Nick was very knowledgeable, customized the tour to our needs, supported local by bringing us to local markets and restaurants, and gave us tons of helpful tips and recommendations.

If you are a history buff, Nick will have more than enough info for you! He also got us in a little early at our panama canal visit. This tour started at 8am and finished around 2:30pm, which was the perfect length in our opinion. If you lingered more at some stops, you could definitely stretch it, though.

Panama City & Canal Tour was excellent
Sep 2021
Panama City & Canal Tour. I just had the most impressive tour of Panama City (the canal, the site of the first city, Casco Viejo, Amador Causeway, and local arts and crafts) provided by Barefoot Panama Tours. The guide, Gonzo, spoke excellent English and was exceptionally knowledgeable, pleasant, and accommodating. A great way to spend a full day in Panama City.

Great tours / guides reasonably priced
May 2021 • Friends
Gonzo our tour guide was amazing. His excellent commentary really made the trip. And he was able to accommodate / make it easier for my handicapped mom for the trip. If you want an excellent tour of Panama - make sure you request Gonzo!! Also the Kevin was able to very efficiently and in short notice book everything. Thanks everyone!

Only constructive feedback for Barefoot is that there are places closed because of Covid and we were finding out real time in the trip instead of being given a heads up. Would recommend you call out in the website before booking what places are closed in the tour currently because of the pandemic.

One of the best tours out there!
Dec 2020
I did the canal and city tour with Gonzo one day before lockdown was back on and it was wonderful. The Miraflores visitor center was closed, so he got creative and took me on a drive through the area to get a few different vantage points of the locks and canal. The city tour covered a lot, I got to see the skyline from one of the best vantage points across the water, and the Casco Viejo portion was super interesting: he seemingly knows the history behind every building in the quarter, and his storytelling skills are superb. Gonzo was one of the best tour guides I've ever met, on time and professional, super friendly and entertaining, and he made sure that I saw the best of Panama City despite the rapidly changing availability of many sites.

I lived in Casco for 10 years.. and I still need more time there.. that is why we end the tour there and give you the option to stay.. so, it cant be to short, you just chose to leave. We do a 1 hour walking to ur to get you orientated.. after the tour, stay.. shop, visit museums, bars, rooof tops, dinner, sunset.. do all the things that a group tour wouldnt be able to do on such a complete city tour like the one we offer! easy

Professional tour company
They pick you up from the hotel on time. Shaun was our guide and driver. He explained all aspects of miraflores panama canal, the causeway where we had lunch. He took us to the Smithsonian wild life reserve. Tickets are included. The walking trip in casco viejo was the last trip. He didnt rush anyone. Though his passion for geisha coffee is quite interesting.

Great Tour!
May 2019
I took the Panama City tour and Gonzo was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our many questions. The place we stopped at for lunch was delicious. The Nature Center and the sloths there were the highlight. I enjoyed all of the stops and learning some of the history of Panama. For me the only minus was that I would have wanted to stay longer at the Panama canal. Ninety minutes is not enough time to go through the entire exhibit and see a ship go through the locks. It's likely you could do one but not the other. If you're super interested in the canal like I was, I would recommend going on your own rather than part of the tour or plan on going back.

Great 2nd trip to Panama with Barefoot Panama
Jan 2020
We visited Colon, Panama on a Cruise January 1, 2020. We used Barefoot Panama in the past and contacted Kevin again before this visit. They are an amazing company...great communication, great service. Last year we did the Locks (Panama Canal) and eco tour. This year we decided to go to Panama City. Juan was our tour guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Panama, the canal, and the areas we traveled through. He got out, walked around, took pictures and he was able to answer all the questions we had. If you are going to Panama, use this company!! Great overall experience A++++

Another Great tour with Barefoot Panama!
Jan 2020
We visited Panama for the 2nd time on Jan. 1, 2020. Last year we opted for the Canal tour and locks, so this year we wanted to go to Panama City and see that area. From the 1st email to Kevin, to the drop off back at our ship, Barefoot Panama was amazing!! Great communication, great explanation of their offerings, and a fantastic tour. Our guide this time was Juan and he was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Panama, of the Canal, of the city, and neighboring countries. He was able to explain things in great detail and allowed us several stops to take photos. If you are going to Panama, I highly suggest you contact Barefoot Panama. They are awesome!
