Kevin went out of his way to make sure that I made the most of my one day in Panama City. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Panama City and made the walking tour of the old town fascinating. The tour included the other things I wanted to see - the Amador Causeway and of course the canal. He is obviously very experienced and knows how to organize a tour to optimize the group's time.

Jorge was a great guide. He spoke both English and Spanish. I was one of only 3 on the tour (Max 8 I believe). Jorge had the app to know when to expect a ship in the canal so he customized our tour around that and we saw everything else based on getting to the canal dock in time to see a ship pass and see the lock system at work. Quite a spectacle.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Isaac is an excellent guide! It's the perfect introduction to Panama City since it was our first time there. From the tour of the locks, bridges and the canal to the Fish and Butcher's Markets, Amador, and Casco Viejo, it gave us a good idea of the layout of the city and where to first good restaurants and markets. We ended having lunch at the Marina before Isaac drove us back to the hotel. It was a great tour!

Small tour of 3. Guide was on time at hotel. Amazingly she spoke in English and French! She shared information about the areas we traveled through, the history of Panama and the Canal.she was always open to questions. Saw so much and shared a delicious lunch not included. I am glad I spent a day on the tour as I tell people about the things I learned.

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++++

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.
