What a fabulous tour! Alex was a fantastic guide, he is so knowledgeable about Panama's history and has an obvious passion to share what he knows. We thoroughly enjoyed the small group. And with Alex's local knowledge, we got to see not just the highlights of the area, but some of the city's other sights that most tourists never visit. Do yourself a favor if you're in Panama City--skip the big company packaged tours and book this one instead!

Alex was thorough, honest about the history and passionate in his delivery of historical facts. As an aside it seemed like he knew all of the locals in the area. My whole expectation of my visit changed with the information he provided. He’s a National treasure!

Estuvo muy bien el recorrido, fue del tiempo establecido y lleno de buenos datos. El guía muy profesional a pesar de la lluvia que nos tenía ocupados durante todo el rato. Muy recomendable para concoer la historia de Panamá y uno que otro dato curioso, sobre todo si quieres conocer zonas del casco viejo, hacerlo con alguien de la zona, ya que al parecer hacerlo por nuestra cuenta proppia puede resultar algo peligroso.
