Ceasar is very personable and friendly. He took exceptional care of me during my private tour. I learned a lot about the history of Panama and met some interesting people. The island was gorgeous and the history of Portobelo was thought provoking. I will definitely book another tour through Safe Transportation whenever I go back to Panama.
