We hopped on the snorkeling and zip lining tour and it was fantastic. We had a great group and our tour guide Ross was amazing. Ross was so knowledgable and kept the group entertained and informed. The weather was not on our side but it didn't dampen the mood at all! Not many people can say they zip lined over... More

We planned a week in Panama, and decided to take the 8-hour Panama City/Miraflores Locks tour. It was a lovely day, and 10 of us squeezed into a van, and the driver was the tour guide. Despite the cozy/cramped quarters in the van, and the as-usual very crowded city streets, our driver/guide did an excellent job of explaining what we... More

Barefoot Panama lives up to its reputation- it is a wonderful tour company with amazing, passionate people who know their stuff. Kevin (the owner), Ross, and Gonzo are all wonderful people. They were incredibly knowledgeable, smart, thoughtful, professionals who know Panama well. We chose the El Valle, Canal/City, and the Snorkeling tours. We enjoyed each tour and how dedicated each...

Sadly I paid $150.00 to be lumped in with 30 other people, most of whom were not able to hike through a very wet and rocky cave. First off, the owner was not sure about allowing me to travel on this tour as I was flying solo. Looking back now this is kind of funny as there were so many... More

My girlfriend and I landed in Panama and we found out about Barefoot Panama through people we met. We chose the Panama Canal and Fort Lorenzo Historic Tour. It was absolutely amazing and unforgettable. I defiantly recommend it with Barefoot Panama. It was so interesting, fun and our tour guide Ross was so informative, friendly, knowledgeable and other than the... More

I did two tours with Barefoot Panama during my stay in Panama City, the zip lining tour and the canal and city tour. Before I booked and before I arrived, Kevin was very responsive via email. When the weather forecast showed bad weather, Kevin emailed me offering to shuffle the days of my two tours to best suit the weather... More

This tour was excellent. I booked and paid for the tour on line before leaving home. I received an email from Kevin at the time of booking to advise that there was only one other booking for the day I had booked, and were there other dates I could do the tour if necessary. After arriving in Panama City, I... More

My trip to Panama was a reminder that we live in an amazing world. It is filled with incredible flora and fauna and projects completed by ambitious and hardy people. I came to this conclusion after two tours with Barefoot Panama. During our fist day in Panama City, we took the Monkey Island/Indigenous Village tour. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience....
