I booked two trips with Xplora, the Cave Exploration Tour and the Caribbean Island Experience. I had a fantastic time on both trips - they were both better than I expected them to be, though my favorite has to be the cave. It was my first time doing any sort of caving, and the description sounded a bit daunting -... More

Booking with Esther was easy and she was prompt in confirming the dates we selected and processing payment was a breeze. The tour started with prompt pick up by alex, and we were off. I would say Alex is definitely very knowledgeable about all of the areas we visited, and he is passionate about it as well. You can tell... More

My family of 5 took two day trips with our guide Briant. Super friendly service from Esther to book at their office. I don't know where else you can get a tour guide that is a biologist. Briant is so knowledgeable about all the wildlife and plants. He personalized the trip, knowing my girls love frogs, and taught us so... More

We did the Lake Bayano Cave Exploration tour and it was our favorite tour during our trip! Our guide, Alex, was extremely knowledgeable and talked to us about everything from farming in Panama to local wildlife. The cave exploration was wonderful and unlike anything we'd done before. We were accompanied by a local who owns the land and he and... More

I am late on this review but PLEASE do yourself a favor if you are the mildest bit of the outdoors-y type and book with Xplora Panama. My fiance and I did the waterfall hike, and booking was a breeze. We also appreciated that transport from our hotel was included. During our hike it was very obvious that Alex has... More

We were in Panama City for a wedding. After a few days of doing my own research and acting as Social Secretary for our group of two, I thought it would be good to give a local a try. The amount of information and expertise that the guide, the well-known Alex had, takes years to acquire and then there is... More

We just returned from our Caribbean experience day trip to the Caribbean. We had read a lot about our guide Alex on the internet and lucky for us it was all true. He was very knowledgeable in all areas but excelled in Panamian history and wildlife. The trip was very informative but relaxing as we spend hours swimming and snorkeling.... More

Planning a 10 day vacation with teenagers can be tricky, but Esther and Alex created an itinerary and experiences that the kids not only loved, but haven't stopped talking about. Ester was so quick with her responses and super attentive to any questions or concerns we expressed regarding hotels, activities, meals and the entire planning process. She made this an... More

My wife and I just returned from an eight-day vacation in Panama with Xplora, arranged just days before we flew. Their professionalism and thoughtfulness were impressive. We explained in advance that we have daunting, complex, medically-driven dietary requirements that might preclude their providing the meals they were planning. They were not fazed, and in fact went to surprising lengths to... More

Thank you! To me it felt more like traveling in my country with fellow scientists than guiding a tour. I also enjoyed our conversations about culture and science very much. We are very happy that you had a great vacation with us. More
