The best tour ever. We love absolutely everything about this trip with Alex. His knowledge of nature and love of Panama is unmatched . He gives you much more than you paying for, and some things are unexpected. Fresh prepared tilapia with local vegetables in the village was great as well. Definitely it was our most interesting day in Panama.... More

I hired Alex to take my TV crew to Bayano Caves tour - he's a highly experienced guide, absolutely professional and very knowledgeable. I read all the reviews before making any decision and trusted that he would be the perfect addition to my team - I have no regrets whatsoever. Next time I am in Panama I will definitely go... More

My wife and I opted for the Waterfall Tour as we enjoy hiking at home and wanted an experience in the rain forest. The day outing was memorable ... In part due to the beauty of the country, but mostly due to the the knowledge, care and intelligence of tourguide Alex. Alex is engaging from the point of pickup.... The... More

Not planning to do any of this. Read tons of reviews about it on our faithful TripAdvisor. We went with it. Priced fair. Ten hour day but so satisfying on many levels. History. Landscape. Wildlife. Aquatic. Local fare food and experience. This is Panama!! Get out of the city and resort and Xplora! Alex. You have changed my life. Your... More

My family (kids ages 13-18) had a great time on this trip. Our guide Alex was friendly, patient and knowledgeable and really hit it off with my boys. It is a long drive to the lake but the trip is totally worth it. The trek inside the cave is not simple - slippery rocks, some areas requiring swimming - but... More

This was my second trip to Panama and I was looking to do something different than the normal tourist attractions, since I had recently seen most of them. I came across reviews on TripAdvisor for this cave tour and thought why not. We were picked up promptly at 7:00 a.m. at our hotel by Alex. The drive to the lake... More

My husband booked a half day Panama Canal and Casco Viejo trip through Xplora and came back super excited. His guide Alex was highly knowledgeable and shared so much of his information that it sounded like my husband had read three books on Panama in that short time. Highly recommendable!

Four of us were on the tour off the Azamara Journey. The tour was to include the Miraflora locks, which we did not want to see again. We surprised Alex with that information and he quickly and expertly figured out something else to do instead. We visited the top of Metropolitan Natural Park and we're glad we did. Large tour...

We had a wonderful tour with Luis! He is knowledgeable, engaging, and friendly. He was more than willing to make adjustments to specific things we wanted to see or do. If you can do a tour with Xplora, do it!
