Kevin was an excellent host and guide. He is very knowledgeable of Panama city and the Canal. The tour was informative, interesting and 100% recommended. We did the private (six people) Canal and City tour and had lunch at a traditional restaurant which was excellent value for money. All of us found the tour to be wonderful. Very much recommended!

Early start, got picked up by the tour guide Gonzo who was very friendly. He was very knowledgeable and had a good rapport with the tribe. Excellent day! Would recommend for anyone travelling by themselves or even in group! Would definitely look them up again!

I had a very short time in Panama City so I booked the Panama City and Canal tour with Barefoot Panama. I was a bit disappointed with the tour. Our guide was nice; however, I was really hoping he would tell us more about the history and culture of Panama City especially in Casca Viejo. We essentially walked around Casca... More

Our experience with Barefoot Panama was exceptional. We booked our tours through the owner, Kevin O'Brien, and he set us up on a day-long jungle tour, walking tour of the "old town," and zip lining. All of the tours were fantastic. Our guide for the jungle tour was fun and knowledgeable. We experienced beautiful boat rides through the canal, got... More

The tour guide was excellent! He knew a lot of the history, the culture but also current events. The tour gave you a really good look at Panama City: the old town, the locks, the Smithsonian nature center, the Frank Gehry-designed museum, etc. The guide was on time and tour lasted about as long as he said it would.

I have watched Kevin's company grow in the last 6 years, but still has the intimacy of a small group. I am always impressed how he makes you feel right at home. He has added several new city tours. I really enjoyed the food tour. We have also gone on the tour out of Santa Catalina. We went out to... More

Everything about this tour was outstanding. Kevin is a fantastic guide, not only for his knowledge, but for his presentation and organization of the activities. We spent the ideal amount of time at the Panama Canal visitor center. The restaurant he takes you to for lunch is a perfect choice with great food, reasonable prices and a fantastic view of... More

I did four different tours with Barefoot during my six weeks trip to Panama. I found their tours a perfect way to explore the country in a not too touristic way. I loved the hike in El Valle. A good workout hiking up the hills and an absolute bliss to enjoy the breathtaking views. Dipping in the waterfall was a... More

We were a multi-generational family on our first visit to Panama, and we contacted Kevin and Barefoot Panama to show us a few of its highlights. We were staying in Casco Viejo, so our first tour was a walking tour of that neighborhood, led by Kevin. He gave a very informal but informative tour, with the unique perspective of an... More
