    My guide was so nice and I got to learn so much about Panama. Edwado (May be spelled wrong) went above and beyond his job to make the tour very enjoyable. I was going to buy water at museum but he said it was expensive and he would take me to a store. Got my water for 80 cents This was just one of the extras he did. I would recommend this tour
