Great tour overall. Got to see a lot of the city (or as much as can be expected in 4 hours), and for a first-time visit to Panama, it was a great "orientation." One thing to be careful about, though, is the pick-up time from the airport. It took us over an hour to get through Customs (I am still in shock by how incredibly slooooooowwwwwww the officers were, omg!! they were taking almost 10 minutes per person!). The customs process is not GYG's fault, HOWEVER....they told me that the tour guide would pick us up at 7:30, but told the tour guide we arrive at 6:30 and did not factor customs clearance time in their arrangements with him. We got out at 7:45 and our tour guide had almost left because they had told him to be there at 6:30! So be careful with this when booking and/or making arrangements for pick-up.
I am very pleased with my Layover trip to Panama City from Tocumen Airport, I highly recommended this tour. A driver picked us up at the airport on time, then we had the opportunity to ride around the city, stopping at Miraflores Visitors Center, Amador Causes, Ancient and Modern Sides of the city and finally back to the airport. The driver was very kind with great tour guiding skills.
Rafael was an amazing guide during our layover. Airport pickup and dropoff were a breeze with no issues. He maximized the limited time we had to really give us a taste of the city. He knew all the good spots and was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and canal. I highly recommend this tour and you must go to the Fish Market for lunch!
Such a great tour. I booked last minute but Cesar was wonderful enough to get guide Dan to me in under 30 mins! Loved seeing Panama in this way - fantastic tour, would highly recommmend.
Truly an amazing option for a quick layover in Panama City. Our guide was kind, knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had.
