We booked and paid for a private day tour for Tuesday Aug 6, 2019. My wife (who is Panamanian) and I took the tour to San Blas after seeing the ad stating Private Tour. We thus assumed it would be so. We understood that transportation to San Blas and back to Panama was in a

Response from Mitoursito, Manager at Private Day tour in San Blas Islands
Responded 21 Aug 2019
Mr. Arnold, As explained to your wife, you DID NOT book a PRVIATE TOUR with us, this comment is out of place. You booked a PREMIUM DAY TOUR English speaking guide which the difference in price Is huge. 169USD per people (what you paid in promo) vs. 259USD per people which cost the Private tour. The premium tour, it has many advantages vs. regular plan: Lobster lunch, priority in car seats, Boat for only 8 people vs. regular 15-20 people, but IT DOES NOT INCLUDE A PRIVATE CAR OR A PRIVATE BOAT. This infomation is not new, since our agent informed at the moment of reservation very clear in the email about whats included and what is not, and also the reservation sheet has this same information. However, we ALWAYS TRY TO DO the best for our clients to have a happy experience, and we understand while you were in the tour you wanted a private boat, and we were able to help you with this request for only +60USD additional, which is way less on the price for a Private tour. We are sorry you still are not comfortable, but there is no reason to Provide any type of refund for this tour, since it was all clear since the booking. Thanks again for travelling with us. Marisol

Picked up on time, long long drive out there, but it’s the only way to see San Blas. Will stop on the way out at a nice gas station for your only chance for a restroom, snacks, and supplies. Could possibly change into bathing suit there, if your not already in yours. Then

Driver no-show.
Waited an hour, driver never showed, ended up calling the booking company to cancel. Nothing really more to say.
