I'm still amazed and astounded that Panama Travels was able to organize a trip to the Agua Clara locks and Castillo San Lorenzo with only a few hours notice. It is low season and we didn't realize that few of the tours of the Canal area were running daily (and we only had the one day before leaving). We left an email at 3:00 on Sunday and by 5:00 the tour was paid for and confirmed. Thank you so much. Our guide was excellent and his vehicle was comfortable on the ride to the north end of the canal. He didn't rush and answered all of our many questions. I feel like I have gained a lot of information about the canal, as well as about history and politics. We even had a great ferry ride (to access the Castillo) which let us see the new bridge from a unique angle as well as getting a final view of a couple of the ships we had been watching pass through the locks. I would definitely recommend using this travel agency.

This company was able to arrange a tour for two of us the night prior to the tour. It was a Sunday evening and plans for a Monday (last day in Panama city) had not worked out. By email communication, they were able to arrange a one-day tour to visit an Embera village and waterfall. We were picked up on time Monday AM and had a wonderful day with our guide Rueben. The tour was great and he was friendly, knowable, and helpful. I would highly recommend this company when looking for trips and tours out of Panama city.

My wife and I recently returned from Panama and we decide to book a tour of Isla Grande through Keteka tours. Our guide was Miguel Ibarra and I must say he was the best guide EVER. He picked us right on time at our hotel and we headed to Portobelo stopping along the way for snacks and cold drinks. He was so knowledgeable of the area and answered any questions that we had. Once we got to Isla Grande he let us explore and met us right where he said he would be once we returned. Miguel speaks perfect English and was a joy to talk to. Don't have ANY reservations about booking this tour with Miguel. He will make sure you are safe at all times. He even treated us to some fresh cold pineapple on the way back to Panama City. Thank you so much for a wonderful day Miguel.

I travelled to San blas for two nights with Panama travel. It's not for solo travellers, it was all couples on the tour and when I arrived in my dorm I found out that everyone else had paid way less for it and we were all doing the same things!! Try booking through a hostel or just some other way. Not on this site. Other than that, comments on things that the agency is not responsible for (although you do wonder what the hell they're responsible for since you end up paying them so much!): the islands are very pretty but tourism is not sustainable, they are filled with rubbish which is being burned on the island. You will get completely soaked on your journey there, be prepared and wrap your bags. We did not have Mosquito issues and slept quite well. Weather was cloudy and rainy even though it's dry season. Ask for food "a La plancha" or you'll get everything fried, even breakfast!

Thanks for the feedback, not good but we do appreciate it anyway. Helps us prepare people honestly. Couple of things, we actually have quite a few solo travellers on our tours as its a good way to meet people, off course in general there are more couples or friend groups, but that is the same everywhere you go. The trip you did was all inclusive, there is no one else offering this, no one else from anywhere else had the same as you for less money. Yes we do tell you things we are not responsible for we also send you a very frank and honest fact sheet to prepare you before you book. We are responsible for booking your tour with the Gunas and organizing the transport, and accommodation, food and tours, all of which you received without issue. We are not responsible for bad weather in the dry season, we are not responsible for the rubbish problem in San Blas (we try and help by sending water in tanks from the city, to stop plastic water bottle use), we are not responsibly for waves in the sea splashing in the boat (we do however tell everyone it can happen and to protect their stuff in dry bags) We are not responsible for cooking habits in the Guna region or Panama (It is Latin America everything is fried! Drives me crazy too) Not sure what we did wrong here, but onward and upwards. Safe travels. Any future guests read our fact sheet, no one is as honest as we are. But in truth most people go and have a great time, with proper expectations, not many places like this left in the world. Tourism is not sustainable in its current form all over the world. Venice overcrowded, Maldives have huge rubbish islands generated from tourism. The list goes on.Only the traveller can change this...Think about how you effect the places you visit, For example if everyone who visited San Blas took out any rubbish they took in for starters. Do not buy bottled water, use our supply from Panama City, We all have a responsibility to help.
