Kat is a knowledgeable tour guide who goes the extra mile so you see the best of Panama City. She met me at the airport, showed me around the city, the canal and a walking tour of the old town, Casco Viejo. After we said goodbye I felt like I'd already made friends with Panama City and all that remained... More

During a brief stay in Panama I contacted Kats Tours based on their website presentation, testimonials and a recommendation. I worked with Katia arranging a combined city/canal tour and a second one to Fort San Lorenzo and the new locks on the Atlantic side. Given Katia's experience she organized the tours to avoid anticipated delays, traffic and crowds. She's extremely... More

We had an excellent experience with Kat's Tours and highly recommend their services. Katia is knowledgeable, punctual and charming -- a true professional. Katia and I corresponded by email in advance of our arrival while I was planning our itinerary, and Katia gave us great advice. She provided several airport transfers for us, as well as the Panama City and... More

We enjoyed a lovely day that Katia arranged for us: kayaking on Lake Gatun (plenty of wildlife sightings, including tamarin monkeys that jumped into the boat that transported us to the kayaking site) and a tour of the Aguas Claras locks (the new Panama Canal expansion locks that just opened in June, 2016). We got to see a large post-Panamax... More

Spent 3 days with Katia. A great value!! Her timeliness, professionalism and overall knowledge of Panama is outstanding. For a tour guide and transportation, there is no need to shop around. Just book her for a memorable experience on your trip to Panama.

We traveled to Panama this month for a week-long family vacation and to see our son who is a Peace Corp volunter in rural Panama. Having little previous knowledge of the country and a desire to see and do as much as we could in a short time, we were referred by a friend to Katia and Kats Tours. Katia... More
