Absolutely awesome! If you come to Panama City and want to take it all in, Omar is the guy to show you around. You have to take the Monkey Island tour! Super cool! Definitely recommend.

We visited Panama City in late November 2020 for a medical appointment. Wrote off the trip as a hotel only stay since we only had an afternoon on the last day to do any sightseeing. Wasn’t looking good, but at the last minute we were able to get a hold of Omar at PBA Tours via the Hilton front desk. Omar was able to get us out of the hotel and customize a four-hour tour. Just fantastic what we were able to see in so little time. We walked Casco Viejo (Old Town), visited several monuments around Panama City, drove part of the old Canal Zone, and since the Panama Canal Visitor’s Center was closed due to Covid-19 Omar found a few places along the canal where we were able to watch canal operations. Overall a fantastic experience and thanks to Omar we had an experience that we will remember for a very long time.

My husband and I visited Panama in early March for the first time. LOVED IT!! We set up tours to the canal, Gamboa Rainforest Park/Monkey Island and a really special trip to unique Caribbean islands!! Bob gave us the tour of the canal which was spectacular!! He was very knowledgeable and told us all about the boats passing through the canal- where they came from, how much they had to pay to get through and what they were carrying- so cool!! Our tour was scheduled for two hours but we ended up spending longer with Bob as there was so much to learn! The next day we went to the Gamboa Rainforest park and Monkey Island. Gamboa is beautiful and the sloth sanctuary was the highlight for us!! Omar was very knowledgeable about the monkeys on the islands and we had some unique up close and personal experiences with a little Te-Te monkey!!! Thanks Omar!! The last day we did a special tour of Isla Grande in the Caribbean. Omar was able to take us to the most beautiful islands with spectacular water... we went along with another family and had a BLAST!!! The lunch that was included was fresh and delicious. I cannot recommend Panama and this tour group enough!! If you want an adventure unlike any other tour BOOK IT!!

Our San Blas tour got cancelled so Omar from PBA recommended the Embera tour and I am so glad he did. What an experience! First visiting the falls and having a swim then getting in a dug out canoe to make our way to the village. Omar supports the Embera tribe and is actually a Godfather to some of the children, as such we were fortunate to meet some of the tribe members, including the village doctor. We enjoyed the presentation to learn about how they live, how they cook food, make their baskets, bowls, etc., and then we had a light lunch that they made along with freshest fruit. After, they put on a dance for us and we had opposite to buy some of their lovely crafts. Really a spectacular day! I would highly recommend Omar’s group for all tours and all transfers. He is so personable and professional to deal with, you will feel like you’ve known him forever and you have made a life long connection! Omar made our first visit to Panama very special- the canal closed to the public due to the Corona virus and yet he had special tickets and we were so fortunate to be able to get into the Center to view ships going through the Miraflora locks! It was spectacular to witness such large ships pass through! Our other highlight was his suggestion of island hopping from Isla Grande- amazing teal and turquoise waters! Incredible day swimming and snorkeling and a lovely lunch included. We will recommend Panama to everyone and definitely return- this was one of our best family vacations- and we will absolutely recommend Omar and his wonderful team for all excursions, tours, drive requirements, as he made our trip memorable!

From the moment he picked us up at the airport, Omar was the perfect guide—interesting, knowledgeable, personable and with great attention to detail. We toured Panama City, ferried through the canal, hiked in the rainforest to a waterfall, visited an Embera village, took an aerial tram through the rainforest, boated to monkey island, ate with the locals, lunched at Gamboa resort and much much more. We can’t recommend Omar and PBA tours high enough. Terrific trip!!!
