Both guides were nice, competent, interesting and knew a lot about their country history and politics and economics
Ancon was wonderful!

Their guide "Ivan" was excellent and had knowledge way beyond our expectations. Wendy, the church tour guide, was more of the same. We only had 2 minor transport issues on the entire 9 day trip. One was having to stop for gas and the gas station attendant instructed us to get out of the van and stand by the pump while fueling. We should not have been getting gas on our time in the first place and it was disconcerting to get out of the van under his instruction. Another was our pickup from one hotel 30 minutes late.

We were picked up at the airport by Ancon staff, delivered to our hotel after an informative, engaging discussion along the route. Each of the drivers that we utilized were knowledgeable, spoke English (which helps as we are American), proud to share information about their country and prompt. We really appreciated when our driver dropped us in Casco Viejo and clearly pointed where to venture and where NOT to venture safely. We had a wonderful day exploring and he was waiting as planned to take us back to Panama City. Highly recommend this group.

Panama and the canal locks

Our Ancon tour guides were both well versed in the subject matter of their individual tours. But Sr. Hernan Arauz was possibly the most interesting tour guide we have ever encountered. His knowledge of the animals and birds of the Panamanian jungle was exceptional. His knowledge of the history of the country is as complete as anyone we have had the pleasure of talking to. He is someone that I will truly recommend personally to whomever asks me about this Panamanian experience.
