We had a great time taking our 14-year old grandson to see Fort San Lorenzo and Colon. The three of us were the only ones on the tour that day so we had our tour guide's undivided attention. Both guides (husband and wife) were very personable and knowledgeable about the area. They really enjoy the area and it shows! We had a great time at the fort, and stopping to take pictures of howler monkeys on our drive. The train ride from Colon to Panama City was nice and quiet with lovely views along the way. We were provided drinks on the mini van and snacks and drinks for the train ride. Our tour guides were waiting to welcome us back to Panama City when we got off the train and took us back to our hotel for drop off. We really enjoyed our day.

We took the afternoon tour and very much enjoyed the tour of Fort Lorenzo, the drive and walk through Colon and the train ride back to Panama City. Stephanie and her husband picked us up at our hotel on time. They both speak English, Spanish and French so there was no problem with our multicultural tour group. They were both very friendly and knowledgeable and engaged all our questions promptly. The tour was as advertised. It is highly recommended.

We chose the ocean to ocean tour with mini van out and train back. Departing at 12.30 and getting back at approx 18.30. You see the lush forests, the San Lorenzo fortress, Colon and then train back along the canal. Free drinks in the van and on the train you get a snack box. We had a really nice day with Stephanie and her husband (we’re very sorry, but we have forgotten your name) who were both excellent guides, very knowledgeable and great company. Highly recommendable. They really love Panama and made this, our first day in Panama, very special. Thank you guys!
