I was a bit skeptical at our guide at first since Ross is not born and raised in Panama, but right away he proved to be very well-versed in all aspects of Panama. He has studied up on the historical and cultural aspects of Panama, and since he has lived in Panama a number of years, he takes pride in being a resident of Panama and keeps up with current issues. He even goes the extra mile to promote local Panamanian growers and to have visitors try the best Panamanian products out there.
When we walked into the meeting place, we saw that Ross had already set up our table with local chocolate and coffee. As we tasted the products, we were introduced to the locally produced items. Ross was very informative about other flavors and types of products made by the same companies. Our next stop was the brewery to sample several types of beers. The many samples placed in small glassware were arranged on a wooden ship. It was very original and appropriate for an old port town feel. We chose our favorite and toasted to a start of a wonderful visit. Next, we talked about Panama's old towns and pirates as we strolled to our next destination and savored different types of fresh ceviche. Our last stop was the top floor of a restaurant which is known for its changing displays of local art work. With our guide's many years of connections, we were led to a prime spot at an open air bar with a gorgeous view of the city!
Amazing taste of Old Town Casco Viejo with an experienced guide who takes care of all of the details so you can feel free to take in the unique experiences. An excellent guide and a wonderful intro to Panama. Definitely recommend!
Ross is an expert in and out of the city and during our tour he was a wonderful resource. He was able to steer us away from what could have been a big disappointment involving a long drive and lots of effort. He knew exactly where we should go to find what we were looking for and pointed us in the right direction. Due to his guidance, we were able to do everything and see everything we wanted in just a few days including the highlights of seeing a mother and baby sloth just a meter away in their natural habitat as well as a baby and mama whale. There were even extras along the way as we had not planned to go to an almost secluded beach and walk around a very peaceful and charming Contadora Island. It was almost as if we had reserved the island for ourselves!
