The views, the nature, the hike, the love….It was wonderful to learn about the history, art and culture of Panama through Inés’ eyes…technically, through her heart. This tour was an epic start to my Friday morning. We met at 7am in order to make it up the hill before the “sol caliente” kicked in. The hike was about 3.5 hours…we walked 12KM on this walk…navigating around to various points of interest enroute to the destination…the top of Ancon hill. An oasis in the city. LOVED Inés's urban expressions tour. Priceless experience!!!

Great Tour. Ines was very personable. She was open to all questions and definitely enjoys sharing her knowledge of Panamanian history. Ancon Hill was closed during our tour but we still learned a lot and got an appreciation for the history and culture which is why I booked this tour.

Awesome tour. Ines really knows her stuff! Very knowledgeable, excellent English, extremely proud of her country. Ancon Hill is a little bit of a climb, be aware of that from the outset--but if you can walk, you'll certainly love the views.
