Here’s another review posted by Keith on TripAdvisor:

I highly recommend Panama Relocation Tours to anyone considering a move to Panama. It is truly an all inclusive tour. The guides are awesome. You’ll get a great overview of what’s available throughout the country. I personally found the food to be excellent. I’m a picky eater but cleaned my plate every time. I find Panamanian food in general to be very good.

While traveling on the tour, you won’t just be sitting on a bus. You’ll be flooded with useful information. PRT does not waste your time. Rather, they make very efficient use of it.

Accommodations during the tour are much better than average. I did have a “cold” shower one night. It was nice to learn that a cold shower in Panama isn’t really cold.

The 6 day tour is geared toward those open to living in any of the best places across the country. If you have a specific area, climate, town, city, etc. you are interested in, PRT also offers private tours that will focus on pretty much anything you wish.

While on the tour, I spoke with one person who had been on a tour with one of PRT’s competitors who said PRT’s tour was better by far.

When I booked the tour, my plan was to retire in 5 years. By the end of the tour, I was telling myself to go back to the US and pull all the stops to make it happen as soon as possible. I am now retiring and moving to Panama 5 years ahead of schedule… and Panama Relocation Tours has provided me with All the information I need to make it happen. And it doesn’t end there. If you take the tour, PRT is with you even after you make the move. They are an ongoing resource for help with pretty much anything related to moving to or LIVING in Panama, and it’s all available to any tour member at absolutely no cost.

If you’re considering a move to Panama, a tour with Panama Relocation Tours is a must.
