"The world is much BIGGER and more beautiful than one can read in books or see in movies. GO ACROSS TRAVEL opened my eyes to this world. I started out thinking our cultures would be so different. In the process I realized we are all so similar."

I was one of the first participants on the Go Across Travel Panamá youth groups. I saw some beautiful beaches and tried surfing which I LOVED! Our small group was so excited to be a part of it all. I liked that It's not a tour company but almost like a vision quest.....at times, I was so excited and then a bit scared of staying in an unfamiliar village with a dirt floor and roosters and geckos running around! We moved from one place in Panama to the next effortlessly. There is NO WAY I could have created those connections and introduction to the Panamanian people if I would have gone on my own. Once I arrived home and I started processing what we did and really saw, I was in awe. I will cherish the time in Panamá forever. I feel very blessed to have been able to take part in this experience!Quebec City, Canada
My husband and I had a great private tour with Tom enjoying the old city of Panama. Besides his knowledge of the city and historical stories, we most enjoyed conversing with Tom regarding his efforts to give youth more engaging experiences in order to improve their lives. Thank you for a memorable trip!Ontario, Canada
Skye, Tom, and the Go Across Travel team are amazing. Their genuine enthusiasm of Panamá and living as a global citizen is contagious. I had a FANTASTIC time visiting the Embera village, and stand up paddle boarding on a perfect, calm ocean bay! Helping teach English to children in the community village was also a highlight of my time in Panamá. I highly recommend the longer 12-day programs. It's an enriching, eye-opening, beautiful experience. A chance of a lifetime!Denver, Colorado
I was so lucky to be part of the Go Across Travel adventure, joining them on a trip to Panama this year ( 2018 ). I had some expectations before the trip, but the reality of it gave me so much much more than I could have ever wished. I received connections with local people in Panama, sharing in their lives for a while and I really saw everything from another perspective. It was such a honour and an amazing experience. You will find out there that life is not just about money, a great job and material things. People can be happy just to be with each other and surrouded by nature. I wish everybody had this amazing opportunity to go with Go Across Travel to Panama, and see this beautiful part of the world and local people there!Canmore, Canada
Thanks so much for a fantastic day yesterday. It was an amazing experience! We appreciated your excellent guide services and would be happy to recommend you to other travelers.
In one word impressive! We were looking for someone to assist us in planning our Panama trip, I selected GoAcrossTravel based on their mission to facilitate a cultural education. In short, we wanted more than just fun in the sun. Our trip to Panama was our first to Latin America, for vacation, exploring and a Latin America cross culture experience. Tom met all of our expectations and made the trip easy from the first phone call to departing Panama. He was awesome at helping us select our excursion plans by offering a robust list of sightseeing options, arranged special meetings, and assisted with our travel and lodging arrangements. Once on the ground he was quick to change and adjust our itinerary based on our preferences and remained with us through out the stay offering translator services and a wealth of knowledge. We visited an native village in the rain forest, a local government school, the Panama Pacifica economic project, met with other expats living their for cocktails, visited the canal museum and of course a ship ride down the canal. Tom also showed us around Panama City and we ate at some really neat restaurants. Truly a great trip and Tom and Go Across Travel was a first class - visitor oriented operation. I highly recommend Go Across Travel, as a matter of fact based on our trip experience this year we plan to return again in the spring for a 30-day stay. I am sure you will find Tom easy to work with, accommodating and he will go the extra mile to make you and your class trip a cultural experience you and your students or anyone for that matter would enjoy!United States
