Driver needed for Panama City

We have traveled and driven in Europe , South America, and Asia extensively. The lack of street signage, and building numbers, make it very difficult here in Panama City. Had a car and turned it in. Even the GPS was of minimal help. We are in the city for a few days before heading out to the beach. DH has difficulty walking, so would like to contact a driver to help with a half to whole day tour. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

Really? That is disappointing.

Good luck finding something that works for you!

Google Jose Saenz golden frog. They were recommended to us a few years ago by a Panama B and B. They were good and reliable. Don't know if they'll be cheaper but worth a try. We also had good luck just hiring one of our taxi drivers for a day. Wanna say that the going price for that was $12 per day, but that was several years ago.

I can highly recommend Andy Tours, +507 66850642.
I live in Panama and have used him when we cannot drive our guests/visitors around. He speaks english.
If you want something cheaper and have some spanish knowledge, use Uber. It works wonderfuly here.

Thanks every one for the help. We have connected with someone, and I will try to remember to report back. Off to Rio Hato and the beach for a week
