What to expect
Start your sightseeing tour of Panama City and the Panama Canal with pickup from your hotel. Listen as your informative guide shares fascinating facts about the capital’s modern and historic districts and points out areas of interest during a driving tour. Venture into Casco Viejo (aka Casco Antiguo) — Panama City’s Old Quarter —  and admire the 17th-century Spanish colonial architecture lining cobblestone streets and public parks. Your guide stops at France Plaza, Iglesia de San Jose (Church of San Jose), the Flat Arch and the Metropolitan Cathedral as well as Paseo Las Bovedas, a stone promenade and seawall now home to shops and cafes.  View typical French architectural style of colonial homes in the French Quarter en route to the Panama Canal, whose surrounding landmarks include the Palacio de las Garzas (the President of Panama's official office), the enchanted Balboa area and the Panama Canal Administration Building. Enjoy photo ops of the canal itself, and discover the engineering feats of the Panama Canal locks that enable efficient passage between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Your tour includes admission to the Miraflores Visitors Center, which features several viewing platforms and an interactive museum. If time allows, you can watch vessels as they travel through Miraflores, one of the canal’s three lock systems. Continue on to the Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador), a manmade network of four small islands near the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. Amid the palm trees and other tropical flora, soak up breathtaking views of both the Panama Canal and the Panama City skyline before return transport to your hotel.

Great Tour
Sep 2019
This was the best tour you can take if you are a first-timer in Panam City, we saw so much. The tour guide (Jasmine), was friendly, informative and fun. Sometimes tour guides can be boring, but not her. The whole tour was full of great information and history of Panam. We learned a lot about the Country and the City. The lunch that was included was really nice and generous servings. There was an amazing view of the ocean. The staff was great and attentive. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Panama City.

Anna our guide was helpful and informative. She understood our needs and had such in-depth knowledge of the canal and old city. Highly recommended! Great fun and amazing value. This is a must for anyone with only half a day to spare in Panama City. Absolutely enjoyable.

Wonderful tour
Feb 2018
It was a half day tour and we saw so much of the beautiful city. We were lucky to be directed to the fourth floor as we arrived at the Canal and were able to see two ships pass through the canal. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a wonderful way to see the city!

Knowledable and fun!
Juan was truly a great guide. He arrived on time and knew the best spots for photos and avoiding lines. Be ready to do some waking but it was worth it! Being that it was a holiday a lot less people. It rained for a whole 5 mins! I recommend this tour.

Great tour around the city
Dec 2017 • Solo
This tour was a great choice. I got to see everything I wanted to see. Pickup was about 15 minutes late from the time they told me, but it was ok in the end. The guide Elmer was great, and since I was the only person on the tour who spoke English, he made sure to translate everything for me when he was speaking. He did a great job of explaining all the sites in the city, and really seemed to care and enjoy his job. The tour itself was pretty expensive, but it seems on par with most of the other similar tours that do the same thing.
