We pick up from most Panama City Hotels
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.

The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable however I booked a whole day tour for 174 half day was 104 and as there was only 3 of us on the tour, the other two went back to their hotel and I went to lunch with the guide. Lunch was good however immediately after lunch I was driven back to hotel to end the tour. I basically paid 70 for lunch expecting a continuation of tour afterwords. Take half day and go for your own lunch. I have reached out to Viator and will update if/ when they respond. I do love using this company though.

The excursion was over and beyond expected by the family and I. The tour guide and driver forgive me if I state their names incorrectly did an incredible job. Thomas, our tour guide, was pleasant and informative who in my opinion went above his duties giving us an educational and delightful day. Our driver, Eduardo, made the full day tour ride very comfortable on that hot summer day in December. The stops canal, museum, and shops and citys tours and sceneries old, colonial, new were amazing and fascinating. Even the lunch, as simple as it was, was surprisingly enjoying. Thank You, Viator.

This tour was just awesome! Very informative! Our guide, Danae, was a sweetheart and she was the best guide possible for this trip. She was very knowledgeable about the whole city and helpful with tips for things to do places to eat other than during the trip. Definitely worth the money.

Okay, not very impressing, too pricey. Lunch was really bad, nothing local was offered - Tasteless and unappetizing. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

The tour was fine, and Hector taught us a lot about Casco Viejo and the Canal. And, he answered lots of questions about life in Panama, which was helpful. But, on reflection, this was not great value. For the price for two of us, we could have spent the money more wisely. For example, we could have taken a bus or taxi to the Miraflores Canal Interpretive Centre, paid the entry by ourselves, and learned as much about the canal as we learned from Hector.

Tour was OK they were late in picking us up by 45 minute so we played catch up all day, lunch was not good, could have save plenty of money by taking 1/2 day tour and forget lunch. Disappointed ,

Janet F
, Jul 2015
The pick up for this trip was so disorganized that the company put us on the wrong tour. We did not end up doing this at all because they put us on a boat we were not supposed to be on. By the time we figured out that it was not part of the city tour it was too late. The company takes everyone to a pier for the tours, don't get on the boat!

My family and I had a excellent time during our tour of the canal and city! Jose exhibited profound knowledge of the history and functionality of the canal. He also had excellent knowledge of the city and marine life in Panama. We give this tour 5 stars! Thank you. The Rottgen Familly, Houston, TX USA

Very much enjoyed the tour. Could have spent more time at the Miraflores Museum. Guide wasn't as informative as the one we had on the Cruise Tour, was also a bit abrupt. The tour was supposed to be a 4-hour tour, we were picked up at 9 am and the guide kept reminding us that we HAD TO BE DONE by 12 noon.

Rajnikant S

Trip description is misleading - you only get to see the locks visitor center, not the canal museum. If you could see both and the old city, then the price would be fair. Given what trip included, cheaper and better to go straight to locks visitor center and see old city separately.

Excellent overview of the city, it's history and surrounding areas. A good basis for knowing what else we wanted to explore. Really enjoyed the day with Elmer. He's a good man wanting to help better his community and students.

Susan v
, Oct 2014
The tour was terrific, only in part because everyone else had signed up for the full day, so for the half day we had a private guide. And he was the BEST GUIDE EVER -- "Joshua." We have taken tours in cities all over the world, and Joshua was the most informed. He was pleasant, enthusiastic and had a sense of humor. He was very knowledgeable not only about historical sites but about global history and how it impacted Panama; Panamas economic and political history; the relevant US history; current issues and trends in Panama. In 4 short hours, we learned not only a great deal about Panama City and the Canal, but also were given the opportunity to develop a deep appreciation for the Panamanian culture. Well worth the time and money. (Note to Viator: Joshua was not with the subcontractor indicated on our voucher; he was with a tour company; you should get him signed up exclusively - -he is a real asset.) Overall the tour was well structured, hitting the key points of the City and the Canal so we could pick where to spend our extra day in Panama.
