Full description
A day of fun in cosmopolitan Panama City. See the town that the world built and of course, its famous canal. Usually, your first stop will be Miraflores Locks and the Panama Canal. Miraflores Locks and the Panama Canal is your next stop. Here you will watch the ships maneuver the canal's locks, learn more about the canal at the museum. You will visit an artisan market for the best Panamanian-made souvenirs before heading to the Amador for lunch (not included). Then you will take a short nature trail walk in the Punta Culebra's open-air musuem, which is owned by the Smithsonian Foundation of Panama. Save the best for last with a walking tour of the old town: Casco Viejo. Marvel at its spectacular architecture and learn about the history of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Very good tour, I recommend it, excellent arrival time at the canal, it allows you to observe it without crowds, Gonzo knows the history of Panama well and despite the fact that the tour was in English and Spanish, I feel that the explanations were sufficient in both languages. Thanks Gonz!

The tour guide made this an enjoyable and very informative experience. His knowledge and communication was outstanding. The locations visited and overall content of the tour were outstanding, including the venue selected for lunch. The small group size also made the tour more enjoyable, since it made contact and communications with the tour guide very accessible, Also, the timeframe/length of the tour was just right!

Excellent tour, flexible to take advantage of the day, Goncho is a very good guide who knows very well the history and the places to which it takes you. Panama history is combined with the old town, modern development with the theme of the canal and nature with the visit to Punta Culebra.
