Full description

Explore the highlights of Panama City in the company of a local to acquire a deeper sense of appreciation for its history and culture. Travel through the many landmarks along the Panama Canal, explore the Causeway Islands, and stroll through the historic Casco Viejo.

Excellent tour. I was considering visiting these places on my own, but so glad I booked with Miguel. He was so helpful and incredibly knowledgeable, and his explanations of the history of the places we visited really added to my tour experience.
