Meeting point

The meeting point is right beside the statue of the man riding a horse (General Tomas Herrera) in the middle of the square Plaza Herrera. It would be super easy to recognize the tour guide because she/he will be holding a sign with Panama Vibes written.

The tour was very good, it was the established time and full of good data. The very professional guide despite the rain that kept us busy all the time. Highly recommended to know the history of Panama and some other curious fact, especially if you want to know areas of the old town, do it with someone from the area, since apparently doing it on our own can be somewhat dangerous.

Wonderful synopsis of old Town Panama’s formation, while taking in all the sites at a leisurely pace. Alex brought the history, architecture, culture and renovation to life! I really enjoyed it.
