Missed informed at time to book this trip. I was not informed of the charges I have to pay at the Canal. I was dropped off at Albrook Mall and I was advised that they will pick me and family up at around 5pm, to take me to Soho Mall, where I was picked up in the morning.

Visiting the Panama Canal was a pretty awesome experience. To watch these huge ships slowly trekking through the canal was exciting. I enjoyed the history lessons as well, and learned many facts I had no idea about. I also enjoyed walking through Casco Viejo and seeing the people who live there. The shops and various buildings were beautiful. I especially enjoyed touring the church built back in 1640. My tour guide, Mariel, was great. She was kind and funny and did a great job pointing out the different sites we explored. I highly recommend this tour early in your trip - to get a better understanding of Panama City's colorful history, as well as jumpstarting your time by looking at the Panama Canal. You can even have your picture taken, and the photographer will create an amazing backdrop that your picture is in front of.

My guide was so nice and I got to learn so much about Panama. Edwado (May be spelled wrong) went above and beyond his job to make the tour very enjoyable. I was going to buy water at museum but he said it was expensive and he would take me to a store. Got my water for 80 cents This was just one of the extras he did. I would recommend this tour
