Full Day City Tour & Canal

INFO

On this full-day tour of Panama City, your guide will illuminate some of the highlights of this tropical metropolis. Start with a visit to the remains of the former capital city of Panama—Panamá Viejo, or Old Panama—founded in 1519 and looted by the pirate Henry Morgan in 1671.

Then continue to the picturesque Casco Viejo, commonly called the walled city. Casco Viejo was founded by the Spaniards in 1673 after the First City of Panama (Old Panama) was destroyed. Together with Old Panama, the Casco Viejo is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is appreciated worldwide for its unique historical and artistic value. The neighborhood’s character comes alive with a walk through its narrow cobblestoned streets. You will have the opportunity to appreciate this area’s beautiful colonial and neoclassical architecture, squares and monuments, while learning more about the history and culture of the city.

Afterwards, you will continue to the Miraflores Locks of the Panama Canal via private car. Here you will learn about the history and construction of the Canal at the Visitor’s Center and Museum, and will have the opportunity to watch massive vessels transit through the locks.

Following the tour, you will be dropped back off at your hotel.
