Half Day City Tour


On this half-day introductory 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.

**Note: Panama Viejo may be replaced for a visit to the Panama Canal for no additional cost.
