Panama City's Top Tour
From US$120.00
This comprehensive Panama City tour showcases the best of this Central American destination and highlights more than just the famous canal. Spend the day exploring old town, Amador Causeway, Cerro Ancon and the visitor center at Miraflores Locks, plus so much more. It's the perfect way for first-time visitors and travelers tight on time to see it all!
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the American Trade's CAFE UNIDO in old town. You'll journey to Ancon Hill and take in stunning city and canal views before checking out the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center with your guide. You'll learn about the history of the canal and see ships passing through as you explore the exhibits. You'll break for lunch (at own expense) at the causeway and wander the nature trail (closed Mondays), before strolling through the historic streets of Casco Antiguo. This is one of the best ways to see it all while visiting Panama City!
