What You Can Expect

Taste of Panama City: Walking Tour with Food and Drinks in Casco Viejo

Panama City Food and Drinks Walking Tour in Casco Viejo

Your culinary walking tour of the World Heritage–listed Casco Viejo district (aka Casco Antiguo) begins in the evening at Café Unido. Meet your guide and small group at this coffee roastery for a tasting of Panamanian coffee produced from high-end beans, and learn from a local coffee roaster about the industry.

Next, follow your guide past historical landmarks like the Arco Chato (Flat Arch) en route to a gourmet food shop that specializes in rich Panamanian chocolate. You’ll sample organic chocolate produced by the Ngöbe, an indigenous group from the Bocas del Toro province.

Then continue on foot past the Metropolitan Cathedral and white-washed Palacio de las Garzas, the Presidential Palace, until you reach a local microbrewery, where you can enjoy a tasting of four beers — whichever are on tap that day — and learn a bit about beer-making in Panama.

You’ll stroll along the Malecón (seawall and esplanade) to a seafood market for a taste of fresh ceviche, a Panamanian specialty. Savor fresh raw fish cured in lime juice and flavored with chopped onion and cilantro before heading to your final stop at a rooftop bar.

Toast the end of your 2-hour tour with a rum cocktail made with 7-year-old Ron Abuelo, which comes from one of Panama's oldest rum producers, and snap photos with newfound friends as the sun sets over Panama City.

Fun walking tour in the old town. There were only two of us on the tour, so it was very personal. The guide was new to the company, so had to refer to her notes quite a bit, but we found her knowledgeable and charming. We also enjoyed all the stops on the tour

We had a lot of fun on this tour and enjoyed meeting other people and hearing their travel experiences. Ross took us to places we wouldn't have known about from our guide books and was very knowledgeable about Old City and chocolate, coffee beer, fish, nightlife and Panama. Alternative food and drink was offered if you didn't like a particular offering.

Unido Geisha coffee rocked! That was the start of the tour. We ventured out all around Casco Viejo and the Seafood Market to enjoy other fresh ceviche and cool beer at Rana Dorada. It was worth it!

Definitely a must do. The tour guide, Kevin in knowledgeable and engaging. The pace of the evening is perfect for conversation and the opportunity to soak in the skyline of beautiful Panama City. The ceviche was the best and the marketplace fascinating. We did this tour at the end of our trip and it was a great way to bid farewell to Panama for now.
