See the Panama Canal and Panama City’s UNESCO-listed, historic center on a 4-hour tour of Panama City that includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel. Watch ships passing through the Miraflores Locks, follow the Amador Causeway for views back towards downtown Panama City, then see the colonial-era architecture of Casco Viejo.
  • 4-hour Panama City tour
  • Great overview and orientation to the city
  • Visit UNESCO-listed Casco Viejo
  • Pickup and drop-off at your hotel
  • Instant Confirmation
Begin with pickup at your hotel, then travel to Miraflores Locks, a two-step locks on the Panama Canal where ships gain altitude on their way between the Pacific Coast and Lake Gatún (entrance fees at Miraflores Locks are not included in this tour). You’ll have a front row seat for watching the ships, and there’s time to explore the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center, which explains the Panama Canal’s history, engineering, and recent expansion.
Continue to the coast to drive the Amador Causeway between the tiny Causeway Islands, and look back towards the Pacific entrance to the Canal. Drive to Casco Viejo, the historic center of the city, where you have the option to customize your experience: tour the atmospheric neighborhood by vehicle, or follow a guide on a walking tour of the cobblestone streets. You’ll see 19th-century buildings in colonial, French, and Caribbean styles, and learn the dramatic history of this settlement, built after a pirate raid destroyed the first site of the city.
After visiting Casco Viejo, finish the tour with drop-off at your hotel.

Our English guide did not turn up and the driver informed that he was waiting for police due to auto accident. However the driver did manage to explain most of the info to his best ability. The movie on Panama canal shown at the Miraflores locks visitor center was great and also we could watch the ships going through the canal from the observation deck. The tour included visit to historic city Casco Viejo and Causeway to islands.

Our trip was rather disorganized. No email was sent confirming the time or location of the pickup. I therefore had to call to confirm and get the details. We went first to the Canal 1.5 hours before the ships were to pass. It seems they driver should have known this ahead of time. We then left for other parts of the tour and returned to the canal to see the boats passing. We drove the same route several times to the point I could have driven it without a driver. The driver was pleasant but the tour was not well scheduled.

I specifically asked for an English speaking guide. The guide we had spoke almost no English. It was very difficult to communicate. Consequently we didn't learn much about the area other than what we could see. Disappointed.

Unfortunately Viator could not locate or get in touch with the supplier who was supposed to do my scheduled tour, but I eventually did the tour using a different resource and was able to see Panama City, the Canal, Old Town, MultiPlaza Pacifica Mall and Soho Mall, which was AWESOME!

the city tour was very short, think we did more walking it ourselves than the quick drive through we had. our driver was very nice and informative on the canal tour..spent a lot of time so we could experience ships coming through canal.. i will also say since traffic was so bad getting back that he did make a deal and came back next day to finish tour, which was very nice..even went a little extra
