On arrival at Colon Cruise Port, meet your private guide and set out on the around 1-hour drive to Panama City by private vehicle. Start your day with a visit to the 654-foot (200-meter) summit of Ancon Hill, from where the views span Panama City and the Panama Canal.
Continue to Miraflores Locks, where you can learn more about the legendary canal at the Miraflores Visitor Center and watch a 3D movie about the canal’s history. Stop to take photos of the iconic Bridge of the Americas and the striking multi-colored Frank Gehry Bio Museum, then stroll along the Amador Causeway, where you can enjoy lunch (own expense) gazing out over the Pacific Ocean entrance to the Panama Canal.
After lunch, follow your guide on a walking tour of Panama City’s old town, Casco Viejo, and admire the UNESCO-listed monuments.
Depending on your cruise departure time, either head straight back to Colon port, or relax with a drink (own expense) at one of the waterfront bars as you watch the sunset over the canal.
Your tour ends with drop-off at Colon cruise port.
