Traveler Tips

My advice to future tour people is to park outside of congested and just walking since you will be walking a lot anyway in the old zone.

Amazing Panama Layover Tour

Our tour guide Edwing was awesome. He gave us a nice tour of the city. We saw the Panama Canal and Amador Causeway. He also took us to a local restaurant for typical food which was delicious.
Excellent Layover Tour
BRIAN_M, Dec 2019
We had a 6 hour layover and thoroughly enjoyed his tour. We were able to see the canal and have a nice stroll through the city. Rafael was a wonderful tour guide with his very capable driver, Manuel. We are able to take our carry-on luggage with us. Highly recommended!
Excellent Overview of Panama City

This was our first ever layover tour, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Saul. He was knowledgeable on many subjects and was able to tailor the trip to our interests. We felt we got plenty of time at the canal, and we enjoyed a nice lunch in the old city. He made sure that we got back to the airport with plenty of time to check in to our next flight and grab dinner at the airport as well. I'd highly recommend taking this tour if you have the extra time in Panama!
Really customized to our times and needs!!

Our driver accommodated the places to visit according to our convenience for having lunch and being able to see ships passing in the Miraflores Visitor Center after their break. Also they brought a baby car seat for our little one. I'm really pleased with the attention to the detail to our needs, the excellent conversation and knowledge of our tour guide.
Easy-going, super polite and knowledgeable.

As expected, we went out to see the Panama Canal and then the causeway and the big panama sign but we did get stuck in traffic in the old zone and fortunately we were able to walk out and catch a taxi back to the airport. My advice to future tour people is to park outside of congested and just walking since you will be walking a lot anyway in the old zone. We might have missed our flight. But we didn’t! Tour guide was very concerned.
Response from Host, Jun 2019
Thank you Mr D242L, we already asked all our guides to park outside Casco Antiguo to avoid any delay due to Goberment admin changes this week. Thank you again. Saul
muy bueno
