What You Can Expect

Panama City Sightseeing Tour Including Miraflores Locks

Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal

Start with morning pickup from the American Trade Hotel, and listen as your guide describes the engineering wonder of the Panama Canal en route to the Miraflores Locks, the first stop on your full-day tour. On arrival, witness ships being raised and lowered between sea level and Miraflores Lake, then enjoy interactive displays at the Miraflores Visitors Center.

Next up is Ancón Hill (Cerro Ancón), a 650-foot (200-meter) viewpoint that overlooks Panama City. After the drive up, stroll around the lookout platform and keep an eye out for armadillos, deer, tamarins and even elusive sloths!

Browse for local handicrafts at an artisan market before continuing south into Panama Bay and the Amador Causeway (Calzada de Amador), which connects the mainland to three small manmade islands. View the Bridge of the Americas and stop for lunch at one of the area’s many restaurants (own expense). After lunch, you'll head to the Smithsonian-operated Punta Culebra Nature Center on Naos Island for a 20-minute outdoor stroll around the open-air museum. 

Back in Panama City, you’re driven to the 17th-century colonial neighborhood of Casco Viejo (‘Old Quarter’) for a 1.5-hour guided walking tour through the World Heritage–listed district. See landmarks such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Palacio de las Garzas (the residence of the President of Panama), the Church of St Francis of Assisi and the National Theatre as you learn little-known facts from your guide.

Your full-day tour ends with return to the central meeting point.

Helpful adjustment to the standard sequence of the tour to make the most of the weather, avoiding walking when it was raining. And the guide offered that at the end of the tour, he'd take those of us who wanted to walk to the top of a hill which was closed to traffic, Which we would otherwise have driven to.

Kevin was a very knowledgeable guide, and he also had a sense of humor to add to the mix. We got to see a lot in a relatively short amount of time. So . . . Thumbs Up.

The tour was outstanding with our guide and driver, Gonzo, demonstrating a thorough knowledge of Panama and the Panama Canal. We arrived at the Miraflores Locks just in time to see some shipping passing through the locks. Our guide, Gonzo, engaged us with anecdotal stories and facts about Panama as we toured the old city and during our luncheon at Di Ranchito, a local restaurant on the Armador, which turned out to be one of the best restaurants during our stay in Panama. In all, the tour was a very memorable one with no stone left unturned. It was a pleasure to be guided by the Barefoot Panama tour company they are the best. Don M. Washington, DC
