About this trip

 If you’re on a short stopover in Panama City there’s no need just stay in the cruise ship. Get out and make the most of your time in this vibrant city. On a 8-hour city & canal Tour, you have time to visit the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal.

ITINERARY


We will head to Panama City  which is 80 minutes away. We will drive around the famous Cerro Ancon inside the former U.S. Canal Zone and out to the islands along the Amador Causeway for the best view of Panama’s skyline and a stop at the colorful PANAMA sign and newly built Biomuseo biodiversity museum designed by internationally renowned architect, Frank Gehry.


Then, we will stroll along the charming cobblestone streets of Casco Antiguo. Tracing its history to 1673 and filled with splendid Colonial architecture, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is today one of Panama City’s liveliest districts. There are ​Local and Indigenous arts & crafts at Casco Antiguo.

Finally, we will visit Panama Canal Visitors’ Center at Miraflores Locks, where ships can be seen transiting the waterway (depending on the Canal schedule). Please bring US cash or a credit card to pay your entrance fee, which is USD 17.22 per adult and USD 7.22 per child (6–12 years old).


We will bring you back to the dock around 4:30 pm.

Thank you, Edwing, for the informative and nice tour of Panama City, while we were on transit.

It is lovely to step off a long flight and have someone inside the airport ready to pick you up. Levy was excellent; the directions were clear on where he would meet us. He communicated by WhatsApp to let us know he was there. He held a sign with our names on it. He was a safe driver and told us a little about the city as we drove. If you want to travel stress-free, then Levy and his team are the folks to call. The price was reasonable and this is 100% better than trying to take a Taxi or Uber. Don't make your arrival more complicated or stressful, ask for Levy he is the best.

We had a wonderful day with a super nice driver who accompanied us in a competent and friendly manner. The whole process, from booking to drop-off at the hotel, was sensational. We can recommend this organisation completely and without hesitation. We travelled as a family (2 adults and 1 child).

This was a trip that I had planned on doing as soon as I knew I was going to Panama. I cannot begin to put into words how amazing it was. Our tour guide was phenomenal in providing us with as much information upfront. Once we arrived at the Rivers edge we were met by two members of the Embera tribe who provided us life jackets and took us down the river for about 30 minutes. The rainforest was beautiful, clean, quiet, and full of so many unknowns. Upon our arrival to the village, we were met by some women and children who were as curious about us as we were about them. Once in the village after a short walk, we were given a proper Embera introduction, traditional dancing and best of all our lunch. We ate fresh tilapia, plantains, and fresh fruit. It was the most delicious meal I ate during my entire trip to Panama. We were able to engage with the children of the village and purchase some authentic trinkets. At the end of the trip, we had an opportunity to swim in the clearest water I have seen and also witness the children playing in their "backyard" jumping off the cliff into the water. I highly recommend this trip and next time will do a night at the village that is also offered.
