Detailed Description

This private tour starts by picking you up at the hotel / residence in Panama City by one of our tour guides and then you will be taken to visit the Miraflores Locks Visitors Centre (entrance is not included in the tour price). The Miraflores Locks are one of the three sets of Canal Locks, and is the closest to Panama City. We will be there for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes and you will be able to observe the magnitude of this marvel of engineering, which operates the same hydraulic system since its creation. A local guide of the locks will narrate the operation of the ships that transit through the Panama Canal. There will be a short audiovisual presentation of 20 minutes, you can visit the 4 floors of exhibitions and the gift shop in the visitor center. Our guide will be at your disposal in case you need to know more.

The next stop of the tour will be the Biomuseo designed by Frank Gehry and the viewpoint where you can take wonderful photos of Panama City and the Museum for about 10 minutes. We will not be going inside the museum but exploring around it.

Then, you will cross the Amador Causeway to Isla Flamenco, where we will find restrooms, a giant sign of Panama to take more photos and eat some refreshments, if you wish, and also have time to purchase in the Duty Free.

Then we will move to the Colonial City, and we will walk for 1 hour inside the Old Town, the guide will explain that it was built after Panama La Vieja was burned to the ground. The predominant architectural style of the Casco Antiguo is a combination of Italian, French and Spanish colonial. This part of the City is home to the famous Golden Altar that survived the looting and destruction of the pirate Morgan. We will visit churches and a Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, National Grand Theater, Las Bóvedas, and Plaza de Francia with the history written on the Panama Canal mural. You will be able to see the Plaza de la Independencia, and beautiful old houses including the Canal Interoceanic Museum. You will then have 20 minutes to explore on your own, take pictures and buy some crafts.

At the end of the tour of the Colonial City, the tour will end when the guide returns you to your hotel / residence in Panama City. (Some people want to stay in the Colonial City for lunch and return on their own to their hotel later).

It was a perfect organized tour and very personally and interesting. Our guide Martin showed and told us about the most interesting sights, answered to all our questions also about traditions, politics and economy. He even took our postcards to the post office, cause it was closed on saturday. :) Do this tour, you'll see very beautiful places!!

El tour superó nuestras expectativas ya que en pocas horas nos permitió conocer los principales atractivos de la Ciudad de Panamá incluyendo la zona del Canal. Mención aparte nuestro guía Martín fue muy atento y solicito con nuestros requerimientos. Gracias

Esta vez no tengo una referencia buena... La persona que los guio en el tour los acoso mucho al caminar, como si estuviera arreando ganado, todo fue muy de afan y cuando ellos caminaban no le podian seguir el paso al señor....tambien me comentaron que con los datos que aveces indicaba no eran muy acordes a la realidad, "El cafe de Panama el mejor del Mundo" , es incorrecto, tambien me indicaros que por el afan del señor no podian tomarle fotos a los edificios con calma por los que lo tenian que hacer rapido. tambien me indican que el señor parecia indicando una leccion de colegio sin sentir lo que estaba indicando de los datos y de los lugares.. Pero sobre todo me incomoda que los pusiera a caminar rapido a dos personas de mas de 70 años...y quedaron exausto no disfrutaron...realmente del recorrido.

El feedback es el siguiente: 1. El guía de turistas NO es una persona amable 2. Anda de prisa todo el tiempo 3. Nos recomendó un lugar para comer mariscos a un lado de la zona de pescadores de Panamá, un lugar muy muy sencillo y la cuenta fue de mas de 80.00 USD por 3 personas. Mi acompañante, el guía al cual invitamos y yo. Demasiado caro para el lugar 4. El guía no tiene modales para comer aun cuando se le invita a la mesa come con las manos y no parece tener consideraciones con sus clientes 5. El tiempo calculado en 4 horas terminó antes y en el city tour solo nos llevó las exclusas en donde pasamos muy poco tiempo mirando el ultimo barco que pasó, 15 minutos en el museo y 40 minutos viendo el video IMAX, luego nos llevó a comprar al Duty Free de Amador, NO nos llevó a Panamá Viejo (las ruinas), nos llevó a el Casco antiguo caminando muy de prisa y sin explicar nada. 6. El auto que llevaba es muy viejo e incómodo La experiencia fue muy desagradable Noel Santiago

El tour fue fantástico, totalmente lo recomendaría a amigos que visiten Panamá, quiero destacar que nuestro guía Martín nos relató bastante de la historia de los lugares que visitamos con mi esposa y se nota su profesionalismo en el rubro. Tiqy, excelente plataforma de turismo ya que cumplen con horarios y precios que dice en la web. Saludos, Juan Carlos Infantozzi y Gissele Meza de Infantozzi.... desde El Salvador
