  • This was a great way to get a PRIVATE tour of the city, including the locks and the old town. Perfect for those who only have a few hours to get a feel for the place!

  • A private tour around the city. Panama City is wonderful, a surprise to most visitors: clean, organized, safe. The only problem is that traffic may get busy and difficult to manage at peak hours. We loved Casco Viejo stop. Since I am a senior citizen and have a knee problem I could not enjoy the walking parts of the tour as I would like to have done. The modern district and tall buildings were shown to us by our guide when we asked him to do so.

  • This Tour was excellent. Our guide, Marcos, was totally prepared for the day, he knew exactly when the ships would be transiting through the Canal and got us there to see it right on time. He showed us the Old Town and was very patient with us when we wanted to stop for a drink. He certainly knows what he is talking about! We were very impressed and would certainly recommend a tour of this type again. Thanks for the enjoyment!

  • We took the tour February 12, 2017 with Nicholas. He was an amazingly informed tour guide. So much in fact, that when we were at the Miraflores Locks and Museum, several folks surrounded him to listen to him stating the facts of the Canal. Additionally, Nicholas was a wealth of information on Panama City. It was a pleasure to have spent our scheduled time with him as we toured the city.

  • Very Happy
    Tour guide and driver very nice
    Panama was the my third trip with Viator

  • Gregory was really nice with us and took us to all sight seeing and explained a lot of history of Panama. Excellent service.

  • Unfortunately this day Ancon hill was closed, in addition the Miraflores locks were in maintenance, hence we do not enjoy in its fullness the tour. Lucky the guide was a nice and charming person

  • We had a wonderful time in Panama city. We are a family of 5, My husband and I, two 16year olds and a 13 year old. We opted for a half day private tour. Our tour guide Gregory arrived at our hotel well before time. He accommodated us in a comfortable, well air-conditioned minivan. He was courteous and knowledgable about Panama and world events in general. He easily explained the engineering behind the Panama Canal to my eager 16 year old son.
    After the trip he helped me find a pharmacy to get some medication for my husband and offered to take us to the airport for our flight the following day.
    I would recommend this trip to anyone. A little bit pricey but worth it.

  • Excellent trip with great guide. Well worth the price. Particularly fortunate to time visit to Miraflores Locks with ships transiting the locks
