  • Overview

    Discover unique, exquisite Panama: there are two oceans, mountain landscapes and a rainforest to explore, as well as vibrant native culture alongside a buzzing urban atmosphere.

    The city was made famous by the building of the Panama Canal in 1914, a 77.1 kilometre ship canal often nicknamed as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Our tour bus will take you to the famous Miraflores locks and you will discover how the Canal works. Visit Mi Pueblito, a fascinating complex where you will learn about the variety of local cultures at the foot of Cerro Ancon hill; here you can observe how homes were built using mud and straw as well as enjoy cultural performances. The numerous skyscrapers create a unique contrast with the 19th Century Italian and French architecture at the old city centre.

    Hop off for a visit to any of the attractions and hop back on when you’re ready. Sightseeing really does not get any easier than this!

    Audio commentary is available in Spanish, English, French, Italian, Portuguese and German.
