Panama City Layover Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 5 hours
Great tour overall. Got to see a lot of the city (or as much as can be expected in 4 hours), and for a first-time visit to Panama, it was a great "orientation." One thing to be careful about, though, is the pick-up time from the airport. It took us over an hour to get through Customs (I am still in shock by how incredibly slooooooowwwwwww the officers were, omg!! they were taking almost 10 minutes per person!). The customs process is not GYG's fault, HOWEVER....they told me that the tour guide would pick us up at 7:30, but told the tour guide we arrive at 6:30 and did not factor customs clearance time in their arrangements with him. We got out at 7:45 and our tour guide had almost left because they had told him to be there at 6:30! So be careful with this when booking and/or making arrangements for pick-up.
Solo female traveler here! I am SO happy I took the time to look this tour up to make the most of my 7-hour layover in Panama. This company is absolutely fantastic! It's actually a family run business, and the guides are all super knowledgeable and kind. The pick-up was easy, and we went directly to the Canal and had time to see additional sites (my tour ended up being ~ 4 hours). As a solo, young, female traveler, it was important for me to feel safe, and this tour did not fail in that domain! I felt very comfortable the whole time, and my belongings were always secured in the van in a discreet manner. I'm looking forward to recommending to my friends/family who may have long layovers here!
This is a great tour! We had a group of nine people returning from a mission trip and had an eight hour layover. Our guide, Cesar, met us at the airport and provided a comfortable, air conditioned bus. He was very knowledgeable and did a great job. He gave us a couple of options for our lunch break, and when our time starting getting close, he modified the tour to be sure we made it back to the airport on time. I'm very pleased with the tour and would definitely recommend it!
I am very pleased with my Layover trip to Panama City from Tocumen Airport, I highly recommended this tour. A driver picked us up at the airport on time, then we had the opportunity to ride around the city, stopping at Miraflores Visitors Center, Amador Causes, Ancient and Modern Sides of the city and finally back to the airport. The driver was very kind with great tour guiding skills.
Booked a Spanish Solo Tour and it was spectacular! Santiago was my guide and was waiting at the transportation area with a sign with my name. He knows the full history and every background detail about Panama. He took his time showing me around and made a lot of stops without rush. Santiago definitely enjoy what he’s doing and that translates into an amazing tour!
