Full description
Enjoy a ride through the streets of colonial Panama, known as Casco Antiguo, as you begin this 3.5-hour tour. Founded in 1673 by French colonists, the city experienced many changes over time.

See the influences in buildings that are a blend of French, Spanish, and Italian styles. The ruins of the churches, palaces, bridges, and more attest to Panama City’s grandiose past.

Continue to the Miraflores Locks. See the massive ships that make their way through the Panama Canal. Visit the exhibition halls of the Miraflores Visitor Center.

Returning to the city, pass the former Panama Canal Zone where the American military installations are a reminder of the strategic importance of the area.
