What To Expect
After being picked up at your hotel, you will ride in comfort through the sites of the modern capital city on your way to the Colonial City or "Casco Antiguo." Built in 1673 this neighborhood is home to amazing old world Spanish architecture. Experience the history and heritage of Panama City as you pass through Plaza Francia, Las Bovedas, San Jose Church, with its wonderful gold altar, the Flat Arch, and Cathedral Church. It is here that the French workers, lead by Ferdinand de Lesseps, initiated the Panama Canal project of the Panama Canal and you will notice that the surrounding homes are built in a French style of architecture.
Afterwards, you will make a visit to the ruins of Old Panama City, which were destroyed by pirate Henry Morgan in 1671. The Panama Canal Interoceanic Museum is located here as well as the Palacio de las Garzas, the official office of the Panamanian president. You will then ride through the enchanted Balboa area and admire the Panama Canal Administration Building on a hill before heading to the Miraflores Locks.
Here you will have the chance to see huge shipping vessels transiting through the locks of the Panama Canal. Our tour includes a visit to the new Visitor's Center to see canal memorabilia and watch an informative video about the construction of the canal. Finally, you will be taken to the Amador Causeway, a chain of three islands that offers incredible views of the city. You will also have time to purchase handicrafts and electronics from the Duty Free store. Transportation is provided back to your hotel in the afternoon.
