Full description
Take a short 5-hour private tour from Tocumen Airport while you have a layover in Panama. Take a fascinating close look at the Panama Canal Miraflores Locks Visitor Center and learn about the city culture and history in the old town Casco Viejo. Get picked from the Tocumen Airport as soon as your flight arrives. Your guide will be waiting with a sign with your name, right past the custom exit doors. Start with a visit to the Miraflores Visitor Center in the Panama Canal where you will have the opportunity to watch the operation of the canal closely and see the ships passing by, depending on canal schedule. The center also includes an exhibition and a museum. Next, drive around Causeway Amador for pictures and then head to Casco Viejo, Panama City’s old town, for a walking tour. See the beautiful houses and charming shops and restaurants. Located on a peninsula of the city, close to the Panama Canal, Casco Viejo is a World Heritage Site and one of the main tourist spots in the Panamanian capital. After your visit to the old town, you will be driven back to the airport to catch your flight.
