Scenic Drive and Walking Tour of Colonial Panama. A lot of walking on very uneven surfaces. The guide's estimates of distances left a lot to be desired. When he said six blocks, it was more like ten. Don't really remember much because I was so concerned about breaking an ankle on the cobblestones. Read Less

We chose to do The Gamboa aerial tram here and it was a little disappointing as we saw no wildlife other then one Toucan. The visit to the sloth sanctuary however was very good.

We hired a driver in port and he took us all over the city and was an amazing guide. We walked all over, shopped, had drinks and I fell in love with this beautiful city. It was one of favorites. The history, architecture and friendly people were wonderful. Don’t miss it. Yoyi Dominguez was our driver and I would highly recommend him. You can find him on Facebook or let me know if you need more information Read Less

We visited Casco Viego. This place Is very similar to Cartagena old town. We took princess complimentary shuttle bus to Albrook mall then from there I called Uber to Casco Viego $3.6 to explore on our own. Do your research know the area before you come. On the way back to Fuerte Amador port I ordered Uber to port cost $5.3. My phone is T mobile with simple choice plan and I have free international data. Data speed is 2G not fast but enough to check email WhatsApp message or use Uber ... Uber works out well and cheap in Panama City. It use the same Uber apps like in US. You will able to see the ride cost, driver name, make of car and license plate #. Read Less

Enjoyed a tour of the old locks and the new locks. We came on this curise to learn about the canal and this was the best tour for that.

This is a tender port a ways from Panama City. There is no complimentary shuttle provided. There are some nice souvenir shops at the pier.

The guide took us to meet her friends on the street selling lottery tickets. Then she would take us somewhere and count heads 5 times until she got it right. Very unprofessional.

We took the New Locks & Former Panama Canal Zone excursion. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and we got to see a lot on this excursion. Very interesting. This was a tender port. Getting to the port was fine. Getting back was not so great. We had to wait in line for well over an hour in the brutal sun and the ride was a little rough, but that was due to mother nature. It was fun. Read Less

'We took the Panama 'Canal Railway train from Fuerte Amador, Panama City, through the countryside to the new locks and watched some ships transit. Time to see a small film on the canal and tour around the new locks was fun.
