Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Enjoy convenient pickup at your Panama City hotel. Then travel via comfortable tour vehicle to the Casco Antiguo area of the city, the original settlement founded by the French in 1673. As you look around, notice the blend of architectural styles, including Italian, French, and Spanish styles. Admire ruins of convents and churches; see military buildings, bridges, and colonial palaces that tell the story of this city's grandiose past. 

    Continue to the Miraflores Locks, where you can watch monstrous ships, carrying goods across the world, pass through the brilliantly engineered locks. Take a look around the Visitors Center, which features four exhibition halls containing engaging educational displays. 

    On the return journey, pass the former Panama Canal Zone, one occupied by American military installations, which hints at the strategic importance of the area. 

    Return to your Panama City hotel for drop-off.
