I did the canal and city tour with Gonzo one day before lockdown was back on and it was wonderful. The Miraflores visitor center was closed, so he got creative and took me on a drive through the area to get a few different vantage points of the locks and canal. The city tour

I lived in Casco for 10 years.. and I still need more time there.. that is why we end the tour there and give you the option to stay.. so, it cant be to short, you just chose to leave. We do a 1 hour walking to ur to get you orientated.. after the tour, stay.. shop, visit museums, bars, rooof tops, dinner, sunset.. do all the things that a group tour wouldnt be able to do on such a complete city tour like the one we offer! easy
