This was a great bus tour and the canal museum and the visitor's center were the highlights. It is just amazing how this canal was made and equally sad to see how many people died in the construction. Just outside the visitor's we saw a sloth in the trees.

Had a layover in Panama City for 10 hours which I love because it gives me a chance to do a quick check on a city to see if I need to come back. TA sent me Ali Douglas of Ivan Tours. He did an amazing job. I got the highlights of the city and a good bit of history from Ali. Will definitely be back. Panama City and are has it all

Looking for an amazing, educational tour?

Look no further than Luis Vega!

I can not speak enough great things of our experience with Luis. He knows all the good times to go to the canal. He knows the history and facts about the city. He drives a nice van so plenty of room for a family. His English is perfect! He also made some stops around town at different lookout points for pics. He’s very affordable too.

I found him through this site and another person’s review. I hope you find him through mine. He responds very quickly if you email him. When we come back to Panama we will definitely be calling him again!

Good luck and have fun!

The Miraflores visitor centre had a museum, audio-visual room and a restaurant. I think it had 4 floors. My mom and I went when we visited Panama and we loved the experience. On the top floor we had an amazing view of the Canal as the ships came and went. We did not go with a tour guide but travelled there by ourselves. Outside the centre there are many taxis outside. So we were able to take one to the Mall after we were done at the centre, which is just like 15 mins away. The fare was expensive though. There was a fare to go into the centre, I think it was USD$20.
