        Great way to see Panama City and Canal locks
        Superb excursion; especially with our extremely knowledgeable guide Kevin, who has lived in Panama for almost 30 years. Private Tour so we did not have to deal with being on a bus with 60 people. The first thing Kevin did was call Miraflores lock and find out if a ship was entering the lock. The last ship of morning was getting ready to transit, so we went directly to the Miraflores lock and visitor center. We watched the entire transit of a large ship and got great pictures and video. We then went to the visitor center and watched an IMAX film on building the Canal. There were no ship busses to watch the transit. When they got there, they saw nothing but the empty lock as the next ship transit would not occur until the afternoon in the opposite direction. Next, we went to Old Town (Casco Viejo) and saw the oldest church in the city. It had the largest, most detailed nativity sceen we have ever seen. The room was off the main cathedral down a hall. We would never have found this room without Kevin's knowledge. We spent a couple more hours in Old Town and also had lunch. We saw many attractions and walked in right from our car. Streets were too narrow for busses, so the ship tours parked outside Old Town and passengers walked to see the sights. We also visited the new part of Panama City with skyscrapers and modern buildings that have been constructed in the past 20 years A great tour made so much more interesting due to our guide Kevin.

        Guided tour of Panama City
        First, I have to thank Fernando Semproni, our contact at Viator, for his excellent support in arranging and planning this special custom tour for the four of us. He was able to provide everything we wanted to do and provided additional suggestions, which we liked and added to the tour. He answered all questions sent to him promptly, even answering some on the weekends - we could not have asked for anything more from him, and we are so very happy with the results of the tour. Second, the guide provided for the tour, Jorge Gonzalez was amazing! His English was excellent and his knowledge of Panama and the places we visited were complete. He was so extremely polite and courteous, responding perfectly to all our requests and making sure we were comfortable and happy with the tour. He also did an amazing job of arranging the the order of the tour to make for the best use of our time. We saw everything we wanted to see and more. I cannot say enough nice things about Jorge. He has given us a wonderful memory of Panama that we will never forget - awesome experience!

        Wonderful guide - really made us feel special - shared wonderful information! After already going through the Panama Canal on our cruise ship, it was wonderful to learn more about the new and old canals and plans for the future. Enjoyed driving through all different parts of the city and enjoyed a lovely lunch at a local restaurant. Guide was professional and friendly. Thank you!
