We enjoyed our Southbound journey with this group. We passed through the fascinating locks and enjoyed the bilingual commentary. This is a “must do” if you have the time. Recommended!

This is a must do if you visit Panama. The full transit gives you a view of how the entire canal works, the locks on the Caribbean side, and a chance to just enjoy the scenery and amazing ships going by. Highlight recommend!

We went on this tour as part of the Panama Canal cruise and saw the new part in use although we eventually went through the older section. The history of the building of the canal was fasacinating as was the workings of the canal.

If you're on a layover or spending a whole day in Panama City, do yourself a favor and visit the canal and its museum. It'll cost you US$15 to enter but it's totally worth it. Lot's of informative videos and props, and it's super fun.
