Panama City Taxi Tour Recommendations

I have a 11 hour layover in Panama City and I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations for a taxi company or even a particular person who offers to drive a tourist around the city to view the sites.

Thanks,

~Greg

Leroy, this isn't a booking agency to make reservations, and it's not a good idea to postyour personal information here. This is a forum of travel advice and recommendations.

You shouldn't have any trouble getting a taxi at Tocumen or at the terminal in Colón. A taxi will cost in the range of $75 to $100 one way. You might also check into private drivers, such as Roadrunner and others mentioned in this forum. (Beware of recommendations from people who only recommend one company in all their posts, or have only posted once.)

You're arriving at Tocumen at 3:15 pm? Doesn't your ship leave Colón at 5:00 pm? If so, you'll never make it. The drive from Tocumen to the port will take over 90 minutes. You might look into an earlier flight. I would recommend arriving a day prior and spending the night in Panama City.

February 2014 - We hired an English speaking driver named Anthony. He drove us from El Cangrejo to Miraflores Locks and came back for us 2 hours later, drove to Ancon Hill and provided a mini-tour there, and drove us around the city to points of interest. He charged us $10 per hour; and we hired him for a half day. Anthony took us to the ferry and picked us up at the Causeway after we visited Toboga Island. He was extremely reliable and courteous. His brother also offers tour services. Anthony can be reached at local # 65878027.

We have an overnight layover in Panama City on March 22nd. By the time we go through customs, it will be about 3:30. Even though we can take a free shuttle to our hotel in the city, we are thinking of hiring a taxi at the airport to give us a mini tour of some of the sites. Is there a particular taxi service that you would recommend? We know it will get dark soon, but would even like to see some things at night .

Which hotel will you be staying in Panama-City ? I would rather take a cab to the hotel and then depending the time, walk or take a small taxi ride. Yes... it will be dark... So I suggest you to have a walk in the old city and you will have the view from the Modern City Skyline. You can also order a tour guide for the walking tour at night...

I had not heard of any hotels in the city offering free shuttles.
