Half-day morning tour includes a visit to the ruins of Old Panama and Casco Viejo (the old city compound) which dates from the late 1600's. A bilingual guide will describe the events in history leading up to the eventual movement of the capital city to its present location.


Casco Viejo is home to monuments to Ferdinand de Lesseps and other Frenchmen instrumental in the ill-fated attempt of the French to construct a canal through Panama. The tour ends with a visit to the Panama Canal Museum.

The full day tour continues with lunch at a Panamanian restaurant and a tour of the Panama Canal area, including the town of Balboa, formerly part of the Panama Canal Zone. A stop at the folk art market at the old YMCA building is followed by a visit to the Miraflores Locks on the Panama Canal where large ships can be seen transiting the canal. Enjoy a presentation by the Panama Canal Commission on the history of the Panama Canal and marvel at the workings of this feat of human engineering. Return to Panama City hotel late in the afternoon.
