Get a comprehensive look at Panama City and Canal's most famous spots on this half-day tour that takes you to Ancon Hill, the Mira Flores locks, and Casco Viejo. Enjoy the convenience of a small group size and the luxury of being escorted in a spacious vehicle as you visit the city's highlights.

Head out in a spacious vehicle with your professional guide, making your way to the top of Ancon Hill as the start of your tour. Standing at the peak of the 654-foot (200-m) hill, admire panoramic vistas of Panama City and the surrounding region, including the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and the Las Americas Bridge. From there, head down to Mira Flores locks and step into the visitor center to learn about the history and construction of the Panama Canal.

After your time at the Canal, drive to Panama's Casco Viejo (Old Town) district to take a historical tour through the city. Stop at the Flat Arch, which is the only surviving part of a 17th-century church of Santo Domingo, and the stunning Golden Altar in the Church of San Jose to learn of its dramatic past from your guide. Spend time perusing the newly restored restaurants and shops that make the area a popular hotspot for locals before heading back to your starting point to end the tour.

One of the locations on the trip that was advertised was Anton Hill...it has been closed for over a month...the Expedia add should have been updated to reflect this. Driver was 90 minutes late for pickup due first driver not showing up. The tour company Panama Pelican did call and did find us a new driver....thus the 90 minute delay. The tour was extremely expensive for 4 hours at $158 with tax per person....there were four of us. I believe we deserve a partial refund.
