Panama City is a bustling metropolis close to magnificent beaches and a lush rainforest. Want to see all of Panama City’s top sights in one day so you have time explore the rest of the country? Local guide Kevin has you covered. You’ll start your day with the big picture view of the city, literally. Kevin will take you up to the Cerro Ancon for a bird’s eye view of the Panama City. Be sure to get your camera out for this unbeatable photo op with the city as your backdrop.
Meanwhile, in your comfortable transportation, your local guide will tell you all about the city’s history and its famed canal. He’ll take you to the Miraflores Locks visitor center to see the ships passing through and visit the museum. On this busy tour, you’ll still have time for a relaxed lunch on the Amador, a strip of land connecting the Panama mainland with three islands. You’ll dive deeper into the history of the city in old town. While this may be a city tour, you’ll also venture off into a nature trail where you might just see a sloth. In about 8 hours, your local guide will have taken you on a whirlwind tour of the best the city has to offer.

I’m originally from Boston, but its harsh winters sent me to search for more tropical lands. I traveled all around the United States and then eventually ventured into Latin America, where I fell in love with the passionate and diverse culture of each and every country throughout the area. In fact, I loved it so much that I decided to make traveling in the region my new career.
I made it my goal to share my new discoveries with everyone that came to visit me while I traveled around South and Central America for a few years. My family and friends really enjoyed me showing them around some of the place I had been and they convinced me to become a tour guide. I took up tourism as a career and it stuck. For 12 years, I’ve led a variety of unique tours in many different Latin American countries, such as Argentina, Panama, and many others. To this day, I am the only guide to ever lead a tour from Ushuaia, Argentina, one of the most southern cities in South America, all the way to Alaska. After years of traveling all around the region, I decided it was time to settle down. Upon reflection, I realized that Panama was the place that felt the most like home. Now, 14 years later, I’m still here leading tours. I know this country like the back of my hand. Panama may not be my birth country, but I give my tours like a local would.
