Experience Panama City Like A Local

I’m Joey, an expat and local blogger in Panama City, Panama. I’ve decided to go from writing about Panama City to actually showing people the ins and out of this hot metropolis. I don’t like to refer to what I’m doing as a “tour” but more of an experience.

What we’ll do

Get ready for an immersive tasting menu as you get to experience the real Panama – from the gritty to the most Insta-gramable, and everything in between.

Our adventure begins in Casco Viejo, where we gather on a trendy rooftop to get to know each other. 

We’ll stroll to a luxurious hotel nearby to try a fusion of Panamanian and Asian appetizers before exploring the lively Santa Ana neighborhood, known for its local charm.

We’ll meander along the city’s only pedestrian avenue to capture the vibrant street art. 

Next, we’ll hop on the metro to Bella Vista, a laid-back neighborhood, where we’ll enjoy classic Panamanian dishes at a classic eatery for dinner.

Finally, we’ll walk to the financial district and ascend to a rooftop bar for the grand finale: a hands-on mojito-making workshop. Against the backdrop of a breathtaking view, you’ll craft your own mojito or mocktail while indulging in fresh ceviche, a fitting toast to a day of full exploration in Panama City.

*Vegans, vegetarians, and other food restrictions are welcome but please let me know in advance. 
*The mojitos can be made without alcohol and still enjoyed. 
*This experience includes a lot of walking so please wear appropriate shoes.

The cost to go on the tour is $79 / person with a maximum of 8 people and will last approximately 4 hours. The cost includes a guided tour of Panama City, 3 food & drink stops, transportation costs during the tour (bus, metro & Uber rides), and umbrellas in case it rains. If you are booking a solo tour, you may be combined with another solo traveler or small group, but there will always be a maximum of 8 people to keep it intimate. Please let me know if you have a larger group than eight people and we might be able to accommodate everyone but I prefer to maintain the groups as small as possible. To avoid the worst heat of the day the tours begin at 3:30 pm because this is when the city starts to cool down.

While the cost of the tour is $79, most people on my tour end up saving that much money by the end of their trip by learning the local secrets of where to eat, drink, get around, and not get ripped off. This is a great tour on the first day of your trip so that you can use your new local knowledge for the remainder of your stay.

FAQ

How much time should I set aside for the tour?

Approximately 4 hours.

How do we get around during the tour?

We do a lot of walking, but we will also utilize different forms of the city’s transportation options to get to certain spots (bus, metro, Uber, or taxi). The cost of transportation is covered during the tour.

Do I need to be super fit for this tour?

You do not need to be super fit but we typically walk 3-miles during the tour (with breaks in between), so you need to be able to cover this much ground.

How much does the tour cost?

The cost is $79 / person. This includes a guided tour of Panama City, sampling local food & drinks, transportation costs during the tour (bus, metro & Uber rides), and umbrellas in case it rains.

Can I bring my kids on the tour?

It’s not recommended to bring kids on the tour since we will be walking a lot in very hot and humid weather, eating local food they may not like, and visiting bars. If you would like to bring a kid, it’s still full price and required to book a private tour.

Do we eat during the tour?

We will typically spend the day sampling local food, drinks, and treats and you’ll most likely be full by the end.

How many people are on each tour?

The tours are conducted with a minimum of 1 person and a maximum of 8 people. If you have a bigger group, we might be able to accommodate everyone, but we prefer to keep the groups as small as possible. Sometimes I will combine groups (a group of 1 and a group of 3 for example), but it will always be a maximum of 8 people.

What do I need to bring for the tour?

Just wear comfortable clothing and sneakers/trainers (remember we walk a lot!). If possible, please try to avoid bringing large cameras since we will be going to some of the more local/gritty areas of Panama City. And please bring water because it’s hot!

Where do we meet and at what time?

The tour meets on the rooftop (4th floor of Tantalo Hotel in Casco Viejo at on the day you booked. Feel free to arrive early at Casco Viejo and walk around before the tour if you have time. The endpoint of the tour is in the financial district.
