- Duration: Half day
The tour starts at the Panama Canal, a magnificent work of engineering, in fact, it is the greatest and most expensive human feat of its time, the one Balboa had dreamt about since 1513. At the Visitor Centre of Miraflores Locks, you will be able to see in detail ships moving along the canal inaugurated in 1914 and the way it operates. Afterward visit the Amador Causeway which offers one of the most spectacular panoramas of the city.
The tour continues at the Biomuseo or Museum of Biodiversity designed by Frank Gehry, the creator of the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum in Spain then to the neighbourhoods located at the foot of Ancón Hill – the highest point in the city which belonged sometime to the so-called Canal Zone where U.S. army officers and officials lived in during the U.S. administration of the canal.
Lastly, there will be a brief stop for an incredible view showing on one hand skyscrapers, part of a modern and lively city, and on the other hand the little historic centre and its wonderful gulf.
