What people are saying about Miraflores Visitor's Center

Juan Carlos was an amazing guide. He has a wealth of knowledge on the canal, the history of panama, the economics, the politics, and the terrain. He also recommend many great places in old town, the surrounding area, and the marina!

Very entertaining tour, were only 3 people. Raphael made the tour an experience, although we almost only had rain. Have seen the new and old Panama City, the absolute highlight for us was the visit to the Mirafloris lock system.

Ricardo our tour guide and David our driver were both pleasant and courteous. Learned a great deal of Panamanian history. 5 stars would definitely recommend.

A fantastic tour, our guide Ricardo was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. A fantastic afternoon that gave us a far greater insight to Panama.

We enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the Canal and Panama City.
