Tour description

(Very important note at the end)

Get to the top of the tallest building in Panama and use public transportation just like a local, don’t miss the chance of walking through the buildings of the modern side of the city with me while enjoying the amazing architecture, history, picture spots, and more. 
We’ll meet at Casco Viejo, and make our way to the heart of the city (Can you already imagine this contrast?) for a 2:00 - 2:30 hours walking tour


  • Plaza 5 de Mayo
  • Old rail station 
  • Subway
  • Via Argentina
  • Calle 50
  • El Tornillo
  • Punta Pacifica
  • JW Marriot (AKA Trump’s building)

If you’re not convinced by now, I just wanted to let you know that we're catching the sunset at the tallest bar in Latin America and amaze ourselves with the view

*On Sundays we’ll have to pay a $10 cover per person in order to get to the top of the tallest building ❤️
* Under 18 y.o are not allowed in the bar
* It is a long walk (5-6 km), bring comfortable shoes and water 
*Bring an umbrella just in case (We're in Panama <3)

José es el mejor guía que hemos tenido hasta la fecha. Hace un tour diferente que se sale de lo más típico, ofrece una experiencia única para conocer y disfrutar otras zonas de Panamá mas allá del Casco Viejo. Anímate a hacer este tour con José, tanto si hablas inglés como español. Totalmente recomendable!!!

It’s good to have a tour that is not based on monuments or buildings, and is outside Casco Viejo. It is good to experience Metro travel as part of the tour.

Jose did an interesting tour and not your typical Panama tour. He guided us to different neighbourhoods of Panama from the lower class to the middle class to the wealthy neighbourhoods. I really enjoyed his flexibility with regards to the tour. We could stop the tour anytime we wanted and he even got an uber to reduce the amount of walking for us. He also had great tips on inexpensive places to eat in Panama and was point on with the pricing. I really enjoyed the walking tour and highly recommend him if you want a different kind of tour in Panama city.

A really thorough walk that allowed me to see many different neighborhoods. I appreciated catching the subway, too. Jose was well informed and had such good stamina considering how much walking we did. I am going to sleep likr a baby tonight!

Jose Luis does a very unique walking tour by getting out of Casco Viejo and exploring the city. He takes you along the subway and gives you great information and the history of the locations. He makes it his own and takes you to hidden gems known to locals. Jose has a warm personality and is very engaging. We are very glad we did his walking tour.
