On this tour, you’ll find out why this 80-kilometre expanse of water is known as one of the seven wonders of the modern world. The Panama Canal stretches between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, and you’ll get to travel along its full length, all the way from Panama City to Colón. Once your coach has picked you up, you’ll start things off with a visit to the Miraflores Locks. Here, you can crane your neck up at the enormous ships making their way along the canal. Then, in the visitor centre’s four exhibition halls, learn about the history of the canal and how important it continues to be today. Finally, you’ll drive alongside the water until you get to its newest addition – a set of locks that opened up in 2016. In the Canal Expansion Observation Centre, you’ll be treated to a bird’s-eye view of this new section, courtesy of the terraces and platforms.
