What you'll do

Be ready to walk and eat a lot for this tour! Our day will start in the historic Casco Viejo neighborhood where we will do a quick walk around of important sites and we'll visit one of my favorite restaurants that's taking Panamanian cuisine to the next level to sample a few of their creative dishes.

From here we will get off the beaten path and head to the super local Santa Ana neighborhood to see vibrant street art and walk down Panama City's only pedestrian avenue.

Then for sunset, we will be on a rooftop bar sipping on cocktails and eating ceviche while watching the sun go down over the city.

Next,​ we are going to use​ public transport in Panama City and ride the underground metro to the city center to have the best street empanadas.

For our last stop, we can either visit a local coffee shop to sample Geisha, the world's most expensive coffee or visit a local craft beer brewery based on what the group prefers.

*Note: This is a sample itinerary​, and stops may be different based on what's open for the day, special requests from the group, or dietary restrictions.

I’m Joey, an expat and local blogger of the website ptylife.com 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. Consider me your new friend in Panama that’s here to help you discover the secrets of the city.

This was my first AirBnB experience and it couldn’t have been better. My original plans got ruined and I was scrambling to find something to do in Panama City and this tour was definitely a highlight. Joey took us to so many great places and we learned so much about the city. We did things that I likely wouldn’t have done or known about, or been able to find without him. He even let us tell him what we wanted to see which made the tour feel more personalized. He goes above and beyond and it is clear that he loves what he does. I highly recommend this tour for everyone, especially solo travelers like myself.

Joey was an amazing host, he led us through parts of the city we would not have ventured to otherwise and shared with us some very delicious food. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Was a great food tour. Joey knows the good places to dine at - I am not a seafood fan and I enjoyed both seafood (fish) dishes that we had. Good amount of walking as well and the rooftop cocktails during sunset were phenomenal! I would recommend this food tour to anyone.

Joey was an awesome tour guide of the city. He showed us places in the city that we would have never found ourselves. His food choices were so good and really helped showcase the local cuisine. He took time to answer any questions and gave us tips for places to visit. Finally he took pictures of us and gave us each personalized post cards as a keep sake! I would recommend Joey 100% Next time we travel we will have to look him up in Columbia!
