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.
Other things to note
You must be able to walk around 4-miles during the tour. Please also notify me of any allergies or things you don't eat (vegetarian for example).

11 out of 10 stars, definitely recommend. Joey is amazing and his tour was the perfect compliment. Given it’s still pandemic times, Joey was able to move/shift and not only take our group to super tasty spots but also show us many others that we have to try (I’m definitely coming back because there is no way I’ll get through my list). I would recommend anyone take this tour who is looking to have great food/drink and even better company. P.S. I was able to meet some cool people during the tour, and we ended up hanging out the duration on my trip. So much fun!

This was an amazing experience. It was above expectations. The food was great and we were even full before the tour ended. The portion sizes were more than expected and well worth the price. The history about the area and culture were interesting and informative. Overall a great experience. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Panama for the first time. You won’t regret! Thanks Joey.

This was the perfect way to get acquainted with the city—especially the food scene! It’s the perfect blend of neighborhoods, exploring the area and trying local bites. Joey is super thoughtful and an excellent communicator. He adds a personal touch that makes it feel more like friends hanging out than a tour. Just a perfect evening.

Joye is an excellent host and very kind and caring person! He is a delight! The tour itself was great - fun stroll with food and coffee tasting. Spectacular views of sunset and the City from the rooftop. Joye went above and beyond to provide us with some additional info even after the tour. This tour was hands down a highlight of our three days stay in Panama City. 100% recommend! Thank you Joye! We really hope to see you again!
