Historic Panama Railway Tour Tops List of New Excursions

Panama Railway Tour

Ocean to Ocean by Railway tour brings back historic Panama Canal travel!

Railway buffs rejoice! Panama Excursions has added the scenic Ocean to Ocean by Railway tour – to its series of tours for the 2012-13 cruise season. This excursion is along the historic 19th Century ocean-to-ocean railway link preceded the opening of the Panama Canal.

“Everyone loves a railway,” says Henry Josephs, Director of Operations for Panama. “This tour has quickly become one of our most popular Panama excursions for both cruise passengers and anyone looking for something new to do in Panama.”

This scenic Panama Railway tour, led by a bilingual guide, takes guests on a scenic, one hour ride aboard the recently restored Panama Canal Railway. Beginning in Cristobal on the Atlantic coast and running southeast to Balboa on the Pacific side (or vise versa), guests enjoy panoramic views of the busy Panama Canal as the train hugs its side for most of the journey. The train also crosses Gatun Lake by way of small islands and trestle bridges, and cuts through lush, tropical jungle.

Panama Canal Railway

Originally built in 1855, the Panama Canal Railway, the northern hemisphere’s first transcontinental railroad, was rebuilt in 1909 during the construction of the Panama Canal to continue providing a vital link between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. It’s most recent reconstruction was completed in 2001, allowing the Panama Rail Company to again carry passengers. The rail cars are elegant, beautifully refurbished and air conditioned, bringing back the opulence of historic railway travel with modern 21st Century conveniences.

Ocean to Ocean by Panama Railway

In addition to the rail excursion, guests are taken on a guided tour of the Gatun Locks, one of three sets of locks that make up the Panama Canal. While the entire canal is in the process of being widened to allow for larger, modern vessels to transit, the Gatun Locks still evoke the historic aspects of their early 20th Century construction.

The Ocean to Ocean by Railway tour starts at $125 USD per person. For more information on our other panama shore excursions, visit Panama Excursions at Rainforest Adventures or give our office a call 1-866-759-8726! Book online now and enjoy your ride!

Rainforest Adventures Panama Receives a Princess Cruise Port Excursion Award

Panama Excursions - Authentic Indian Village Tour
The cruise awards just keep coming. We are so pleased to announce that our authentic Embera Native Village Tour from Panama Excursions has won the Low Volume Tour of the Season award from Princess Cruises.

“This is a really spectacular adventure that takes our guests from the city into a true native experience. It’s close enough to be accessible in one day and yet it takes you back in time”, says Henry Josephs, our director of operations at Panama Excursions. Guests are taken on a (motorized) dugout canoe up the Chagres River to an authentic Embera/Wounaan native village. “This is not a village set up for tourists”, says Josephs. “This is their home and we are their guests.” A typical Panama shore tour would include a traditional greeting, Wounaan basket demonstration, music and a meal of locally available produce and fish.
Embera and Wuonaan Indian Tribes in Panama

The Embera and Wounaan tribes are considered the guardians of the rainforest. They have lived in their traditional territories in the DariƩn forest region between Panama and Colombia for thousands of years. This is a unique experience.

Arthur Wagner: Best Panama Shore Tour Guide

Our Panama shore excursions guide, Arthur Wagner wins the prestigious Guide of the Year award!

RFA Panama Excursion Tour Guides
We always knew we had an amazing staff at our parks but it sure feels nice to get recognized. Arthur Wagner has been awarded the Princess Cruise lines award for Guide of the Year for 2012, and he has won it for the past three years in a row!

We have been offering Panama canal zone tours for Princess Cruise lines for a long time now and have always enjoyed it when their guests participate in our shore activities. Most of our tours are quite laid back, but tours led by Arthur have a whole different feel!

Panama Canal Tours
“Drop and give me 20!” is one of the favorite phrases our tour guide uses. If you think this seems like odd behavior for a guide then you are absolutely right; Arthur is no average guide. Having served in the US military, stationed in Panama in 1990, Arthur brings a unique perspective to guiding canal zone tours that complements his local knowledge. “We have lots of veterans on our tours and I think one of the reasons Arthur keeps winning this award is because people can relate to him. Our guests love his over the top personality, sense of humor and his ability to teach unique points gathered from his years of experience.” Says Henry Josephs, director of operations for Panama Excursions.

We are very proud of Arthur for winning his third consecutive guide of the year award! Congrats Arthur!
