Red bus city on/off tour

Informative, but would like to see buses more frequent. Guide was informative and English was available.

I've don these hop on hop off tours in many cities. This was one of the worst. Basically stopped a Malls and during the excursion, no tour guide info was given. The headphones were not working. So basically, an expensive bus ride. My last stop at the Panama Canal was really messed up. They had a bus problem on another... More

No information , guides did were not fluent in English and there was no where near enough information on places of interest . No access to a recorded commentary . So disappointing when have used hop on hop off all over Europe !! We had three different guides and same story in every bus .

Took two of their buses, and neither provided head phones. The staff below tried to provide some commentary, but it was both inaudible and loud, taking from the atmosphere. What I could hear seemed fairly irrelevant re: the history and culture of Panama. All in all, bit of an expensive let down, especially after having used the same company in... More

We are very sorry about your bad experience. I hope you give us a second chance in the future since we are inventing in a new audio system to give a better service. Unfortunatly the weather in Panama affects the equipment with the humidity, reason why we have the guides give the tour at the moment. Best regards. More

For $29 this is a good deal to get around the city. The sound system is a joke. The head set hook ups don't work. The speaker system is impossible to hear on the lower lever because of the bus noise and riders talking, the upper level speakers are also tough to hear. Buses do tend to run late because... More

It is a stress free way to travel to the major sites, the highlights of which were the Miraflores lock and the old city. The commentary rarely worked. The problem was the buses, not the earphones. The bus stopped at each site at one hour intervals, so we were either rushing or waiting a long time. The bus stops were... More

I wish we would do it our first day, we would get better idea how to plan our 2.5 days in Panama City. That was the best value for me, quick town overview. The guide value was somewhat limited. I did the loop twice. One bus was using recordings (English and Spanish), second bus had a live guide. Her English... More

Don't waste your time on this tour. To begin for most of the journey, the bus did not have headphones so the commentary was very limited. When there were headphones available, most of them did not work. It would be easier and probably more economical to hire an Uber to take you around the city. Then you could choose to... More

Our sincere apologies for your bad experience. Unfortunately we had technical problems with the audio. If you ever return to Panama please contact us to give us a second chance. Regarding the Uber service I recommend its use at night and in the day it would be more economical to use us, as we have 9 to 12 stops, depending... More

Panama city has heavy traffic congestion at times. To truly experience Panama some transportation is necessary. So instead of taking cabs everywhere use the this. Get you to the Canal, the Amador Causeway and other spread out sites. You will save money and see the area
