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

We have done a lot of city tours and this was not high on our list. You could hardly hear the tour through the head phones they provided and there was no other interaction or person speaking. We wish we would have just spent the money on going to the places we knew we had an interest in.

I recommend do it, a good way to know the city and you may get out from the bus and go back during the day the ticket is valid, so you may stop at Centro Visitantes Miraflore, malls and Casco Viejo to visit them.

If you choose your times wisely, this would be a great choice. There is so much to see and do in Panama. However, we made the mistake of going around once and stopping at Albrook Mall. BIG mistake. There was not enough time to do any other stop afterward. I would do this again and bypass the mall; al hotels... More

Dear Sandy T, Thank you for comments and relating your experience on our buses. Indeed Albrook mall is huge and you can get lost in shopping inside so our best recommendations would be to hop off at the stops you are interested first and then stop at the mall and do your shopping, or if you ave enough time, you...

As usual the city sightseeing open top bus tours do exactly what it says on the tin. This tour took us to all the best sights around Panama and even went to the miraflores Panama Canal visitor centre, which we were considering doing as a separate tour - glad we didn't as this bus allowed us to see everything there...

We've used these buses in a few different places around the world and generally had a good time. When we saw that the Panama City version took in all the sights we wanted to visit we figured we'd utilise it again. Unfortunately, it turned out to be much worse than any other we've used. There are 2 buses that run... More

HOP ON HOP OFF City Sightseeing Panama is a wonderful way to see the city from "up high" and to visit several of the "prime" destinations."

We enjoyed the hop on hop off bus and being able to catch the bus in front of the Mall, It took us to the places we wanted to see including the canal and museum. An inexpensive way to see the city in a short period of time and short stay.
