my experience with the hop-on hop-off tour bus is awesome. Its a great way to see any country/world city. The luxury of been able to get off and get on at any given hour is great.
I would and have recommended to co-workers that are planning to travel out of the USA. I rate it an A.

My next trip out of the country, hopefully, hop-on hop-off is available there.

Very good way to get acquainted with the city. We rode both tour lines beginning with the city line and ending with the canal line. The canal line buses were running behind schedule due to heavy traffic, but the wait wasn't too long. Also some problems with the earphones not working depending on the bus you were on. Otherwise very enjoyable.

A great way to see the sights in Panama City. The staff are helpful. The buses run about 10-15 minutes late but you cannot count on it, so lots of waiting at the stop for the bus to arrive. The city route stops at 4 pm so it you are going to use it to return to the hotels, you need to be on the 3 o'clock Canal route back to Metrocentro. Just takes some advance planning. Traffic in PC is hectic so this is definitely the way to go!
