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!

I liked the Geography of the Tour, there could be a few more stops. the usual problem with these tour buses a good portion of the headphone jacks did not work, luckily there weren't many people on board. the buses were clean and on time, this was a miracle considering Panama City traffic. I bought this tour twice. The first one was the 2 day tour, which included the Night Tour. After I bought the ticket I was told there was no night tour. Viator needs to take this tour out of their advertising. The best Tour is the Canal Tour. The City Tour covers all the same stops in the city as the Canal Tour except the MultiPlaza stop. I would suggest taking the Canal Tour first, as the City Tour is much shorter.

We enjoyed it ,it was very informitive, It was good to walk around the old city, then we visited the main city where we had lunch, we then toured the "MIRAFLORA LOCKS"
this was excellent, especially the displays and the lock "SIMULATOR". Then the trip back to the port. A full day Good Value! Michael.

We enjoyed the tour very much and would recommend it to all. Only comment would be that on one leg the narration was not loud enough. Would recommend that you bring your own earphones.

It could have been a great experience and fulfill my expectations, BUT, I totally understand that there can be bus delays because of the traffic but not the bus leaving earlier than the schedule. We were drop off at the canal and the bus staff said we will be here in an hour, 1:55pm. We made our visit at the cana calculating to be at the bus stop 10 minutes prior the scheduled pick up. Some of the other passengers that made the tour with us were also there waiting for the bus. To our surprise, and under the hot weather of Panama, a person that was there said,the bus came earlier and left because nobody was here, now you have to wait one hour for the next bus. Pay to suffer. And we had to pay a taxi to go to the next place we wanted to visit because the bus driver decided to leave earlier!!!!!

the staffs are nice....it's extremely hard to find the spot at the first time. The voucher from Viator lead us to the wrong place: it turn out that day there was no bus in Multiplaza.

Despite various phone calls to the so called "English" speaking operator and after wasting an hour the tour was fine once we found out where it started from, but by then we'd list half the day!

This could have been fabulous BUT the earphones on the lower level did not work and the young men accompanying the tour on some legs of the journey were uninformed and more interested in chatting amongst themselves and joking with the driver than helping out the tourists.

Pick up location of the door was very hard to find. Tour itself was very good.

This was the worst hop on hop off bus tour I have ever been on. For one thing none of the bus drivers or agent spoke any sort of English. Working in Tourism you must know how to speak English. The only stop on this bus that is worth it is at the Panama Canal, Other than that this bus doesn't stop at

Long waits for buses, at the canal ships finally went through at 3:50 but there were no more buses until long after the canal center was closed. We ended up getting a taxi back to our hotel.
