Tour was amazing and very helpful staff!
Amazing way to explore the city
Excellent, everything was great, time, places, etc., just amazing.
Boat tour Was fabulous Our tour guide was charming he knew everything about the canal and had a wonderful personality. he spoke in English and Spanish it was a very enjoyable tour The bus pick up from the hotel went smooth as well over all the tour of the Panama Canal was the highlight of our vac
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.
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.
