    What to Expect
    From the skyscrapers of Panama City to the impressive Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal, you’re introduced to the most famous attractions of the capital city on this city sightseeing hop-on hop-off tour. Your sightseeing tour begins at the Multicentro, but you can board the open-top double-decker bus at any of the stops along the route—using your 24- or 48-hour pass.

    Listen to interesting recorded commentary on the historical background of each sight; learn how the 50-mile-long (80-km) Panama Canal, first opened in 1914, transports ships from sea level to 85 feet (26 meters) via a series of gravity-powered locks. You can disembark at any stop to explore Panama City at your own pace.

    At the modern Multicentro, find plenty of local shops, restaurants, and cafés where you can try authentic Panamanian dishes (own expense). To explore even more shops and restaurants, stop at Isla Flamenco.

    We enjoyed our city tour. It gave us a chance to see the city and learn some of the history. My only issue is that they stop for an hour at Allbrook mall for their lunch time. We took advantage of this and purchased a hat and had ice cream. If you plan to see he Panama Canal,

    The bus was very very raggedy, and you could hear it wheezing and coughing trying to get up hills. One seat on the upper deck had a large iron bar sticking out. If you didn't pay attention. You could end up with a very serious injury when sitting down. The tour guides didn't

    We had a lot of fun but I absolutely cannot recommend this tour. There was zero narration in any language for the vast majority of the trip. It seems that there are two different buses. One of the buses has working headphones and does have narration. But the others do not. They

    ... based on many poor reviews, but eventually decided to go for it. Unfortunately, the closest stop from my hotel required a 20-min. walk. I consider myself a reasonably good walker, but between the oppressive heat, humidity, and bus fumes I had to stop after about 15 mins. I

    We opted for the two day pass. The first day we just stayed on the bus, listened to the tour points of interests and enjoyed the ride. This was about a two hour trip. We then decided where we wanted to spend our time getting on and off the bus the next day. Everything worked out
