I think that this is the best way to see Panama and with the best price of $35US. The full tour takes 2hrs. The sight seeing bus is double decker and it stops at 7 places. You can hop off and the next bus you can hop on. They give you 48hrs to stop and see which is great. You... More

Contrary to some other reviews we found the service to be right on time and reliable. However, in agreement with many other reviews the narration could not be heard over the street noise, bus noise and wind blowing past ears. Cannot understand why they don't use ear buds like every other Hop On in the world. In addition some of... More

Based on various reviews the bus looked a poor option however we found it worked out OK. They provided a free pick-up service from the hotel which arrived on time. The bus ran to a reasonable time-table and arrived and left as expected. The staff were OK although there was no audio system and we had to rely on a... More

I usually love HoHo busses and take them as a way to learn about a new city. This was the first time I felt I could have done much better on my own. There are only seven stops on the route. And there are only two busses running. so the wait between stops is an hour, sometimes more. Two of... More

Any connection between timetables and the time they actually 'May' turn up is pure fiction. Finally gave up waiting after 30 minutes and caught a cab to next attraction. So much time wasted just waiting for bus, that it is better to use a taxi (and negotiate price) or use Uber. Would not recommend this service.

the tour was very good. Overall, we hada total of 9 people in our group (including ourselves) so it made the tour feel very personalized. The tour included all the major sites of the Panama City, including the Canal and Casco Viejo. Our tour guide was very knowlegeable and descriptive about the sights and locations. Overall, it was a GREAT... More

Tour was worth while for a first time visitor. As others have said you get an understanding of the layout of the city. Start early and save time for the walking tour of the colonial city of Panama. The cold water they sold on the bus was great. However, only gave it a three because of the poor sound quality... More

Easy way to see the city and tourist locations. Similar to most bus tours in other parts of the world. Basic and functional.

Mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, very useful as a means to get a quick overview of the city and especially to reach the Panama Canal. Also, very helpful bus staff who dropped us off at an advantageous point. However, less impressed by: - The route and the day schedule were cut short because of carnival taking... More

Good afternoon, Sorry if you had a bad experience with us. Referring to change the route for carnival and not announce it in advance. The police closed many more streets than we were informed, which forced us at the last moment to change everything without planning. The bus can only pass through streets that do not have the electric cables... More

Online they indicated both a city route and canal route, but only listed the stops for the latter. I emailed them and twice corporate said waiting on a reply from local Panama operator. I bought the 48 hour ticket so thus the low rating. Only got half my ticket in goods. So, we did the canal route. You can get... More
