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 12 stops along the route — using your 24- or 48-hour pass.

Listen to interesting recorded commentary on the historical background of each sight; you’ll 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, you’ll 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 Flamingo.

Stops Include:
  1. Balboa Boutiques Plaza
  2. Parque Urraca
  3. Mi Pueblito
  4. Albrook Mall
  5. Miraflores Locks - Canal
  6. Biomuseum
  7. Punta Culebra

The tour was okay and I got a good overview of the city and the principal sites - the canal, Casco Viejo and Flamenco Island. Many of the stops aren't worthwhile. Why don't they publish the weekday and weekend schedules on the web? That would've...More
