You receive a confirmation voucher by email within 72 hours. Your voucher includes local contact information and may include specific instructions about your tour. You should print your voucher and take it with you when you meet with the tour guide, driver or check into your hotel. Almost all the tours must be booked in advance but the Hop-on-Hop-Off tours can be booked on the same day as your tour. There are cancelation fees ranging from 5% to 100% depending how close to the tour date you cancel.
The Panama City Hop-on-Hop-Off Tour takes you on a double-decker, open-top bus passed the most famous sites in the city. You can hop on and off as many times as you please at your own pace during the time period you have chosen – 24 hours, 48 hours or 72 hours.
The bus travels in a loop starting at Multicentro Mall at 9am with the last departure at 4:30pm. The entire loop passed all the attractions takes 45 minutes. The bus route stops at Multicentro Mall, Urraca Park, Albrook Mall, the City of Knowledge, Panama Canal, Bio Museum, Flamenco Island, doubles back passed the Bio Museum and into the Historical Center. While on board you can listen to a commentary in English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese or German.
For families this is an easy, convenient and not too expansive way to get around the city. No need to catch taxis, rent cars, wait in line for public transport buses or navigate the Panama City roads. Kids will enjoy the fact that it is a double-decker bus and that there is a commentary.
The buses are wheelchair accessible so although the website doesn’t specifically say so it is probably stroller accessible as well. Note that the price for kids is the same whether you book the 24 hour, 48 hour or the 72 hour bus tour and under 3 year olds travel for free.
Hop-on-Hop-Off Panama City Tour Cancelation Policy: Free cancelation up to 8 days prior to the tour; 20% (of tour price) cancelation fee 4-7 days prior to the date of tour and 100% cancelation fee less than 4 days before the date of booked tour.
