Took the hop on hop off. They failed to tell us it arrives around 10:20 at the terminal and every 45 minutes after. We waited over an hour for it. Don't buy your ticket on board ($44). It's $29 online but the people working the bus were only charging $25. I guess it was too hard to make change. The brochure on the bus said $29. It's a 2 hour round trip but probably better to cab it to the first stop (Old Town). Second stop would be downtown. Those 60 story buildings look impressive until you get up close and start seeing all the cracks in the foundations. The trip up to the locks is a waste of time. You're going through them anyway. It's $15 US for the visitors centre but you can get a "Restaurant Only Ticket" for free but the restaurant charges $44. Coming back down we managed to get past the ticket takers out on the the outdoor main floor patio where there was a reasonably priced snack bar. Read Less

Seeing the new locks and the canal up close a day before going through it made the passage experience much better. However, our guide was an anti-American who repeated herself over and over with useless information; we actually filed a formal complaint back on board. The sights were great, listening to her was awful. Read Less

Had difficulty understanding the guide. She missed opportunities to relate Panama City's history. Explanations were short. This was a Princess tour $70 US

I took a cruise here - rainforest canopy tram. It was fun, but I think the place we went needs a bit more improvement.
