PANAMA CitySightseeing has announced a new city tour of Panama.

Starting on February 1, the tour will provide breathtaking views of Panama City and an exciting, new view of the Panama Canal, all courtesy of its open top buses.

In 2011, Panama received over two million international visitors. Highlights of the capital of Panama include a city centre declared a Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO, in addition to the famous canal.

Enrique Ybarra, CEO of City Sightseeing Worldwide, said: “We are thrilled to announce the city of Panama as our first new tour in 2012. This is a sensational destination and we are sure it will be an equally great success, as the rest of our tours around the world.”

Alfredo Motta, the president of City Sightseeing Panama, added: “We have been working on the development of a tour in Panama for some time and at last we can announce the launch of City Sightseeing Panama. With support, expertise and our international relationships, we are certain of yet another great success.”

This is the tenth capital on the City Sightseeing map in the Americas, which already operates in Washington DC, New York, Hollywood / Los Angeles, San Antonio, San Francisco and Hawaii (USA), Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), Toronto (Canada) and Lima (Peru).
