Naples Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour: 24-Hour Ticket
- Duration: 3 hours
- Optional audio guide
This five-hour walking tour covered the key sites in Naples. The tour guide was informative and interesting. I felt bad for her having to give the tour in both English and Italian, especially because it was so long. She tried hard to please everyone on the tour. She did a great job. I booked the VIP tour for 8 people or less in English. As not enough people signed up for that tour, World Tours moved me to the dual language group tour of 14 and refunded the difference in price. I booked the tour the night before and they notified me at 7:30 am about that change to my 8:30 am tour. The tour took longer because the guide had to translate everything. One person even left the tour for that reason. While I am glad I did the tour, next time I will book a private or small group with another company that does not have any minimum tour size and conducts the tour only in one language to ensure that I get the tour I booked.
The two routes in Naples were very interesting and one got a good overview of the city. The only problem was to find the initial bus stop. The fact that there was construction on the piazza municipo did not help. But we should have received more specific instructions to find the main bus stop. This has been a problem with all our hop-on hop-off bookings this holiday in Palermo and Napoli. An area to improve.
If you’ve only got 24 hours (or less), THIS IS THE BEST THING TO DO! Especially if you’re travelling to Amalfi or Sorrento, but you still want to see Naples, you can leave your luggage at the Luggage Left at the airport and then you can book a later bus for your final destination (if you arrive early in the morning). Two thumbs up from me!
Most of the hop on hop off buses are good. The last bus I was on, the asst. spoke so close to the mic that everything was distorted. The others were good. It helps to get around town and see the most significant things.
La nostra guida, Alfredo, e'stato davvero eccezionale .. Simpatico e molto preparato. Ci ha fatto respirare l'aria di Napoli. Il tour ci ha permesso di saltare la lunga coda d'ingresso Alla Cappella San Severo.
