Unfortunately the instructions on where to get on the hop on hop off bus were incorrect. This caused me to lose time and not being able to see all the sights I wanted. Your instructions said I could pick it up at Piazza Municipio when actually it was at the castle around the corner and down the street. Also I stood in line to turn in my voucher to be told I would turn it in on the bus, I stood in line for the bus and the door was closed in front of me as it was full. I then had to wait for 20 more minutes for the next bus. In all I lost about an hour of time. Had I not already paid for this I would have left. I am not happy I did not get to see anything but the museum.
The commentary was good with authentic music whilst riding around the streets of Naples. However we decided to get off at the archeological museum and worked out the time the next bus would arrive to continue on our tour. No bus arrived so we waited another 45 minutes for the next one and still no bus! We finally got a taxi back to the castle at the cost of ten euros in order to get on another tour. Due to the delay we only managed two of the three tours on offer.
I did not care for this tour at all. The city was very dirty and I did not feel safe to walk around and explore. We also Googlemapped to find where the starting poing was (Piazza Municipal) and was very confused. The starting point was Castle Nuovo (the one in the picture) and we had to take a cab from the train station to get there. We had carefully planned out our train ride times from Rome to Naples to make it to the tour when it first started, only to find out they totally changed the times listed on Viator. So DON'T go by this!! I would not recommend this tour to anyone.
