Was good seeing a few sites around town, unfortunately the places we were really keen on visiting Castel Nuova and the Catacombs of San Genarro were both closed that day.

Though the city is rather small these Hop-on Hop-off buses took us out to the coast so we could see a lot where it would have been too far to walk. It you timed it right you could ride at least two of the bus routes (there were 3) and see the town. You could stop a lot of places but that didn't give as good an overview. We stopped at couple places including the castle nuovo but used another day to visit the big museum which is easily accessible and needs at least a half day or more to see.

We did two of the Naples City Hop on Hop off Tours and loved every minute. The bus was comfortable and clean and the running commentary was very good. I also loved the italian music that was played between commentaries.

One down side: We could not find the place to pick up the bus. We walked up and down the Naples dock side, we asked people and even tried to flag down a Hop on Hop off bus and he gestured for us to go back a bit to the back of the castle. We eventually got on a bus and it was all wonderful.

Tour was itself definitely worth doing.

However, I cannot say the same for the information provided regarding the tour (The main tour starting point is not at Piazza Municipo, but to the right of Castel Nuovo-if you are facing the Castel Nuovo enterance. The green tour route only operates on the weekend, so we could only go on two of the three tour routes).

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.
