Overall rating

Both tours are great, but especially B. You see the city and coast of Naples and get a completely different impression of the rather dirty city. The fact that you can hop on and off makes the trip all the more worthwhile. Because you are much more flexible than with the rather moderately developed public transport network in Naples.

The blue line was great. Great views, beautiful coastal breezes. We did not enjoy the redline. There was very little to see. You could use it as a bus service if you needed to get around town.

Travelling both Red and Blue lines already covered the whole island. It’s worth to join.

The tour was very fun. We got to see Napoli from different sides and up close.

Very funny. A different way of getting to know the city
