What people are saying about Castel Nuovo

I had always wanted to tick off one thing from my bucket list and that was ride a Vespa in the city of Naples. NapolinVespa Tour made this happen and they pulled it off effortlessly. Vincenzo was my guide and what can I say? He made it very personable! We soaked in the city discussing culture, history and how these aspects shaped the city... I recommend you take this excursion if you are serious and willing to learn! The Vespa itself was beautiful and I managed to get the typical postcard picture of myself with the beautiful vista of Naples behind me.. I recommend that you don't hesitate and book this. It will be very memorable...

Just a brilliant vespa tour of Naples with lovely friendly guides.

Our guided tour has been such good fun! Our friendly guides met us at the hotel then took us on a great tour of lots of different parts of the city - all from the back of our vespas. We saw so much and really enjoyed being able to chat and also stop off for a superb coffee along the way. We visited some of the most famous sights but also had time to wander through the little alleys and side streets and see areas outside the city centre. Great!

Thanks to Vicenzo for - His kindness, his good humor, his passion for his region and his job, his perfectly understandable English and his culture - His efficient driving - Everything he showed me around and the free time he granted me so that I could come back to what interested me the most - His way of having returned without embarrassment to feel the physical proximity due to the use of a Vespa Grazie ancora!

Wonderful tour that really made you feel like you weren't missing out delivered by friendly and consummate professionals!
