Our tour guide was easy to find and really knowledgable and friendly. We had headsets so we could hear her at all times when the streets were busy. The tour was a great mix of history, street art, funny customs and traditions and how Neapolitans live. We got some recommendations for the rest of our trip too. You don’t walk too far in distance so good for anyone who struggles walking. Knocked off 1 star as the description is misleading - the tour was meant to include a coffee and free gift for each person. We didn’t book the tour for this reason but it shouldn’t be listed in the description if it isn’t included.

I swore I would write him a fabulous review - and I am - but I’ve forgotten his name…. Uffa. It was an interesting tour with an excellent guide. I like a bit of off-history and off-beat information and back street walks. This tour hit all the right notes. If you’re lucky, you’ll get xxxxxx as your guide. He’s been a guide for 20 years and has 2 children and a wife. That’s all I remember. Sorry.
