“Great tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

I fell in love with beautiful Naples from the upper floor of this bus. It was the hop on and off variety with a ticket valid for 24 hours. However as we were on a cruise stopover we just did the full tour and took in the total beauty of the bay of Naples with the forbidding, yet strangely beautiful sight, of Vesuvius overlooking the bay. The commentary was informative and interesting and the route took in many breath-taking natural sights as well as lots of interesting and wonderful buildings. Definitely a must if you have a few hours to spare!!!

“Worth doing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

This HOHO tour is definitely worth doing. It only takes < 2 hours but gives you a nice view of the Sorrentine peninsula. With the bus only coming every two hours though, getting on and off doesn't seem like the best option. The fee is 12 Euros *unless* you have a 24 hour SITA bus ticket (the one that costs 7.60 euros) If you show that, the cost drops to 9 euros. (The same SITA ticket also entitles you to a free ride one way on the Amalfi-Ravello HOHO bus, saving 3 Euros again.)

When the bus arrives at the Sorrento Circumvesuviana station, there is no queue, just a small horde of people around the door. Try to be at the front! I was advised that the 1130 bus doesn't fill up as quickly as the 1:30 bus. They were right.

“Nice surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

We decided to take the hop on hop off bus on our last day in Sorrento, we didn't have anything else left to do - just to kill the time. It was a nice surprise - the bus was not only driving around Sorrento but also went to the village Massa Lubrense and to Termini - viewing point. The views from the route were amazing as it went up the hills around Sorrento. We stopped at Massa Lubrense and went down to the marina - it looked like we went back in time to 1950 - nice experience. The whole ride was very enjoyable - nice end to a great holiday.

“Peninsula Sightseeing with Citysightseeing Sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

Took the double decker bus tour of the Sorrento Peninsula with Citysightseeing Hop On, Hop Off tours. The tour is approximately 2 hrs. and goes 4 times a day at 9:30, 11:30, 1:30 & 3:30. Cost was 12 Euro and worth every penny. We had Breath taking views from on high of the city first, then a circular tour do the little villages and beautiful cliff top roads that make up the peninsula.
Tour starts at train station, buy tix on bus. You can get off at several points to walk around villages or lunch, then get on the next bus 2 or 4 hrs. later. Highly recommended.
