We chose the hop on, hop off tour of Sorrento peninsula NOT the coast-to-coast trips which receive such negative feedback. The cost was reasonable at E12 for adults and E6 for children (our 4 year old was free). Because it was forecast to be a hot day, we decided to take the first tour of the day as our sons wanted to sit on the upper deck. The bus was a few minutes late even at the second stop, but the traffic means that has to be expected.
We were given headphones for the audio tour and these worked fine. The commentary was clear and consistent. The views along the coast were stunning and we had a chance to get off for pictures at one stop, before hopping back on. Don't lose these - you don't get another pair if you get off during the trip and rejoin later! We rode a full cycle and then a partial route to get off at an interesting looking spot we had seen during the tour.
When it got too hot, my husband and sons went downstairs to enjoy the rest of the trip in air conditioned comfort.
The driver was considerate, slowing and pulling over a couple of times to allow built up traffic to pass. The only downside (and reason for not giving 5stars) was that on our second cycle, the driver was dropping a lady at various sites along our route a d waiting while she delivered things to the hotels. Some were scheduled stops and some weren't, so this became a nuisance. We got off at the 4th stop so I am not sure if this continued throughout the cycle. However, later in the day when we caught the bus back to the stop closest to our hotel, the driver spotted the lady walking along the road and pulled over to chat to her again!
Overall, I would recommend and the earphone commentary means people are not disturbed by the occasional chatter of other guests.
