Enjoyed this tour, cyclingling through the crazy streets of Naples, our guide was great and kept us safe and close to him whilst navigating the streets, we chose to pay the extra and went for electric bikes, which were great and effortless meaning we could go up the hills with ease to see some amazing views of the city
