Very detailed trip, with stops in beautiful places along the coast and the island of Capri, with detailed information from Rafaele Andrea and the boat pilot. On board drinks, snacks and a good sandwich. Transfer to the hotel, something necessary in the area because parking is difficult and expensive (transfers included). I had to make some changes and the company of ten, I play very correct. Highly recommended

My friend and I had the most amazing experience with this boat trip tour. All of the staff was so helpful, friendly, and trust-worthy. We felt so comfortable and safe as two 22 year old girls traveling alone. The boat tour had about 5 other couples on board who were sweet. They provided drinks, snacks, and helpful information about the islands. 10/10 recommend
