What people are saying about Blue Grotto

Excellent day out. Michel, our guide on Capri was very helpful. Blue Grotto was closed due to weather, which was probably a good thing as the replacement boat tour around the island is probably a better experience although it really tested my not too good sea stomach! The very quick (25 minute) jet foil crossing also recommended. Great views from the top of the chair lift in Anacapri and nice lunch there too, not too expensive.

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

Everything was perfect, from the pick-up at the hotel by the partner in the morning, until the return. We just couldn't visit the Blue Grotto which was closed that day due to high tide, and this could affect our safety.

Absolutely worth every cent. Such an amazing experiment. Everything was well organised and Marco the tour guide was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable and funny. Will definitely do this tour again.

Well organised & kept us informed quickly when it had to be rescheduled due to bad weather. Good value for money
