The whole day was well organised and our Tour Guide, Maria, was exceptionally good. If you do your homework on visiting Capri, you will know that thousands visit every day. We were driven to Nerano and taken on a beautiful boat to Capri. We took the tour advice and decided to use their exclusive Minibus tour. This meant we got to spend about 90 minutes in Capri and 3 hours in AnaCapri without having to worry about missing ferries etc. The additional €22 pp cost was well worth it when you consider that going up and down on the public buses (if you can get on them) would set you back €15. We also spent another €12pp on the chairlift which was amazing (this from someone who hates heights). The boat tour round the island at the end of the day was the perfect end. I cannot fault this experience and would highly recommend it to anyone. Remember also the Blue Grotto experience only usually runs about 150-160 days a year so there are no guarantees. Glad we didn’t bother

Would highly recommend this boat tour! We got picked up from our hotel in Amalfi and taking to the port in Sorrento where we departed on our boat and headed to Capri. The boat was very spacious and immaculately clean. We were taking around the Island of Capri and was given a guided tour of the caves before mooring up at the Island. I would recommend getting the semi-private bus on the island (only costs €15 pp) as it gives you the most free time to enjoy the Island. We were giving refreshments and lunch on board the boat and we then taken around the other side of the island before heading back to Sorrento where we picked up by the taxi driver and dropped off back to the hotel. Overall it was an amazing, once in a lifetime experience, and also great value for money. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that is considering doing it!

Our Capri trip was outstanding. Our guide Maria was fantastic she was so helpful. I had done quite a but of research before booking and this tour did not disappoint. It provided a good amount of time on Capri and better still Anacapri, a boat tour around the island as well as hotel pick up and drop off. Maria was great at pointing out all we needed to know. The boat was very comfortable a good size no one felt seasick. I cannot recommend highly enough ☆☆☆☆☆

I could not recommend this trip more. Everything about it was fabulous. Maria our guide was very informative and professional. The guys on the boat trip were fun and engaging. Very good value for money, excellent service fun day out in Capri. Much better value than our other TUI trips. Dont hesitate to book with Getyourguide

Simply spectacular, the crew were all excellent, very friendly, they spoke Spanish, the tour was speechless, they always gave it their Ramantic touch, it really is worth doing.
