What people are saying about Blue Grotto

I had one of those Murphy morning days were everything that could go wrong went wrong. Luckily this company made it a wonderful day. Once I found out that I was going to miss my boat to Capri, this company did everything they could to salvage my day. Long story short I missed the boat and wouldn’t make my tour. I called the company and they were very understanding and went above and beyond to get me to see the blue grotto and the tour of Capri by sea. They were not obligated to do it, but they did. That was very nice of them. So I definitely, whether jaded or not recommend this company not only for their efforts, but the beautiful tour that they managed to get me to. I thought everything was about the blue grotto, but actually, the tour was very much worth the price I paid and so much more. Beautiful views and also great relaxing experience. Highly recommend this company and tour. Beautiful scenery and great information provided. Thank you for making my day!

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!

Really had a lovely trip around Capri and also visited the blue grotto. The commentator was excellent thanks for a lovely tour

Capri is beautiful. Very easy to book being in Amalfi or in Positano or Naples…
