Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 475 reviews

Just did a 12 day trip around Italy going to Rome, Florence / Tuscany, and the Amalfi coast and this day trip to Capri was my favorite day of our entire vacation. The scenic views going around the island can't be missed -- Capri does not have one bad angle, and photos can't compare to seeing it with your very own eyes. The blue grotto add on was a unique bonus and an experience worth doing. The four hours to explore the island is a good chunk of time to get some activities in without feeling rushed. But bonding with the fellow travelers on the boat ride made the whole trip even better.

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.

Excelente actividad, todos son muy atentos. Las bebidas muy buenas y el sándwich excelente. Completamente recomendado. Nos encanto. El guía se merece un 10. Fue excelente.
