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.

Omg!! Serena was an amazing human being!!! That woman was so friendly, fun and informative!! She made this trip so worth while!! My husband and I was blown away by how much she knew about Italian history!! She brought out my inner child when she told us about the Greek mythology of Italy! When we travel back to Italy we want Serena!! That lady deserves a raise! Wonderful experience!!!

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.

Everything good except too long waiting time for the bus to Anacapri

Michele catered to my family and was very knowledgable and funny.
