What people are saying about Gardens of Augustus, Capri

Everything went smoothly. There was not a lot of free time, which was the right amount in my opinion, as I see no way to do something productive in the island outside of the attractions, which were included. The guide also informed us what was recommendable during the free time so that was very convenient. Villa San Michelle is a must visit for everyone who read the Munthe's book and a mustn't visit for those who didn't. The guide Serena was very warm person and gave not too much and not too little information about the historical significance of the island. That I also liked. Not too much unnecessary precision about the dates just the general understanding which historically known people liked the island and why. I'd say that this Tour is suitable for those who are not to keen on having a lot of free time in the middle of tours to mindlessly wander around. P.S. take the boat trip for additional 19 Eur around the island. Serena will inform you how to take it.

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!!!

The organisational part worked pretty smooth - we received a whatsapp message day before including a pic of the meeting point. ( Only confusing part was it was send by a woman and our guide was a man - so we searched for the wrong face ;). However all worked smooth, boat & places, Capri and Anacapri, blue grotto ... was a lovely day in south of Italy.

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

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