What people are saying about Ischia

I thought this was a great way to spend the day. You get to see the entire island and you have a lot of time for swimming. When you're not swimming, you're either eating, drinking or traveling yo another swim spot. All the relevant places on Ischia are covered, ample time for swimming. I really do recommend that you bring something to cover up with as the sun is extremely strong. I got completely burnt despite wearing sunscreen. Chill crew, all around very chill day, really no complaints, the time was perfect for me. Definitely a great way to spend a day of your vacation

Capri and Anacapri beautiful! A good tour, very well organized by the EnjoyCapritour guys, without wasting time and without queues we enjoyed the day getting to know Capri, Anacapri and the Blue Grotto. Fabrizio's recommendations were very spot on. All very correct. I recommend them without hesitation!

Thank you very much for this day on the island of Capri. Organization at the top everything was linked very quickly including the blue cave. Special mention to the two very friendly fratello guides. Only regret not having spent more time in Anacapri. Capri is now over. But soon!

Awesome boat tour around both islands with a little bit of time on each to explore, see some key sights and get a bite to eat

This was amazing! Hospitality, food and adventure top notch! Would go again!
