What people are saying about Piazzetta di Capri

What an amazing and stress free day trip. Sandra is AWESOME! As our guide, she met us right on time at the pick up location. We arrived at the port and she had everything set. When we arrived in Capri, she took us directly to the small boat ride that took us to the Blue Grotto. She was very informative and fun to talk to. She speaks 5 languages. I have lived in Italy 6 years and speak very little Italian, my wife is fluent in Italian, but it would not have mattered. Her English was perfect. She was very attentive to any and every need. The trip then took us to Anacapri where we had the most majestic views from the very top after a short lift ride. I was more impressed with Anacapri!! Lunch was included, good choices from the menu. She took us to the most majestic places for photos that were breathtaking. I definitely recommend this tour and our guide Sandra!! Sandra sei la numero 1 !

I had such an amazing time on this tour. As a solo female traveler, I instantly connected with my tour guide Tiziana- who is very kind, outgoing, respectful, and accommodating- and my group. We took a group boat tour of the island, had free time on one part of the island, went for group family dinner, and had free time on the other part (this part of the island has chair lifts that went to the top of a mountain- which also had a restaurant- just for 12 euros roundtrip, which I highly recommend for the great views). It was a great day making memories with new friends!

Capri is a very beautiful place but it is extremely busy. We were told it has 14k residents and in peak season can get 10k visitors a day visiting this small and quaint island. The guide, Tisiana, was excellent and worked well as the traffic delays moving around the island are very challenging. Chair lift to the mountain is a must and as you would expect, cafe prices are a premium. There are many ferries across and we perhaps would just ferry ourselves next time and use local taxis to get about.

Teresa was exceptional! English, Spanish, Italian amazing. A well organized and wonderful day from 8:00-6:00. Fantastic sites, walking and lunch. We included a special visit to the Blue Grotto as well. A perfect day!

Capri is amazing, incredibly beautiful and totally worth it. Sandra, the guide was really great, and fun to be around. Amazing. I totally recommend.
