    A complete load of rubish from the start. Two Ladies wandering about trying to catch the attention of people who booked with Viator. There was not enough information on the hazards of this fiasco of a trip.Nothing professional about the the guides who where waving a piece of paper with Viator scribbled on it. The Blue Grotto took all of 5 minuets in a small boat after standing for such a long time in the baking hot sun. I would not recommend this Tour, at least not with Viator.

    This tour is not worth the price paid for. The so-called Port Pick up/drop off is basically figuring out your own way to the ticketing office for the ferry to Capri island and then arrange your own transport back to the cruise ship after the tour. For my experience, we had to walk 20min from our ship to the meeting point in hot summer heat. All the guide did for us was purchasing ferry tickets for the entire tour group while we waited by the ticketing office. We could've done this ourselves.
    Also the stated shared transport and minibus are literally the island's public transportation available for anyone to hop on/off for 2 Euros each person. Our tour group was on the bus with other tourists in the area. In retrospect, I could've saved lots of money for my family by just utilizing the well established public transportation on the island and set my own itinerary rather than join the tour. The tour added no value, there was no advantage at any of the queue lines (still had to wait in line with everybody else for the ferry, chair lift, blue grotto boat, funicular ride), and there's a lot of waiting around for other people in the group as well. There's guarantee to get you back to the cruise on time alright, because they'll just cut the itinerary short and leave the island early to get you back. So save yourself money and skip the tour.

    The tour was wonderful and Marcella made it that way. She was very knowledgable about the history surrounding the beautiful island and planning our free time to get the most out of the tour. We were able to go to the Blue Grotto and took a different navigation than everyone else which was much more efficient - we were in and out of the Blue Grotto. Highly recommend.

    Great tour with Francesco! Highly recommend the Seggovia chair lift and the walk to the garden for great views. Fun fun day

    I found this tour to be absolutely worth the price. It was a lovely tour of the island, amazing sights and we were able to get into the Blue Grotto. A once in a lifetime experience!

  • Marc Davis

    We stayed in Naples and took the tour to Capri! We thought it was going to be easier to hop on a ferry and go ourselves, but our tour guide made the trip more worth the value! We were able to get to a lot of the hot spots from listening to her guidance! Capri itself is a beautiful Island and a must see!

  • gparikh

    This tour guide was very thorough and planned well. We went to different places while there was no rush and not hot and cut out the long lines. Well planned. Even though we could not go INSIDE the grotto due to waves and clearance issues of the grotto walls, we were given a tour of the entire coastline from the boat. The guide was knowledgeable and very informative. Medium size group and all the events were organized, walking, boat and bus. I recommend this tour company.

    The whole experience was excellent! From the proximity of taking the go-fast boat to Capri, to the patience and knowledge from our guide Michele. The wait at the grotto was well worth it and a must do.

  • Crystal H

    Great tour! I asked if I could get picked up in Naples and dropped off in Sorrento, and they accommodated me easily. Went from Naples to Blue Grotto to Anacapri to Capri, with time to enjoy the things I wanted to San Michele with its beautiful floor, the chair lift to the top of the hill, lemon product sampling, gardens, eating was all very chill and pleasant with Michele as our guide. If it had been impossible to visit the Blue Grotto, the alternative boat ride still sounded stellar with a potential other grotto (Green Grotto maybe?) and going through the iconic Capri rocks, so remain flexible and I believe you'll be happy no matter what. Grazie, ragazzi!

    Overall, this was one of my favorite tours that we did on our cruise! We were extremely fortunate that Mother Nature cooperated and the weather was perfect for us to do the Blue Grotto that day! What an incredible experience! Our tour guide was also a HUGE help with this process because he knew we had to hurry to get there before the lines got too long and he was right! For our tour group of 12, it took us less than an hour to wait, go into the cave, and meet back in the bus! Typical wait is at least 2-3 hours just in line if you aren’t there first thing in the morning! Then he took us to Anacapri which is actually his hometown and explained all of the different places we can go and do in the time we have! Never felt rushed for a second and he recommended places to eat and gave the restaurants heads up we were coming so we did not have to wait! Then we went to Capri itself which is a lot busier than Anacapri, but he essentially cut us lose for an hour or so and established easy meet up points. Finally he gave us our boat tickets and we were back to the Port of Naples, no problem! Highly recommend to everyone that wants to see the Blue Grotto/Capri!
