    Michael was absolutely amazing. He even called the airport for me as my luggage was lost and translated for me. Our group had nine persons and we all enjoyed one another’s company.

    We left from Sorrento's pier on 3/29 - spent an enjoyable day checking out both Capri and AntiCapri with a great tour guide. Since the Blue Grotto wasn't open that day took a boat tour around the island and saw all the other grottos, which was awesome. Great ending to our holiday in Italy!

    Already in the end of March it felt crowded.
    However, our guide really managed to make the best of the situation.
    The relatively small size of our group (9 persons) was also a good thing.
    Weather did not permit visiting the Blue Grotto, but the alternate boat trip around the island was very nice.
    Amazing manoeuvres by the boat driver!

    Luigi was fantastic! He was friendly, informative, energetic and fun to be around. We had beautiful weather. Despite the Blue Grotto being closed, we were able to take a tour around the island to see the White and Green Grottos. We’d recommend this as a fun day!

    Although I would like to keep this a secret, as a passionate traveler, I want other travelers to know: This trip was amazing. We were not able to go under the Blue Grotto because of the ocean swells, but the guide took us around the island and that was much better. Anyone with the time to take this day trip should do it. Excellent guide and services.

    Our worries about doing this in December proved unfounded. We were met at ticket booth for the fast ferry. Weather was great but since we were the only two going we travelled to Capri and met guide Marco and two others coming from Sorrento. Tides did not allow blue grotto tour but we instead circled the island, visiting other grottos, the arch and the lighthouse. Then up to Anacapri and lunch before taking the chairlift to the top. Walking tour of Capri and then down the funicular and back to the return ferry.Great day, highly recommended.

    Was a lovely tour - the guide was waiting for us right outside our ship and as we were all early, he fast-tracked us onto an earlier ferry - everything went smoothly, because of the huge line up of boats to get into the Blue Grotto, he had the bus take us to a different location close to the caves so we just had to walk down a few steps to the mouth of the caves and the row boats came to us and we got right in. Had lots of time for eating, shopping and finishing the tour - even chose to go for a swim in the sea prior to catching the ferry back to our ship. Highly recommend the tour.

    We had a lovely day in Capri. Brunella was our guide. She was fantastic and was very knowledgeable about the area and spoke perfect English. You could tell that she loves what she does. Every thing was perfect on our tour and the buses were right there and Brunella knew the best places to eat. She even made reservations at the restaurant. I wished we were able to go to the Blue Grotto, but the island tour was just as good, as we got to see quite a lot. (You can't change Mother Nature). I also found it to be a good value for the money, because all the ticket fees were included and you don't have to think of nothing, it is already done for you. I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks Brunella for being happy and smiling.

    I was a bit apprehensive at the time of booking at this is an expensive tour, but it ended up being one of the best day trips ever. It was a small group tour and guide Michele managed the whole day's program very well and helped us stay ahead of the crowds. It started with the hydrofoil ride to Capri and then the trip straight to the very top of Monte Solaro. The weather was great and from there I could witness some of the most breathtaking views ever. I could have spent the whole day there staring at the various shades of blue, but well, we had other attractions to cover. So I took the chair lift down and after lunch proceeded to other viewpoints of Capri like the gardens of Augustus. It was very windy, so the blue grotto tour could not be done and we went for the boat trip around the island instead. At the end I was sad having to leave that beautiful island and determined to comeback some day.

    This is a pretty basic tour, nothing over the top. We got our boat tickets taken care of, buses were arranged to take us around the island, and the tour guide, Brunella, was very nice, but the lunch spot she took us to was not that great, it was overpriced and not that good tasting. She took us to a shop to taste limoncello but it was meant to get us to buy things, which both my brother and I did.
