We loved the boat tour to Capri! It was the highlight of our trip. We were staying in Positano and were worried about the logistics of getting to the Sorrento docks in the morning. The team sent a bus to pick up all the passengers who were staying in Positano. The boat was not too crowded so even though it wasn't a "private" boat, we still felt like we had our own space and were able to make memories / take photos that looked like we were on a private boat. Additionally, the host and captain were incredible! Francesca taught us a lot about Capri and also had snacks/Prosecco/wine/beer/water and lunch for us! She was friendly, very personable and even took a few photos for us. Our captain was also really impressive - he was able to maneuver the boat into the grottos so that both the front and back of the boat got every experience. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone!

This was a great trip! Everything was right on time from the pick up in Positano to the return home. Our captain and first mate were excellent ! I wish I could remember their names. It was the perfect amount of time on the water and on the Island of Capri. We were served champagne, snacks, sandwiches and limoncello!!!!!! Couldn’t ask for any more or better company! Thank you for making this trip so much fun! Kim & Harold

Run, don't walk to book the trip! It is life changing!! Firstly the vans that come and drive you to Sorrento are so comfortable, clean and the drive is a pleasure. Next they take you to their office to pay the docking fees €5. It is by the dock and you are grouped with other people and introduced to your guide - our was the loveliest LUISA!!! WE LOVED HER and not only was she extremely detailed with the history of Capri and Sorrento but also the life of the party! We had sooo much fun with her and our boat captain Jackomo. He drove very professionally, also shared some history of the rocks and on the way back drove us straight to Positano, which was just the best! We could've ridden all the way back to Bulgaria and it would still be fun! We are very thankful for the experience provided, definitely book another tour next time! The people we met on the trip were just the greatest and had the best time! Lots of love to Luisa and Jackomo from the 3 Bulgarian girls on the 15th of October!
