The whole day was well organised and our Tour Guide, Maria, was exceptionally good. If you do your homework on visiting Capri, you will know that thousands visit every day. We were driven to Nerano and taken on a beautiful boat to Capri. We took the tour advice and decided to use their exclusive Minibus tour. This meant we got to spend about 90 minutes in Capri and 3 hours in AnaCapri without having to worry about missing ferries etc. The additional €22 pp cost was well worth it when you consider that going up and down on the public buses (if you can get on them) would set you back €15. We also spent another €12pp on the chairlift which was amazing (this from someone who hates heights). The boat tour round the island at the end of the day was the perfect end. I cannot fault this experience and would highly recommend it to anyone. Remember also the Blue Grotto experience only usually runs about 150-160 days a year so there are no guarantees. Glad we didn’t bother

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.

This day tour was perfectly organized with a German-speaking tour guide. It was very relaxed. Small group, we always had an advantage over large groups.

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