Italio and the Captain were excellent tour guides and navigated the way through very difficult weather! It was disappointing that the blue grotto was not open due to the weather forecast however did not take away from the trip and out of their hands! Budget for taxis and buses. I’d recommend skipping the main marina and spending your day at the Piazzetta di Capri (get the bus from Marina Piccola to there) and walk along the Hotel Louisanna to Belvedere di Tragura. That way you see centre of Capri and a viewing point then walk back and get a taxi to Anacapri, there do the chairlift up the mountains or walk around! And after that you’ll find your time is up. Overall I think this is one of the best tours available for Capri on getyourguide & well organised with WhatsApp communication!

Highly recommend this boat trip. We were picked up near our hotel and taken to the dock for the boat. Very well organised. The boat was very comfortable and great drinks and snacks offered including rolls, cake and limoncello. Our captain, Federico was amazing. Very informative, very friendly and had great stories to tell. 4 hours of pure fun!!

Get your guide is an AWESOME company. They are so quick to respond to everything, and the communication was so clear. Our guides were amazing. 10/10 would recommend. Alessandro was so awesome and made the trip super fun!

I loved it. Best part jumping on the water. I got lost on Capri and they waited for me. Guide was great and pleasant.

Super nice crew and an amazing time. I would recommend to any of my friends or family visiting.
