A wonderful day! We did not miss anything .... a huge thank you to Rossella and Marlena for their professionalism, friendliness and helpfulness! They welcomed us and accompanied us on a tour of this magnificent island. Germania your guide is the choice I would always make where competence, professionalism and punctuality are always the masters!

The tour was great. If you come to Naples for more than a day, it is a great idea to spend a day for this tour. Our tour guide Stefano was so friendly and was so good at guiding. If your pick up point is Marittima (seaport), you have to wait near the security office. The location which shows the meeting point in navigation is incorrect

Excellent tour guide. Very funny, engaging and knowledgeable. We'd have wandered aimlessly (and probably got lost) had we been on our own. You can stay as long as you like to see more after the tour is finished which was great.

The boat tour was great! Everything was organized and everyone was super nice. You didn't even notice that you were on the road for 11 hours because the time flew by so much.

Amazing experience! So much fun & very well organised! Would reccomend to anyone :)) Great value for money too !
