We had a great time on this tour! A highlight of our trip! Seeing the Sorrento coast and Capri from the water was so beautiful. Our captain (Raffy) was great - I couldn't believe how he was able to navigate some really crowded spots- and our host Frederico (Freddy) was SO GREAT. He was funny, genuine, looking out for us to have a great time. Capri was hot and very crowded. I suggest people do this tour on a weekday to avoid crowds. We took the recommendation to take the semi-private bus to Anacapri. This seemed like a great middle-ground between the public bus and the private taxi. The chairlift in Anacapri is a must-do! After being on-shore, we enjoyed the trip around the island. Unfortunately the water was too choppy for the Blue Grotto, but the waters were calmer on the other side of the island. I was able to swim in the Green Grotto, which was so cool!

An absolutely wonderful tour. This is definitely the way to visit Capri and the Blue Grotto. Our traveling companions of six other people were fun to be with. Our guide, Luisa, was fantastic. She and the captain, Francy, made the trip interesting and fun. Lots of refreshments and awesome views all the way around Capri. Follow Luisa's lead and use the company she recommends to get you into town in Capri. Too far to walk. Also, be sure to take the chair lift she recommends. Fabulous views at the top and fun to ride. Take your swim suit. Louisa and the captain, Francy, gave us two chances to go swimming off the boat, providing flotation devices, and with beer in hand! Get Your Guide was also extremely well organized. Everything was done professionally and with great efficiency. This was the second tour we took using Get Your Guide (the first being to Pompeii and Vesuvius) and both were excellent experiences. We recommend Get Your Guide highly.

This is going to be a long review!! This trip was absolutely stunning…really couldn’t have asked for anything better. Francesca and Nell were fantastic, nothing was a problem and they were so friendly. We also had a great group of people so by the end we were all laughing and joking together…such a lovely day. The day started by boarding the boat and heading to the Blue Grotto - I’d say about an hour to 90 minutes roughly to get there and get in. We then headed to Capri where we had 4 1/2 hours free time to explore (a bit long for us but only because it was 31 degrees and too hot!). There is a toilet on boat for changing. We then set back off to Sorrento, on the way stopping and going through the big rocks (no idea what they’re called) and toasting with fruit, a small cake and a glass of bubbly. Finally we landed back in Sorrento and got our transfer back. 5 stars really isn’t enough to rate this trip as the skippers made it so wonderful for us all. Will be recommending to all.
