A really great experience and especially not in the hustle and bustle of other tourists. Therefore really time to relax and to enjoy the wonderful landscape and the sea. The tour is finalized on departure and with the tips of our captain "Luigi" - an absolutely nice guy - guarantees an unforgettable experience! "Hello Luigi! Thanks for the great day from the five Austrians on May 23rd"

Luigi the captain was wonderful! The only suggestion we have is from Minori to Capri, maybe a boat with better seating in the back? There was no back support for the passengers sitting in the back. Boat is fine for a coastal tour, but not so great for a long boat ride to Capri. Luigi and Valeria were both wonderful to communicate with for all the details.

The experience was great, we were lucky to meet Francesco, an exceptional guide. He takes you through all the caves around the island explaining the most important things. It was a very pleasant walk, it included snacks, a bottle of wine, soft drinks and towels!!! I would repeat without a doubt.

Very nice excursion on this beautiful boat, with top service on board and attentive and smiling captains! The extras: life jackets for the children, blankets to avoid catching cold, drinks and a delicious sandwich for the break in Capri

A really overly day with a brilliant driver that had a perfect t balance of telling us about the area and giving the perfect amount of privacy for a romantic trip
