Amazing Trip!! Capri and Anacapri trip from Naples can be overwhelming. It is possible to do it on your own but if you have short time or here on a peak season or during weekends, it can get extremely crowded and you might end up taking half your time figuring out the tickets and queue for boats from Naples to Capri and to go around Capri as well. It's a very well organised tour. I hate tours where the guide gives you too much of information to process and less time around. This one was perfect, we had enough time in each location o go around and try activities for instance. Lunch was decent (If you are a vegetarian like me, you will still have an option or two to eat for lunch). Coming to the Blue grotto part - I was there during an extremely crowded long weekend, I had an option to take a boat and spend my day queueing for Blue grotto or take a private boat and have a short trip to the Love rock and more time on the island with breathtaking views, I chose the second.

Our tour was outstanding! What made it so special was our tour guide Pepe. He lives in Capri so his knowledge of the area was priceless. Each person in our group had their own special things to wanted to do in Capri. Pepe made sure each of us got to see and do everything on our list! Great tour and even better guide Pepe!!

The overall experience was great. Domenico, the guide, was very interesting and full of interesting facts. Transportation was fast and enjoyable. I’m definitely recommending this trip.

Super tour guides, you really see a lot of things worth seeing from Capri. I can only recommend

Totally recommend it. Our skipper, Ignazio, made this experience even better.
