We were picked up from the Sant'Antonino piazza in Sorrento - saving us the stress of driving up and down the mountainous roads and searching for parking. The boat trip was lovely, the scenery was fantastic and Vincenzo and Giovanni were so entertaining and informative. We took the shuttle up to Capri (€22 per person) and Anacapri as an alternative to waiting in line for the public bus. This gave us the added benefit of having Giovanni show us where the main areas and places of interest were, before we left to wander around for ourselves. You have the option of doing the blue grotto and the cable chairlift if you like (additional costs). Giovanni has a lively sense of humor, keeping us entertained with information of interest and even throwing in a song and a dance in between it all. I can highly recommend this tour!!

This was an incredible trip. As we had to change our trip date due to high winds on our scheduled day the organisers agreed to collect us from our hotel, you can’t ask for better service. Out captain Francesco was friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel very safe in the ride over to Capri. Always asking if we wanted to stop and swim or see something closer. We were offered and gladly received Prosecco and beer and were given the most delicious sandwich freshly made by the restaurant in Capri. We were given about 4 hours to explore Capri which is plenty and Francesco gave us lots of information about the lift, buses where to go etc.. we had an incredible time and I would recommend this trip whole heartily !! Thanks to all xx

All the staff at Hp tours were amazingly kind and helpful! The tour itself was the highlight of our trip. We were lucky enough to be on a boat with only 5 of us, and it was so relaxing and fun. Our boat guide was knowledgeable and a great captain, getting us up close to all the attractions. 10/10!!

An incredible day; the tour was well-organised and with an extra charge of €22/person we could use the private shuttle so our time on the island was optimised. The tour guide Giovanni entertained us with his lovely voice on the cruise around Capri:) A must-do when in the Naples Bay.

My husband is a large older man with a cane. Very difficult to get into a small boat then transfer to the bigger boat. But the guys running the tour were great and helped him in and out. We had a great time. Very friendly and informative. Very glad we went.
