It was a well organized trip with great staff. We got picked up on time at the determined spot and dropped off at the dock from where we would take the boat to Capri. Marlene, our tour guide for that day took great care of us and gave us all the information we needed. When we arrived at Capri I actually got a bit sea sick and couldn't take the planned boat trip around the island immediately, but Marlene suggested to take one later and really took time to help and guide us to make the most of our day. We had a great day at a beautiful island (it's well worth your trip!) and the boat tour around the island was really nice as well. The skipper had a great sense of humor :-) Our way back was just the same, boat back to the dock and got dropped of at our pickup point of that morning. Special thanks to Marlene who took care of us. She was was the kindest and most helpful person I'd met during my vacation.
The tour was amazing! The boat was beautiful and a really good size for the number of people on our tour (only 7 including us). The captain Sebastian and guide on board Pascual were so friendly and informative. We visited all the stops and they even made sure we went back to the blue grotto on the return journey as it had been closed due to high tide when we first arrived (unavoidable). They have us a really good amount of time on the island (4hrs) and great advice on how to get around (bus/taxi) from the port. Nothing was too much trouble, it was a great day out and they couldn’t have looked after us any better. They ensured we had supplies for the time on the island (drinks and lunch).
The tour was basic, but a good way to get to Capri and go around the whole island by boat. I think it worked out to be good value. I’m glad we took the tour. The only downsides were that we were not given any information about Capri before our 6 hours free time. It would have been good to have some top tips on where to go and what to see. Also, social distancing on the boat was not the easiest to maintain. Everyone had to wear masks for the duration of the journey, which was great, but everyone had to sit quite close together.
We booked this only 24 hours before departure and I was very impressed with how quickly the team got back to us with confirmation of our pick up time from our hotel. On the way to Capri the tour was primarily in Italian but on the return trip, the host Giovanni was excellent and provided detailed explanations in English with some lovely singing in true Italian style! The tour is worth it as you see a lot more of the Island than you would with a ferry.
It was a great day. Our guide was very polite and gave us great tips about what to do while visiting the Island. The boat tour around the island was fantastic! You can see all the highlights of Capri. After the boat tour, we had another four hours, so there's time to visit some of the highlights. Great experience!
