Our day trip to Capri was one of the best days we've ever had traveling! They picked us up in a beautiful boat and there were only 12 people including us in the group. The skipper was very nice, informative and offered us free soft drinks, beer and prosecco throughout the boat ride. We got to see some of the grottos, the fraglioni rock and a full tour around the island. We had exactly 4 hours on the island as promised and then everyone met back at the port for our ride back. The boat rides were so peaceful and relaxing, and we truly enjoyed every second of our adventure.

If you're an english speaker they will translate but it's also mostly in Italian so keep that in mind. I really enjoyed the people working with us but I was also slightly surprised that there was no limoncello served on the boat and they just give you a shot in the office at the end hahah but honestly it was a vibe and i really enjoyed the day. Also be prepared to spend extra money on bus tickets around the island, tax fee for the ferry ride over, and an extra 14 euro on lift tickets to see the island from one of the highest points.

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.

This was a perfect amount of time. The tour guides are lively and fun. It is nice to have all the special tidbits about the area

Amazing, very well organized and guides know their jobs. Perfect
