Overall a good tour. The guide’s English is a bit difficult to understand and the visit does not include a swim or the tour of the grotto, but still a lovely boat ride along the Amalfi Coast and a great way to see Positano and Amalfi from Sorrento. Also be aware that the bus ride from the pickup in Sorrento to where you get on the boat is about 45 minutes away.

Full day boat trip to Capri from Sorrento

We got picked up from our hotel promptly on the day (got a confirmation e-mail the day before) and driven to Marina Grande, where we got checked in and boarded our boat - 18 footer. It was 12 of us altogether. Our skipper Marino was great and provided commentary throughout the trip which started with a visit to Grotta Azura where we had to wait for a bout 30-40 minutes because of congestion, but it was an amazing experience once we got inside the cave. Then we got to Capri for 3.5 of sightseeing (company can arrange transport for those who wish). In the afternoon we completed our tour around the island and saw the ret of the grottoes, swam in the crystal waters, and enjoyed complimentary drinks (soft+beer), snacks, champagne and limoncello, before returning to Sorrento. They also provide towels and packed lunch (tomato and mozzarella ciabatta). A most enjoyable trip.

The boat tour along the Amalfi coast we would book again.

The pick up at 7.40 clock was about 20 minutes too late. There were several people at the meeting point so it was confusing for us. The entrance to the boat dock was unprofessional because no one knew exactly where the boat Amalfi coast and coast Capri to port The ticket was taken from me at the port. The seats in the boat were sufficient there were probably only a few outdoor seats.
