This tour is mapped out perfectly. They take you on the boat directly to the island in the morning for free time to shop and eat. They recommended a private bus as the cheapest option to get around on the island, and it was easy to navigate. The tour on the boat around the island was also super fun. We went in early October, so the wait for the Blue Grotto was short (maybe 30 min). The guides were very knowledgeable and attentive. It was my birthday, and they even sang “Happy Birthday” to me in Italian. Truly a blast! Highly recommend.

Luisa and Giacomo were excellent guides! They started the trip with Prosecco and ended with limoncello. We got a full tour of the grottos around the island and got to see the blue grotto too. Luisa helped us reserve transportation so we could go to Anacapri and Capri. Fabulous day!

By far the best day we had whilst in Sorrento. The hosts, Francesco and Andrea were nothing short of amazing. They were so accommodating and made sure we had the best day. Capri was incredible, plenty of time to be able to see everything and we were really well guided thanks to both of the hosts.
