Italio and the Captain were excellent tour guides and navigated the way through very difficult weather! It was disappointing that the blue grotto was not open due to the weather forecast however did not take away from the trip and out of their hands! Budget for taxis and buses. I’d recommend skipping the main marina and spending your day at the Piazzetta di Capri (get the bus from Marina Piccola to there) and walk along the Hotel Louisanna to Belvedere di Tragura. That way you see centre of Capri and a viewing point then walk back and get a taxi to Anacapri, there do the chairlift up the mountains or walk around! And after that you’ll find your time is up. Overall I think this is one of the best tours available for Capri on getyourguide & well organised with WhatsApp communication!

We had a wonderful visit throughout the museum. Our guide Nicoletta met us outside the museum 10 minutes prior to our scheduled time. She ushered us in prioritizing our collection visits so that we had no almost no other people around us! She is a true archeologist that has been on many digs! Her explanations helped us understand our visits to Pompei and Herculaneum. She knew the elevator access helped us secure a lost bag successfully and explained every collection perfectly. Some of the best things are very small! It was a great day in a great museum!

Luigi the captain was wonderful! The only suggestion we have is from Minori to Capri, maybe a boat with better seating in the back? There was no back support for the passengers sitting in the back. Boat is fine for a coastal tour, but not so great for a long boat ride to Capri. Luigi and Valeria were both wonderful to communicate with for all the details.

What an amazing tour! Beautiful sites, fun and educational. Martha was excellent and fun! We enjoyed everything this tour had to offer. 100% recommended!!

This is the best way to understand the city’s history and culture to decide which area and activities you want to focus on.
