    I took the option to meet the guide in Capri and pay for my own transport to Capri. I arrived early and the meeting spot is Il gabbiano bar at pier 23. I had tea and breakfast here and I highly recommend to do this if you arrive early into Capri and wait out the crowds from the ferry going up the funicular/cruise to grotto or meeting your tour. The guide was prompt and drove us up to anacapri where I had free time and the guide recommended places to see/things to do. Next was Capri centre. I didn't have lunch included but chose to head to a lovely cafe in Capri centre for lunch before joining the guide back to the harbour. the guide kindly called his contact and reserved me a ticket for the return trip back to Naples as it can get full. I'm glad I saw Capri with the guide as he was very helpful in providing guidance on where to go and what to see to maximise my time there and of course get me back to Naples. Very helpful.

Everything went smoothly. There was not a lot of free time, which was the right amount in my opinion, as I see no way to do something productive in the island outside of the attractions, which were included. The guide also informed us what was recommendable during the free time so that was very convenient. Villa San Michelle is a must visit for everyone who read the Munthe's book and a mustn't visit for those who didn't. The guide Serena was very warm person and gave not too much and not too little information about the historical significance of the island. That I also liked. Not too much unnecessary precision about the dates just the general understanding which historically known people liked the island and why. I'd say that this Tour is suitable for those who are not to keen on having a lot of free time in the middle of tours to mindlessly wander around. P.S. take the boat trip for additional 19 Eur around the island. Serena will inform you how to take it.

It is definitely worth traveling with World Tours, because everything is organized perfectly, and the information about the ongoing activity was timely and very detailed. Most importantly, if you’re with a group, you don’t have to wait at the entrances to places of interest, nor look for the right transportation - everything is organized and done for you.
