    From pick up to drop off, the guides were incredibly thorough and well organised. I received a message from the guides the day before with meeting point details. We were picked up, taking on a ferry (not the nicest ferry but it got us there) and dropped off at the port in Capri. The guides walked us to the bus which was air conditioned and told us a little history of the island as we went to our first stop. All guides we're very lovely, informative and organised throughout the whole day. We saw the best little bits of the island and came back with our stomachs full and satisfied with a day of sun, boats and shopping. Would highly recommend for anyone who just wants to see a glimpse of the island from the sky and the sea.

    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.

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 510 reviews

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. You see the center of Capri and Anacapri, visiting three levels of the island. You can also choose to separate and see the Blue Grotto, or stay on the free beach, or just take a walk because you also have some free time. Our tour-leader Mariangela is really very experienced and is able not only to show and tell, but also to be a great time-manager. Not only did you see beautiful views and enjoy your lunch time, but you also able to shop for gifts.

It was excellent. Everything is well organized. We took advantage and added to our trip a boat trip around the island. We were lucky to have Serena as a tour guide with whom we soon became empathetic. We talked a lot and even made us a guide to get to know the historic center of Naples.

We are lucky to have a nice weather and luckier to have a very approachable and friendly tour guide MariAngela. Thanks for making our trip to the island of Capri a pleasant and unforgettable one.

Besides being too hot (expected for mid August) it was wonderful
