Amazing tour and compared to Capri prices, this is very affordable.
The boat is a middle size and enough space for the group.

Amazing... once we found the tour operator.
Delbert_A, June 2023
Unfortunately, there was no signage to find the tour boat. We were given the wrong directions twice and by the time we found the boat it was too late for the tour. When we finally got connected it was great and I would recommend that anyone who visits the Isle of Capri first do the Island cruise.

Hardly Understood the Tour Language
David_S, May 2023
We signed up for an English speaking tour. Yes, English was one of the languages but I could only understand his first few words. After Ladies and Gentlemen, I didn’t understand one word. He spoke too fast and mumbled and the sound system was awful.
Great but check in was a little hectic
Patti_B, May 2023
Although the boat trip was excellent, the directions to the location for the ticket retrieval and location of the pier was confusing. When we got to the storefront for the tickets, there was a large line of those with prior reservations mixed with those who were there to purchase new tickets. It took quite a long time to get through the line and we were afraid we were going to miss our excursion. (It would have been better if they had a separate line for those with prior reservations.) Luckily, (after asking people af the harbor, we found the correct pier (not marked). Twenty minutes later, we started the tour and it was a great time. The captain was great and an excellent driver who provided great commentary about the island and the grottos. We did not take the option for the Blue Grotto since there was a 2 hour wait to get in. I do recommend this tour but the check-in procedure could be better...especially for those who already have the vouchers.
Inconsiderate HP travel office in Capri
Jenny_L, May 2023
The HP Travel ticket office tells you to arrive at 9:30am to check in for this Capri coast to coast trip. However, the office doesn't open until 9:45am, leaving everyone confused and angry. The two young girls who were running the place had no care or concern that they showed up late. They in fact, hooked their friend up with a boat ride in front of all the paying customers waiting on line. This made everyone angry and unhappy. Very unprofessional and makes me reconsider booking through third party services. The boat ride itself was great!
Disappointing Capri boat trip
lorrainemmitchell1, May 2023
We booked a trip with Viator for a tour around Capri Island with English Narrative. The booking was with H P Travel Company. Despite checking with the tour operator that the trip was in English when we collected our tickets from their office and also checking with the boat operatives when we boarded the boat, the entire tour was in Italian. It was a complete waste of time undertaking the boat trip as we don’t speak Italian , we didn’t know what any of the destinations on the tour were or understand any of the information given. I have contacted the tour company directly by email on 3 occasions and have not had the curtesy of a reply. Unless you speak Italian please avoid this tour and travel company.
Very incredible only

All the rock formations were breathtaking and fascinating. Just remember if someone's standing in the way of a photo, tell them to sit down.

Dear guest, thank you very much for your nice words. We're glad to read you enjoyed the tour around the island. We hope to meet you again, soon. Kind regards, Alba.
Good day out
Elayne_B, May 2023
You load a big boat and head to the blue grotto, where 3-4 people at a time disembark to a row boat, that row boat then goes thru the opening barely big enough for it alone, so everyone including the oarsman has to lay down flat on the bottom of the rowboat. Inside is very pretty, drippy and crowded. The whole experience is about 5 minutes inside with many other rowboats. I wouldn't recommend it if you do not like tight spaces or if you get claustrophobic. There are many rowboats so the whole process is probably an hour, but also if seas are high they cannot do it. And it depends on how many large boats are waiting. It will cost you an extra 15 euros a person+ a tip, cash only. Then when everyone was done we had a tour around the island which took an hour or so, pointing out all the things to see, and took you into coves to show you special things. It was nice. Boat had bathrooms and the sold water and sodas for a euro each about half way through. All in all very nice

Dear Elayne, thank you for your nice and detailed review. We always try to do our best to let you enjoy your day with us. We look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, Alba.
Good tour despite weather
Lyle_S, May 2023
It was a windy chilly day but the tour boat tour was good. The guide was informative and had a great sense of humor. Even though the water was a bit choppy, the captain did a great job getting us into areas to see coast line and some grottoes. Unfortunately the Blue Grotto wasn’t open so we were sad about that.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Lyle, thank you so much for your nice words. We're sorry you missed the Blue Grotto but unfortunately this doesn't depend on us. Anyway we're happy to know you enjoyed your boat tour with us. We hope to meet you again, soon. Kind regards, Alba.
Great boat tour
Sherry_H, May 2023
Great boat ride around the island! Guides were awesome! If you don’t want to wait a long time for blue grotto- get there early as do the 9am tour. (We time the 11:45am tour and the wait was 90 min- so we chose not to do it.)
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Sherry, thank you for your praise words and suggestions. We happily welcomed you in Capri and always will, so come visit again. Kind regards, Alba.
Beautiful Views of Capri from the Water
Angela_M, May 2023
Beautiful views all around the island. Boat captain and tour guide did a great job getting us up close to the grottos and lots of details about the sights. Boat was roomy and fun. Highly recommend!!
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Angela, it's such a pleasure to read such a wonderful review! We always try to do the best we can to entertain our guests during their stay in Capri. We hope to meet you again, soon. Kind regards, Alba.
Great Experience! We did the tour without the Blue Grotto
Bianca_T, May 2023
What a fantastic hour spent going around the island. The ticket office was easy to find and easy to pickup our tickets. Our boat was at dock 23 which was basically right in front of the ticket office - look for the sign that reads 23 and 24. Don't go to the busy long curved dock that starts at dock 1. The boat was well managed and the operators were lovely. Our guide spoke fantastic English and was quite funny :) From Marina Grande you go clockwise around the island. It was a fun and bumpy ride for the first half because we had some wonky weather in the AM. But the captain had it all under control. What a gorgeous island! When we made it to the Blue Grotto side there were no rowboats stacked up as entry was not allowed due to the water height. The perfect start to our Capri day trip! And great price.

Dear Bianca, thank you for your nice and detailed review. We happily welcomed you and did the best we could to ensure you spent a good time with us. We hope to see you again. Kind regards, Alba.

Michael_R, May 2023
We had a fabulous tour around the island with a humorous English speaking tour guide. He explains a lot of history and the wonderful sights around the island. And the visit to the Blue grotto was breathtaking.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Michael, thank you so much for your nice words. We're so glad to read you really enjoyed your day with us. We hope to meet you again soon, to have another amazing day together! Kind regards, Alba.
Great ride but wish we saw the blue grotto
Pete_L, May 2023
Boat tour was great and captain was funny on the mic but ultimately we didn’t see the blue grotto. Had we, this would have easily been 5 stars.
Would definitely recommend!
Emma_B, May 2023
We loved this boat trip, the meeting point was convenient and easy to find and the staff in the ticket office and on the boat were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the waiting time for entry to the Blue Grotto was 2+ hours, and trips directly to the Blue Grotto had ended by the time we tried to board (4:30pm). Nevertheless, it was a wonderful trip!
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Emma, Thank you so much for this review! We are glad you enjoyed your day , that's one of the best things about it! We hope to see you again soon, Francesca
2hr Island Cruise
David_J, May 2023
Good value for money. Blue grotto waiting time was over 1 hr so captain decided to return to port and those who were prepared to wait could board another boat that went straight back to the attraction. Outside seats on the right hand side are best to see the island, only inside seats were left when we boarded, not the best but chance you take. Overall enjoyed the trip, the commentary was very informative and good humour and would recommend this trip if you want to spend a few hours seeing the island.

Dear David , Thank you so much for this review! We always try to give our customers the best possible experience, ad we're happy to know you enjoyed it Hope to see you again soon! Best regards, Francesca
Great Boat with Rows of Seats. Navigating the Departure Area Challenging.
Sally_V, Apr 2023
The boat captain showed us beautiful areas and pointed out significant places along the coast. He was able to navigate masterfully to allow everyone a great view. The Blue Grotto was chaotic. A little more info (and assurances that we’d get on a little boat) would have been helpful. The boat had ample seating with a shaded area and a small upper deck. The only real struggle was arriving at the Marina to find the HP Travel office closed. Our boat was scheduled for 9:30 am, but no one arrived to open the office until about 9:20. Everyone waiting in line was worried. Even just a note on the door about opening right before the departure would have been helpful. Also, we were told a platform number, but leaving the travel office, the posted numbers are not visible. If it weren’t for a couple of guys yelling 23 on the dock, we couldn’t have found it.
Well worth the trip but plan on around 3 - 4 hours for both.
Richard_M, Apr 2023
The trip offered a boat tour around the island and a stop at the Blue Grotto as an option based on how busy it was at the point of entrance to the cave. Our boat did not stop to allow anyone off the boat and we returned to the dock and had to go back on another boat that only had those that wanted to enter the cave. While we were there, I saw other boats stop but not stay and then leave. It should be set up as 2 trips to allow for the extra 1 - 1 1/2 hours going back out to the cave. But it was well worth it and I would suggest that everyone experience it.

Sangeeta_D, Apr 2023
Very good service! The Blue Grotto was crowded when we went on the first boat ride so we came back and they took us back on the boat an hour later directly to the grotto so we could do the Blue Grotto trip which was a great experience!

Great way to experience the island. Great value and great fun. Recommend for families, couples, singles - anyone looking to see Capri from the sea and spend an hour in the gorgeous sea and sun.

Siria_R, Apr 2023
Beautiful scenery! Rough winds and sea level made it impossible to go to the Blue Grotto. The tour guide was also the captain. He was nice but didn’t give as much information as the other fellow who was done below with the passengers.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Hello Siria, Thank you for the beautiful review! We hope you liked the tour even without the visit to the Blue Grotto, but the wonders of the island more than make up for it. Best regards, Aniello
