Our guide and boat driver were amazing. So informative and fun. We had a great time. Capri and Anacapri were crazy busy so the boat was our favourite part of the trip.
Nice day trip
Amarpreet_P, Sept 2023
We enjoyed the Capri boat excursion. It was a very LONG day. We didn’t get back to our hotel till 7:30pm We saw many sights around the island and were given a lot of hours ( 5 and half hours)to explore Capri and Anacapri. They offer a bus program for an additional 25euro per person so you can travel around once you reach the island. We felt that the time on the island was plenty.
Capri fun
David_S, Sept 2023
The crew were great . Friendly , fun , fantastic. Well organised and amazing experience. Swim Was great on our excursion. Capri was very busy but worth the experience. Ana capri especially. Advice. Take private shuttle bus .
Worth it
Eve_M, Sept 2023
Good organisation of the schedule and 12 people on board was just the right amount. Capri with this tour was the best option we made as it wasn’t going to be nice if we got the boat to the island ourselves as it gets very busy.
Great way to see Capri by land and water
Samuel_L, Sept 2023
Great day on the water. As we boarded the boat it was a warm welcome from guiseppi and the host. Plenty of info on our way to Capri. We went straight to Capri for 4 hours to sightsee. If you think this is too much time it goes quick. We went with the suggested semi private bus around the island for 25 euro. Not sure I would use it again after being guaranteed our own seat and no line. After waiting 20 mins at Ana Capri and kicked off 3 buses due to them being for a private group we finally got one. Once back on the boat we did a loop of Capri with some snacks and drinks also a swim stop. Giuseppe has plenty of knowledge about the island and we all felt safe at all times. Reccomend if your looking for a way to see Capri and surrounds by watee.
don’t think - book this
Brooklyn_P, Sept 2023
Best trip ever. Boat was amazing, guides were amazing, location was excellent. Mary made our trip incredible. Definitely a must do with this group. Boat trip around Capri and swimming was the best!
Must do!
Megan_A, Sept 2023
We had an amazing day visiting Capri and the white grotto on the boat. 5 hours of free time is plenty and we were given information on the best things to see as well as the best ways to move around the island and so we could see plenty! Would highly recommend it was our favourite day of our holiday!
Average, almost not worth the money
Gabrielle_W, Sept 2023
Pickup from our hotel was efficient, but we waited an hour at the dock before boarding. We almost thought we got left behind. Operator wasn’t very helpful, and the boat captain was minimally communicative. We only had 3 1/2 hours in Capri, and had to get taxis as we didn’t have time to catch the bus. It seemed from the itinerary that we would swim off the boat in the middle of the day, but we ended up swimming at the end after Capri, when it was much colder (and the boat was anchored in the shade for the swim, which didn’t make sense when the sun was a few more meters away). The boat didn’t look like the pictures either, felt small for 11 people. Pickup at the end of the day was a wait too. They should update the itinerary as well. Thankfully, they knew where to pick us up and drop us off. In all, the tour was average.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Dear Gabrielle_W, We deeply apologize if the tour to Capri did not reach your expectations. Is always our highest priority to ensure that our customers are happy and satisfied at all times with our services. The waiting time at the port unfortunately depends on pick-ups, delays and traffic, we cannot predict or change it. If you had been in late, would you have preferred the boat to leave? We value your opinion regarding the tour and we see it as an opportunity to learn and improve. Rosa from Amo Italy Travel Reservations Dept & Costomer Care
Exceeds All Expectations!
David_S, Sept 2023
Knowledgeable boat operator. Flexibility for duration of swimming. Well worth the price! Crystal clear water, beautiful sights.
Better than what we imagined
mechaila_s, Sept 2023
We had a great time!! We first went to the island which the set time was 4 hours which felt like plenty of time then started our excursion/tour around the island. Beautiful boat. The most helpful and sweet guides! No stress and really laid back. They really put a lot of effort into that part❤️ my sister and I just kept saying “we’re so happy we decided to do this” the whole experience was nice and organized but also got a great taste of the culture, didn’t feel too touristy or structured. Was a great experience
Capri fantastic experience
Janet_C, Sept 2023
The great Italian atmosphere, local knowledge, efficient on pick up and return. Great fun , tips on the Capri very helpful. Would strongly recommend this tour
Fantastic Experience
Samantha_M, Sept 2023
We absolutely loved this tour of Capri and around the island. They crew were fantastic and took us to all the special areas of interest. We really enjoyed the time that we were given to swim off the boat. Thank you.
Amazing way to experience Capri!!
Corina_B, Sept 2023
Guides were very kind and helpful. Well organized!! Boat ride around island was breathtaking and guides made it fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend this!!!
Beautiful but too expensive for what’s given
Giselle_P, Sept 2023
The places visited was beautiful but the free time was less than proposed. It wasn’t worth it the price.
Nice but pricey for what you get.
Lubov_I, Sept 2023
Great tour but does not include fees in Capri. Tour is only for boat ride and transport to/from boat. A bit pricey but nice. Get ready to pay for bus in capri, tax, and optional (but a must do) cable ride. About €49, more pp. besides the boat ride.
Beautiful from the water.
Kara_B, Aug 2023
Sorrento is a larger town worth spending some time in, which we didn't do but would like to return to. This is where the bus picked us up for the boat tour. We ended up waiting for over 30 minutes due to other guests, but once we got on our way the trip went smoothly. We were 3 families in our group, a total of 12 people, the boat was comfortable for us all. The trip to Capri was direct, we were encouraged to take advantage of a shuttle bus when visiting the island, but this would cost more than $100 in addition to the tour, so we skipped this option. It meant that we could only walk to see a small part of the island, but this was enough for us. It was very hot and extremely crowded, and though we are glad to have experienced Capri, we feel that the island is more beautiful to enjoy from the boat than from walking. There was a public beach, but it was too crowded to do much more than jump in for a quick swim and no area for changing. Walking the steps to the city center was amazing (though it was a very hot day so this made it much more of a physical challenge) and there were many shops and restaurants to chose from. Once back on the boat, we loved everything that we saw and experienced. Our guides did a nice job explaining the areas, gave us plenty of time to swim and explore. Though masks were not provided, there were a few on the boat that we were able to share to allow for some viewing of the fish swimming around the boat. Being on the boat was the highlight of the trip, and in hindsight would likely opt for just doing a boat tour with more stops for swimming. The end of the tour with the waterfall was also fun - albeit a small waterfall, it was beautiful to see, and to have a fresh water shower before debarking was a nice option.
Boat tour

Amazing day! We got 3hrs on Capri alone, make sure you know what to do on capri! You are close to the beach and restaurants, and if you want to walk, 15-20 minutes up or you can pay for the bus/taxi to go up there’s small boutiques and gelatos store. The entire day was perfect and the people on the boat were very kind! Thank you again
Fantastic day touring Capri!
Rebecca_E, Aug 2023
Exceptional organisation. Our boat tour operators Hugo and Salvatore were wonderful and made the experience so special. Would highly recommend this tour.
Bad transportation
Donald_M, Aug 2023
Excursion last min was set 2 hrs later , Taxi van no ac windows didnt open to let air in ,the boat was old and slow took a extra long time to get from sorento to capri and twice as long to get back to port.
Fabulous day trip
Alison_L, Aug 2023
Fabulous day trip. Well organised with a visit to Capri early morning to enjoy Ana Capri without the crowds. The chair lift was had a great view and the Augustine gardens were worth the extra 3 euro for the view. Lots of extra (little) cost to make the day fabulous - it is Capri after all!
