Completely worth it, Nico is the best!
James_N, Nov 2022
Arguably one of the best experiences on our trip to the Amalfi Coast. Everything was organized easily by communicating through WhatsApp and Nico contacted us the day before to make sure we knew when and where to meet. After the private boat tour, I don't think I could do a group tour because it was just nice to have the privacy of relaxing on the boat for a little extra cost. Completely worth it. Nico took us to a little cove where we dove in and enjoyed the blue waters. We tried to go to the blue grotto, but the line to get in would've been 2 hours, so we decided to maximize our time touring the island and relaxing instead. The next time we come back to Capri, we will definitely give Nico a call and we've already recommended him to all our friends!
Amazing experience!

Nico was fantastic! Incredible experience! He was very knowledgeable about the island and very accommodating! Have great recommendations on activities on the island and we had the most fabulous meal ever from one of his recommendations! We will be rebooking with Nico next time we visit Capri and would strongly recommend booking with him when you visit!
Great tour!

Nico was awesome! He had great communication and tailored our trip due to sea conditions. He was very knowledgeable about Capri and we were very comfortable on his boat. It is clear that he enjoys his job and knows how to handle himself on the water. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing way to experience Capri. Nico took us to all the grottos and has a lot of knowledge about the island. Swimming was our favorite part!
Beautiful boat, great host, and spectacular views
Kyle_K, Jul 2022
My wife and I had a wonderful experience with Nico for our boat cruise. He is very fluent in English and shared many things about the area with us. His boat is beautiful! He provided some snacks, towels, and noodles for swimming. Our only regret is that we did not book a longer cruise. We will be sure to rebook with Nico in the future.
Go boat around Capri!

We were in the Precious with Skipper Nico. Very friendly and beautiful views! nico also kept in touch with us via what’sapp and made sure we found our way.
Best experience in Capri!

Awesome boat tour!! Our captain Nico, was excellent! He was very communicative leading up to the tour on where to meet and such. He knew a lot about the island and told us facts about grottos and places we stopped. He drove us around the whole island which was about 3 hours! I didn’t even realize it was a private tour which was amazing! We got to stop and swim twice in the beautiful sea! We got snorkels and a noodle too! You are able to stop at the blue grotto and go in but we decided against it because the lines are super long and we would of missed the whole tour! Luckily we saw the whole island and it’s beauty! Would definitely recommend booking with Nico and this boat tour!
Amazing experience

AMAZING experience
Alexa_G, May 2022
We loved Nico! He was so kind and so quick to respond so that we could find him. You can tell he has a real appreciation for the beauty of Capri and the ride was so smooth! The sea was windy in the morning on our scheduled tour, so he pushed it back for us by 30 min and the weather ended up being gorgeous like he said it would be! AMAZING experience!
1000% recommend booking...
John_I, May 2022
1000% recommend booking the private boat tour with Nico. He keeps a very clean boat, provides a tour based on your interests, and he is very knowledgeable of Capri since his family has been there for generations. This boat tour was the highlight of our entire Italy trip. It’s worth every penny.
Awesome tour of Capri...
Dean_T, May 2022
Awesome tour of Capri with Nico. He was born and raised on the island and educates you on the history of the island and the surroundings. Highly recommend him for the private boat tour as your captain. 5 Stars!!!
A highlight of our trip - not to be missed!
Annette_D, May 2022
A perfect cruise on the water taking in the breathtaking sites of Capri! Nico is a fabulous captain and navigated us into the many grottos of the island. This is a fabulous way to experience Capri. There was even time for relaxing and swimming. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Capri!
Wonderful experience
John_H, Sep 2021
Clear information online, easy to book and coordinate. Loved our boat captain: he went to all the best places, was delightful in manner, perfect English! Well worth the cost, best value in Capri!
Amazing trip
Rhiannon_W, Sep 2021
Such a lovely trip! The boat was super nice, Nico was friendly and accommodating, and we went around the whole island in 3 hours. Not sure if the blue grotto tour is worth the money as its super short and you can't see all that much, but you could always choose not to do that and swim for a bit longer - probably a better shout in my opinion! Thanks Nico for the lovely day :)
Gina_B, Sep 2021

Nice Tour

The tour was nice. The sea was very rough that day and I don't feel like we were adequately warned about just how bad it was. But the scenery was beautiful and, despite it being our captain's last day with the company, he did a great job. Unfortunatey some members of the tour got very sea sick from the rough seas.

Nico our skipper contacted us beforehand and ensured we had all the details which was nice. He was right on time for pickup and exactly where he said he would be. The weather was just perfect. Nico provided history and information on the stops along the way. He was very pleasant and accommodating. Would highly recommend Nico’s tour.
Fantastic experience
Thierry M, Jun 2019
I think it is the best way to discover Capri Island as you have the opportunity to navigate just below impressive cliffs. It is the kind of memory you remember your whole life. We had the opportunity to swim between marina piccola and faraglioni in a paradisiac landscape. Our guide Nicolas was very kind and showed us major places of interest with explanations. Thanks to him!
