This was the best part of our trip to Italy. Gennaro is a wonderful guide. We enjoyed our trip immensely. We learned a lot about Capri and saw some amazing views. Thank you!
Best Day in Capri

An unbelievable time aboard our boat with Captain Genaro! He circumvented the island showing us all of the sights. Very knowledgeable and friendly. A highlight of our time in Capri.
Unforgettable tour

Gennaro went above and beyond for my partner and I, he instantly made us feel comfortable and took his time showing us as much as he could making it possibly the best day of our travels on the Amalfi coast. If you end up reading this, thank you again Gennaro 👍🏼

Chance of a lifetime

Mario was the greatest host on his families boat. Our weather was perfect but me and my friend did not wish to swim. This left us with more time and Mario was very accommodating. He revealed many other parts of the island we would have missed. This is so worth your trip. Make time for yourself and indulge in this chance of a lifetime.
Amazing boat ride around Capri

Amazing and memorable boat ride around the island, highlight of our visit to Capri! Our guide Mario was fantastic, he was on time and efficient in getting us through the lines to see all the grottos and attractions. Don’t miss this tour!
Unforgettable experience!

Booking the private tour was the best decision we ever made. We were visiting Capri for the first time with my family. Our booking was for 9am but the Ferry ran a bit late and we didn't arrive to Capri until 9:15am. I contacted the private tour guy and explained we were running late. They were very understanding and even though our tour started a bit late we has enough time to go inside the Blue Grotto and take a swim. It was such an unforgettable experience, we are so happy we booked this.
Amazing tour of Capri!

Gennaro was an amazing captain with intimate knowledge about everything Capri. He took us to all of the spots you see in pictures but also a few “hidden treasures” that were equally as beautiful. He was friendly, had a cooler stocked for us, and was always ready to take pictures or tell a joke! I’d highly recommend anyone wanting a great experience touring Capri with a knowledgeable captain to book with this company.
Gennaro, the captain of Capri

The highlight of our trip. Gennaro was the best, he really seemed to enjoy having us on the boat and we enjoyed him. Very friendly, flexible and a great tour guide. The blue grotto was closed due to weather but we had an amazing time touring around Capri anyway.
Book this private tour!
Victoria_P, Sep 2022
Amazing time!! Beautiful boat and tour around the amazing Capri. We were able to stop and swim, and still have time to go to the Blue Grotto, and go around the entire island. Can’t recommend this private tour enough!
Jessie_B, Sep 2022
We had the best time! I wish I could give them more stars! Everything was perfect. Our original tour was cancelled due to weather but Mario and Gennaro were so accommodating and fit us in for another day! Highly recommended! You will not regret it!
An amazing family day in Capri with Mario!
Cynthia_R, Aug 2022
We started our morning meeting Mario at a restaurant where we bought a plastic jug of sangria (so yummy) then headed to the boat. From the moment we stepped foot on Mario's boat to getting off, he was nothing but amazing. We had the best time going around Capri visiting all the caves and sights. Mario not only was a great host, but we really had a blast hanging out with him all day. I would highly recommend this tour if you're wanting a more family friendly boat tour. Can't wait to go back one day!
The BEST Capri Experience!!
Lizzy_M, Aug 2022
This boat tour was by and far the highlight of our time in Positano/Capri! While we arrived on a VERY hot summer day, the boat was extremely comfortable, refreshing, and romantic. We were shown all of the beauty that Capri has to offer and the history behind each and every arch and cave and home. Luckily, the Blue Grotto was open, and it is worth the wait to get in! We brought our own bottle of wine, but there was complimentary chilled Prosecco and waters for the journey, along with wine glasses aboard. We were provided towels and multiple spots for swimming - if you’re given the opportunity, just say yes! I cannot recommend this tour enough. It gives you the best view of Capri, a private and educating tour of the island, and incredible photos to take with you to remember your time. Book it now!!!
Wonderful Tour

The captain was so helpful and very funny. He helped us capture pictures of our family out on the beautiful water. We really appreciated the central location they provided to be taken to the boat. It was very easy to find and everything went perfectly.
Perfect day on the water.
Sarah_S, Aug 2022
Our captain picked us up and from that point on it was nothing but a good time. We popped champagne and toured around Capri. He showed us some lesser known spots and took plenty of photos while providing us with endless entertainment. The tour took us around the island and made time for stops to let us jump off the boat and go for a swim. Our captain really made the trip a memorable experience - outside of the gorgeous views and pristine water. We can't wait to go back!
Must do experience in...
Amit_K, Aug 2022
Must do experience in Capri . The captain was great and swim in Mediterranean Sea is once in a lifetime experience
Fantastic friendly tour!!
Mark_B, Aug 2022
Mario was a fantastic skipper, taking us to the best places-especially for swimming, a great sommelier providing Prosecco, an artist, taking great photo’s and a moderate singer…haha Our family had a great boat tour of the island and would certainly do it again with Mario!!!
Boat, water and family

Gennaro met us at the pickup point which was a little bit of a walk from the ferry drop off we were a bit late but I had messaged him to say that. It was fine- we were escorted to a beautiful boat that he upgraded us to. He Spoke good English but my husband speaks Italian so he spoke both! We swam in beautiful grottos and caves all around Capri. Highly recommend he was funny and shared history along the way. Highly recommend.
Wonderful afternoon.
Nicole_W, Aug 2022
Great afternoon and great value. Our captain took us to so many great places around the island to see and swim, the small Capri style boat was very nice and comfortable for our family of 5. We spent the morning wandering around Anacapri and then Capri and then took the tram down to the marina to meet the captain. One of the best afternoons on our trip.
Great Relaxing Private Boat Tour!

Librerio our captain was great! The private boat tour really makes a difference as you go on your own pace. Prosecco drinks and the stunning views were awesome too!
Amazing experience!
Danielle_P, Jul 2022
We absolutely loved our guide and it was well worth the money. We skipped the blue grotto and opted for more swim time and it was worth it. We were able to snorkel for about an hour. This was a memory my children will have forever.
