What people are saying about Anacapri

Excellent day out. Michel, our guide on Capri was very helpful. Blue Grotto was closed due to weather, which was probably a good thing as the replacement boat tour around the island is probably a better experience although it really tested my not too good sea stomach! The very quick (25 minute) jet foil crossing also recommended. Great views from the top of the chair lift in Anacapri and nice lunch there too, not too expensive.

We were led very nicely and perfectly! We could choose what and how detailed we wanted to see something. With minibuses, which were always ready, we were quickly brought to all the sights. Our guide Luigi was competent and very personable! Mille Gracie

Absolutely worth every cent. Such an amazing experiment. Everything was well organised and Marco the tour guide was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable and funny. Will definitely do this tour again.

Superb excursion with our guide Paola who was at the top! thank you so much

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