Great day out. Well organised and the guide was very helpful. For those planning to go to Capri be aware that a lot of tourists visit the island each day and this puts a great strain on the island's bus service. In the morning we had 4 hours of free time to explore the island before our afternoon boat trip around the island. We took the bus to the chairlift with no problems but trying to get back we found that organised tour guides were skipping the queues and filling up the buses with their groups, making it very difficult for us to get back. The manager at the bus station was very helpful and he was able to put us on a minibus but we only just made our afternoon boat trip, so just be aware that getting around the island can be an issue and take a lot longer than you expect.

Worth the money. Everything worked well. The guide + infos were just what we were looking for. First we were picked up by a big car. We were brought to a marina where the biat took us to capri marina. From there we got all the infos and could buy tickets for the tourist bus that brings you to different stations just like a hop on hop off bus. We went to the top of capri with a chairlift. This was the best part of the whole trip. Afterwards we checked out annacapri and capri. Annacapri was a nice quiet idyllic little place. Capri was beautiful but very crowded. Good for luxury shopping and the insta pics for those who need it. Afterwards we had a trip around the island with the blat before heading back home.

In our short getaway to Italy we took this trip to Capri and we were very pleased with it. Capri is an amazing island and a total must see. We booked two other day trips (not with HP travels) to the Amalfi coast and Pompeii/Mt. Vesuvius. The day trip to Capri was far better than the other day trips we took. One of the main difference in our experience was the guide. Marlene was our guide for the Capri trip, she was exceptional. She was really nice and very professional. She was always polite and really enthusiastic about helping us getting the most out of this experience.

Very well organised , nice with a smaller group of people.the boat trip there was fabulous, saw some lovely sights and the guide sang and entertained thorough the trip! Had a drink and sandwich there and a fruit salad on the way back! Capri was very busy, get a ticket from the ticket office and get on the tram straight up to the top where there are some lovely shops, places to eat and great scenery! Highly recommended!

The Capri Island day trip is the best one while we stayed in Naples. We enjoyed every minute we were on the island. The tour is well organized. The boat ride around the island is breathtaking, so beautiful. The allowable free time to explore the island is just about right - Thanks to Stefania (from HPtravel) who provided helpful tips for the island.
