What people are saying about Sorrento Peninsula

The execution was very well organized and the guide Roberta was very careful. Ditto for our skipper, Rafaele. The only black bridge and it certainly has nothing to do with the guide but rather with the agency. We had booked a tour only by boat, nonstop in Capri. It was not the case. If the agency had informed us of this prior to our departure, we would have fully accepted the change.

The boat is beautiful and the guys are very good i enjoy my time there but I had sickness of sea in the return tour and our guides were very kind and supported me a lot! Take care of me, my stuff and even took beautiful photos by my mobile in order to not be sad later coz I missed the return trip and arrived me to my hotel. Ps. The group were small which is great we had our privacy.

This was a truly exceptional day, made in part by the beautiful surroundings, and topped by the fabulous service and hospitality of the crew. Special thanks to Roberta and Ennio for their kindness and endless thoughtfulness.

The boat trip to Capri was fantastic. You slowly sail towards Capri and can really enjoy the time. You get drinks and snacks and you stop twice to swim. On Capri itself you have 3 hours of free time. Just perfect

Francesca and salvadore Made it unforgettable ❤️ Perfect day ! Liked the boat - the food- and the Time we spend !
