Just did a 12 day trip around Italy going to Rome, Florence / Tuscany, and the Amalfi coast and this day trip to Capri was my favorite day of our entire vacation. The scenic views going around the island can't be missed -- Capri does not have one bad angle, and photos can't compare to seeing it with your very own eyes. The blue grotto add on was a unique bonus and an experience worth doing. The four hours to explore the island is a good chunk of time to get some activities in without feeling rushed. But bonding with the fellow travelers on the boat ride made the whole trip even better.

Excellent day and well worth doing. Loved taking the stairlift to Anacapri (extra) as the views are a must see. Loved also the boat trip around Capri at the end of the day (€20). Great to see all from the other side. The blue grotto is pretty cool. You’ll be tired at the end of the day so be warned.

We had. Wonderful time! The captain and guide where knowledge and the boat ride around the whole island was spectacular! Highly recommend !

Really good. Marlene gave us plenty suggestions on things to do with our free time on the island!

All ran to a time with a really lovely tour guide. Amazing day.
