This was such an amazing tour and Tiziana was a really amazing guide. I particularly enjoyed the chairlift up to Monte Solarno- the views were breathtaking and unmissable! I also really enjoyed having everything organised out for me (such as the bus that drove on the Mamma mia road) because there so many people on Capri that it probably would’ve been difficult to explore on my own. Overall, I really enjoyed this tour, especially because Tiziana looked after us all so well and took us to all the best spots to take photos!

Terry was the most kind guide! She explained us so much and got us through the day with no issues. The lunch was nice and we also took the optional boat tour. But the boat tour was a bit expensive for what it was.

Most amazing day with Umberto! We would recommend this day! He took amazing care of us. Enjoyed everything. Thought of every detail to make it unbelievable.

It was well planned trip with inclusion of all mesmerizing views. Guide Serena was also very accommodating and explained all the things very nicely

Excellent. The guide Theresa was very good and made the tour enjoyable.
