Luigi was fantastic and really made us feel part of his family. He had a great sense of humor and was knowledgeable on history of the island. Great recommendations and timed everything to perfection. We never had to wait more than a couple minutes as Luigi organized the whole day. We really enjoyed this activity

Blue Grotto will only be open if the water is calm (quite often it will be shut for a few days in a row so don't get your hopes up). If it is shut, you do a boat tour with about 50 other people around the island (this is still a nice experience). The chairlift in Anacapri is worth doing but will cost extra (as does lunch). This tour was good but it is extremely expensive for what you get. If I had my time again, I would either get the ferry over from Sorrento to Capri and explore the island myself (I suggest doing basic Google search to find out what to do and create your own itinerary).
