Blue grotto was a beautiful highlight of our trip
, Oct 2019
Our guide was good and knew the best timing for our tour around Capri and the blue grotto. Our only wish would have been to spend more time in the blue grotto, it was very quick
Busy Capri
, Sep 2019
What a busy hectic day, and talking to the guides we had, it’s like this every day. Giovanni was awesome, very organized, helped us skip the line to take the chairlift to the top of the island (which was well worth it for the brilliant views). The visit to Capri was short, but more time was spent in Anacapri, which is we here the lunch, chairlift and Blue Grotto were all accessed from. The day was perfect and we were able to get into the Blue Grotto after lunch, which was awesome. In amongst all the chaos of the island itself, Saschen and Giovanni were very organized and made the day very enjoyable.
a very nice group tour with some flexibility
, May 2019
Our guide Sasha accomodated us even though we got there a little late. We were lucky to get into Blue Grotto as I understand only 30% of the time will conditions permit entry. We had time to do some things on our own, such as the chair lift to the top of the island. We had a nice time, and except for getting there on time, we never felt rushed.

this is by far the worst tour I have had with Viator, I want to get money back if it is possible I don't even know how to start with it is an all day tour and the tour guide didn't do much, he dropped off the group in different point of interests in the island and then disappeared the group just walked around and regroup after 45 minutes or so, we simply repeated this a few times and that's it I have realized many of the recent 1 star reviews about this tour, and I don't understand why Viator didn't do anything about it

This wasn't really a guided tour. We paid a premium price for ferry tickets and the rest of the day we were herded like cattle with very little time to do anything on our own. Most of our time was spent waiting for the ferry or various buses. We met our guide Sasha at 9:50a, then waited to board the ferry at 10:45a. We boarded a huge ferry with several hundred people. Our group of 50 was told to meet at back of ferry as it reaches Capri so we could be first to the Blue Grotto. There we waited 30 min before getting on buses to go to Capri where we had just 40 min to look around. Then another 20 min waiting/getting on buses then drive to Anacapri where we had only 1 hour to look around before lunch. We had a very uninteresting lunch at Ristorante Barbarossa, where drinks i.e. water was not included. There was no guiding about the island, we were only told where to meet to get on buses. We paid quite a premium for someone to buy us ferry tickets. It was quite a stressful day and a waste of a day in Italy.

We were told to meet at 10:15 but then had to wait 45 minutes for all the other participants to arrive on the coach from hotels. We had been led to believe the tour was in English but it turned out to be in English, Spanish and German. The jetfoil was in fact the main ferry to the island - no skip the line, we had to queue up with everybody else to get on board. We eventually arrived on Capri around 11:40. We went swiftly to a smaller boat to head out to the Blue Grotto - we were told by the guide that we had to wait our turn to go into the Grotto in the rowing boats, it was not clear how many boats were ahead of us and we appreciated how lucky we were to experience the Blue Grotto but we did not expect to have to sit bobbing up and down for almost two hours before we eventually were able to go into the Grotto - by this time many people were feeling unwell on the boat. Returning to the island we were herded onto two minibuses - one for English speakers and the other for Spanish speakers for the drive up to Anacapri. We were directed into a restaurant for a very substandard meal and then were told by the guide that we had just one hour to explore the island before we had to meet up to catch the jetfoil back to Sorrento. It was very disappointing that we had to spend so much time waiting around, which meant that we had no time at all to see Capri town and barely any time to see Anacapri - for the cost of the tour it was certainly not value for money and we would not recommend it.

We had a great time on this tour. I actually did this tour last year as well but this time the Grotta Azzurra was open. Sasha was great and a great tour guide. We had a sensational time. This time I got to to see the famous rocks from a hill after taking the sky ride to the other side from Anacapri. The Grotta Azzurra was great and the line wasn't that bad even though it was July. The ride itself is about 4 minutes but still very memorable. Sasha knew what time was best for us to get there. When we arrived to Capri, we went to Anacapri first. We also had lunch included in Anacapri and all transfers. Overall, we had a great time.

Tour guides were great. The tour itself is a little unorganized but because of the unpredictability of the Grotto not sure if there is much that can be done about that. Not much time to see the island of Capri.

Wonderful day, even if we couldn't get into Blue Grotto.
