Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Pickup and drop off from centrally located Sorrento hotel/meeting point

Get picked up from your hotel in the center of Sorrento and head to the town's dock to meet your skipper for the boat ride over to the island of Capri. Set off with your small group, as Sorrento slowly disappears from your view. On the ride there, indulge in some snacks, such as sandwiches and beverages. Then take a short break at Marciano or Mitigliano to jump off of the boat to go swimming or snorkeling. 

Once on the island, say arrivederci to your skipper for a while as you'll have some free time to explore Capri as you wish. During your free time, perhaps go to the famed Blue Grotto or take the chairlift up to Monte Solaro for an incredible view. Perhaps sit down for a fresh seafood lunch or stroll around the Gardens of Augustus. All food, drinks, activities and entrance fees are your own expense.

When the time comes, head back to the designated meeting spot on the dock, board your boat and relax on the journey back to Sorrento.

The blue grotto was inaccessible due to high tides - which certainly would have been known when tickets were sold. The guide then encouraged us to spend money with private buses to get access the town - but we discovered the funicular was available for only 2euros each. A beautiful tour of the island circumference but the rest was a let-down.
Very enjoyable!

Very fun good tour. They were very accommodating. A little better english will help to enhance the trip but after all , we are in Italy!
Captain & Tour Guide say Ahoy there!

The weather wasn't ideal. It was overcast and raining off and all but that did not dampen the trip from Sorrento to Capri. Our captain and tour guide were both insightful, funny and knowledgable of the Capri and the surrounding areas. The downfall of this tour and why it garners 4 stars and not five has nothing to do with the captain or tour guide, but the dock area where the boats leave from. The dock is poorly managed, where you are treated like cattle being herded on and off boats. There is no announcement when your boat is ready to board, you just need to kinda "guess". To sum up, Tour = 5. Boat Launch, Dock personel = 3
Amazing experience!! Highly recommended excursion in the Amalfi region!!

Absolutely the best activity that we did while in Italy for 10 days. A must for sure! The tour hosts were great providing insight about the area and it's history, bringing us to to the great spots around the island to get an local experience and were very entertaining. Highly recommended.
Our best tour the whole trip!

We spent two weeks in Italy for our 5-year anniversary, and THIS was our best tour! I kept it a secret from my wife, and she was thrilled when I told her what I actually had planned for the day. Our captain, "Super" Mario, was funny and knew a lot of the area; a real party dude. After being taken through the garbage-strewn Bay of Naples (sorry, but it needs to be said: The Bay of Naples is filled with trash), we were given 4 hours of free time on Capri. When reconnecting back with Mario, he took us around the island to show us some of the caves. The Blue Grotto was off limits due to bad weather, but Mario still expertly steered the boat partway into the other caves like a skilled lover. After swimming for about a half hour, Mario gave us each a beer before taking us back to Sorrento. It was seriously an excellent day AND an excellent tour!
Great Tour

We had an amazing experience, our guide was great, he was both informative and kept it light and fun. The veggie sandwiches provided were tasty and just what was needed after a swim in the sea. Would recommend this for all groups sizes and ages. As long as you have 8-9hrs
Amazing Day

Boys knowledgeable, kind, good humor, better way to travel than big boat Disappointed the day ended at 3.30pm. Was told trip was about 9 hours.

Mario our boat Captain was great! Very funny, engaging and gave us helpful tips for things to do and watch out for. Time in the water was not nearly long enough but we understand all good things must end. In the short time we had we got to see a lot - that's what we came to do. I would have liked to have a bit more clarity on the directions to the gardens - maybe something in writing - if you want to do this - here are your directions/info. Chair lift was AWESOME!!! The only issue I had was the communications with the tour via Viator. I never heard back from them when I sent messages through the site where we booked the tour. After several follow up emails and trying to get in touch with someone about where they were going to pick us up and what time - we finally heard back the day before the trip. Communication is key in customer service - may want to work on that a little bit more. I've been in customer service over 30 years and communication to your customer is not something you want to slack on.
Great day!

Nice day on Capri, ideally would have liked to spend a bit more time on the boat and swimming in the sea, but we did about 30 minutes and it was the highlight of the day.
