Joined this tour particularly for the blue grotto kayak but understand that it was closed due to poor sea conditions. Tour provided a good alternative that includes a ferry ride around the white and green grottos. During lunch break they even allowed us to take the chair lift at anacapri and the view was superb! Explained the history and highlights of places and made sure everyone went back safely.

One day trip to Capri
We were in Rome and took the one day trip to Capri. Started out at 7:30 a.m. The bus trip to Naples takes about 3 hours with about a 25 minute rest halfway. Our guide spoke 3 languages and provided interesting details about the various cities and landmarks that we saw on the way. The bus ride was comfortable but no eating and no toilet.
Once in Naples, you take a large hydrofoil boat trip to Capri which takes about 50 minutes. We arrived in Capri about 12:15. We arrived in Capri Harbor and were transported by small bus to Ana Capri which is about 300 meters above sea level. The ride to Ana Capri itself is worth the trip. It is beautiful but a bit spooky as the roads are very narrow and winding and there are a couple areas where the road barrier on the cliff side is pretty low.
Once in Ana Capri, we were given the opportunity to do some shopping or to take the chair lift to the top of the island, about another 300 meters. We did not take the chair lift and regret it. The lift never really gets more than 30 feet above land at any point and those that went thoroughly enjoyed it. The chair lift cost 10 euros and is not included in the tour. They took us to a nice restaurant for lunch at 2:00. Good food, not great, but enjoyable. Great desert. Lunch was included in the tour price. We left the island at 5:10 and arrived back in Rome at 9:15. Long day but we enjoyed it. Overall, I thought that this company did a great job. Out tour guide was great, interesting and very well organized.
