Words cannot possibly describe how wonderful this tour, specifically with You Know, is!
We stayed in Sorrento and were picked up at the scheduled time by the shuttle service offered. A few other couples had been picked up from other locations and a few stops remained after we were picked up. The transport was comfortable, clean, and efficient.
Upon arrival we had some quick administrative activities and were divided into groups. As promised, our boat had a total of eight guests.
We were fortunate to ride with Luisa (guide) and Frederico (Captain). How can you make a dream tour of Capri perfect? By traveling with Luisa and Frederico! Luisa provided wonderful commentary about Sorrento and Capri. She is a native of the island and still lives in Anacapri. What a treat. Frederico was an excellent Captain ensuring our comfort and keeping our children, ages 10 and 8 entertained.
After a beautiful ride to the island, our first stop was the Blue Grotto. We were one of the first groups to arrive and were able to enter without the long wait that some endure later in the day. Beautiful and a must do..don't skip out on this opportunity.
Next we traveled to the port for approximately 4.5 hours of free time. Not interested in shopping, we opted to spend our time in Anacapri rather than Capri (the two cities on the island). Luisa provided us excellent recommendations for the area including a nice restaurant and some can't miss opportunities.
After our island time, we were back to sea. Frederico, expertly took us around the island as Luisa told us about the history and natural phenomena we were viewing. Then, it was time to swim! It was early May, so the water was not exactly warm, but we were not going to miss this chance and we warmed up after a few minutes of swimming.
The island is beautiful and you will have some wonderful photos to remember the experience. The company provides snacks and drinks throughout the trip. The sandwiches before "free time" was a nice touch.
If my novel above wasn't enough to convince you to go on this tour. One additional example of what sets Frederico, Luisa, and You Know apart....
One of the couples lost both their phones near the Blue Grotto (recommend pockets with buttons or zippers!). Frederico and Luisa helped the couple using their contacts to find divers to get the phones!!! By the end of the land excursion, the couple had their phones back ....waterlogged, but back in their possession. Talk about going out of their way!!!!!
Our family has been on many tours over the years, but this is one we will never forget.
What are you waiting for??????
