What people are saying about Campania

The trip around the island was beautiful. It is… a big rocky island. Having the various grottos pointed out as well as other points of interest was enjoyable. I like being on the water so that was the main draw, plus the Blue Grotto visit. Little bit of a hassle to get off and back onto the boat for the rowboat ride into the grotto but worth it. Know that you will be sitting on the bottom of the rowboat and having to recline flat for entry/exit of the grotto, dress accordingly.

We have seen much more than expected. Giovanni and his crue went out of their way to make it the most memorable trip on the Amalfi coast.

It was wonderful, a really good experience of the island with a kind, funny captain. It's a must have activity in Capri!

a must do trip if visiting amalfi - also recommended adding the swimming stop

Boat views were spectacular! Very touristy in town.
