Capri and Anacapri beautiful! A good tour, very well organized by the EnjoyCapritour guys, without wasting time and without queues we enjoyed the day getting to know Capri, Anacapri and the Blue Grotto. Fabrizio's recommendations were very spot on. All very correct. I recommend them without hesitation!

Thank you very much for this day on the island of Capri. Organization at the top everything was linked very quickly including the blue cave. Special mention to the two very friendly fratello guides. Only regret not having spent more time in Anacapri. Capri is now over. But soon!

Fantastic company (Captain Ago) - lovely trip with great crew, time on Capri, swimming in the sea on way back and we were greeted with Prosecco as we got back on the boat! We went on 2 trips with them and would highly recommend
