Full description

Meet your expert local guide in Sorrento and embark on a high-speed boat towards the Island of Capri.

This 1-day excursion will allow you to enjoy a nice tour of amazing Capri, the island of celebrities. Sorrento is located by the sea, so it is very easy to reach the dock

Nevertheless, get a complimentary pick-up service from a number of hotels in Sorrento which will comfortably transport you to the pier.

Meet your friendly and professional guide and get ready to embark. When you arrive on the island, take a boat ride to the popular and dreamy Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto), where sunlight passes into an underwater cavity and shines through the seawater, creating a magical blue reflection.

Important: The access to the Grotto is not always possible due to the sea level. In case the Grotto is not accessible, you'll have free time to stroll through the island, relax under the sun or enjoying shopping.

After returning to the port board on a minibus for a scenic drive to Anacapri, 918 feet (280 meters) above the sea level. See wonderful views of the Bay of Naples before continuing to a local restaurant for lunch. 

Next, take advantage of some free time to explore Capri at your leisure or go shopping. Then you’ll return to Marina Grande and embark back to Sorrento.

A great day trip. Sasha was an amazing guide. The blue grotto was closed but we took a boat around to Marina Piccola and were shown other points of interest. Sasha’s sense of humour as well as his knowledge added vale to the experience. Capri is fascinating in the sense that so many people cram into such a small space. The drive to Ana Capri showed how skilled the drivers are. Thoroughly recommend taking the chair lift to the top - the views are breathtaking! And my daughter loved seeing the mountain goats high above us on the rocks. The lunch was tasty and the restaurant easily accommodated the gluten free options that my daughter needs, so if you are coeliac you can still enjoy the meal!

The best way to see Capri is on a tour. It was a fun place to visit but I don’t plan to visit again. Very beautiful but packed and touristy. The guide was amazing and made the trip a lot of fun. The views were amazing especially the chair lift.
