Two of my girlfriends and I chose to do a private tour of the Amalfi Coast with Cassiopea. It was hands down the best thing we did on our trip. Roberto, our captain, was the best--so kind and friendly, full of information, and absolutely hilarious. In addition to break-taking views of the various towns along the coast, we got to... More

My girlfriend and I went on a 5 hour private tour to Capri and back. We enjoyed the boat ride so much we only spent 30 minutes on Capri. Roberto was the perfect guide explaining everything to us. He insisted we go swimming and we were glad we did. The water (which I thought would be cold) was great! So... More

We chose Cassiopea on the recommendation of an acquaintance who stays in Positano for a few weeks every year. and by far this group was the best boat operator to Capri The captain gave us smooth ride across the sea and around coast of Capri and Positano. Small numbers only 8 on our boat and a soft matted large bough... More

Maddy and her team were very friendly and we felt safe in the hands of our captain Francesco. He was caring and attentive to the passengers on board. Group size limit of 12 is great, and the boat itself is in excellent condition with a toilet. We were shown several grottos and famous landmarks. 4 hours on Capri Island seemed... More

Did the day trip to Capri, good viewing and swimming opportunities and left you with 4 hours to explore Capri. Good to pass on the Blue Grotto. Maddy and her team are really friendly and explain your day in great detail when you book. Good quality boat and very competent driver. The small group of 12 worked really well.

This was a lovely boat cruise to Capri, however unfortunately I felt the service was a little flat. Maddy's sell on what the tour would be like beforehand was amazing. Francesco, Maddy's son and our captain, was professional and lovely, but unfortunately a little shy. While he pointed out a few main sites, I would've liked a little more history... More

After weather resulted in cancellation of our originally scheduled trip, Maddy was able to get us on a trip the next day without any issue. She was so pleasant, energetic, and helpful and spoke very good English. Not sure of what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we would be sharing a boat with only 8 other... More

Five of us close girlfriends had the pleasure of spending 5 glorious days in Positano in late July. One of the highlights was taking a 2 hour boat ride down the beautiful Amalfi Coast with our guide Roberto, co-owner of Cassiopea Excursions in Positano. We had a fantastic time enjoying the gorgeous coastline, exploring grottos and caves, stopping for a... More

We booked a Capri tour with Cassiopea and I'm very happy with our decision. With only 12 people on board, it was much more comfortable than the public ferry and we took our time going to Capri, stopping for swims, pulling into grottos around the island and getting up close to the Amalfi coast. Best of all, we spent the... More

I booked a 3 hour private tour on a rubber boat in advance of arriving in Positano and the process was easy and helpful. We worked details out over email, including payment, and when I arrived they were expecting us and excited to have our business. The warm welcome and the process itself makes Cassiopea a great choice. The Amalfi... More
