“Capri Guided Services- DON'T!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

If you are looking for tour options for Capri... don't hire the company Capri Guide Services, with website: http://www.capriguideservices.com/
They are rude and extremely overpriced.

First of all, we were supposed to take a private tour of the island hired with this company on July 2011. When we met our guide the day of the tour at Sorrento, he was extremely rude. His name was Tony, a 65 year old man that told us that we were not going to be able to take a boat tour around the island because the sea was choppy (the day was sunny, not a cloud in the sky). When we told him that we were concerned about taking the tour if we were not going to be able to tour the island by boat, he told us he didn't understand what our problem was, and told us to take a decision fast. We still hadn't payed for the tour, and while we were discussing options, he came back and told us, word for word: "I'm not wasting my time with you people, I don't need your money. Good bye." and left.

Besides this extremely rude behavior, the company was going to charge us 775 euros for a day trip, which included a visit to mount solaro, boat trip around the island, blue grotto and a convertible car ride in the island. We decided to make the tour ourselves, and when we got to Capri, we discovered that EVERYBODY was taking the boat tour around the island even with the "choppy" sea, and the convertible car stuff were just taxis... EVERY taxi in Capri is convertible. In the end, we made all the activities by ourselves that we had planned with the private tour, and it all cost us 325 euros, about 400 less than what this crappy company was going to charge us.

In summary, this company treats its clients terrible and charges a whole lot more than what you would spend by doing everything on your own. Capri is a wonderful place and you definitely should go, but don't EVER go with Capri Guide Services.
