Dear,
thank you for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed our Blue Grotto. In contrast to the Blue Grotto of Capri, certainly ours is much easier to access.

Hearing from you soon.

“'Joy' of nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We did this tour with Gino and overall enjoyed it and thought it was good value for money. Was a bit disappointing that we couldn't enter the main cave but looking at the sea going up and down inside the cave it was better to be safe than sorry. Definitely recommend it but check the weather forecast and if in doubt ask if you can do this cave before the other parts of the tour.

“The Sea Caves of Capo Palinuro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We recently visited the sea caves (there are several) of Capo Palinuro. We selected the outfit "DA Alessandro" for the tour. Our guide, Gino, was incredible. Very knowledgeable and well versed in the local history, geography, geology, fauna and flora and everything else. He kept the audience totally entertained for the two hours and half of the tour. The caves are spectacular and worth the experience.
