What an absolutely amazing boat trip. We were picked up promptly outside our hotel, and there was good communication before the day to let us know when we would be picked up. We were driven to the port and organised into groups, and made it on to our boat on time for our departure. There were about ten of us on the boat and there was plenty of room to spread out. We sailed along the Sorrento coastline first and our guide Francesca pointed out the various sights and gave us lots of information. We then sailed on to Capri and did a lap of the island with Francesca pointing out the sights. We were glad we didn't book a tour that included blue grotto, as it was closed on the day due to sea conditions as it often is. We stopped part way round for swimming for about 15 minutes and floats were provided, Francesca was lovely even offering to take photos of us jumping off the boat etc. After getting back on the boat we were given crisps and a choice of drink, the drinks were all cold. We the continued around the island and were offered prosecco. We arrived at the Marina Grande around 1pm, we were told we had 4 hours to explore the island. Francesca gave us her recommendations of how to spend the time and advice on how to travel around. We all got given a sandwich as we got off the boat, which was delicious and very welcome as we quickly discovered how expensive Capri is! We weren't that impressed by the island, we had to queue for ages for the funicular to take us up to Capri centre and there were just lots of designer shops and overpriced restaurants with waiters that were reluctant to serve us, we heard from other people on the boat that they had had similar experiences. However I'd still 100% recommend this tour just for how good the boat ride was, and the beautiful scenery around the island. We were picked up promptly at 5pm and sailed back, we were given a cold beer, some fruit and a cake, followed by limoncello. It was such a good day and we couldn't believe the amount of food and drink that was included. We were picked up at the port and went straight into the transport back to our hotel. A few weeks later we were also emailed the photos that were taken on the boat, which was a lovely memento.

Things to be aware of: shoes have to be taken off on the boat, which wasn't an issue for us. The sea was also very choppy, there had been a storm the night before so not sure how choppy it usually would be. We sat at the front of the boat and were drenched on the way back! Not an issue for us as it added to the excitement but just something to be aware of. There are seats on the back, or you can sit on the 'deck' at the front (not sure of the right word!)

Had a lovely day out on Capri via the You Know! boat, crewed by Luisa and Federica. What a wonderful day.

We had looked around but after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor took the plunge and paid for two ticket online 89 euros each. This was actually considerable cheaper than the Hotel offering and even via the local office in Piccola port in Sorrento. They wanted 100 euros but did not pick up and drop off and more importantly to me they landed at the small port (Piccola port) on Capri rather than the larger Grand Marina port where the Funicular and buses etc were.

The “Captain” said it would be fine and buses ran every 5 minutes to Capri which raised my suspicion, he also said all the small boat tours dropped off at Piccola. I did some checking and found that buses ran every 30 minutes or so and you could get dropped off at the main harbor, so we went with You Know!

I am so glad we did, we were picked up a few minutes from our Hotel and dropped at the port, from there we boarded a small boat (a total of 12 passengers) and soon started our trip to Capri Island after a short cruise along the Sorrento coast.

Luisa and Federico were a delight and did all they could to make our tour an enjoyable one. Luisa actually lives in Ana Capri so was a fountain of local knowledge. There was ample room for all of us on board and we were supplied with drinks and snacks throughout and also a Buffalo cheese & tomato roll to take with us onto the island (a nice touch). Federico did all the usual stops as we cruised around the Island turning the boat at each stop so that we could all take photos from wherever we were on the boat while Luisa pointed out all the landmarks. We also stopped off for some of the braver passengers to dive overboard for a swim in the cove. While it was a sunny April day and about 21c the water was a little too cold for me!

We were dropped off at the Main port Grand Marina with a choice to take a bus the Funicular or a cab up to the town of Capri. There was a further option that Luisa explained to us which was a semi private bus (this is not affiliated with You Know!). For 15 euros each the bus would take us up to Ana Capri where we would have approx. 2 hours before meeting at the terminal to be taken down to Capri again for approx 2 hours after which the bus would drop us back to the port where we started. This compared to about 8-10 euros each taking buses and the Funicular. We decided to take the semi-private bus as it gave us the opportunity of seeing both towns while others wanted to ride the Funicular.

We headed back after 4 hours on Capri, with a cold beer on board and a very happy group of passengers. We were picked up from the port in Sorrento and dropped off just a two minute walk from our Hotel. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Luisa and Federico were absolutely lovely and worked very hard to make sure we all enjoyed our day, we saw everything that we had hoped to see and did it in a relaxed way in good company without the crush. Have a good trip!

Our tour was great! Pick up was easy and efficient.
Just be aware upon arriving at the port there is multiple people and boats going at the same time so you have a little wait to get called for your group.
Once we boarded it was seemless! Federico was our Capt and guide for the day (normally they have two on board but he did awesome) along the way he gave information about the sights and history.
Drinks and snacks provided for everyone (alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages) while we had time for swimming. Then continued on with the Capri island tour before docking for island time.
My husband and I opted to take advantage of the bus ride (your own cost) to Anacapri side of the island with our 4 hours. We did the chairlift and it was beautiful. We were given sandwiches prior to docking so we kept ours and had a picnic at the top area of the chairlift. Views were incredible!
Time does go fast so be aware of that cause crowds/ lines for things can eat into your time.
Taxi are very expensive on the island but if you’ve the money then go for it.
Once back in the boat we stopped again for some swim time and pictures before heading to the port.
Overall, we had the best day and a great group on our boat. Federico was funny and interesting- had lots of great things to add to our tour.
We did this as a part of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it!!!

We had a great boat ride from Sorrento to Capri with our guide Francesca and skipper Tomasso. It was a rainy day but the two made sure we all stayed dry and were comfortable. There was a cool surprise Prosecco moment with corny love music :) For lunch we got a yummy Caprese sandwich and later on also Limoncello. We couldn’t enter the Blue Grotto due to the high tides but this gives us another reason to come back. On the island we booked a private bus tour for 15€ directly through Francesca and we explored Anacapri and Capri within 3-4 hours. I would recommend this tour when you only have 1 day for Capri as you pretty much see everything in 1 day.

We really enjoyed our day with Roberta and Federico! The whole experience was very well organised including the transfers from our hotel which were included. We were picked up at 9.30am and the tour started very promptly after we arrived. There were only a few people on our boat (we had booked the small group trip) and there was lots of space to lie out and relax. The boat was beautiful, clean and well maintained, it had a platform at the back (with some steps) which made getting back on board after swimming easy! Roberta was friendly, attentive and a great hostess. Federico was a great captain, he took us into these tiny caves and grottos and showed us some wonderful swimming spots! There is a perfect amount of time in Capri, long enough to take the chairlift to the top of Monte Solaro and explore both anacapri and Capri. It was great value and we couldn’t have asked for more - would highly recommend booking.

This trip is by far the best experience we had on our honeymoon in Sorrento!

We were able to enjoy a private experience visiting the coast of Amalfi/Capri while visiting all of the grottos the coast has to offer. Our new friend and tour guide, Federico, explained the history of the area in great detail and treated us as if we were family. He not only helped make recommendations as to where we should eat, swim, and enjoy our day but he also was in contact to help arrange reservations the next day!

We highly recommend this trip and feel that the cost and experience are well worth the cost of a private boat. Please don't forget to request Federico when you book, he was the one who helped make our trip unforgettable.

Thanks again,
Scott & Jackie

We really enjoyed the Amalfi day cruise.
We were picked up by private driver, Massimo, at Amalfi and driven in comfortable mini bus to Porto Marina by 10am. Here we awaited to board the boat - at 10.30am. We had Luisa and Luca as our guides - who were very knowledgeable and considerate. The cruise took us around Capri Island and there was time to go swimming. We were then dropped off on the Island for 4 hours at our leisure - I would recommend taking the furnicular to Capri and consider walking to Anacapri as the bus was very crowded. Return journey from 5pm, arriving in Porto Marina by 5.30/5.45pm.
The tour company provided snacks, sandwiches, cake and drinks. Altogether very good day !

**let me start with my complaints about the operator “You Know!”, and I ask that more people post these kinds of complaints or they will never change**

We were picked up at the hotel for a 10:30 trip departure. By 10 we were at the tour operator office with ~100 people taking various tours offered by the operator. We waited and sat there with nothing to do until 11:05 when our tour was finally called to depart. This means the operator was happy to waste an hour of our vacation because they were not able to stick to a schedule. When we asked about leaving late we were assured that it was going to be an 8 hour tour regardless and that we would come back 30 mins late to compensate (more on that later)

On to the tour which was fantastic. The boat was big, comfortable, the captain and guide friendly and capable. We drove out to Capri, then spent a couple of hours circling it in the boat. We swam, saw the important landmarks then docked in town and were told to meet back at the dock 4 hours later.

We had a great time exploring the town of Capri, eating lunch, shopping and… oh the gelato!!!

Anyway so it turns out there was some kind of concert in the port that evening so we had to be back on the boat by 5:15 and then back at the tour operator before 6 (yeah so our 8 hour tour turned into 7 hours losing 30 minutes to the late start, then 30 minutes to the early departure with no apology or compensation from the operator.

Then to add insult to injury we sat around for another hour at the operator while they waited for other tours to return before we were taken to our ground transport back to hotels.

Please call these guys out for this lazy bad behavior there is no excuse to leave your paying customers standing around outside your office because you can’t get your logistics straight

Bon voyage!!!

Wow what a fantastic day!!! From start to finish - picked up on time from our hotel and left in the very capable hands of Mariano and Peppe who were brilliant. There were four of us girls and we were put with another four girls and we had so much fun.. the Prosecco kept coming and we were given snacks and a huge tomato and mozzarella baguette which saved us lots of Euros in Capri! Great fun on the way back whizzing over the waves and we would t have changed anything… thank you You Know! I must also mention that the office had been very cooperative in changing out date 3 times and stuck to the price even though it was two years after our original booking and do the cable car on Capri!

What a great day on the sea with Rosie and Luca! Attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and so much fun. They made the day perfect! Rosie made sure everyone on board heard everything while keeping us laughing and Luca handled the boat with experience well beyond his years. Thanks for the best day of our 2 weeks in Italy.
