My wife and I charted a private boat from Positano to Capri, and it was easily our best day on our Italy honeymoon. Ivan met us at the docks outside our hotel, and took us all around - the Island of Sirens, we stopped in Capri, and then we went all around Capri checking out the different grottos. He was super nice and talked to us about plenty of sights as we went around, but also let us have a romantic quiet time amongst ourselves. Highly recommended! Reasonable price compared to other companies too. One thing to note... they say they can do credit card but it's obviously not ideal for them as they need to take you to a cafe on Capri and use their credit card machine. Best to bring cash if you can.

The tour around the island was stunning and the boat driver was knowledgable and the trip was very informative.

My criticism is that the boat trip was not as advertised. We did not receive any of the complimentary drinks and snacks, the boat trip was 20 minutes shorter and there was no snorkelling.

Overall I would recommend this trip as a good way to see the island however do not expect any of additional add-ons.

Booked on Capri.com only 2 days in advance...recommend doing it earlier in the day before the heat and the other boats get on the water. One of the best parts of our trip...we were even able to go early which was great to beat the crowds. Too high tide for the blue grotto but made it to the green one before crowds and had a private swim. Our guide was excellent, non stop information and he was a local which came with great tips. I had read other reviews about how the drinks that were advertised didn't come with--we brought our own thankfully so had some cold champagne thanks to the cooler provided. Capri itself wasn't great but this boat tour was wonderful.

I booked this tour based on TripAdvisor reviews. I was staying in Sorrento and was planning on taking the ferry to Capri for the day to take the tour. I received one email from the company after I booked saying the time and price and that until payment was effected I was not confirmed. I received no information about a meeting location and no final confirmation that my payment was received. There was no information on the website about a meeting point either. I called my credit card company who said that payment wasn’t charged. I did not want to spend the time and money to ferry over to Capri without any confirmation when I never received further information. After discussing with my husband, we decided not to ferry to Capri since we had no information from the company of a meeting place and no official confirmation and we couldn’t get in contact with the company. I received an email thirty minutes after the tour was suppose to start saying where are you and then a second email giving a location meeting point. This was well after the tour should have started and I did not have cell service while away from the hotel. Ofcourse the company decided to charge the credit card after the tour did not take place which I have had to dispute. I would have been happy to go on this tour if I had known where to meet them or had received any information from the company after booking. I only received return emails after the tour when I was charged. The owner said he sent me three emails...which is correct. One that said reservation is not yet confirmed, and two after the tour was suppose to have started, of which only one listed a meeting point.

Do yourself a favor and book a different tour company for a cruise around Capri. We ended up booking through another company who gave us multiple confirmation emails and told us exactly where to meet them and at what time.

I rented a private Gozzo tour from Sorrento port to Capri and back for me and my partner and it was THE highlight of our vacation. Our Captain, Ivan, let us bring a bottle of prosecco on board as well. He was kind and told us little anecdotes but was not too intrusive, it being just the three of us on the boat. He let us take lots of photos and you could tell he liked what he did. He did smoke a cigarette on the boat, I mean, It's not the states I get it, and it is his boat, I was not down wind either, so it did not really bug me, just not the most professional thing in my opinion, though, I realize I come at this through a different cultural lens than others. I called the number for the booking service the day before our trip once I got to Italy and I was given Ivan's cell to coordinate directly with him which was great, he was responsive and told us when and where to meet him in Sorrento. He also met us on the opposite side of the island of Capri to pick us up to go back because we took the wrong bus down from the top. Very kind. I would 100% recommend this company, we feel it was worth the price, it was luxurious but relaxed and we felt very at ease on the day trip. I hope to go back one day.
