“Highlight of an already amazing trip”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We booked a full day trip to Capri. Our boat captain Alessandro was wonderful! He was very friendly, spoke English very well, and explained much of the history of the area. We stopped in a number of beautiful grottos to swim. We also went through the Tunnel of Love at the Faraglioni Rocks twice for good luck! We enjoyed our first trip so much we booked another half day trip along the Amalfi coast. I'm not sure which one we enjoyed more. A private boat tour is really the only way to enjoy the natural beauty of the area and swim in incredible waters and grottos not accessible otherwise. I would highly recommend it!

“Not what was promised”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Let me 1st say overall the boat trip was a decent value- A great way to see the coast from Positiano to Amalfi. Paid for 1/2 day for 4 of us. Initial problem was guide/skipper spoke very little English and we spoke less Italian. Made asking about the sights long the way very difficult. The woman at the desk who took our reservation said we could stop anywhere along the way and swim. That was what we wanted to do. She made it sound like we would have plenty of time for that. On the way out we did stop at one beach. We passed a couple spots, in particular a place called "Arco di Amore" he said we would stop and swim at on return. Dropped us off in Amalfi. Had just under 90 minutes which goes by fast when trying to get lunch. When back in boat he wanted to take us somewhere for lunch but when we said we had eaten he said well we'll head back but didnt have time to stop? Was it because we didnt go to the place they get some kickback? We had an argument about stopping to swim on way back. Was told it would be 50 euro more because we would be back late.. He got his boss on the phone and she allowed him to stop at "Arco di Amore" for my wife and I to swim but it left a bad taste in our mouth.Was also told would be drinks on the boat. 4 waters for 4 of us for 4 hours. Not enough. (I had naively assumed beer too) Just make sure you know what you are getting into
