Pros:
Took all the hard work out of arranging our own excursion.
Collected us in a minibus outside our hotel and took us to the boat.
Plenty of space on boat.
Gave suggestions about what to do on the island we went on the chairlift in Anacapri which I recommend, then took the funicular from Capri town to the port.
Nice captain, expertly navigated around Capri and positioned the boat well for photo opportunities.

Cons:
Okay if you want to very briefly see Capri, but there is a lot to see there. The public transport has long queues, so you need to allow a lot of time unless you pay for a private taxi legally they must all charge a flat rate of 25-ish Euros for a ride. You need longer on the island if you really want to feel like you've 'done' Capri. We didn't eat during the tour, and definitely would have been pressed for time if we wanted to do the activities and have a relaxed lunch.

Note: The boat itself cannot go into the Blue Grotto. You have to pay for a separate tour to take you right into the grotto in smaller boats. You do have the option to pay for this add-on through a third party company while touring around the island, but our captain strongly advised against it because there are long queues. Just be aware the green/white grottos that the boat does visit are not cave systems, just patches of coloured water in the ocean. No one has to pay a fee to see them. They are not as impressive as the blue grotto.

This is a very good trip and deserves a great review. I hope this review gives others the confidence to see Capri via this perfect little tour.

Firstly, this method of getting to and from Capri is amazingly good value for money when compared to either the cost of the ferry or hydrofoil. And, you get to travel much more exclusively - with just a small number of others on a private boat. Throw in the fact that you'll receive a boat tour of the entire island and get to see all the grottos and navigate through the Faraglioni as well, what's not to love!

So, we were picked up in Sorrento at the agreed time and location via a small, modern minibus fitted with lap belts. We then had a short 10 minute ride to get us as close as possible to the small, beautiful harbour - with just a short walk, a lift ride down to the harbour and a further short walk to the checking-in office. From getting off the bus to getting on the boat was probably about 30 minutes all in.

We boarded our boat there were just 10 people in total on our boat, although the maximum is only 12 and commenced our boat ride across to Capri. Sitting aboard the boat while the captain navigated the sea felt really special - and far better than being on a large ferry or hydrofoil with 100's of others.

Once we arrive at the Capri harbour we were given a short briefing about finding our way around Capri and we then alighted with just short of 4 hours of free time to explore. For us personally, this was sufficient time to 'dip our toes' into Capri and get a feel for the island. If you really wanted to explore both main parts of the island you would need longer than this tour provides.

Our captain collected us promptly at 1:45pm from the allotted place in the Capri harbour and then began the next part of the tour. Our boat navigated around the entire island and although the boat was not able to enter the blue lagoon as you have to enter on much smaller boats we went into both the green and the coral grottos and navigated through the Faraglioni rocks to the sounds of Amore by Dean Martin. Having kissed my new bride under the arch of this beautiful rock, we were assured of ever lasting love!

We now set on our way back to the harbour - via seeing the natural fresh water spring falling through the rocks into the sea - and our tour was complete

All in all, I think from start to finish the total trip was approximately 8 hours from pick up to drop off.

This was a brilliant tour choice. The tour company was very professional and we received excellent communications from both Viator and the tour company from the moment we booked. The coach and boat seemed modern and in superb condition and all the staff involved throughout each element coach driver, the staff who escorted from and then back to the coach, the checking in staff and the captain were friendly and helpful and looked after us throughout.

As stated in my introduction, this was also exceptional value for money and I cannot recommend this tour more highly.
