This was one of the best tours I ever did! The boat is great and there and #39;s only 12 people per tour. The captain is really nice and told us lots of stories. One tip is to ask him a few time to swim while in the boat since the free beaches in Capri are crowded.
Everything was very good organized! Very polite people. The driver, the skipper. Only the price was a little bit expensive compared to the price at the port.
Capri is absolutely gorgeous - and Luigi boat tour guide was amazing. We stopped twice to swim once before stopping at Capri and once on the way back home. We also had about 3 hours to explore the island. I would do this tour again in a heart beat.
The only bad thing about the this tour was the driver who picked me up in the morning. He decided he wasn't going to take me back to Naples after the tour - and left me stranded at a random hotel in a random town about an hour or so away from Naples. My choice was to take a taxi to the nearest train station - or have the taxi take me back to Naples, which cost about 80 Euros. Not good at all.
The skipper was permanently on the phone - obviously with his girl friend. His command of English was not existing. In principle great tour. However, the skipper could have showed at least some interest for the guests....
The boat trip was wonderful, and just as described. There were refreshments -- not enough beer for 12 people, but the skipper also offered wine and Limoncello on our way back from Capri.
What the description doesn't state is that it is a 90 minute ride from the pick up point to the boat and the driver speaks little to no English. If you need to stop to use the restroom, the answer is no. If you need to understand how much longer the trip will be, the answer is no with the possible clarifying addition of some hand signals and an annoyed face. Also, thanks to Italian traffic, we returned almost an hour late. Do not book this excursion if you have to catch a flight or train that day.
Overall the excursion is worth it, but I wish I had more information before heading out. I would have brought my own drinks, and planned to be in the car for 3 hours total.

This is a terrific tour in theory but you need to work some kinks out.
Our driver picked us up at central station in Naples but had us sit in the very back seat of van when we didn't pick up another couple for over 30 minutes. This was on a hot day through windy roads and was not pleasant. We didn't realize that the drive from Naples to Sorrento would take well over an hour, if we did, we probably would not have taken part in this tour.
There is a mistake in the copy re this tour. It says take a deep in the water, I did not read this as dip, as it should have, so we did not have our swimsuits, which was very upsetting. We were given 15 min to swim and provided snorkeling equipment! This is not advertised well at all on Viator.
It also says that we needed our passports on the tour. We definitely did not need our passports and it just added extra stress having these on our person while on a boat.
Finally, the trip back to Naples was a nightmare. We were stuck back in that back seat of the van again and had to drop off two other couples first, both at their respective hotels which was convenient for them but a long nuisance for us. To make matters worse, the driver got lost several times and we were driving aimlessly around when we were expecting to have a direct ride back to Naples, where it wasn't even to our hotel like the others!
The entire tour took 11 hours. Even if the driver hadn't gotten lost, it still would've lasted 10 hours, door to door, not 8 as advertised.
I think viator is great, I have used it for years and recommend it to many people. This tour could've been 5 stars but unfortunately it was not.
