Could probably book TUI tours, Have a look on their website.

Have a look at the Sorrentoinsider website as well - thatís who we booked our boat with for Capri (the actual company was called
Restart Boat) as they have lots of tours. We used Antonio Cooperative for the Amalfi/Positano tour.
Iíll have a look. Thanks

We did this tour yesterday after booking it the day before:
tripadvisor/Attrac...s_Campani.html

We had a fantastic day! We wanted to go to Capri but didnít want to spend too much money on a tour , so picked this one, even though it didnít include the blue grotto.

They picked us up from our hotel and brought us down to the boat. We then sailed over to Capri and they pointed out a few things along the way and we saw the green grotto, and I think white? And also the romantic grotto. They gave us 4 hours on the island to do whatever we wanted, so we wandered around Capri and then got the bus to Anacapri to do the chair lift to the top (highly recommend!) and got some gelato. We then got a taxi back down to the boat to go back (we couldnít figure out if there was a bus back and didnít want to be late!). They then sailed for another short time and stopped for people to go swimming in the water for around 45 minutes. My husband canít swim so we just dipped our toes in. They then sailed us round the rest of the island before heading back.

We got picked up at 8 and then dropped back at around 4:30. They provided sandwiches for lunch, and then gave us crisps, fruit and a little sweet treat throughout the journey, and also a glass of wine, a Prosecco/limoncello cocktail, and a shot of limoncello.

They done temperature checks, there was hand sanitiser on the boat and a toilet. Masks worn in the taxi to the boat, and not needed on the boat unless you wanted to. The tour is only for 12 people and it felt like there was enough space.

I highly recommend and would love to do it again!

When we went on our round Capri trip, we were warned about queuing boats at the blue grotto. He was not joking. The skipper gave us options of..
1. Queueing up.. which he estimated would take over an hour and a half.
2. Going elsewhere round the island and having a longer swim.

We took option 2, a unanimous decision amongst the three families on board.

Not to the tour we booked, but they told us if we wanted to organise that ourselves whilst on the island we could do that! They said there was a queue, and they took us past on the way back and you could see the queue of boats!

We only waited about 10-15 minutes at the grotto in our boat.

Just got back from a week in Sorrento, had a lovely holiday even though the weather wasn't great on a couple of days. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Aminta which was fab, amazing views!
