We visited Sorrento in May and decided to rent a private boating experience through Restart Boat tours. Their service was incredible and very professional. Our Captain, Francesco was amazing and took us to all over the island of Capri and we were able to see all of the best sites. We had free time to eat lunch and explore the city of Anacapri. Highly recommend this outstanding company. Thank you for making our honeymoon special - this was the highlight of the trip.
We were picked up from our hotel in Sorrento and driven down to Marina Grande where our private boat arrived. Had a great time onboard, towels and prosecco provided and plenty of room to relax and sunbathe. Our skipper recommend a great place for lunch on Capri which we both enjoyed. Great weather, fantastic way to see the Sorrento coast and Capri. Thank you!
