Very well organized, small boat and group of people, we had a great Skipper that brought the boat in the caves. It was great and we enjoyed the entire boat ride.

Don’t go if you don’t have insurance

Do not go on this tour if you have ANY pre-existing health conditions - or if you just generally value health and safety. No lifesaving vests and the “skipper” was obviously driving the boat without any concern for the well-being of his passengers, especially those of the female variety whom he was obviously trying to impress by getting them as beat up as possible. My back, neck and tailbone are still reeling from this experience. Reckless and liability are my two main words describing this.

The captain, Franco was absolutely awesome!! We were 8 on the tour and we were very comfortable. He took his time and explained what we were viewing and took us into so many caves. The campaign toast was the best as were the snacks. We had a fabulous time. I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic excursion. Lots of people and boats so book early. The meeting spot shows up on Google maps. Really nice little town with a few restaurants, hotel, and mostly private rentals.

YOU HAVE TO DO THIS! This was absolutely amazing! It's roughly a two hour tour — the guides are incredibly friendly, absolutely hilarious, and honestly made our entire trip! We were visiting from America and this excursion was one of the best choices we made. Don't think twice!

Amazing time ! From start to finish the crew was amazing - Christian and Nico the skipper were so sweet and attentive. We truly saw the beauty of the caves in an exciting speedboat - where Nico explained and taught us the history of the caves and the surroundings. It was truly a wonderful time. I would do it again and again - bacio Nico e Christian

The grottoes were incredible and well worth visiting, but it felt like we were strangers on a private birthday cruise for two young women. Nicola gave them his full attention. A not so great experience for the other guests. Go see the grottoes but maybe choose another tour.

good boat tour overall!

we walked to the meeting point from polignano (~40min) but I think there was a car transfer option available that I wasn't aware of. the tour started on time as one of the tour guides checked us in in front of the abbey. good boat tour overall, visited many caves, drink+snack stop at one of the caves. there wasn't much input from the tour guide but he did point out things from time to time. the tour was a good length and we appreciated the good sights. we didn't stop for a swim - this might have been weather dependent.

We had an awesome time touring the caves with our captain Pepe. His expert piloting into tight caves and fun attitude made the day very enjoyable. There were only a few other couples on the boat, plenty of room. Highly recommended, ask for Pepe if possible.

The meeting point was confusing as it was different to what was on the ticket, but luckily the tour operator had been in touch via What’s App in advance. We had some rough seas and got a bit wet, but it was really fun. Having Prosecco in a cave was a highlight. Our captain was great as well as the other passengers.

The guide/skipper was very thorough. He explained the caves and the different names/formations. The boat ride was smooth and refreshing. Taralli I and sparking wine was served. It was a very enjoyable two hours.
