We did the half day visit to the Caves of Drach and would really recommend visiting them it was a wonderful experience ( wait until the end with the orchestra’) My only downside was we had to wait over 30 minutes for the coach to pick us up in the morning and we were stuck at the docks with nowhere to get a drink etc

Pablo and everyone of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful during the tour, even providing recommendations for where to go on the island after the ride was over. It was a beautiful day for a ride and a nice intro to other parts of Mallorca.

Good way to get about and see palma, all the stops are well marked and they now have an app which makes if even easy to check bus times and the route

The buffet was delicious, the waiters very nice and the dj at the top, I highly recommend

Great tour. Everything was planned and carried out flawlessly.
