We have spent an amazing day full of surprises ! The train journey was beautiful and the guide's knowledge of Mallorca was vast, which made the rest of the day (visit of Sóller, Port de Sóller, Deia, Valldemossa) quite interesting. The typical tapas we ate during the day were delicious and the landscapes amazing. The good humor and the anecdotes of the guide made us spend a really pleasant day and the weather was beautiful (28°C even though end of October). We recommend it !

It is a great program, the two caves are marvellous. Well organised trip with a longer free time at Porto Cristo, so you can swim in the sea. Please, if you book this excursion tell your kids beforehand that it is NOT funny to hold a clapping contest while the quartet plays classical music at the lake in the cave.

Alejandro is en excellent guide, the program is well organised. We definitely recommend both the agency and the exact activity.

Very nice atmosphere, happy party and nice people on bord including crew.

Great way to see the city in a short amount of time!
