What people are saying about Palma Beach

Great trip offering the full range of experiences from tortuous coach trip through the mountains, to wonderful boat trip to the lovely port of Soller, to the tram from the port and then the wooden train through the orange groves back to Palma. A chance to swim in the beautiful sea at La Calobra a massive bonus too - take your swim suit and flip flops. Worth every penny.

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.

Fantastic way to see lots of the island in one day. Breath taking views throughout the whole trip. Swam in Sa Calobra - well worth it.

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.
