It was an interesting trip, I could see a lot and have the experience of boat, train and tram. The most we stayed, as a break, was 2 hours at Sa Calobra - where you have two options - eat and get souvenirs or take a bath on a nice strip of water just as the one at Cala D'Or. I took the first one as even though it's mid September, at the beach it was very crowded and the sea was agitated. If you want to have a seat up on the boat not down on deck then you need to be with 40 min before the departure date on the boat. Overall it was worth the money.

Amazing, food was delicious, sangria made by our barman was so good. Party was atmosphere great. Good vibe. It was my birthday. It made me ten years younger. Would recommend it highly. Organised, professional. Cook DJ and skipper, assistant skipper girl were amazing.

Michael was a knowledgeable guide who knows Mallorca and its history extremely well. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, as well as the tapas lunch in Port de Soller which was included in the tour price.

What a great day! From start to finish our guide Tolo and driver Jose were absolutely fabulous. The bus, train and boat rides were amazing. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Mallorca.

Highly recommended all excellent all around from crew food drinks and sailing
