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 !

The tour was well organized and a wonderful experience. Due to the organization we didn't have to queue at the train, but were greeted directly with the tickets. Our guide Johannes was super friendly and we had a lot of fun with our tour group, which was small and manageable, just perfect. The highlight was the stop at Hotel La Residencia, where you really felt exclusive and had an amazing view. Just perfect all round and we are very glad we booked this tour.

We loved this tour! The historic train ride was picturesque and fun. (Tip: Try to sit in the front cars that used to be “first-class seating,” but are now open to anyone.). We enjoyed the opportunity to experience three lovely villages — each uniquely special. Our guide, Johannes, was terrific too! He was knowledgeable and super fun to hang with all day. I highly recommend this trip and be sure to ask for Johannes!

Juan did a great job of keeping us entertained and informed throughout the trip. The transfers were made with ease. The experience was enjoyable and I would recommend to other holidaymakers. Francisco did a great job of driving us through the mountains and on our return back to our hotels. Great to see a part of the island not previously enjoyed or seen. Well done to 'no frills' also for making this available.

Really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide Catalina has a great sense of humour, lots of interesting facts. Smooth trip into the.soller valley and Valdemossa which is difficult to reach on public transport
