Guide was very good but the tour only lasted just over an hour when it was advertised as two hours. Also, we nearly missed it as the booking information didn’t explain that guides would be wearing ‘City Experience’ shirts and the pick up point wasn’t exactly where we were told. We only found out when we went to ask them if they knew where our tour was five minutes before it was due to depart!

Me and my friend thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Paulo was knowledgeable. He gave lots of facts about the cathedral and Majorca. We travelled around to various places.in Palma. Some we wouldn't have seen if on foot. I was surprised that it only took 5 minutes to be comfortable on the segway I was a bit shakey but I soon got used to it. It was absolutely brilliant and I recommend this tour.

tour was very informative and gave time for you to do things on your own. Visiting Valldemossa is a MUST DO! Very beautiful and you get to see where Chopin the composer boarded for some time (extra payment for the monastery tour). Cathedral is BREATHTAKING! Would recommend guides assist better with connecting tourists to the transportation area for travel to Valldemossa.

The cove/place to swim, where we stopped with the catamaran, was not that special, but okay. The food was good and enough for around 70 people on the boat. Age of the group was between 18 and 60 and there were groups as well as couples and single travellers. The boat had more than enough space for everybody. Boat is quite new, looks nice.
Although the weather didn't cooperate that afternoon, it was a really great experience. The crew, the food the whole trip was really great. We (five people between 18 and 63 years of age) can only recommend this trip.
Definitely saved waiting in a huge line. So easy to organise too.
Nice to buy tickets in advance Tip add possibility to visit tower
Just amazing! The vibes ,the music,the crew! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
