Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 226 reviews

We up-graded our ticket for €11 each to include the views from the roof of the cathedral and this was really worth the extra. The views of Palma city and beyond were spectacular. I suggest you book this before you go and possible save a little more. There are 142 spiral steps to encounter but you can take your time and not be so out of breath. The cathederal is beautiful and if you have only a short time to spend, then the self guided tour at €6.77 is excellent value. The 24 hour Open-Top bus tour from outside the cathederal is another must do. It is only €9 for seniors and gives you a history of the city. You can hop on or off at 18 stops when you want to investigate further. You can also add a boat tour to your ticket for a little extra.

The app was really easy to use,the e tickets were sent straight away with a confirmation email. The app tells you which entrance to use too. We used it to book tickets for Palma Cathedral and it's well worth a visit. Simply stunning.

Sergio and his colleagues were very welcoming and an excellent tour guides. The bicycle route could easily be done by an amateur rider. There were multiple stops along the journey to describe significant moments in Mallorcan history.

Nice trip with about 3 hours stay in Palma. Then about 30 minutes drive to Valldemosa. Guided tour with a competent guide. Everything went well and we can recommend it to others.

Sergio gave us a very enjoyable ride and gave us some interesting facts about the area. We then had refreshments and tapas as part of the tour.
